Sometimes, you want a special gift for a noteworthy occasion. But in other situations, you simply want to put a smile on someone’s face.
If you find yourself in the latter situation, check out some of the following “useless” gift options from Amazon. Buying a gag gift can be a great way to put your tax refund to use when you simply want to brighten someone’s day.
If you’re looking for something “useless,” why not go with an item that uses that very moniker?
Flip the switch and the Useless Box Leave Me Alone Machine will flip it right back before closing shut again. And again. And again.
The box is available in two different wood finishes.
We’ve all been there: You are carrying around slices of pizza and just wish you could store them somewhere to free up your hands.
Enter your gift, the Portable Pizza Pouch. It allows the recipient to hang pizza slides around their neck the next time they need to free their hands.
Do you know a co-worker who earns your sympathy for heroically dealing with various idiots throughout the day? It might be time to reward them.
Check out this candle with the slogan “Reward for Dealing with Idiots All Day.” It features soy wax and can give your co-worker a nice zen moment before they have to deal with idiots again.
Looking for the perfect useless gift that will annoy your friends and family all day? Bring on The Screaming Goat.
The goat is a 3-inch toy that will bleat whenever you give it a gentle press. It comes with its own book with useless facts about this type of goat.
Those who love pickles might enjoy the lovely sounds of their very own yodeling pickle.
Just press the button on the Yodeling Pickle for hours of useless enjoyment. Each time your recipient picks up their Yodeling Pickle, they will think of you.
