15 Best Funny Gag Gifts for April Fools’ Day and Beyond

“April fools!” You’re about to hear that a lot as the silly holiday is quickly approaching. Drew and Jonathan are pretty much the kings of pranks, whether that’s sending in a group of adorable kids to finger paint on the walls or planting confetti bombs during Brother Vs. Brother. (There are so many more, but we’d be here all day if we listed them out!) So it’s only natural we celebrate the official jokester holiday with the best funny gag gifts out there.

These gag gift ideas are sure to get a rise out of the lucky (or maybe unlucky) recipient. There’s a mix of the classics, like whoopee cushions and fake lotto tickets, and a few tricks you might not have seen before, like boxes advertising fake products. (Pet serving vest, anyone?) You can even wrap up literally nothing. Basically, it’s a treasure trove of funny presents you can enjoy for April Fools’ Day, birthdays, and beyond. But you’ve been warned—we can’t protect you from any retaliation that comes your way!

Put a little of this pickle cotton candy into another container and tell them it’s apple flavored. The expression on their face when they have a bite will be priceless. Or just serve it in the original packaging just to see what they think out the gate.
