People Share 112 Gifts They Got That Made Them Laugh (New Pics)

Gift giving is such an important part of the holiday season (thanks, capitalist society!) that it’s basically a blessing and a curse at the same time. As much joy as it was supposed to give, it often stresses us out to the point of a festive burnout. And instead of recharging our batteries, we fail the endurance test, numbing all this anxiety with one too many Cosmos.

Or, you just don’t take it seriously. In fact, there are people who refuse to play the safe card when giving gifts altogether as they take the absurdity to a whole new level. The result is some of the most hilarious Christmas gifts you’ve seen and some are so ingenious, it’s plain awesome. This time, Bored Panda combined a list of the things Santas-turned-trolls brought home this Christmas, so scroll down for your ultimate amusement.

Don’t forget to check out our previous posts with the funniest gifts here, here, and here. And if I were you, I’d get my notes ready⁠—you never know when you’re gonna need a new Christmas gift idea. Oh, in fact, you do⁠—in 363 days.

After being deprived of Christmas last year, with many people spending the holidays in their small social bubbles without their closest family members due to the worldwide pandemic, this year was a catch-up we were all looking forward to. The sheer joy of being able to hug your loved ones you haven’t seen for a long time is something that made it worth the wait.

Morgan Cue, the representative at Moonpig, shared a couple of insights with Bored Panda about how people celebrated Christmas this year. After the pandemic put our Christmas spirit to the test, it became clear that nothing can ruin the long traditions of how we celebrate it. “Many individuals are now determined to celebrate the festive season and make up for lost time,” Morgan said.

Moonpig has recently done an illuminating study into what Christmas traditions are the most popular in 2021. The data collected in this study was based on a survey on Christmas preparation time. The survey took place in October 2021 and questioned 1,007 UK adults. “Whether your favorite Christmas film is Elf, Home Alone or the Grinch, Christmas movies have found their place as a Christmas tradition, with 17% of respondents looking forward to grabbing the popcorn and getting cosy on the sofa this year,” Morgan said.

Meanwhile, the most prevalent festive traditions are somewhat expected⁠—spending time with family (28%) and eating Christmas dinner (25%). However, people seem to have become less excited with age-old traditions like putting a pie out for Father Christmas (4%) and kissing under the mistletoe (2%).

#69 My Parents Are Trolls

Last gift I got from them. Two spray bottles with money in them. Each bill folded into a football (American). 


My dad said he looked at multiple types of bottles so he could get the bulls in but they would be a challenge to get out. I was instructed I couldn’t smash the bottles. So I didn’t. Tedious but not difficult. Only needed tweezers a couple of times.


$100 total. Love my parents. We enjoy trolling one another when we can, but especially at Christmas.
