It can be hard to find the right gift for a friend or family member. If you aren't sure what they want or need, going for a humorous gift can be a good bet. If you need to shop for a lefty, there are lots of fun gifts out there. Here are just a few joke gift ideas you might want to consider for that particular lefty friend.
One great gift to give your family member is a mug. But this shouldn't be any ordinary mug. It could have something like a funny saying or picture on it. Perhaps something that describes the person you are giving it to or just a joke that they would find especially funny. You can find mugs like this from companies like Mongofun!
Lots of left-handed people wear their watch on their left wrist. The backwards clock takes it a step further: the hands move counter-clockwise. The numbers on the clock are also mirrored so you can actually tell time with this clock. There are all sorts of backwards clocks out there: large ones you can hang on the wall, desk clocks, wristwatches, etc.
It's a fun gift since people glancing at the clock may do a double-take. There's a lot of right-handed bias in equipment design, so the backwards design is a fun way to mock typical design elements and celebrate left-handedness.
A Needlepoint with a Cheeky Quote
Needlepoint hangings often have uplifting proverbs, so it can be funny and jarring to have a silly quote paired this quaint craft. For example, since the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body, you could get a needlepoint that says something like, "I may be left-handed, but I'm always right!"
Parody or Joke Book on Left-handedness
An illustrated book geared towards left-handed people can be a fun item to display on a coffee table. A book you may want to look at is The Natural Superiority of the Left-Hander by James Tertius de Kay. This book is a hilarious take on the history of left-handedness and the issues lefties face in a predominantly right-handed world. Not only are these kinds of books funny, they have interesting factoids and celebrate the uniqueness of the person you're getting the gift for.
There are a lot of great and funny gifts out there you could get your lefty friend. Just make sure you get something that will make them laugh and that they will appreciate coming from you.Share
