50 Christmas Gifts That Made People Laugh (New Pics)
The anticipation is in the air. The most wonderful time is upon us when families and friends gather to celebrate and exchange hugs, kisses, and gifts. If the task of finding a gift is one you struggle with, well, maybe it is time to go the funny route. Choosing a gift that's a bit less serious will lighten the mood for you and the person it is meant for. But just make sure that that person can take a joke, otherwise, it might become a bit awkward.
Gift-giving is all about relationships. It shows the other person that you think and care about them, and even a little gesture is enough. But due to the pressure of finding a perfect gift, we tend to overthink, and in the end, shopping can become an unpleasant experience. You would be amazed how many times people got an undeniably weird gift and felt like it was the best one of them all. That only proves that gifts are not only about the object but the emotional value it brings.
Luckily, this time of year, we at Bored Panda have prepared a list of the most hilarious gifts that have left a mark in hopes that it will make you feel less pressured, and maybe you will find an idea worth borrowing. For more hilarious gift content, feel free to visit our previous post here and here.

Even though we are sure you have your Christmas gifts ready and wrapped, we still would like to share some tips and tricks for becoming a better gift giver. Maybe it will make you feel more prepared for the next year or even on occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or spontaneous gifts. Yes, exactly, spontaneous gifts. They are fun both to look for and receive. If that is not something you do, we highly advise trying it at least once.
The fun thing about spontaneous gifts is that you never know what you will find and when you will find them, which can conclude in fun stories. Besides that, being open and on the lookout makes you think about the people around you more frequently.
Some people even choose spontaneous gifts for Christmas, birthdays, and other celebrations. They buy gifts over the course of the year and then gift them during important occasions. In that case, you will not be spending a big amount of money once, but small amounts over the year, and the struggle of coming up with gift ideas will automatically go away.

Another great tip that is easy to incorporate into your gifts even today is adding a personal message. It could be anything, from saying ‘I love you’ to a poem or a mutual joke. It will add sentimental value to any gift, whether it is a big expensive or a smaller one.
Something to also keep in mind when stressing over your chosen gifts is that no receiver compares which gift was better or worse or whether it matters that much. The thought is what really counts, and your present is basically you saying that you cared to remember this person enough to add to your gift-giving list.

But what you should add extra attention to is the presentation. I know it sounds weird to spend time and money on wrapping paper and extra ribbon, but the presentation is a part of a gift. So make some time and wrap your present thoughtfully. That will definitely add to the emotional part of the gift-receiving experience.

That's a nicer hint than coming home to all your stuff on the front lawn.
And last but not least, trust your gut. In case you see something that catches your attention while looking for gifts, it is your brain saying that that object reminded you of someone. That also works great for shopping off-season when you have a little bit more time. Just buy it and set it aside. Or at least write it down and make a list for later purchases, so you don’t forget it on your next last-minute gift shopping.

I put a nice gift in a self-made joke box for secret santa at work and the receiving person didn’t get that it was a joke box, didn’t read the back of the box, didn’t even look at the gift inside. She took one look at the box, looked super pissed off, put it away and didn’t speak to me the rest of the party. I spent so much time making that box and finding that gift that I feel like crying just thinking about how pissed off she looked. Never again!
Did she ever look in the box and see the nice gift you gave her???
I'm so confused by the concept of 'white elephant' gifts. Edit: Thanks guys.
i think it is where opened gifts are there and people go around and swap gifts with others - take turns or something and you have to swap. i'm in the us and really don't know for sure.
You bring a wrapped gift, usually something absurd, and everyone draws numbers. Person 1 picks a gift from the pile, then Person 2 can choose a new, random, wrapped item or steal an already open one. If you gift gets stolen, you're back in control, and get a new gift or steal something open (but that was not stolen this round). And so on through all the numbers until everyone has a gift...and there's usually a rule that something can only be stolen a set number of times, otherwise you just KNOW there's that one gift everyone will steal every chance
probably easy to figgure' out if you're familiar with it. sounds fun & confusing.
The important part is that it's a bad gift that nobody would want, but even then, there's usually a few outliers that people fight over because they're not *that* bad or people think they're hilarious anyway. It's hard to come up with a really "good" white elephant gift.
