How to Make Sure a Gag Gift Goes Down Well
So you’ve decided you want to get someone a wacky present. Maybe it’s your goofball coworker, the class clown, or your sibling.
Maybe it’s even your spouse! No matter who it is, most people often feel a little bit of hesitation when it comes to a jokester pick.
If you have decided you want to go for the jokester type of present, there are some simple ‘guidelines’ to follow that will help make sure it goes down well. Wondering what they are? We’ve got them! Let’s dive right in.
1. Make it practical as well as funny
A great way to pull off such a gift is to make it actually something useful. Not only will they have a good laugh, but they can also actually put the gift to good use later.
This could be some useful items for the kitchen that have funny sayings on them or something like a USB drive or keychain that looks like something totally different.
At first, it seems like just something to laugh about, but then when they realize they can actually use it, they will totally love it!
This is a great way to ensure the item is appreciated and goes down well. It isn’t just a useless item to laugh at and toss aside, there is some thought involved with it so that they can use it in the future. It’s perfect!
2. Avoid on certain occasions
Valentine’s Day? Not a great time. Your anniversary? Not the best. Birthdays are typically a safe time to go for the gift or something like a graduation party.
Special occasions that are meant to be just between you and your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend are seriously risky times to go for this type of present.
We recommend saving it for another time unless you want to accidentally ruin the evening!
Mother’s Day is another major holiday that we think is best to focus on other items!
3. Make sure you know their sense of humor
The key to a good jokester present is that it is something that the person on the receiving end will think is funny - not what you think is funny! Do they appreciate more adult or inappropriate humor?
If they don’t, an inappropriate item is an easy way to accidentally offend them instead of making them laugh. What about bathroom humor?
People tend to either love it or hate it. If you aren’t sure, don’t risk it. Your hilarious gift can turn into an awkward moment really quickly.
Instead, think about what their sense of humor is and get them an item that fits their personality.
That way, even if you don’t particularly find it funny, you know they will, and that’s what giving a gift is all about!
4. Give it at the right time
Make sure you give the present at the right moment so that it really has a chance to be appreciated.
If you are at a birthday party, maybe don’t give it while some older adults are around that may not appreciate it as much. Save it for later!
5. Follow it up with a ‘real’ gift
Getting the laugh from the gift is great, but you don’t want them to then have their feelings hurt that you didn’t put some thought into getting them an actual present.
Follow it up with their real gift and there’s no chance of them feeling that way.
The thing about extreme gifts is just that, they are supposed to be funny but aren’t supposed to be seen as a real pick to get someone for their birthday or other special occasions.
Make sure you put some thought into getting them an actual present as well so that they feel appreciated on their special day.
