Crazy Birthday Present Ideas
Crazy gifts are sure to keep you laughing. (laughing couple image by Dmitri MIkitenko from

Crazy birthday presents are out-of-the-ordinary gifts that make a statement. Usually humorous and slightly wild, some crazy gifts are so silly that a child would enjoy playing with them. Consider your friend's or family member's personality and then get creative--a funny bobble head picture of the birthday boy or girl, an outrageous pair of shoes, or a wacky invention only a true friend could love.

Rubber Screaming Chicken

Buy your friend or family member a rubber screaming chicken. This type of crazy gift is best suited for the ultimate comedian.The chicken is made out of rubber and screams when you squeeze the abdomen. Buyer beware: This chicken sounds more like a screaming woman than an actual chicken. Include a personal note about how to use the rubber chicken. For instance, you can tell the recipient to hide the chicken under their spouse's pillow or to re-gift it to another family member. Look for a screaming chicken online or at novelty shops.

Kilt Beach Towel

The kilt beach towel is a crazy present for the avid beach or pool-goer, or a friend who enjoys dressing up and turning heads. The towel looks just like an old fashioned Scottish kilt when it's wrapped around your waist. People might even think it's a real kilt from a distance. Available in a variety of plaids at your local novelty store or online, this unusual gift is sure to get a chuckle from even your most serious family member.

Talking Fish Head

For an over-the-top and "incredibly cheesy gag gift," Heidi Schuessler at the New York Times recommends the "Big Mouth Billy Bass" talking fish head. Perfect for the hunter or outdoors man in your life, the talking fish is mounted on a plaque, talks and sings as you walk by, and can be hung on the wall. From a distance the fish looks like a real hunter's fish that's on display, but it will surprise friends who walk by as it begins to talk or sing. "The Big Mouth Billy Bass" can be found in some sporting goods shops, novelty stores and online.

Beer Ping Pong Table

Buy a beer ping pong table for the guy who loves sports and beer. The beer inspired ping pong table works well for a friend who has extra space in a basement or beside a pool in his back yard. This crazy gift is decked out with various beer logos and is even available in pink for the outrageous woman in your life. The table is easy to set up and comes with a set of ping pong paddles and balls. Look for a beer ping pong table at your local sporting goods shops or online.

Elvis Costume

Elvis costumes are both funny and cool. Costumes come complete with glasses, a wig and a full disco style jumpsuit or trousers and a shirt. Some kits may include other Elvis-themed accessories. Also consider buying a microphone to go along with the costume so your friend can really ham it up. This gift is suited for a friend who loves the limelight or likes to make people laugh. Elvis costumes are found in novelty shops, online and costume boutiques.
