In the life of any person with a brother, there are three great challenges: finding someone to referee your childhood battles over whose turn it is on the computer, calling "dibs" on your leftovers so they don't mysteriously ~disappear~, and shopping for aforementioned brother. If the last of the three is troubling you as of late and you need a cool gift idea for your sibling, allow me to introduce you to some funny 2017 gifts for your brother that he will l.o.v.e.
Shopping for brothers is kind of like the Bermuda Triangle: nobody really gets it. Most are practical creatures; if they need something, they buy it. That means when it comes time to give them a gift, you're out of ideas. Your brother already has that fancy nose hair trimmer you saw online. He already bought that expensive leather briefcase with a hidden pocket for a flask. He doesn't need anything. So, where does that leave you?
Well, you have two options: you can either buy him something super practical that he uses all the time, like hand sanitizer and paper towel (...zzz...), or you can buy him something silly to make him laugh. That leaves you with these 17 gifts that are fun, funny, and also affordable, because let's face it — most of what you buy your brother ends up in the back of his closet anyway.
3Bacon Air Freshener
You tried getting your bro hooked on the lavender and warm vanilla potpourri you use in your own home, but alas, he resisted. Get him the next best air freshener money can buy. The scent of grease and frying swine will permeate his entire abode and bring a happy tear to his eye.
Does your brother spend a good deal of time on the can? While most of us like to scroll through Instagram while we relieve ourselves, who says you can't improve your swing while you're in there? Help him kill two birds with one stone — going poo while staying physically fit with the most boring sport known to mankind. FORE!
8The Grill Sergeant Ultimate BBQ Apron
No one works a grill like your brother, and he'll truly appreciate this apron that holds everything but the kitchen sink. This is the Swiss army knife of BBQ aprons, with space for six drinks or bottles, a bottle opener, jar pockets for your spices, extra large tool pockets, and more.
Your brother and his receding hairline will be so happy with this blow-up toupee. Who needs expensive wigs and hair transplants when you can get a new head of hair for less than $10? That's a bargain. You're, like, the best sister ever.
