When you do not know what to give a family member for Christmas, a funny gift provides a unique solution to the problem and brings some humor to your family’s holiday celebration. Whether you are giving a gift to a sibling or presenting your entire family, any of these five funny Christmas gifts for family will work well. Keep in mind special family moments or inside jokes when choosing these gifts.
Photographs make a traditional holiday gift, especially when presented in a decorative frame, but you can add a twist to the tradition by giving a funny photograph. Browse your family albums for the perfect funny family photograph, place it in a decorative frame and write a suitable caption on the frame or purchase caption stickers to add your own caption directly onto the photo. Use a graphic editing program, such as Adobe Photoshop, to add family members’ heads to snowmen or place family members next to pictures of celebrities and print copies to share. You may also want to make a scrapbook of some of your family’s funniest memories.
Give humorous clothing items during the holidays. You may choose to give a sibling a t-shirt with a saying such as “I have the world’s greatest brother” or another saying to acknowledge your relationships as siblings. Use printable iron-on transfers to design a t-shirt on the computer for each family member. Include silly family nicknames and appropriate images to accompany them. Another option is to give everyone in the family matching holiday t-shirts or sweaters and take a family photograph.
Holiday decorations, such as ornaments, offer a keepsake gift for family members. Browse craft shows to find humorous ornaments. You may find an ornament with characters to represent each family member and have it personalized to add each family member’s name. Some ornaments and decorations may represent humorous moments between siblings or funny holiday memories. You may also create a new holiday tradition by challenging each family member to find the most unique ornaments to add to the family's Christmas tree each year.
Board games help create funny moments with family members. Purchase a board game such as Apples to Apples, Twister, or Jenga that will allow families to have fun with one another. Write out family memories on a set of index cards to turn into a fun game of family charades, where family members act out the moments and other try to guess what they are. Some websites allow you to personalize popular board games, such as Monopoly, to represent significant family moments and places.
Puzzles are a gift that a family can enjoy together. Look for puzzles with 500 or more pieces that also contain humorous images. Puzzles with unique shapes may also be challenging and provide a humorous gift. For a more creative puzzle gift, turn a family photograph into a puzzle. Even if the puzzle is not humorous, it may turn into a funny gift as family members struggle to complete the puzzle together.
