10 quick and easy gag Christmas gifts

1. To the Naughty
You've not been nice,
So I'll give you the scoop.
All you'll get
is SNOWMAN POOP.
Print the poem on your computer along with a picture of a snowman. Cut it out and glue it to colored paper. Tie the card to a Zip lock bag of mini-marshmallows.
You can also do it with some "Whoppers" candy for reindeer poop.

2. More naughty
Santa's looked at his list,

Even checked it twice,
And he found out,
That you ain't been nice.
Since coal's so expensive,
Here's the scoop,
Santa's filling your stocking,
With snowman poop.

Put a cupful of mini marshmallows in the center of plastic wrap, pull it up, and tie it with curling ribbon. Tape it to a new "kitty litter scoop". Then attach the card with a snowman on it to the handle.

You could do the same thing using chocolate covered raisins, and calling it reindeer poop!

3. Take a whisk and fill it with Hersey Kisses and wrap in plastic.

Make a holiday gift tag that says "we WISK you a Merry Christmas".

4.  BELLY BUTTON DUSTER

Take a sparkly pipe cleaner, cut in half, glue a cotton ball on one end and a small bunch of flowers with bow on the other end. Place in a small plastic bag, and staple a piece of paper on it that says -

Attach this poem
If your belly has lost it's luster,

Try our belly button duster!
Don't mean to be blunt,
but take a hint. . .
This little brush is
for belly button lint!
If you have belly button lint,
Please keep it to a hush,
But do take this little hint. . .
A belly button brush!
For those with everything
and even worth a mint. . .
Here's a belly button brush
for all that fuzzy lint!

5. SPECIAL GIFT:

Take a 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 block of wood and wrap it with wrapping paper.
After you glue saying to front, put a bow on it.
This is a very special gift
That you can never see
The reason it's so special is
It's just for you from me.
Whenever you are lonely
Or ever feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift
And know I think of you.
You never can unwrap it.
Please leave the ribbon tied.
Just hold the box close to heart,
It's filled with love inside.

6. FRIENDSHIP, CUP OF TEA CARD:

On the front of the card is a picture of a really fancy tea cup, above it says:
FRIENDSHIP BEGINS WITH A CUP OF KINDNESS.
Inside it says: Please take the time to share a cup of CHRISTMAS TEA with someone you love.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Also inside the card put two tea bags
7. POWERBAND:

Take a piece of leather rope and tie one end, put the beads on the rope in the order they are listed and then tie the other end.
Put the band and the saying in a baggie.

BLACK is our sin before we are saved.
RED is the blood of CHRIST shed for us on the cross.
WHITE we are cleansed when we are saved.
BLUE is baptism.
GREEN we are growing in CHRIST.
YELLOW/GOLD is our riches in HEAVEN.


8. CHRISTMAS DUST:

Take a baggie and put oats and glitter in it.
Staple saying to baggie.
Sprinkle your lawn with CHRISTMAS DUST this CHRISTMAS EVE and wait-
The glitter will sparkle. Santa will see your house when it is late.
The sparkle is magic on CHRISTMAS EVE when seen by Santa's eyes,
The smell of oats will guide the reindeer down from the highest skies.
 
9. PRAYER ROCK:

Take a rock and wrap it up with material,tie material closed with a ribbon.
You can either put saying and rock in a baggie or you can just tie the saying on the ribbon.

I'm your little prayer rock,
and this is what I'll do.
Just put me on your pillow,
till the day is through.
Then turn back the covers,
and climb into your bed,
And "whack" your little prayer rock,
will hit you on the head.
Then you will remember,
as the day is through.
To kneel and say your prayers,
as you wanted to.
Then when you are finished,
just dump me on the floor.
I'll stay there through the night,
to give you help once more.
When you get up the next morning,
"clunk" I'll stub your toe.
So you won't forget your morning prayers,
again before you go.
Put me back upon your pillow,
after your bed is made.
This clever little prayer rock,
will continue in your aid.
Because your HEAVENLY FATHER,
cares and loves you so.
He wants you to remember,
to talk to HIM, you know.
(DON'T UNWRAP ME)

10. Christmas cookies for the neighbors.

Bake some cookies, or bar cookies, you can even mix in some store bought ones. From the dollar store purchase new dust pans. Arrange the cookies on the dust pan, wrap in colored cellophane, and tie on a bow, with this poem on a tag:

I was baking some cookies
When they dropped on the floor
So I scooped them right up
And rushed them to your door.
