There is nothing quite like mastering the art of the prank gift. Scoring an instant laugh when your friend opens their gift is it’s own type of victory. But what makes the perfect gag present? Any present that gets a laugh and doesn’t cost too much money is a great candidate for a prank gift.
As you prowl the web for the perfect buy, there are some key factors to consider.
When buying a prank gift for your friend, you want to pair humor and usefulness. The best gag gifts are products that your friend will use regularly, share with others, and of course, laugh every time they look at it. Think of everyday items with a twist.
It’s also important to know your audience. A prank gift for your parents will look vastly different than one for your best friend. Fortunately, you can find gag items ranging from witty to crude.
To get you started on your search, here are some prank gift ideas that are sure to get a laugh.
