Choosing funny Christmas gifts for boys makes it easy to find a gift for the boys in your life. Young boys are notoriously difficult to shop for, as you can never be sure what's "in" or not. A funny gift will at least make him laugh as he opens it up.
Boys often like to play jokes on their friends or family members. Visit a practical joke shop and look for things that you think might interest him. This might be fake ice cubes with bugs inside, fake blood, or the classic itching powder.
Since these gifts tend to be small and cheap, you can make the gift seem more significant by creating a gift basket full of similar joke items. It can keep him entertained for hours, though his parents may not be thanking you.
A movie or DVD set can also make him laugh. Spongebob Squarepants is a favorite funny TV show with boys of all ages. You might also consider movies like the Shrek series, Ice Age, or Kung Fu Panda, which all feature creative, funny story lines.
A single DVD can work well as a gift if you're working hard to fit gifts in your budget, but you can expand the gift idea by including a portable DVD player or packaging it with popcorn and candy.
You may not think that boys spend much time thinking about their clothes, but if you give them some funny clothes, they might have a new favorite item. Look for T-shirts that have funny sayings on them, but take care to find one that's age-appropriate, as some T-shirt slogans can be crass. At the mall, you might find these at a store like Spencers or Hot Topic, but you can find funny T-shirts online too.
Another option for older boys is to look for clothes that feature cartoon characters made for much younger children, such as Sesame Street characters. It's popular for older boys to wear such things in an ironic-funny way.
A good, funny book could encourage the young boy in your life to read more, so it serves a double purpose. Books tend to be a somewhat personal item, so ask about his tastes before you make a purchase.
Comic books can be a smart way to get boys into reading. Captain Underpants may not be your first choice, but the boy who receives it may find it hilarious. If you prefer to get a novel, you might try "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" or anything in the "Series of Unfortunate Events". Other funny books for boys include books of jokes or gross facts.
Any parent can tell you that boys find poop and farts funnier long after you really think they should. You could use this to find funny gifts for a boy.
For example, you could get fake poop or vomit from a practical joke store. Whoopie cushions are almost always a big hit, but you could get the newer electronic "fart machine" if you want to go high-tech with the fart jokes. Couple these with a foul-scented "fart spray" and you've got yourself a funny gift.
