Practical gag gifts that can be handy in day-to-day life

Gag GiftsGag gifts can be practical in theme and content as well. For example, why not think of a Screaming and Coughing Ashtray as a gift? This ashtray will try to help a smoker remind of the ill-effects of smoking by making a screaming and coughing!

This ashtray is so designed that it looks like a real pair of lungs. As the smoker puts the cigarette onto the ashtray it will activate a disturbing coughing and screaming sound! Isn’t it a great gag gift for someone ‘pack-a-day smoker’ who you know, and are keen on helping the person give up the habit?

Here is another practically workable gag gift! Does one of your short-tempered friends need help getting rid of those phone calls from irritant callers? Well, your gag gift will just be the perfect solution for them. It will act a shield against a pesky telemarketer.

You can gift your friend or colleague a unique ‘Pocket-Get off the Phone Excuse Machine’. This tiny device can really be handy. It will give out different quirky sounds that will help the person out of the tightest spot, and get them off the phone ‘fast’. Thanks to your gift, freedom is simply ‘the press of a button’ away!

A Seat Saver will be an ultimate gag gift with some serious practical application. Have you ever gone to a packed hall where you managed to grab the perfect seat only to surrender it to some a-hole? You reach there early; grab the front row seat and then nature calls. It’s an awkward situation, but you cannot leave, so what to do? There are people hovering around, awaiting to grab your place once you get up. You must have experienced this situation.

What if your gag gift can help one of your dear friends overcome the problem? A seat saver is a perfect practical gag gift! These fake spills come in form of a Ketchup Packet Spill or an ice cream cone spill that look like the real thing! Just place it on your coveted seat and it’ll still be empty when you come back! It can also be a great prank! Put the spills on some important documents of your colleagues or on a friends’ costly carpet and watch them panic!

Golf equipment and accessories make a great gift




Any of your professional or personal friends attempting a swing at the golf course cannot do without the following equipment and accessories. You can pick one or more in keeping with your budget.

The driver: This is the most electrifying club in the golf kit, not only since it hits the ball further than the other clubs, but also since watching the golf ball in flight gives a more gratifying feeling than most other acts and aspects in this particular sport. Properly fitted golf drivers play a major role in improving one’s game.

The golf clubs or irons: They are traditionally thought to be the unrecognized or unsung heroes in a golfer’s kit. They are the scoring clubs and also the most used clubs in any golf arsenal. They usually come in sets of up to 13 clubs with varied loft angles for different distances as well as shots. When gifting the golf clubs or irons, one key thing to keep in mind – no matter what style you select – is that all three different types should ideally be custom fitted to the person’s golf swing for producing optimum results.

The Golf wedges: They are a very crucial part of the game of golf. It can have dramatic results in the player’s score. During a round of golf, one plays 70 per cent of the shots from 120 yards (or closer) to the pin! In your quest to get the best golf wedge as a gift, it’s important to find out how a wedge shot really works. Also, the make up of the golf club wedge is as vital as its versatility.

Putters: For golfers of all abilities and ages putters remain the most creative and personal piece of equipment in their kits. Since there is no exact way to ‘putt’ the ball in the ‘hole’, putters nowadays come in all different shapes and sizes. When you are selecting one as a gift, keep a few basics in mind. Try to get one, which will feel comfortable in your hand with respect to good weight and balance. Ideally, the person whom you want to gif t it should make it to the shop at the time of buying it. If you are buying online, there are tools to guide you in this regard. Ensure that is appealing to eyes.

The golf equipment makes a great gift for any occasion.

Surprise your golf loving corporate friends with an unusual golf gift


Not a lot of people think of giving golf apparel as a gift, so it may seem a little uncommon at the outset. There are several good golf apparel choices nowadays available at online and offline stores, which you couldn’t easily find just a few years ago. Have you thought of the possibility of getting a golf shirt or wind shirt from a popular golf location? Won’t that be special? Maybe you can get a nice rain suit. It’s something that golf lovers wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves.

You might not generally consider gifting golf clubs since it might be logical to think that your golfer friend has everything at his/her disposal, but then what about a set of used golf clubs as a back-up? Used golf clubs, meaning, another set of golf clubs? Well! Why not?

Wouldn’t your golfer friends love to possess a second set of clubs very much identical to the one already there? Consider this, provided with a second set of clubs they can leave the original one at the golf club when they happen to visit a different golf course.

If there are some golf clubs, which your close corporate friend doesn’t possess, you can take advantage of a large variety of golf e-tailers to find some great bargains on discount golf clubs. Maybe a special wedge he/she has been eagerly wanting, a new design putter or perhaps a fairway wood for replacing those golf irons they can’t hit, such as the 3 or 4 iron. Or possibly they are eyeing some brand new, quality golf training club or gadget. Here, you have a window of opportunity! If you try out hard, you may manage to pick them for a bargain price you wouldn’t believe.

Surprise your golf loving corporate friends with an unusual golf gift!

Fragrant facts – keep them in mind while gifting perfumes

If you are planning to gift perfume, here are some basic facts to be kept in mind:
Alcohol content in perfumes makes them emanate sweet smells from one’s skin. Without it, only the wearer would know about it.
Find a fragrance that complements skin type and natural aroma of body of the person whom you want to gift it.
The scent should be pleasant enough and subtle enough to enhance the wearer’s personality.
A perfume lasts longer on some individuals than on others owing to differences in our skin (dry or oily) as well as in our PH levels. Try layering your perfume to ensure a longer effect.
Apply perfume low on the body and on your neck so that it gradually rises and won’t be lost quickly. Just a light spray on the hair can last whole day. It can be sprayed on the inside of the elbow, on the wrist, and back of the knees.
The best time to apply perfume is after a shower or bath, when skin pores will be open and can soak up the fragrance.
Keep perfume – gifted or bought – in cool, dry area. Keep it away from direct sunlight since it can unbalance the various ingredients.
An opened perfume bottle should be put in its box, when not in use, to ensure a longer shelf life.
Use non-deodorized soap where perfume is to be applied. Soaps and deodorants can affect how it will smell on your skin!

Certain types of jewelry like costume or pearl jewelry can get discolored owing to perfume alcohols. Some can also lose it outer coating. When wearing perfume with such f jewelry type, spray it away from the jewelry.
You can gift a variety of perfumes for different seasons that go with the person’s body and personality type.
