My friends and I are notorious for birthday gag gifts. We’ve had this tradition for so long we’ve run out of ideas.
Note to the reader: Before I continue I’d like to warn that our tradition of gag gifts started in our teens and has continued throughout our married lives so some of this may be a little crude for the sensitive reader.
Here is a list of gag gifts I’ve given or received:
On my 18th birthday my buddies went through their rooms and gathered up all their junk. They gave me everything from old trophies, gold metals, highlighters, old Easter candy and a bunch of other junk. It was priceless.
Key to making this fun: When you give the gifts to your friend you have to act like you’re giving them you’re most priced possessions. Cheese it up.
2. A Monkey piñata
If you know your friend will have family members coming to the party it’s a perfect time to punk them. This happened to me. My whole family was at my party and my buddies came in with their gifts. They had a piñata of a monkey. I could already feel my face heating up as I anticipated what would ensue. But, my family had no idea what my friends had planned or what the piñata was filled with so they started to encouraged my friends by saying things like, “Oh a piñata how fun.” and “What a great idea!” Long story short, as I held the broom in my hand swinging at the monkey my friends began chanting, “beat you’re monkey! “Beat your monkey!” My embarrassment peaked. As the contents of the piñata began to emerge, it was filled with male g-strings and other embarrassing paraphernalia.
3. Color Dyed KY jelly
Once we gave one of my friends an extra large bottle of KY jelly that we added blue dye to. We could barely contain ourselves as we waited for our friend’s body parts to mysteriously turn Smurf blue.
4. A package of Douche bags
5. A Package of Dependeds
(adult size diapers)
6. Viagra bottle filled with Tic Tacs
Make sure you don’t give real pills, it’s illegal.
7. Male enhancement pills
There is so much of this crap out there! You can get free samples and they make a great gag gift. Be careful though, some of these companies make their money by offering a free trial and then they put you on an automatic shipment scam and charge you over and over.
8. Laxative brownies
Be careful this stuff can be potent.
9. Enema kit
10. A bag filled with oregano or powdered sugar
This has great White Elephant gift potential! Just think of the reactions.
Or If you have a cop friend and want to have a lot of fun hide the bag in your friend’s car and set up the fake sting. We did this to one of my friends. We got an off duty cop to pull him over and search his car. The cop went all out! It was priceless! The cop cuffed him, interrogated him and almost had him in tears. What really topped it off was that the friend we pranked is the most straight shooter I know. His reaction was priceless!
