I have a "short" friend and every year for Christmas and birthdays we give each other a "short" gag gift. However, I'm at a loss as what to give him this year. Can anyone give me ideas on a good gag gift I can give him that relates to being a short man? I gave him a catalog for his birthday for clothes for the short man.
How about some shortening, or short bread cookies?
How about home made shortbread cookies, or shortcake, or a package of Scottish shortbread?
Or a can of shortening? Like he needs to be shortened more. . .
I'm so funny.
Are you sure he thinks these gag gifts are as much fun as you do? I know a few short men who have great senses of humor, but after a while that joke wears thin, and truth be told, they are as sensitive about their height as anyone else is about their own "shortcomings." No one likes their inadequacies continually pointed out to them. Maybe it's time to step back and reconsider. He may be short in stature, but sounds like a very big person with a huge sense of self.
Thanks to everyone that responded. Lots of great ideas. As someone said in one of the posts, eventually this will wear thin. I will have to come up with just plain ol' gag gifts. Once again, I appreciate everyone taking the time to respond to my question.
A pair of children's knit gloves in a wild color in case he expects to be "handled with kid gloves" as many people do.
Providing he has a good sense of humour (which you both seem to have), how about giving him a pair of wrist sweat bands but tell him they're legwarmers? :)
How about a can of "shortening"?
A beautifully decorated home made strawberry shortcake U^u*U
How 'bout a pair of shorts? or even girls "short shorts"?
How about a mushroom shaped pillow he can hide under in case it rains?
How about a money tree. Get a nice branch, paint it red, I used red nail polish, then once dried, tied bills to the tree as leaves. Placed the branch in a pot and gave it as a beautiful gift.
I think making some "BBQ Short Ribs" would be appropriate!
assumming he likes the joke thing and wants you to continue it each year, what about pencils sharpened really short, you could even get them with his name on them.if you know his age get that number of pencils
