We eight days into December and I’m sure there are some holiday parties on the horizon for you if you haven’t already had some. Many times, these parties involve a gift exchange of some sort, but more often than not you don’t know the people you’re giving to well enough. Actually, most of the time, you probably don’t know what they like at all. Well here are some universal gag gifts that I believe would go over well with anyone at a Secret Santa or White Elephant gift giving event.
Personally, I’ve never played this game, but I’ve heard wonderful things about it. Also, you can’t really go wrong with giving away a party game. In some cases, you might be able to play it right there at your Christmas party. But regardless of if you do or don’t, I’m sure that person will be happy to have it to break the ice at other parties/get-togethers. This item is $16 or $25 depending on where you buy it.
Remember the Staples, “That was easy,” button. Yup, this is the better less kid friendly friendly version. I’m sure we’ve all wanted to call BS on someone at work, school, wherever. Here is your opportunity, and I’m sure it’ll bring a smile to the face of anyone who is receiving it as a gift. This item ranges from $5-$9.
Practical gifts are always great because the person you give it to will definitely get a lot of use out of it. Sling bags are awesome for a number of things, but especially the extremely outdoorsy person. Whether it’s for hiking, going to a festival, or anything in between, this small bag allows you to accomplish your tasks hands-free. As a disclaimer, they labeled this bag as a women’s bag, but who genders sling bags? It comes in bright yellow, pink and black and is and is under $17.
Again, another practical gift, or at least it is in my eyes. I’ve always wanted to make my own proper latte at home, and you can’t truly do that without frothy milk. Well, search no further the answer is here. Whether the person you’re giving to is a big latte fanatic or not, I’m sure they can find a use for this awesome tool. I mean everyone drinks hot chocolate at least once during the holidays, right? This product is just under $12.
Everyone poops. Girls do it, guys do it and yet some people are still embarrased. Well, to limit the embarrasment and leave any bathroom smelling better than it did when they left it, you can give poo-pourri. So may think it’s sending the wrong message, especially if you don’t know the person, but honestly, I think you’re just introducig them to a tool they never knew about. You’d be surprised how many people avoid going to the bathroom in public places because they don’t want to “embarrass” themselves. They might be secretly grateful you gave it to them. This item is under $15 for 1.0oz.
Unless the person you’re giving to doesn’t drink at all (which is totally cool) I think anyone would be excited to get this. No more broken corks that you have to push into the bottle because you messed up the first time around. Take the guess work out of it and allow them to enjoy their wine faster with this electric wine opener. This item is under $21 depending on where you buy it from.
“Raining Men” Bubble Dome Umbrella
Now, this is more for women or gay men, but regardless it’s definitely a piece that can put a smile on anyone’s face. If worse comes to worse, everyone knows at least one woman who would appreciate this punny umbrella. This umbrella is under $20.
Maybe you happen to know the person you’re giving to voted for, or in this case didn’t vote for. Well, perfect give them some toilet paper of their least favorite candidate so that they can show them how they really feel. If you don’t know who they voted for, give them both and let them choose. It’s less than $7 each.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it. I also hope your secret Santa and white elephant gift giving parties go over well and that these gifts took the guesswork out of choosing a gift.
