Chances are you have a friend, family member or coworker that’s hard to shop for. You go to buy them a gift for a holiday or birthday, but you just can’t think of what to get. You’re in luck, though, if you’re shopping for someone with a sense of humor. There are tons of funny gifts out there that are just waiting to be given to a person who will appreciate them.
It’s best to buy a humorous gift for someone in an area that they already have interest in. For instance, Think Geek has some great gifts that are hilarious, but only to the right person. This Cube World Digital Stick People toy for instance, would make a technology buff chuckle, but maybe wouldn’t seem so funny to a golfer.
Stupid.com has more funny gifts on one site than you’ll see combined on many others. It’s even got a great gift for your Mom (or other cooks in your life), the Peter Petrie Egg Seperator. (Click on the link and you’ll see what I mean.) They have gifts seperated by category, like Gadgets, Tools for Cooking, Political and even gifts under $5.
If you’re more into funny apparel, try Wacky Planet, where they have many different types of funny shirts. If you’re truly irreverant and into Japanese culture, go to the store at Engrish.com.
One paper catalog that often sells these types of gifts is The Lighter Side (also available online). This catalog stocks gifts from the actually funny to ones that might just make you smile, including shirts and other home items, even gags like fake dog doo.
Finally, not all people like to shop online or through the mail. That’s why there are stores like Spencer’s, a gadget and joke store that’s located in many malls throughout the country. This store has much of the same types of gifts found at the online retailers listed here, but you can handle and really inspect the merchandise there. Also, there are no shipping charges. Happy (funny) shopping!
