Window Shopping: Sustainable Gag Gifts

Gag gifts are funny as part of the office gift exchange, but they're usually not sustainable. The gag gift gets a laugh at the White Elephant or Yankee Swap, and then goes straight into the trash. Below are some of my ideas for gag gifts people will actually use.

Cotton Candy

The best gifts are something people wouldn't purchase for themselves but might enjoy, like cotton candy. Make it a weird flavor and now it's a charming gag gift someone may never admit they ate in one sitting.

  • "Unicorn Barf" Rainbow Cotton Candy, $10 (Amazon)

  • "Dragon Breath" Maple Cotton Candy, $10 (Amazon)

Scented Candles

The best gifts are something people wouldn't purchase for themselves but might enjoy, like cotton candy. Make it a weird flavor and now it's a charming gag gift someone may never admit they ate in one sitting.

  • "Smell My Nuts" Hazelnut Candle, $16 (Amazon)

  • "Graveyard Dirt" Candle, $25 (Etsy)

Toilet Paper

After COVID-19, the joke hits different with custom toilet paper.

  • "Pumpkin Spice" Toilet Paper, $7 (Amazon)

  • "Don't Fall In" Toilet Paper, $6 (Etsy)

Shaped Soap

They smell nice, just look weird!

  • "Hot Dog" Lemon Soap, $10 (Etsy)

  • "Chicken Nugget" Lemon Soap, $17 (Amazon)

Flavored Soda

Unlike the soap and candles, these don't taste good but they can be recycled!

What other gag gifts are both funny and useful? Let me know in the comments below!
