Gag Gifts for Short People

present image by dinostock from

If you have a friend or family member with a sense of humour who is lacking a little in the height department, you may be considering getting a gag gift for them for an upcoming holiday or birthday. Be careful not to offend anyone with your gifts. If you're unsure of how your friend will react to a joke present, consider giving them your gift in private.

Shoe Lifts

Get your short friend some shoe lifts to bring him a little closer to your size.

Booster Chair

Give your recipient a booster chair as a gag gift. Remind him each time you go out to dinner to bring it with them.

Children's Catalogs

Consider giving your recipient some cash and a few catalogues to children's clothing stores. Include a note stating that you were unsure of your friend's size and you thought he might want to pick out something for themselves.

Gift Basket

Fill a gift basket with travel-sized toiletries with a note that says, "I thought this would be more your size."

Stepping Stool

Consider giving your short acquaintance a stepping stool to make his life easier. Offer some advice on where he can use his new gift---getting into bed, reaching the cabinet, brushing his teeth and looking into the peephole of his front door.

Growth Chart

Give your recipient some hope and purchase a size chart for him to keep on his wall.

Munchkin Outfit

You may get your recipient a munchkin outfit from the "Wizard of Oz." With this gift, you can include a "Wizard of Oz" DVD with this or a giant lollipop since he will now represent the Lollipop guild.

Big Wheel

Give your recipient a tricycle as a gift. Let him know that this is a safer way to travel for someone his size and kindly ask him to discard his bike.


If your recipient has a large breed dog, you can give him a saddle as a gift with a note that says, "Now you can ride ___ to work."
