If you’re on good terms with your ex this Christmas, where’s the harm in giving him a little gift?
Christmas is a great time to try something new or hand out the olive branch with a thoughtful gesture of goodwill.
The best bit is … you can have a playful dig at the same time. Especially if you give him something from my list of hilarious gifts for your ex!
Beware: Some of the present ideas I have suggested are not suitable for kids, but others will make them laugh (who wouldn’t laugh at a pooping puppy calendar?). Make sure you get your timing right for when the gift is opened in case prying eyes are in the vicinity.
If you want to buy your ex something a little more toned down, see this list of Christmas gifts for men for under $50.

Final words about Christmas gifts to buy your ex
In the spirit of yuletide merriment and ex-tended goodwill, why not spread some laughter this Christmas with a humorous gift for your ex?
As the saying goes, 'Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to achieve that than by sharing a chuckle or two?
From the knitted beer coolers that look like they were handcrafted by Great Great Grandma Lizzy to the pooping dog calendar that'll have them howling all year long, these gifts are bound to ignite a few hearty laughs.
And for those exes with a penchant for cynicism, why not gift them a "Blah Blah Button" to remind them that life's too short for endless moans?
Of course, there are some risqué options in the mix, like the "C*nt Mug," but hey, humour has its edgy side too. Just ensure you pick the right moment for gift-giving, avoiding any awkward encounters with innocent bystanders.
So, if you're feeling a little mischievous this holiday season, don't hesitate to embrace the Christmas spirit and indulge in some ex-traordinary gift-giving.
Who said breaking up couldn't be a laughing matter?
Happy holidays, and may your Christmas be filled with laughter and joy!
