Picking the right, unique gift for someone you barely know or know too well, is probably the hardest task ever. And sometimes, after skipping through hundreds of gift ideas, you might just decide to go with some hilarious gag gift and end the struggles before you lose it completely. And if laughter is the best medicine, then the receivers of these Christmas gifts will probably never get sick.

Now, we can all agree that being presented with a well thought out, creative gift is a truly pleasurable experience, but not everyone gets what they expect! That's why Bored Panda decided to take a look at some of the most unexpected and funny gifts that people got this year.

From crazy packaging pranks to hilariously oversized clothes - this funny gift ideas list won't disappoint you. However, our personal favorite is the present consisting of two suitcases that a 24-year-old living with his parents got for Christmas. Ho ho ho!

They're pans for traditional rice-pancake from my country. Try it out: Ingredients: 2 cups of Rice Flour 1 cup of coconut milk 1/2 cup of brown sugar 2 tbsp of melted butter 1/4 tsp or salt Mix Rice flour with butter, salt, and coconut milk, then divide it into two. Add brown sugar to one of them. Heat the pans stove top, cover with butter thinly or baking spray. Apply 4 tbsp of the white mix, followed by 4 tbsp of the brown mix in the center. Cover the pans, cook for about 3 to 5 minutes.
