Homemade Christmas Gag Gifts
& Holiday Gag Gifts
Make some homemade Christmas gag gifts, and do your part to stop the insidious trend of people taking Christmas far too seriously!
Every Christmas I see people stressed out, worrying about money, shopping until they're at the point of exhaustion, arguing with their relatives, and generally taking it all far too seriously. Talk about ironic!
For me, Christmas is about good times and laughter with your friends and family. So I've collected together some homemade Christmas gag gift ideas to bring some laughter and get you all in the mood for Christmas cheer!
The most extensive list of homemade gag gifts you're likely to find anywhere is on my Homemade Gag Gifts Page . Have a browse through the ideas there, if you haven't already. While they aren't Christmas-specific, they do work well as holiday gag gifts.

Christmas Newspaper Gag
Use our free online newspaper generator to create a silly newspaper article about how your dad or grandad is Santa's closest living relative. This is a homemade Christmas gag gift like they will never have seen before :-)
Personalized Likes Poster
Make a personalized poster gift that celebrates all the quirky things they like. For instance, my dad *needs* to hold the remote when he's in front of the TV. Making your poster is easy, using our poster-maker. Just customize and print at home.
Short on Dough?
Wrap up some cookie dough nicely and attach a little not saying "I thought this might come in handy, since everyone's a little short on dough around Christmas time".
Dear Santa, I can explain...
I saw this one in a joke store, but it's easy to make yourself. For someone who's been naughty, to help them stay in Santa's good books. Get a Christmas tree decoration (a star or bauble), and put a sign on it saying "Dear Santa, I can explain...".
Not as disgusting as it sounds, I promise! The perfect homemade Christmas gag gift for kids, and those adults who haven't yet grown out of toilet humour (i.e. most people). You can make up a whole platter of all different sorts of Christmas poop. Don't feel that you have to stick rigidly to the types of candy I've suggested - just use whatever you've got handy.
Each poop even has its own poem. I didn't write most of the poems, by the way. They just seem to float around on internet without attribution. If anyone knows who the original authors are, then do let me know .
Chocolate Coated Apricots, or other large, choc-coated candies.
"Dash away, Dash away, Dash away all."
But soon we discovered, out on our lawn,
Santa and his reindeer were all gone.
With our little shovel we started to scoop,
All of the droppings ... "YUCK", reindeer poop!
But then we so generously filled up your sack.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas and enjoy your snack!!!
Christmas Elf Poop
Red and Green M&Ms. Here's the "traditional" elf poop saying. It didn't rhyme very well, so I modified it a bit.
And Santa had to fill all those stockings
He looked for other ways the elves could bring joy
So here are your Elfin Droppings
And here's a limerick that my husband and I came up with. It's pretty dreadful, but at least it's completely original! When you read it, the emphasis should be on the bold words.
And couldn't make toys quite so quick
So what could I do
To find gifts for you ?
I hope these elf poops do the trick! .
"Fun Fairy", one of our readers, sent in this hybrid poem they came up with:
And couldn't make toys quite so quick
Santa looked for ways to fill your stockings...
So here are your Elfin Droppings!
Marshmallows, or some sort of mints.
So here's the scoop
Your Christmas present
Is Snowman poop!
He left just one clue...
This little green pile,
Of Grinchy "Pooh".
But why did he do it?
Did he want to get caught?
As the Grinch would say,
"I most certainly did not!"
But Santa and the reindeer
(with nose set on dim),
Landed on the roof,
And scared IT out of him!
He left in a hurry -
Leaving little green piles
All over the ground.
Christmas Mouse Poop
Chocolate sprinkes, or small sweets.
Guess what some little "creatures" were doing instead?
Little mice were making their stops
And, of course, they left their teeny-tiny "plops".
On Christmas Morn I did awake,
Oh me, oh my, oh goodness sake!
Those adorable rodents had left such sweet gifts,
So I gathered and packaged them up in a jiff.
And, now, this Christmas I present to you
This little bag of mice "doo-doo"!
Baby Ruth bar (or other chocolate bar).
This homemade Christmas gag gift poem is exclusive to homemade-gifts-made-easy.com ... because Tobias and I wrote it. Okay, so it's not a great work of literature, but remember that you saw it here first folks! :-)
The results were really very clear
He checked it once, he checked it twice
He saw that you've been not so nice!
So when he came to fill your stocking,
He did something rather shocking...
"What could be so bad?" you say,
"Could it really spoil my day?"
Well here's what I saw Santa do
(I'm sure he did it just for you)
I saw him squat,
just near this spot..
And with a grunt, and with a whoop,
He left you with fresh Santa poop!
Christmas Toilet Paper
Sticking with the poo theme, here's a great homemade Christmas gag gift idea shared by Annie from Kadina, Australia...
"I wrapped a toilet roll in wrapping paper, decorated it with ribbon, and added the message below. The reaction I got was great! People really liked them and were not offended by the card which read:"
Money is scarce and times are hard,
So I'm giving you this instead of a card,
Christmas cards come in a glut,
And this will be handy for wiping your butt!
