Funny gifts - To give or not to give? {Think About It}


Funny Gifts?

Do you give funny gifts?  I'm not really a funny gift giver. I like to appeal more to the sentimental side of people when I give a gift. I enjoy the thought going into a gift. The hunt for that perfect gift that someone will cherish for years to come (or as long as it will take them to eat...I give a lot of food gifts).
So I can't really think of any funny gifts I've ever given. I'm not sure I've ever received a funny gift either.  Though there was this one time, my brother gave me, I guess a funny gift. I thought it was pretty neat, and I still have them.
One part of the gift was a Barbie Wedding Dress (no doll included). His reasoning behind it, was because someday I would get married.  True that! Maybe I should have looked to that dress for inspiration before purchasing mine, but I didn't. I still have it somewhere though!
The second part was a model car. It too is in storage somewhere, or I would tell you what model, but it is a nice silver car.  My brothers reasoning for this gift? Because someday I would have my license and be driving around.
Mind you at the time he gave me these, I was I think 10 or 11. I thought they were the coolest gifts ever!  He was probably trying to be funny.
Now cards! I do have a funny card from my brother. The picture was 2 eggs sitting on a beach. One was cracked and frying. The other had his sunglasses on and relaxing with a quote bubble "Bob forgot his sunscreen" or something to that effect.
How about you? Do you give funny gifts?
I'd love to hear about them.

  1. My husband and his friends from college had a stuffed fish that kept being giving over and over again. Sometimes it would just show up in someone's luggage.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from my readers <3
