1A Tote-ally Perfect Bag
This bag packs in a double whammy of a pun, in case one bout of word play simply isn't enough. Plus, it's useful in everyday life, which is always the best kind of gift.

5Can't Wait To Al-Pack-A Lunch For Work
Alpacas are a fantastically random animal, and this particular one looks like it has crossed eyes, which makes the whole gift that much more amusing. Get this tote for the workaholic in your life, because look at that little tiny alpaca briefcase! Have you ever seen anything cuter?
6For The Whisk-Takers In Your Life
If you ask me, every 20-something should have a flask handy at all times, because let's be real, cocktails are expensive, and we can't just run around buying old fashioned's left and right (I tried, and bad things happened). Urban Outfitters has a range of amazing flasks to choose from, but this one is especially punny and awesome.

9All That And Dim Sum
IMHO every baby should be covered in puns from head to toe until he or she is old enough to say otherwise. This dim sum onesie will make the cute lil chub in your life that much cuter and chubbier, because babies are basically really cute, human versions of dim sum, right?
10An Egg-specially Amazing Play On Words
