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.

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…
