Rule of Thumb: The best gag gifts are ones that someone might actually use.
Universal Gag Gift: Boxer shorts
Alternate Use: J. Crew's Styling with Boxer Shorts: also check out J. Crew's styling of boxers in their Holiday 2011 catalog. (SP '11, See Below)

For the Funny Bone: Justin Bieber singing toothbrushes
It's funny and punny: It sings U Smile. OMG.
For those with a green thumb: A Charlie Brown Christmas Tree
DIY: Plant a miserable looking weed in a clean flower pot and hang a single Christmas ornament. Pathetic, yet nostalgic.
The unlucky reciever: Wrap up a box of "air."
But, only if you're desperate.
