Gag Gifts for April Fool’s Day
Playing pranks on people is apparently not only an ancient custom but also a multi-national pastime. Many countries, including Scotland, England, Italy, France and Belgium, celebrate some version of April Fool’s Day—also called All Fools’ Day—which got its name from the custom of finding an excuse to make someone “play the fool.” With April 1st right around the corner, we thought you’d enjoy seeing a few humorous, yet still classy, gag gift suggestions, all perfect for the funny guy in your life.
For a Bearded Guy
Forget how tall the kids are getting … this growth chart t-shirt ($20) measures how long the wearer’s beard is. Mustaches shouldn’t get all the love, should they?
For the New Dad
Know a new father a bit befuddled by all things baby? The Infant Care Troubleshooting Flowchart ($22) is a magnet set sure to make decision-making easier, or at least a little more humorous.
For the Comic Book Fan
Ka-Pow! If that noise is coming from your kitchen, it’s highly likely there will be a mess to clean up. Protect your super-hero chef’s clothing with a Batman apron ($19.99). (Alas, it does not come with superpowers, a butler, or a Batmobile.)
For Your Sexy Guy
“It’s illegal in nine countries … and made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.” Inspired by the hit Will Ferrell comedy “Anchorman,” Sex Panther Cologne ($39.99) is a bona-fide clean, masculine scent, but it does come in packaging that growls when opened.
