Gift of laughter

Definition of a gag gift:
A gift that is given strictly for comedic effect expecting laughter in return. 

 After all, a gift of laughter is the best gift of all. Gag gifts are as much fun to give as they are to get. Ironically, they require a little more thought than a traditional gift but gag gifts can generate loads of fun and cost very little. Take this fun and easy gift that I created. I think you can guess what is wrapped up under the tissue paper!

Did you know there is such a thing as gag gift etiquette
1. Make sure the gift won't offend the recipient by hurting their feelings.
2. Know your recipient and their personality.
3. Everyone attending ( if it's a party ) should be comfortable enough to laugh at the gag gift and it's recipient.
4. Gag gifts are very common and expected at birthday parties, especially 40th, 50th, and Over the Hill birthday parties.

To finish off the wrapping, I needed a small tag to attach to the ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Susan's Live in Color paper collection has a sheet of tags in it, so I cut one out and stamped the "smile" sentiment from the Insta-Cute stamp set on it. What could be easier?

Giving the gift of laughter is priceless, so lighten up and go for it!
