Fish slides, a toilet mug and Bob Ross ChiaPet.

From White Elephant to Pollyanna, there are many names for the much beloved, fast-paced holiday gift-swap event. Though we may disagree on what the game is called, we all can agree that the ideal gift-exchange present is something relatively cheap and really freaking funny.

Call them tacky, cheesy, cringy or straight-up potty humored, these are not practical, durable presents that you’re glad to own and will last a while. They’re ridiculous, over-the-top items that are meant to make everyone laugh without breaking the bank.

To help you spice up your holiday celebration — and to ensure your funny gift gets there before the big day — we’ve rounded up the best gag gifts you can find on Amazon, all for under $30. Some are so funny, you may buy an extra to keep for yourself.
