Joke is On: Gift Ideas to Uplift a Sourpuss

There is something special about giving gifts. Sometimes these gifts are meant to be sentimental in nature, but there are times when you just want to give something just for the fun of it. The following are some great and funny gift ideas that you can give to friends or family members.


Giving others the opportunity to laugh is more meaningful than you might imagine. For one, it has been shown to help people live a little longer. One way you can help your friend or loved one have a fun day is give him or her the opportunity to be a kid again. It is not uncommon for adults to be a little stiff, but that does not have to be the case. Why not take your friend or loved one to a place where he or she can have fun like a kid again. It might feel weird at first, but it is going to be pretty fun.

Funny Props

Sometimes the best kind of joke comes in the form of a prop. There are many hilarious props out there that you can give your friend or loved one just for the fun of it. For example, you can give him or her toilet paper with the picture of an unlikable president. You can also pick up edibles that are not quite what they appear to be, like gumballs that look fruity but taste like pepper. The possibilities are endless, especially if you look on the internet.


Those who are a little braver might want to convince your friend or loved one to wear something hilarious. One good example is the ugly sweater, which you can sport with your friend or loved one for added fun. Some of these sweaters can look ridiculous, but that is the point. It might be embarrassing to walk out the door in these types of sweaters, but think of all the joy you are going to be bringing others by braving this ugly wear with your friend or loved one. Keep in mind that there are probably a few choices to consider as long as you’re silly enough.

Comedy Time

Another gift to give a person that really needs to laugh is a trip to a comedy club. This is not too wild of an idea, and it could turn out to be a great night for you and your friend or loved one. Be sure to attend a comedian that your friend or loved one likes. Do not worry if you do not know who your friend or loved likes because you can always go to a comedy club and hear a number of comedians at a time. Sure, you guys may not like all the comedians, but one or two will probably be okay.

Hopefully, some of these suggestions tickle your fancy and ensure that you have a great time with that special person that needs to laugh. Remember, some people have a hard time getting out of their shell. Be patient yet persistent if your friend or loved one is being a bit of a sourpuss.
