Gag Gifts for Guys
Gift: The Clapper
Nothing says your buddy is slowing down like The Clapper. Even if his joints give out, technology won't let him down. Next to the TV remote, The Clapper may be humanity's greatest invention ever.

Commemorates: Road trip or hotel stay gone bad. Real bad.
Every guy has his shining moments of flatulence. (Girls, if you don't think your dude gets bad gas, think again. He's probably hiding it from you.) For that friend whose efforts rise to the top, as it were, nothing says "I don't want to travel with you again" like Beano.
Gift: Beer Helmet
Commemorates: Getting older
Perhaps the most useful item on this list, the beer helmet harkens to the carefree days of college. Remember when you used to drink beer from cans instead of bottles? Bonus companion gift: generic beer t-shirt.
Gift: Exploding Golf Balls
Commemorates: Questionable sports talent
This is best given as a surprise, i.e. when you distract your buddy on the 13th hole and replace his real ball with one of these, because he's sliced his last 12 tee shots into the adjacent fairway.
Gift: Kid’s Toolset
Commemorates: Questionable handyman talent
Not all of us are blessed with mechanical skills. For that friend who's always falling off the ladder or who can't hang a picture straight, this gift says stick to the playground and hire a professional.
Gift: Princess Leia Wig
Commemorates: Being in charge
When most guys think of Princess Leia, they envision a different accessory (you all know the scenes in Return of the Jedi). But the wig says two things: that your pal likes to be in charge a little too much, and he's a bit of a princess about it.
Gift: Assorted Fake Doughnuts
Commemorates: Change in body size
The assorted fake donuts cruelly beckon "Here I am, come get me" without the sugary payoff. On the upside, they make for a nice table centerpiece and can catch the unaware off guard when they try to bite into one.
Gift: Kitten calendar
Commemorates: Getting involved too fast
We've all had a friend who goes from zero to 60 in nine seconds in a new relationship, and while we don't begrudge the guy for finding happiness, sometimes it all just seems too fast and cute. Get that guy a cute kitten calendar to remind him of the life he's entering -- or leaving behind. Hey, don't forget about your bros, K?
Gift: Big Boy Pants
Commemorates: Becoming responsible
A gift-wrapped pair of boy's size 8 jeans tells your way-too-immature-even-for-you-guys friend that he's finally made a decision you can all be proud of. Goodbye pull-ups, hello big boy pants.
