Humorous Holiday Gifts
Ugly Christmas sweaters
Bing Shopping | Ugly Christmas sweaters
Remember when ugly holiday sweaters were hidden in the deepest recesses of our closets lest their terrible powers be unleashed on the world? Well, now we buy these suckers as gifts and proudly wear them. Kitschy, corny or ironic – whatever you call ‘em, they’re the gag gift par excellence.
Bacon candy canes
Bing Shopping | Bacon candy canes
Judging by all the bacon-related products on offer (and there are legion), we’re guessing it’s America’s number one food group. How to choose from the endless variety of cured porcine treats? Go holiday happy and satisfy both sweet tooth and meat tooth with bacon-flavored candy canes.
Bing Shopping | Lincoln bandages
Abraham Lincoln is hot. Between the endless stream of scholarly books being written about him and the Oscar-magnet movie just released (not the mention the vampire hunting), our 16th President continues to gather quite the buzz. He also has the power to heal. Boo-boos that is.
Bing Shopping | Instant snow
Dreaming of a white Christmas? While many get waaayyy too much of the snowy stuff this time of the year, some folks living in arid parts of the country see nothing but a slight touch of frost on the palm leaves. Gift your snow-free friends some fun with a blizzard in a bag.
Hot guys and baby animals calendar
Bing Shopping | Hot guys and baby animals calendar
Can’t decide whether they’d like a super-hot beefcake calendar or a super-cute furbaby calendar? We’ve just solved another gifting dilemma with this all-in-one collection of monthly bliss. Kittens, puppies and bunnies make their appearance, and the only chicks involved are of the avian variety.
Fake tattoo sleeves
Bing Shopping | Fake tattoo sleeves
If you gift a faux tattoo sleeve to your kid sibling, don’t blame us if Mom freaks out – some of these look surprisingly real. Usually made of comfortable stretch nylon and festooned with vibrant colors, they’re a no-risk way of trying tribal or going old school and wearing your heart on your sleeve.
Giant googly eyes
Bing Shopping | Giant googly eyes
You know that saying in the fashion world, “black is the new black?” Well, in the visual gag universe googly eyes are the new fake handlebar mustache. Faux facial hair has had its day and something else has captured the hipster’s well-honed zeitgeist-determining attention. Big, crazy-wiggly googly eyes it is.
Bing Shopping | Inflatable wreath
Talk about an evergreen! With this piece of fantastic plastic one need never worry about pesky dropped pine needles or what you’re going to do in March when you finally get around to taking down the old brown withered wreath from the front door. Gift it to the relative with the most hot air.
iPlunge cellphone stand
Bing Shopping | iPlunge cellphone stand
Don’t be fooled – this just looks like a gag gift. In reality, it’s a very practical little gadget that solves the problem of how to prop up cellphones for better viewing. We think these clever toilet plunge stands bring a note of je nes sais quoi to any coffeehouse tabletop they’re perched on.
Bing Shopping | Coal candy
Know someone who’s been more naughty than nice? They rate a lump of coal in their stocking this year. It’s a traditional “gift” for all the bad little boys and girls, but coal candy makes the whole thing less Dickensian and a little more humorous. (Not to mention lip-smacking. Real coal just isn’t very palatable.)
