Where to Buy Wacky Gifts Online and in the Real World
The perfect wacky gift, or gag gift, can be a challenge to find,
so make sure you consider both online stores and real stores. While
some gifts might promise to bring a smile, sometimes when you actually
get them in your hands they fall a little short. So shop carefully.
You need to take your time when seeking a unique gift, a wacky
gift. You really cannot just run off and buy the first thing that
catches your eye. If you do buy the first thing that ends up in
your line of site, you really will end up with something ... unworthy
... in many instances. While it is fun to be wacky and to buy a
unique gift, it also necessarily takes time and effort on your part.

Shopping for a Unique Gift or a Wacky Gift in the Real World
As always, the standard in wacky gifts in the mall is Spencer's.
Almost every town has at least one mall that contains a Spencer's
and you can buy lava lamps, posters, retro items, gag gifts, practical
jokes, and more. Another good place to look for practical jokes
is a magic shop or game store, many of which are also found in shopping
Understand the Person for Whom the Gift is Intended.
Sometimes wacky depends on the person. If you know someone with
eccentric tendencies, such as hating the feel of cleaning fluids,
buy them a year's supply of rubber gloves. It may be a gag gift,
but the gloves will probably get used. Sometimes the easiest way
to find a gag gift that normally doesn't serve as one is to check
out crafters' malls and toy stores. A word of caution: if a phobia
is involved, don't do it. Phobias can be debilitating, and would
likely make it worse.
