10 Things to Consider When Buying Prank Gifts
1. Make sure you have the right relationship
Do you have the right type of relationship that makes it appropriate to give a prank gift? It may not be right to get for your boss, but acceptable for a coworker (for example).
Make sure you know that the person will be a good sport about it before deciding to give it!
2. Go for their style of humor
Once you decide to buy a gift, the first thing to consider is the person’s sense of humor you are shopping for.
You don’t want to get something that fits your humor because the gift isn’t for you!
Really think about what you think the person you are shopping for would find funny and you’ll be sure to really nail the gift.
3. The occasion matters
A fun celebration like a birthday or graduation is perfect, whereas more intimate occasions like an anniversary or Valentine’s Day are less than ideal.
4. Think outside the box
Sometimes the most ordinary of gifts can make the most perfect prank present, it just takes a little thinking!
Consider their personality, sense of humor, and the occasion, and you might just come up with the perfect thing.
5. Follow up with another gift
Go for the prank gift, but then make sure you have something else to give them afterward!
This ensures that the first gift can be fully enjoyed and to make sure the person you are shopping for still feels appreciated!
6. Go for the pun
You really can’t go wrong with a good gift that involves a nice pun. This is more of a ‘hybrid’ gift that can still serve as an actual gift along with being a bit of a prank!
If you want something that gets a laugh but that isn’t fully a prank, this is a great option!
7. DIY it
DIYing gives you the power to create whatever type of gift you want.
You can be sure you end up with something that you know the person you are gifting will totally love it and find it hilarious.
There are plenty of tutorials online so you don’t have to worry, even if you aren’t incredibly crafty you can totally pull this off!
8. Be careful not to offend
Make sure that you don’t end up with something that may offend the person you are shopping for.
A gift can turn into something less than funny really quickly, so just make sure you are aware of any possible themes that may be off-limits.
9. Collaborate with friends or family
Why not let other friends or family in on the fun, too? Collaborate to either get one large prank gift or have everyone get a prank gift to really pull off a major prank!
This is perfect if you are shopping for someone with a great sense of humor who is always pulling pranks on others.
10. Have a prank go along with the gift
Don’t just stop with the gift! Why not also pull off a great prank that goes along with the gift?
This is a great way to really make the entire experience incredibly fun.
