Funny gifts that start with P for adults

First of all, one of the rules for an alphabet gift exchange – there are no rules! I honestly would just go for the most in-your-face gag gift just to spite the whole idea of this type of gift exchange.

This is just as much about making yourself laugh as your friends laugh. Don’t leave any stone unturned in your search for a gag gift that starts with the letter P. Of course, this could blow up in your face when you think that something is funny and your friends and family don’t.

Personalized parking sign

If your friend has a sense of humor and a car, consider getting them a personalized parking sign. You can customize it with their name and a funny message, like “Reserved for the World’s Best Driver.”

Possum gifts

Technically, that is O-possum, but we will count it as gifts starting with the letter P. Not sure how you feel about possums. I have a bad memory of opening up a chicken coop in the middle of the night and one was peering out.

I think like pigs, possums are just one of those funny animals that are… funny If you agree, entertain yourself checking out some possum gifts. Special highlight: the Cream Possum in Coon Fat Gravy Garnished with Sweet Potatoes (yum!).

Prank pack

If you want to give your friend a good laugh before they even open their gift, consider getting them a Prank Pack. These boxes are designed to look like real products, but when your friend opens them, they’ll find a ridiculous item inside.

The Prank Pack “Pet Butler” is a good option for animal lovers.

Gifts that start with P for him

If you are looking for a gift that starts with the letter P for the special man in your life, there are many great options to choose from. Whether you are shopping for a birthday, anniversary, or just want to show your appreciation, here are some ideas to consider:

Pocket knife

A pocket knife is a practical gift that he can use for a variety of tasks. Look for one with multiple blades and a sturdy handle for durability. I get it, not everyone is into pocket knives.

I have a friend that specializes in making beautiful handles for knives. He has even made some for movie sets. Wished he had a website so I could promote him!

The point is that you can elevate the gift by buying a limited edition knife, or a hand-crafted handle with knife.
