3 Funny Cheap Gag Gifts that are Sure to Make 'em Laugh!

Parking Ticket Gag

Parking Ticket Gag Gifts

If you know someone who gets a lot of parking tickets, this gag gift could bring a big laugh, however I'm not personally endorsing them ... they're funny but not nice!
There's insulting messages on them, so be sure the person you're giving them to has a very good sense of humor.
A lot of people purchase these to put on cars that park illegally at the mall or on the street. I just couldn't do that, and was shocked to read the stories of how they've been used! Bad, bad, bad.
You better be sure of the laws before you start plastering them over other people's cars!
But hey, as a Secret Santa gift for the "right person at the office" this could be perfect; particularly if that person is the type who takes other people's parking spaces!

If you're wondering what's listed on the ticket, here are few boxes that can be checked off when handing them out: They aren't called 'Big Mouth' tickets for nothing!

  • Parking too close to a real car
  • Creating a parking space
  • ...and more...that I can't (won't) type here! 
  • ...so you'll have to read them for yourself on the ticket!

A Flying Screaming Monkey - Gag for a
Flying Monkey
Stressed Out Co-Worker?

Is someone in your office running around in circles, maybe pounding their fists on the desk? Can you hear screams of stress coming from their office? 

Do they curse their busted-down computer too much? Are they just generally off the wall? ....and finally did you draw their name for a gift at holiday season? Oh goodie! 

If so, stop the hunt because this funny monkey may cause some giggles and help them unwind (for at least 10 seconds). 

Stretch it back and fling it, and listen to it scream. Not a lot of money for a ton of laughs!
Leg Lamp

How about the Classic Leg Lamp from the Movie "A Christmas Story"

This is a "clean" gag gift for Christmas. Choosing a gag gift for the holiday season needs to achieve two things: 
1. Make people laugh and 2. Don't offend anyone. Of course, if you're aiming to offend, that's a different thing.
If you know someone who's a big fan of the movie "A Christmas Story", this is the perfect gag gift. There's a following of people who love this Christmas movie and this lamp featured in it is not only funny, but also symbolic of the movie.
This leg lamp night light is approximately 8 inches tall, and it's made of plastic and features a nylon fringe surrounding the lamp shade (as seen in the movie). It plugs into a standard outlet and uses one C-7 Watt Bulb which is included.

So have fun handing out laughs!

Christmas Movies Reviewed: Comedies

During the holidays, I frequently need a break from decorating and cooking for guests.  It is at those moments that I reach for a Christmas movie that will make me laugh.  I always feel rejuvenated after resting and watching a comedy that really makes me laugh till I cry.

There are two Christmas movies that are great comedies that our entire family loves, so no matter who is visiting, I know these movies will be fun to share.  

If you haven't seen them before, get ready for some real belly laughs! 



 

A Christmas Story  (Rated PG)


A Christmas Story (Full-Screen Edition)A Christmas Story (Full-Screen Edition)Check PriceI will admit, "A Christmas Story" was not a personal favorite until I was married and old enough to identify with the characters.  There were highlights in the movie that would make me laugh when I was a child, but now I absolutely roar with laughter over the "relationship" with the leg lamp, and I can certainly imagine big dogs eating our Thanksgiving turkey.  Those things were simply too far from my own personal experiences as a child for me to really understand how funny they are to parents.

The "gift" from Aunt Clara has significance to everyone!  Don't we all receive gifts we end up wearing just so the giver thinks we like them?  While the bunny outfit might be a bit outrageous and exaggerated, I think we can all appreciate Ralphie's plight, but I especially "appreciate" the father's reaction. 



As you can well imagine, there are several gifts that are perfect for "A Christmas Story" fans.  You can see them here:  A Christmas Story Gifts



Christmas Vacation (Rated PG-13)


National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Special Edition)National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Special Edition)Check Price"Christmas Vacation" starring Chevy Chase and a host of other favorite actors, is my all time favorite Christmas comedy.  We actually watch it several times each year and still laugh like it was the first viewing.  

There are so many wonderful characters that make this movie great.  All of the actors do a tremendous job, but the outlandish actions of Cousin Eddie throughout this movie, either remind us all of a relative or make us appreciate our own relatives more.  

Randy Quaid very nearly outshines Chevy Chase in this movie.  Truly, one without the other would not be as funny.  The two together make Christmas Vacation a fabulously hilarious comedy.





This movie has a PG-13 rating for good reason. While we all find it hilarious, it really is not appropriate for children due to profanity and adult situation references.    

You can find a selection of gifts for the Christmas Vacation fans here:   "Christmas Vacation" Gifts


More Christmas Comedies


I am sure I have left no doubt in our readers minds, that I suggest breaks full of laughter, from the work surrounding the holidays. Finding something that makes us laugh adds to the natural rejuvenation of our body and spirit which will help us to enjoy our holidays more thoroughly.  

Here are a few more Christmas Movies:  Comedies that will make you laugh out loud.
