9. Hilarious Hand Sanitizer

This next gift is hilarious and it is another one of our favorites! Here we have hand sanitizer. This sounds like a practical and not funny gift. That is until you read the label. The label reads “Maybe you touched your genitals, hand sanitizer”. This is so funny because two people are shaking hands and it has crossed all our minds of how clean someones hands actually are. A gift like this is perfect for white elephant at work or if you know someone in the group who is a bit of a germaphobe.
