Capsules for everything

Take a small glass jar with mints in it. Add a tag explaining what the mints are suppose to be. For example -

Anti aging pills - Take one a day, and turn time around. Or have them all in one go, for an emergency case like you.

Smart pills - Whenever you want to say something dumb, take one and chew on it till the feeling goes away.

Exercise at home

All you need is a block of wood and paper to print out the instructions. The instructions should go something like this. Place the block of wood on the floor, walk around it twice. Now take a rest, because you walked around the block twice.

Bug Killer

You need two small blocks of wood. Write in permanent black marker the first block as "A" and the other "B". Give instructions saying, place the bug on top of block "A" and smash with block "B".

For all those on a diet

Buy a bottle of regular drinking water and stick a label on it saying "diet water" and give it as a gift- especially to all those on a diet.

Grass head

This is a very famous gag gift, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Take a nylon stocking cut it to fit a drinking tea cup, now add about 2 spoons of grass seeds and cover with some garden soil. The entire head should be about the size of a tennis ball. Tightly knot the rest of the stocking and dip the head with water keeping it moist everyday. In about a week you will see the grass growing out of the stocking. You can out this in a small paper cup and decorate.
