Homemade Gag Gifts - Tips for Joke Presents

Are you seeking ideas and tips for giving homemade gag gifts?

Nothing much can be more enjoyable than a gag gift, but before you just give anything, there are some things to consider with this type of gift giving that you should be aware of.

For instance, does your recipient know that you're giving a gag gift? When you follow these simple steps, you'll find that you can give gag gifts that will be remembered for a long time.

Know the rules

Before you give just any homemade gag gift, you need to know the rules for the occasion. By rules, you're basically just trying to think about what will be considered to be poor taste or hurtful to the recipient. Here are a few to consider:

  • What is considered poor taste? Some people aren't bothered by things, while others are. Take maxi-pad slippers, for instance. While these are a very, very funny homemade gag gift to some, others might find it mildly offensive. One great way to find out if a person would think something is offensive is to ask those who are hosting the gathering; and if you're not going to a gathering, why not consider the person's personality?

  • Another type of gag gift that many think is absolutely hilarious for someone who has hit a certain age is to buy some low dose aspirin and label them as anti-aging tablets. Include a picture of an old person changing to a young, svelte person on the label. However, if you know that your intended recipient is sensitive about his or her age, you might want to shy away from this sort of thing. In other words, if someone is going to have their feelings hurt, you should avoid this sensitive area.

  • Re-gifting your worst gift of the previous year can be great fun and a really wonderful home made gag gift, but you should make sure that the person you're giving it to wasn't the one who gave you the gift in the first place. Once again, this can fall really flat, so if you have people's feelings on the line, you should make sure to be considerate.

  • Pull ideas for homemade gag gifts from a person's life or childhood, and don't be afraid to look around your house for inspiration. Sometimes, even a hideous, leftover lamp from your yard sale can make a great gag gift.

Don't be afraid to be creative - but make sure your recipient "gets it"

One thing to keep in mind when you're giving homemade gag gifts is that your joke is only a good one if the person you're giving the gift to gets the joke. Not sure what this means? Well, in short, we all have "oddities" that we and others make fun of. It's all in good fun and your recipient is probably aware of their traits that are laughable.

When you're making homemade gag gifts, you should concentrate on these traits, so that everyone will get the joke and have a good time with the gag presents.

It's not always easy to give a gag gift, let alone a homemade gag gift, but in the end, if you're creative and imaginative and use your sense of humor, you might find that you wind up giving the best gag gifts ever - and have more fun with it than you ever thought possible.

Have lots of fun, and a great laugh!
