We’re all on edge with anticipation of the jokes and pranks that come with April Fool’s Day. Every day was April Fool’s Day when I was growing up. With two older brothers, I was always waiting for the next wedgie, dead leg or something gross hidden in my food. But, on April 1st the level of jokes and pranks got taken to a whole other level. They took it so seriously that I set rules for myself to play it safe on this special day of days.

Whatever prank or joke you decide to play on somebody this year, please keep it funny and don’t make anyone cry. Here are a few April fool inspired gag gifts that I plan on giving to my friends and family this year.

Best Friend: Her mother dream is for her to marry a Jewish Dentist so I bought her Nice Jewish Guys 2012 Calendar

Brother: 30th Birthday coming up sending out personal birthday invitations with a very embarrassing picture of him at the age of 12 with braces doing his famous dumb Reggie face.

Dad: We think he loves his grandchildren more than us, so to remind him that he has five kids we are creating a custom tee of all our embarrassing school pictures and the text will read my top 5.

Happy April Fool’s Day!
