20 Funny Gifts For Brothers That Will Have Everyone Laughing Around The Tree
They may seem tough to shop for, but finding funny gifts for brothers is actually pretty easy. Brothers, be they older or younger, are often the source of a ton of childhood humor and mischief, whether you're laughing at them or with them. Maybe they hosted a ninja school in your backyard, and charged the neighbor kids tuition (enterprising!), or wore lizards as earrings (super gross!). Once, my little brother, ever the comedian, was instructed by our mom to return from the buffet with "something green" on his plate. He returned to the table with a pile of green gummy bears and jelly beans and a smirk. This holiday season, repay the favor with hilarious presents that will have everyone laughing around the Christmas tree and right into 2016.
Depending on your bro's sense of humor, he might appreciate an old-fashioned gag gift, a hilarious book or movie, or even an off-the-wall gift that makes one's eyebrows move in opposite directions — those directions being up and down, as your eyebrows moving toward your ears would be weird. If you can move your eyebrows to the left and right, hit me up on Twitter, because I don't believe you, and I want proof. I've got everything you can imagine in this gift guide from books to gadgets and, naturally, a healthy dose of '90s nostalgia.
So let's get to the lolz.

Caution: only gift this to your brother if you do not live with him. You do not want to find a fake roach or a lingering fart smell in your bed. That's just not at all chill, but it's A-OK if he takes his boyish mischief out on his roommates.
This amazing film from Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords is an absolutely hilarious mockumentary chronicling the lives of regular ol' vampires living in New Zealand. Dating, friendship, and the problems that emerge from not aging for several centuries are explored, and you won't stop laughing for the entire movie.
13. Das Boot
If your bro is into beer, this slightly smaller replica of the giant German beer drinking tradition will definitely make him laugh. This one holds a liter of beer (rather than two or four liters), so it's a manageable quantity for one person, if he puts his mind to it.
14. Marauder's Cup

18. 3D Printer Pen
Get ready for Instagram photos of some weird and hilarious stuff drawn in three-dimensional plastic squiggles.
3D Printing Pen, $20, Think Geek
This is both "haha" funny and funny in the way that you laugh when you're horrified. These lollipops have actual crickets inside, and I double-dog dare your brother to eat one. Get a box in assorted flavors so you guys can try them all (... ew ew ew)!
This game is already a classic, but if your brother happens to still not have his own set of these wonderfully inappropriate cards, it's your sisterly duty to get this for him. I don't make the rules, y'all, I just play by them.
