With sayings like “Seriously, learn how to park,” and “Hello! You suck at parking,” this is a hilariously funny gift that’s sure to bring a smile to the police grads’ face (whether they decide to use them or not!).
If the police grad you know is someone who loves to customize their man cave or office, grab them a police-themed road sign as a funny decoration! Check out this vintage-looking sign that says, “It’s A Police Officer Thing. You Wouldn’t Understand.”, or this one labelled “Police Officer Dr.”.
If you’re looking for something even more customized, consider ordering this street sign, which you can completely customize the text on! Put the grad’s last name, nickname, or a funny inside-joke!
Looking for a practical gag gift? Grab a box of Bulletproof coffee! Whether they use it to recover from all the late nights of studying they’ve done, or save it for on the job, the name of this coffee alone is enough to bring some laughter.
Plus the coffee is certified clean, tested for toxins, Rainforest Alliance Certified, and the company directly partners with farms to ensure sustainable operations! The company’s mission is also perfect for a recent police academy grad, “For the CEOs, the churners and burners, the parents, the dreamers, the people who want to be the best versions of themselves. We got you. What are you capable of? More than you might think.”
Inspiration, practicality, and humour wrapped in one, this coffee is a great idea if you’re looking for funny police academy graduation gifts!
This linen pillow-case for a couch throw pillow is one of our favorite ways to celebrate their graduation! The text on the pillow reads, “I like big busts and I cannot lie,” which is a hilarious play on words, sure to make the recipient laugh!
Help the police academy grad you know celebrate the start of their career with this bullet shot glass! This is a hilarious, albeit blunt reminder of the life they’ve chosen.
The gift is also practical if they do drink, or a great decorative piece if they don’t! Pair it with a celebratory bottle of alcohol or faux-alcohol if you’re looking to add something extra to the gift.
The stereotypical image of a police officer is them sitting with a coffee mug and donut in their hand. Play into this stereotype with a funny police coffee mug! Check out this one that says, “trust me, I’m almost a police officer” (or which you can customize to say whatever you want), this “police nutritional facts” mug, or this “10-4, coffee that” mug, which is microwave and dishwasher safe.
Pair the mug with a Starbucks gift card or the Bulletproof coffee suggested above and you’ve got a practical yet funny police officer graduation gift!
For a hilarious and maybe slightly grim reminder of the life they’ve signed up for, grab this crime scene pan holder! Designed as a crime scene chalk line, the holder is BPA free and FDA approved, non-slip, durable, and dishwasher safe! We’re all about funny police academy graduation gifts that are also super practical, and this definitely fits that criteria.
Does the police grad you know have trouble taking a break? Or, maybe they don’t and you just like to make fun of them for being high strung? 😉 Either way, these off-duty police socks are the perfect gag gift! They’re soft and comfortable, while also being a hilarious and long-lasting gift!
“We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been – we are freer, healthier, and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked – the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter” (Amazon).
Mark Manson has written a number of books about the state of the world (most notably The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck), which he addresses with both humour and honesty. Police grads are likely very aware of the challenges of the world they’re likely to face after graduation, and may even have some anxiety around them.
If they decide to read it, this book will give them some laughs, practical insight, and hope, but even if they don’t read it, the title itself provides a way to poke fun at their career path and the struggles that likely lay ahead, in a kind and funny way!
Perfect for a night out with their friends or colleagues, or to celebrate their recent graduation, this police vest beer holder is a funny and customizable gift idea!
The holder comes with a removable police patch, which is made of waterproof vinyl and can be customized for any police department, law enforcement club or group. Consider putting a department they’d love to be a part of, or, if you know them really well – one they’d hate to be part of for an extra laugh!
Pair it with a case of beer for what we’re sure will be a much appreciated and funny gift!
