What's the best occasion to give someone a novelty gift?

Practical jokes, funny clothing, and gifts that are tongue-in-cheek can be well received by anyone on any occasion. Novelty Christmas gifts can be great for family and friends who have a sense of humour and can be a great way to get some giggles on Christmas morning. Provided the recipient has a sense of humour, gag gifts can work well for birthdays, secret santa, Christmas, leaving presents and most other occasions really.
What sort of joke gift works best?
Depending on who you are buying for, different types of joke gifts may be more fitting. For middle-aged guys, gifts which poke fun at their age can give them a laugh. Students may appreciate a fun pair of socks or joke food gifts. Or if you have a friend that enjoys hanging out and socialising then a game that is fun to play or a drinking gift might be more appropriate.
Why do we give joke gifts?
Novelty presents that make people laugh are a great alternative to the traditional selection of birthday presents. They can bring some wacky fun and merriment to the birthday proceedings and can make a super present for people who have everything. If you are really stuck for a gift idea a joke gift can take the pressure off finding the perfect present. They can give someone a laugh and kindly poke a bit of lighthearted fun at the recipient. Joke gifts are a way to bring people closer together with a shared experience of good hearted laughter and gentle leg-pulling.
