Putting together a few redneck gag gifts gets laughs at any celebration. Use your creative instincts to make some of these inexpensive projects. Many redneck gag gifts can be made with items you have around your house. So gather up those things you don't know what to do with and put them to use. Consider the occasion and the recipient when designing your redneck gag gifts. Make sure they have a good sense of humor and won't take offense to the gift.

Step 1

Create the container for the redneck gag gifts. To create a redneck "briefcase," sew the legs together on a pair of men's briefs (underwear). Attach handles to the waistband. Consider a few useful redneck items for inside the briefcase such as newspaper strips for toilet paper, a nail to serve as a toothpick and two tin cans and a string for a telephone. Add an antenna to a tin can to create a cell phone. Be creative with the items included in the redneck briefcase.

Step 2

Create redneck earrings. Grab two car air fresheners and add earring hooks. Select a scent the recipient enjoys or make several pair of redneck earrings to match different outfit colors. Include a message such as, "Jewelry is a girl's best friend. Only the best for you."

Step 3

Give a useful redneck washer and dryer. Get a large box and place a decorative dishcloth and towel in the box. Wrap the box with festive paper. Attach a note explaining you wanted to spare no expense and purchase something useful. Try something like, "We spared no expense with this gift, bend your knees when you lift. We thought about a sports car or tropical cruise, but decided to give you something you could use. So put down your fork and put your new washer and dryer to work."

Step 4

Provide a redneck flashlight. Place matches in a bag and write flashlight on the outside. Instead of matches, you can also provide a more primitive flashlight by including two stones or sticks the redneck can strike or rub together to create fire and light.

Step 5

Surprise someone with the redneck boob job. Get two clear balloons and a drinking straw. Attach a message explaining the directions. Put balloons into bra pockets. Using the straw, blow to desired size and tie to prevent air loss or shifting. Consider adding a caution warning for sharp objects!

Step 6

Fashion redneck slippers. Lay two Maxi Pads flat. Wrap two more Maxi Pads over the toe area and tape together. Add decorations such as flowers, beads and other small trinkets. Fasten a note to the Maxi Pad slippers to say, "Keeps feet smelling fresh" or "Available in three sizes."
