If getting a sentimental present for your brother this holiday season just doesn’t make sense, I feel you. Personally, I feel like it doesn’t seem right to get my brother a gift that doesn’t have some kind of hidden motive or inside joke attached to it. If you’re in the same boat, then finding a funny gift idea for your brother is essential.
But where does one even start? Honestly, it depends on the types of jokes you have together. First, take note of what inside jokes you pass along throughout your week, and find something that makes sense for your relationship. Or, find something completely unexpected. For example, my little brother loves to work out all the time. So, finding some kind of gift that accentuates that hobby of his seems to make the most sense. Take note of your brother’s hobbies, his habits, and his relationships with others in order to find him a supremely hilarious gift.
Basically, this is the perfect time to pull out all the stops for your brother. Make this a holiday to remember, one that will probably be spent creating jokes, maybe even going into 2017. If you’re still stuck finding a gift, don’t worry, I snagged a few to help you out:
This is perfect if you keep asking your brother what he wants for Christmas only to get the response, “nothing.” Cool, just get for him, already.
