1. System Admin T-Shirt

2. Alexa Appreciates Dad Jokes!
Do you know those crummy and dorky jokes that fathers love to tell when they’re out and about? If you’re anything like the average person, you smile and cringe at the same time while giving a loving chuckle to your dad. This holiday season, why don’t you give your father an Alexa so he can learn some one-liners to use this year!
3. Bigfoot Lives
Nothing gets changed out more often than old, smelly, crusty mousepads. Instead of forcing your tech-savvy relative to go another year with the same pad, give them the gift of bigfoot riding a unicorn. Not only will this mousepad help them complete their projects in a timely fashion, but it’ll give them a laugh every time they look down from their monitor.
4. Virus Protection
For readers that often use Windows as their main operating system, you will be familiar with the Windows Defender software that protects your system via a hard-to-bust firewall. In our current COVID-filled society, now is the perfect opportunity to extend your firewall into a real-world setting! This face mask will keep you safe and make people around you smile with joy.
5. A Programmer’s Mug
Do you know someone that works within the field of software engineering or information security? If so, this programming mug might be the gift they’ve been looking for. As any professional programmer knows, your syntax doesn’t come alive until you’ve had a hot cup of coffee. Until then, don’t bother them!
6. Star Wars Kitchen Set
For millions of people across the globe, Star Wars is more than just a movie; it’s a religion. Knowing this, getting the Star Wars fan in your life some themed kitchenware may be the perfect gift this year. The next time they cook a big meal, they can be accompanied by R2-D2, Yoda and the death star.
7. Light of My Life
Do you know someone that lights up your eyes whenever they walk into a room? It could be from their radiant personality, glowing affection or perfect comedic timing. Whatever the case may be, light up their toilet this holiday season as a way to pay them back for the joy they’ve brought you after all these years!
8. Christmas Vacation
For those of you that love the cult-classic Christmas Vacation, getting your loved ones or friends a movie-inspired mug will surely brighten up their mood. In the movie, Clark and Eddie are sipping eggnog while looking at Eddie’s RV parked in the driveway.
Eddie tells Clark not to get too attached to the vehicle because he’ll be taking it with him when he leaves “next month.” After hearing this, Clark spits his eggnog all over the floor in shock, revealing his famous moose mug.
9. Personalized Socks
With the colder months upon us, items such as socks, scarves and mittens are needed to trap the warmth close to us. However, giving standard socks is boring and dull. Instead, take a picture of a friend or family member making a funny face.
When you have some private time, go online and order that individual some personalized socks with the face they made plastered on the outside. This gift will be useful and give the recipient a good laugh in return.
10. Addressing the Neediness
Do you have a pet that can’t seem to get enough of your affection and love? You could be in the middle of a Zoom conference call or studying for a test, and they’ll plop down and take a snooze right on your keyboard.
Playing into this need for attention, we can plan a funny prank on our family and friends. Inside the Pet Petter box, we can plant a thoughtful and endearing gift that will surely be appreciated by the recipient. However, when they open your present and see the Pet Petter, they’ll have to pretend to enjoy your gift. Once they open the box, they’ll see the real gift waiting for them. This idea is a great way to pull a fast one on friends and close relatives.
Never a Dull Moment
Although these gag gifts are more geared toward the tech-savvy crowd, it gives you an idea of what you can plan for the upcoming holidays. Let your creative and comedic side take over as you plan your gifts for this upcoming season. While the world may be in a state of anxiety and dread, these gifts will lighten the mood and get the party started.
