Who says you can't buy fun gifts for that special someone? Sometimes it can be refreshing to be on the receiving end of a gift that is both thoughtful and whimsical. If you are wracking your brain trying to come up with the ideal gift for your wife's birthday or your parent's anniversary, why not come up with something that will put a smile on their faces? Most of us could use a good laugh now and again, and the gift of laughter is invaluable.

Of course, there is a distinct difference between gag gifts which are purely silly in nature, and fun gifts which are light-hearted yet useful. While gag gifts often get a one-time laugh, fun gifts can also be useful. For example, the Smart Women line of gifts features napkins, erasers, notepads and other everyday items with clever slogans. A mug with the phrase, "Smart Women Thirst for Knowledge" is sure to bring a smile.

Choosing Appropriate Fun Gifts

A fun gift should pertain to the personality of your recipient. In other words, you could go out and buy your wife a necklace for her birthday, which she may like and appreciate; however, she may not be blown away by the gesture. A fun gift will take into consideration her personality and her passions, and it will cater to both. For instance, you may want to indulge your wife with a soft, cozy robe. Combined with aromatherapy candles and a soothing CD, this gift can allow your wife to relax and enjoy a fun spa-like experience.

Gifts should be fun, as they are a way of expressing your love and appreciation for the special people in your life. Fun pajamas are great to give for many occasions, and are appropriate for both men and women. Some of the cutest pajamas come from Nick and Nora, though the Cat's Pajamas brand is also popular. Pajamas featuring sushi, playing card, or chocolate are fun, yet practical.
