Our online secure store displays the perfect funny gag gift, practical joke, or novelty item you've been looking for. Come in, shop and have fun, and keep playing those practical jokes - the world needs to laugh more!

Unnecessary Necessities and its happy band of gypsies have traveled around the Southwest in an attempt to spread laughter and jokes to a straight-faced world. Now, in trying to spread the merriment further, we have placed a small variety of our practical jokes, gag gifts, pranks, novelties and other fun items on the internet.
