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.
If you're looking specifically for homemade Christmas gag gifts, then keep reading below.
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.
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 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 italicised words.
"Fun Fairy", one of our readers, sent in this hybrid poem they came up with:
Marshmallows, or some sort of mints.
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.
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! :-)
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!
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:"
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".
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...".
