Sometimes, when you want to make a big impression with a gift, size does matter. “Giant” gifts are eye-catching, fun, make memorable conversation pieces…and oftentimes, bring huge laughs and cheer. The oversized surprises, humor, and playful nature associated with the following items make ideal ‘get-well soon,’ congratulations, happy birthday, graduation, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and I’m sorry gifts.
If you’re a coffee lover, then you may have already come across what has been dubbed as the ‘World’s Largest Coffee Cup’. You can purchase an extremely huge coffee cup for a caffeine fanatic, which holds 20 regular sized cups of coffee. Once the novelty of this gift wears off – they can use the porcelain mug as a planter, office décor, or an interesting centerpiece for a table.
2. Swimline Giant Ring Toss Game
When looking for a gift that will impress the kiddies, a giant, inflatable version of the classic game of ring toss could elevate pool and outdoor fun this summer. This gift is comprised of a target buoy and five giant tossing rings, where people of all ages can enjoy aiming to reach the highest score.

3. Extra Large, Giant TV Remote
Do you have a loved one who is constantly losing their TV remote…always asking where it is? Consider an extra-large, jumbo TV remote that not only delivers a dose of healthy laughter, but is also fully functional. I can personally vouch that this gag gift for TV lovers goes over real well for laughs and ultimate conversation piece. I bought my Dad not one, but two of these (they came in a 2-pack; one black and one white), and the buttons even glowed in the dark. Definitely can’t misplace these TV remotes…
A giant #2 pencil definitely makes a statement when it’s decorating the desk of a teacher; used as a stocking stuffer for kids, or serving as a fun gesture for someone who prefers pencil to pen (or typing). This pencil really works, including the eraser. It measures 14 inches long x 1.2 inches in diameter, and only costs $5.49 at PerpetualKid.com.
Available in Vanilla, Strawberry and Chocolate, you never know when a giant lamp in the shape of an ice cream cone will make a suitable gift for someone.

Gift it to someone with a bar in their home; who entertains in their man cave; or use it to simply amplify a long-running inside joke.
