Gift basket filled with presents beginning with letter F

How about a letter F themed basket? Tuck in both practical, thoughtful, and tasty gifts:

Gifts for adults that start with F

I really enjoyed locating gifts for adults that start with F. The letter F is a great pick, because there is an abundance of letter F gifts, and good ones, too. These gifts are selected on the basis that they would work for adults, especially at a family gift exchange or office gift exchange.

Fanny pack

Fanny packs are so practical! Although I list funny fanny packs in the section below for funny gifts that start with F, fanny packs have proven over and over their practical worth.

Whether for sports use, hiking, tactical packs, or a fashion statement, there are hundreds of fanny pack design and styles to choose from.

People may make fun of fanny packs, but then they gear up with one they realize that they are insanely practical! I do believe they are coming back in style. Just jump on over to Youtube to see “reveals” of what users stuff in their fanny packs!

Here’s a guy shamelessly sharing what he puts in his fanny pack on Youtube.

To add a bit of trivia on bum bag vs a fanny pack: The difference between a fanny back and a bum bag is that a bum bag is the British term for the same accessory, according to Mahi Leather.

Fidget toys for adults

Don’t assume that fidget toys are only for kids, they make fun, low-budget toys for adults! Here are some popular searches for fidget toys:

According to Very Well Mind, “Fidget toys are small, handheld objects that can be manipulated with the hands. These devices are intended to aid in self-regulation and help people with ADHD improve their ability to focus and better tolerate feelings of boredom, anxiety, and excitement.”

Fidget toys may have been designed for the purpose to keep ADHD hands busy, but it’s great for grandkids and those with anxiety. too! I had a loved with who experienced a stroke, and fidget toys were a tool that we relied on to keep her hands busy.

My favorite? Fidget toys stocking stuffers. If you’re a mom like me, I’m always looking for that cute little novelty item to add to the Christmas stockings – fidget toys are perfect!

Fidget toys are so popular, that companies give them away as promotional items with their custom imprint on for marketing.

Fire pit

Give the gift of warmth with a fire pit. This is a great gift for anyone who loves spending time outdoors, even in the winter months.

Amazon Fire Stick

Not everyone knows what an Amazon Fire Stick is, but most people know it can make your life better!

According to ZDNet, “The Amazon Fire TV Stick allows you to stream your favorite platforms on your TV.” It’s also helpful to know from the folks over at The Home Theatre DIY that “Connecting an Amazon Fire TV stick to a non-smart TV is simple, you just have to make sure your TV has an HDMI port and is 10-years-old or less.” If you don’t have an HDMI port, then you will need an an HDMI to component converter or an HDMI to composite converter.

As TVs slowly get converted to smart TVs, the need for converters will become less. Always check the requirements on your Amazon Fire product, as specs can change.

Flip-it bottle emptying kit

This is a beautiful example of the right tool for the right job. In my house, it’s a regular fight to balance the liquid soap in a precairous position to the the last drop. It fails 8 out of 10 times. I would literally squeal with delight if I received this gift!

Folding table

Just like fanny packs, folding tables are a super-practical gift. Where I’m from, a card table and set of chairs make for a practical wedding gift. I find that small, 4 ft portable folding tables are ideal to setup for a quick project, or doing taxes.

There always seems to be a void where a folding table is needed – it really is a basic household tool.

Freeze Dried Candy

Freeze dried candy is the new craze that puts regular candy into a freeze dryer. This novelty food is surprisingly expensive, but popular none the less. It’s really the freeze dried Skittles that catapulted freeze dried candy into candy stardom.

Here are other popular freeze dried sweets. Disclaimer: often the link goes to an Amazon off-brand of the product. I cannot say for sure if the manufacturer starts with the name brand products, freeze-dries it, and then packages it under a similar name.

Candy lovers adore the novelty of freeze dried treats. Consider giving a freeze dried candy variety pack for your giftee!

Could there be benefits to freeze-dried candy? Candy Jan has been able to identify some of them:

  • Deliciously puffy
  • Intensified flavor
  • Never goes stale
  • Better for teeth
  • Lightweigh
  • Great for tasting parties
  • It’s a novelty

In case you were wondering, it isn’t necessary to rehydrate the food. I found it interesting that Candy Jan also mentioned that the freeze-dried food is recession proof and lasts forever. That isn’t necessarily true.

Freeze dried food can last up to 20 years of properly sealed in oxygen containers. My family had a surprise when we decided to pop open a few of our freeze dried cans that hit the 20 year mark… some of them didn’t make it 🙁

Turns out that some of them were not properly sealed, and we opened up some moldy freeze-dried strawberries – but some cans were still in perfect condition. I don’t think longevity is a big concern, I mean, come on, it’s candy!

Funko Pops

Toys for a Pound explains that “Funko Pops” are “small figurines renowned for their exaggerated features, including giant bobbleheads and oversized eyes. They depict popular characters from a wide range of leading franchises and genres, including DC Comics, Marvel, and Disney, alongside pop culture idols in various styles, poses and outfits.”

Funko Pops appeal to every age and interest and are collectible.

Even the Funko pets have a tie to popular culture. Below is picture Queen Elizabeth II with her Corgey dog; to the right is Professor McGonagall as a cat.

Funny gifts that start with F

As I said, letter F gifts are easy to work with, especially if your best word choice is “funny.” Check out these funny gifts that start with F for a fun family time!

Fly fans for tables

What?!? Yes, its a fly fan for the table. Someone had a Eureka moment and decides how wonderful it would be use fly fans for food on picnic tables to keep flies away. They are also referred to as fly repellant or bug repellant fans.

You can even get the fly fans shaped like the Eifle Tower! How cute is that! The fly fans come in different styles, and different models are battery or usb powered. If you have a loved one who can’t stand flies, get them a fan to keep flies away.

Most of the fly fans are off brands, but they’re pretty basic machines, getting good reviews on Amazon.


Frownies are a product for all the parts of the face that have wrinkle issues:

Funny fanny pack

Funny + fanny pack = winner! Get your giggle on with a fat belly fanny pack The fat man belly fanny pack is very popular on Amazon, probably to pair with a costume.

Now, I know what your next question is going to be: what are funny things you can put in a fanny pack (yep, I saw that coming).

Funny fridge magnets

Who doesn’t need humour on a daily basis? Choose from classic memes to irreverent pokes at your friends, these refrigerator magnets say it all.

Funny flags

FYI, funny flags are very popular for teen bedrooms and college dorms. Don’t let that stop you from giving a funny gift that starts with F at your alphabet gift exchange. Flags are perfect to cover a big expanse of wall, and even easier to quickly take down and fold up.

You can have a lot of fun wrapping it up, too, because it folds down pretty small.

Funny frog decor

Full disclosure – I love frogs! Your giftee doesn’t necessarily have to love frogs, they’re funny just like pigs are. I am obsessed with “Springer the Treefrog” character with red eyes by artist Julon Wrench. I’m not even sure if Julon Wrench is a real name, but his 3d digital art has been his claim to fame for French frog clipart. Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to license his clipart. I’m guessing that he sold rights to manufacturers to create frog statuary.

Understand that their is an ongoing cost to using a Fitbit. According to CNET, the premium subscription is going to cost money to use all the features. However, according to iMore, you can still use your Fitbit for free, but the premium version will give deeper insights into your health.
