Are you supposed to buy April Fools’ Day gifts? No, probably not. But everyone deserves a good, hearty laugh after the past year. I’m very down to make it a custom.

Since this isn’t like, an official or expected thing, the easiest way to do this is to just buy a cheap gag gift from Amazon. That way you can still bring the laughs without stressing over shipping times or your bank account.

Yes, most of these gifts are absolutely ridiculous. But what’s the point of buying a gag gift in a year of undeniable mayhem if you’re not going to go completely unhinged? From little desk toys to prank boxes, there’s something for everyone on your list.

Scroll down below to shop the best gag gifts you can find on Amazon — and maybe keep a few for yourself too.

Yes, these are 100% real and perfect for anyone who still thinks “loving bacon” is a viable identity post-2010s. (FWIW, it absolutely is.)

This is the only desk toy anyone should ever have on their desk.

Everyone hates a midnight bathroom run interrupting blissful sleep, so why not gift this motion-activated night light? It’ll at least make things a little more fun.

Spread joy this holiday season by gifting 12 images of the cutest pooches just hanging out, doing their business at different places around the country. And it’s not all jokes — $1 of every purchase goes to the Maui Humane Society.

5. Prank Gift Box “Shower Margarita Machine”, $8.95

Okay, so it’s not actually a margarita shower machine (wishful thinking for everyone). But if you’re into a classic holiday prank, this empty box is the way to go. Make sure to film their reaction for TikTok, obviously.

6. “I Survived Another Meeting That Should Have Been an Email” Coffee Mug, $17.99

We all think it, say it and feel it deep inside our bones. Whoever doesn’t love this stupid, stupid mug is lying.

7. Uniwit Mini Portable Microphone, $12.99

Karaoke superstars of the world will adore this teeny mic that plugs directly into their phones.

8. University Games Flickin’ Chicken, $17.99

Yup, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Every player just has to throw their rubber chicken and try to match the target. It’s like golf but for people who enjoy fun things. (Sorry, not sorry.)
