Novelty gifts or “gag gifts” are trending for a number of reasons. First, that finding the perfect gift for someone who has everything really is impossible. The second reason is that gift giving can get very expensive very quickly unless some limitations are set. Don’t feel bad if you need to budget your holiday gifts because you are in the majority not in the minority. Times have changed and consumers want to give a gift that is thoughtful and affordable.
But what about funny? Instead of giving them a gift that they need or want, what about finding a gift that will make them laugh instead? Check out “99 Fun Christmas Gifts for Neighbors” for some more inspiration on thoughtful, witty and affordable DIY gifts from the writers at Six Sisters Stuff blog. You’ll find some creative and fun ideas.
1. I Am Not a Wine Glass
No really. It is just oddly shaped like a wine glass and will have that same classy appeal when you drink your beverage from it. However the “I Am Not a Wine Glass” product is made from durable glass that makes it one of the only truly portable and worry free wineglasses on the market.
Tip: Buy it for the person who knows everything about wine and can’t live without it. If you have an honorary sommelier in your circle they will completely love a worry-free wine glass with a spill proof, screw on lid and straw. The perfect party accessory for any cultured (or clumsy) wine drinker.
2. Sock Monkey Wine Caddy
There is absolutely no one on the planet who does not appreciate the esthetic of the infamous sock monkey. In this case the monkey has a very practical use which is simply to look awesome. It also is perfect for bottles that require refrigeration such as Zinfandel as the monkey wicks away condensation from the outside of the bottle.
Tip: Give it as a boxed gift or remove the wine caddy and put a great bottle of wine or champagne in it as a special gift. Watch the expression on their faces as you hand them a bottle of wine wrapped in a sock monkey. If you are aiming for a themed gift check out the Sock Monkey Key Covers because you can never have too many sock monkeys.
3. Grow a Girlfriend
Have a friend or relative that just ended a relationship? The “Grow a Girlfriend” might be the best post breakup gift ever! Think about the potential of this passive aggressive gift. First for the broken hearted the “Grow a Girlfriend” might be worth a good laugh which is healthy. For the habitual ladies man, consider it a sarcastic and thought stimulating gift or commentary on his/her dating life.
Tip: Make sure to provide instructions on what to do after he/she has grown her own girlfriend including how to communicate with a partner that does not speak. Priceless!
4. Two Carat Ring Coffee Mug
Hopefully this novelty gift does not land you in hot water (pun intended). Simply hold the mug and watch the handle transform into something that looks suspiciously like a diamond engagement ring. If you are considering giving the “Two Carat Ring Coffee Mug” to your girlfriend, consider that while it is just a mug the interpretation may be a little different. It might possibly be the most socially dangerous coffee mug on the planet.
Tip: Only give this gift from Funslurp only if you are certain that she has a sense of humor. Not recommended for gift giving for ex-partners or girlfriends.
5. The Knuckle Meat Pounder
Who said a product can’t be funny and useful at the same time? The hilarious style of “The Knuckle Meat Pounder” will have any muscle man in your life eager to help out in the kitchen or on the grill. Brass knuckle style, it might be the most interestingly designed kitchen product they own.
Tip: Definitely not recommended for travel and may be classed as a weapon. Leave it at home when travelling internationally to avoid any problems.
6. Facebook ‘Like” and ‘Dislike’ Stamps
If you have a friend or colleague that works in social media this is the perfect gift. Do they feel bombarded by requests to “Like” things on Facebook? If they do, give them the option to stamp around the house or at the office. This also makes a great gift for parents who can use the stamps on homework assignments, test results or teacher feedback. Tell them how you really feel with a cool set of “Facebook Like and Dislike Stamps”.
Tip: Be prepared to have people volunteer to tell you what they like or dislike. Or to have your hand stamps go missing for a spell. People like to ‘Like’ things online and offline.
7. Prescription Coffee Mug
A pharmacist, nurse or doctor will really appreciate the humor and fun of the “Prescription Coffee Mug” with no explanation necessary. Except of course who “Mr. Java Joe Espresso” is besides a reason to chuckle out loud.
Tip: This gift can also be combined in a gift basket with the “Prescription Beer: Kool Kooler” for a fun recreational matching set.
8. Six Pack Camo Belt
The seasoned beer drinkers will appreciate this gift of a camouflage beer holding belt. The design fits an entire six pack and can be strapped around the waist of the beer aficionado. Don’t leave home without it? It’s something like that for the real beer lover. “The Six Pack Camo Belt” is a fun and entertaining gift.
Tip: Not recommended for running.
9. BBQ Branding Iron
Think outside the box when it comes to this novelty gift. It can be custom ordered to feature your name to be seared on everything you grill. A conversation piece for entertaining but also humorous. Instead of a name, create your own custom phrase or statement like “Grill King” on the “BBQ Branding Iron.”
Tip: Can also be used on chicken and fish as well as larger flat grilled vegetables such as sweet potato and even for charitable fundraising or business events.
10. Hand Tossed Salad Servers
Make salads more fun and interesting with the “Hand Tossed Salad Servers” shaped like (you guessed it) two hands. If someone loves to entertain these make the perfect gift.
Tip: You can combine this gift with a great quality wooden salad bowl and some choice selections of vinegars and other dressings for a funny (but practical) gift.

Some people don’t just carve pumpkins, they create artistic masterpieces. The only differences between these people and the great sculptors in history is that unlike something like Michelangelo’s David, these pieces of art will not last forever. In fact, they will probably rot within two weeks after being placed out in front of the house. Either way, enjoy the most insane pumpkin carvings you will ever see.

Designed by OgilvyOne Athens, the bra has the ability to tweet each time it is unhooked. Now, before you go on a fantasizing rampage, the tweets are viewed as mere reminders for women to get checked for breast cancer. In fact, the tweeting bra was conceived as a part of Nestle Fitness’s new campaign that promotes breast cancer awareness and the need for women to regularly self examine their state of health.
