Where to Buy Humorous Gifts Online and in the Real World
There is a plethora of humorous gift giving done every year and

at least one gift that brings a chuckle. There are a large selection
of sites on the internet as well as malls and shopping centers.
When it comes to gift giving, chances are that one of your unstated
(or perhaps even stated) goals is to give a gift that will long
be remembered. Because people today have to work so hard, they revel
in the chance to have a good, hearty laugh. Therefore, if you are
able to give a gift that brings a person the chance to chuckle --
you will have accompished something truly special.
Fun Gifts on the Net
www.surprise.com <http://www.surprise.com/> carries a large
selection of gifts of all kinds, and sports four pages of gag and
humorous gifts. From the beer belly water pack to crazy pool balls
and gag parking tickets, there is almost sure to be something for
everyone on this website. And parents everywhere can make good use
of the spy ear, a small amplifier with a high-powered microphone.
The folks at abernook.com have assembled a small collection of
humorous gifts, like stripping game decision dice, funny books,
and a golf voodoo kit. Don't forget to visit one of the many websites
that offer humorous t-shirts and other clothing.
Fun Gifts in the Brick and Mortar World
T-shirt shops in the malls and shopping centers also have a wide
variety of humorous sayings, and often you can create your own.
Remember that humor relies on incongruity, and any gift can be humorous
if it emphasizes opposites or inconsistencies. A word of caution,
though: make sure you don't point something out in an attempt at
humor that would hurt the person. Sensitivity is a must.
A Night Out and About on the Town
You can also treat someone to a night at the comedy club or a magic
show. Magic shows often include humor and sight gags. Another fun
thing to do, if you have the talent, is to create a funny video
and give a DVD of it to your friend. Remember, again, that humor
to one person may not be humor to another.
Once again, by buying or arranging for a humorous gift, you will
bring a big blast of fun to a person's life. Laughter is the best
medicine and you will be bringing a magnificent dose.
