The Only List of Office Prank Ideas You'll Ever Need

Posted by Tyler Ward on

Office pranks can be fun and can improve your company's culture.  They can also get you fired.  Some of that depends on who you pull your prank on.  If it's your uptight boss, they may not take getting pranked the right way.  In some cases you can get fired from jobs you don't even have. If your boss is the type of person who may take kindly to practical jokes, then have at it.  Normally office pranks are done among coworkers though.  If you're pranking your friends in the office or even pranking your enemies in the office, so long as you aren't pranking management it's normally fine if it's lighthearted.  
For that reason, we've compiled a list of the only office pranks you'll ever need.  None of these pranks are so extreme that they'll get you fired (unless you're a terrible employee already and they are just looking for a reason to fire you).  However, all of these pranks are still easy and funny.  So next time you need to pull an innocent office prank.  Look no further.

This prank is even funnier when you see it in reference to an empty cubicle next door.  When the tin foil office prank is only done on one cubicle, you know you are a real target.  Or, in our case, since we are the pranksters - your victim will know they have been pranked... specifically!

This is a gag gift and a prank at the same time but the gag gift is an office cubicle wrapped in gift wrap for the sake of a prank.  This is one of the best office pranks you can pull.  However, it likely took more time to wrap this office than it did to rip all the beautiful gift wrap down.
If you're looking for more ideas for what type of office Christmas prank you want to pull- the only question you should be asking at this point is what type of gift wrap and what color?  Red will really stand out!
An office prank is always better when your victim enjoys getting pranked.  The last few office Christmas pranks will only be funny if the person you're pranking reacts as lovely as the lady in this picture.
