A prank is a joke that you play on someone in order to trick them.
Do you and your boyfriend have a similar sense of humor? Do you often laugh at the same jokes and have the ability to crack each other up?
Having a sense of humor is important in a relationship and it can keep things exciting when it would otherwise be stale, boring, and way too serious. Sometimes you just need a reason to be silly.
As a couple, it is important that you and your boyfriend are able to laugh together. You should be able to laugh at each other and at yourselves.
Whether one of you needs to cheer up or you are feeling like the relationship needs some levity, one thing is for certain; a good prank will be sure to keep your boyfriend on his toes.
Who says that you necessarily need to wait for April Fool’s Day in order to prank your boyfriend? A good prank is an unexpected one and your boyfriend will never see your prank coming on the other days of the year.
There are many different kinds of pranks that you can attempt to pull on your boyfriend and they will range from the simple to the elaborate.
When deciding, which prank to carry out, consider how much time you have to prepare for the prank and whether or not you want to use things that you already have at home.
Some pranks can be simple yet effective, while others are elaborate and take a lot more time to prepare. Either way, laughter is the ideal payoff.
Below are some ideas for funny pranks that will leave you and your boyfriend laughing.
34 Boyfriend Pranks
Give him a morning scare
If you live together or sometimes sleep over with your boyfriend, then this is a great idea for a prank that you can try out on him. Get a scary mask and sneak it under your pillow when he is not looking.
Make sure that you put it on in the morning and wake him up wearing the mask. Or you can set an alarm and make sure that your masked face is the first thing that he sees when he wakes up.
You can even film his reaction or take a picture of his face when he sees you wearing the scary mask.
Leave a surprise on his bed
Here is another funny bed prank that you can pull on your boyfriend. Find something scary like a big plastic spider or snake that you can place on your pillow. Sneak out of bed before he gets up and watch him wake up to that scary critter that is on your pillow.
Change your outfits
Take the opportunity to change up your style with this prank. Every time you leave the room, head into the bathroom or your bedroom and change your outfit. Do this a few times and see if your boyfriend notices that anything is different.
If your boyfriend does notice that you have changed your outfit, act like you have no idea what he is talking about. The more drastic your outfit changes are, the better. Remember to be discreet and subtle about it, that way he will be left scratching his head.
There is no denying the importance of personal hygiene, especially when you are in a relationship.
Does your boyfriend use a lot of hygiene products like body wash, face wash, and shaving gel? You can do this to his toothpaste tube, shampoo bottles, and conditioner as well.
Cut out small squares of plastic wrap, unscrew the tops off of all his tubes and bottles, and cover with the plastic wrap. Put the tops back on and he will have no idea why nothing is coming out.
“Take in” a stray animal
Are you known for being a big animal lover? If so, then this might be the perfect prank for you to pull on your boyfriend.
This one is a funny prank that does not require much work. Get a picture of a wild animal off of the internet and text it to your boyfriend, saying that you have brought an animal home.
For example, send him a picture of a coyote, but say that you have adopted a dog. If you can photoshop it to look like it is inside your home, that will be even more convincing.
I can’t believe it’s butter
Is your boyfriend always needing to smear deodorant on himself? Replace your boyfriend’s deodorant with butter. You might need to let the butter soften up first before you put it in the deodorant stick.
Be our guest
If you live with your boyfriend, trick him into thinking that your parents will be coming to stay with you for an entire month.
If you live together, then maybe it is usually your boyfriend’s job to take the trash out of the house. This time, you can make the task extra fun for him.
Ask your boyfriend to take out the garbage. Squat down next to the actual bag of trash and put a black garbage bag over yourself so that it looks like you are another bag of garbage.
Make sure that you are completely covered by the trash bag and that you are not moving when he comes towards you.
Stand up and surprise him when he comes over to take out the trash. He will have no idea what is happening and he will be completely shocked.
Shake it up
Many of us like to enjoy a fizzy drink every now and then. But the worst thing is when we pop open a can or twist open a bottle of soda, only for it to fizz all over the place.
Does your boyfriend love to drink carbonated beverages? Shake up all the sodas in the house and let science take care of everything else. Just make sure that there are no electronics nearby when he does this.
All eyes on you
There are fewer things that are more unsettling than the feeling that you are being watched. But sometimes, having a lot of eyes on you can be quite funny.
What is not funny about a bunch of googly eyes? Surprise your boyfriend by giving a pair of eyes to everything inside your fridge.
If you do not have any googly eyes that you can use, try using a marker to draw eyes on all your bottles of milk, ketchup, cartons of eggs, and so on. It will be as if these inanimate things have come to life.
Wait and see how long it takes for him to notice that all of these objects now have personalities and pairs of eyes that are staring right at him.
Give them a honk
Use a washable marker to leave a message on the back of your boyfriend’s car. Write “honk and wave, he does not know this is here!” He will be so confused during his drive and will not know why everyone is honking and waving at him.
50 shades of grey
Are you looking for something different in your love life? Sometimes you just need to spice things up a little in the bedroom. It helps to be creative.
Mislead your boyfriend by saying that you wanted to change up things at home. Tell him that you got him 50 shades of grey and that you will go through it together tonight.
When he gets home, call him into the bedroom. Instead of handing him the book called 50 Shades of Grey, give him a bunch of grey paint chips from the hardware store.
If you can make sure that there are actually 50 different shades of grey in that pile of paint chips, then it will be even funnier.
Toilet paper tower
Toilet paper is an essential thing to have in your bathroom. But what if you have too much of it? Then you can try to pull off this fun prank on your boyfriend.
Get plenty of rolls of toilet paper to stack up in your bathroom. Build a tower that your boyfriend can only help but admire.
Start off by putting one roll of toilet paper on the bottom and then put two rolls on top. Keep building the toilet paper tower as high as you can. You might even have to lean the tower against the wall a little bit.
The idea is that he will have a bit of a challenging time taking a roll off of the top of the tower without knocking everything down.
How high do you want this tower of toilet paper to be? As tall as you? As tall as your boyfriend? Or maybe you want it to touch the ceiling. The choice and the challenge are up to you.
We all deserve a little pampering now and then. This one is both a prank and a little makeover all rolled into one.
Is your boyfriend a heavy sleeper? Give him a funny surprise by pampering him in his sleep. Paint his nails while he stays fast asleep in dreamland.
After he wakes up, wait for him to notice that there is something different about his feet and hands.
Make him a cup of T
Tea soothes the soul and there is nothing like a hot cup to warm you up.
Does your boyfriend like to drink a cup of tea every now and then? Offer to make him a cup of tea. Cut out pieces of paper shaped like the letter T and put the pieces of paper in a cup for him instead.
Fish is a nice, healthy meal to eat. Does your boyfriend like to eat fish? Tell him that you are preparing him some delicious fish for dinner.
Of course, you will not really be giving him fish from the ocean. You will be tricking him with this silly, sweet prank.
Serve up some Swedish fish candy or Goldfish crackers on a fancy dinner plate instead. Do not forget the silverware and make a big show of it when you serve him his “fish dinner.”
This next prank will be sure to leave your boyfriend feeling a bit scrambled.
Here is an egg-cellent prank for you to play on your unsuspecting boyfriend. If your boyfriend loves to eat scrambled eggs or omelets for breakfast, then this is a great prank to play on him.
Take all of the eggs in the fridge and hard boil them when he is not around. Put the boiled eggs back in the carton and wait for him to try to crack open the eggs the next time he tries to bake or make breakfast.
Nothing is sweeter than a prank that takes the other person completely by surprise. Trick your boyfriend with this sweet yet silly prank.
Does your boyfriend like to eat sweets? Maybe he likes sprinkled, frosted donuts or maybe he enjoys the richness of the chocolate.
Get a donut box or a chocolate box, empty the box out, and fill it up with vegetables instead. Or you can even just leave a note inside the empty box that says, “gotcha!”
Ring the alarm
Most of us rely on an alarm clock to help us get our day started. Without one, we might still be snoozing in bed, which is bad if you have something to do and somewhere to go.
Is your boyfriend a heavy sleeper or a light sleeper? Either way, he will be sure to find this prank rather alarm-ing.
Sneakily take your boyfriend’s phone and set the alarm to ring at various intervals throughout the morning.
If you want to take this even a step further, you can get an alarm clock, set it, and hide it somewhere like in one of his dresser drawers so that he will have to go searching for it.
Everything is upside down
Everything is normal and ordinary until one day, you notice that something is a little different. We always take for granted the small boring details of our everyday lives, right down to the condiments and bottles inside the refrigerator.
Take everything inside the fridge and turn it upside down. If you have enough time and energy to do it, you can turn the dining room furniture upside down too.
There is nothing like a fun, relaxing trip to the beach. Sandy shores and salty water are great for the soul. Sometimes, the beach is also a great place to conduct a little bit of mischief.
A trip to the beach with your boyfriend can be tons of fun. But finding a way to prank him at the beach is even more fun.
Prank your boyfriend at the beach with just a towel. Wait for him to be out of view, maybe while he goes to the bathroom.
Quickly dig a hole into the sand that is no bigger than the towel. Then place the towel over it and watch him fall in as he tries to sit on that spot.
Some of us are light sleepers while others can sleep through just about anything. If your boyfriend is a heavy sleeper, take advantage of this by giving him a temporary tattoo.
You can try to put the temporary tattoo somewhere obvious like his arm or the back of the neck if you want everyone else but him to notice it. See if he likes the new ink that you have given him once he realizes that it is there.
Sticky toilet paper
Replace the toilet paper that is on the toilet paper holder with a lint roller roll instead. Wait for your boyfriend to notice.
Make sure that the actual toilet paper rolls are out of arms to reach from the toilet.
Does your boyfriend have a car? While some pranks can be subtle, others are flashy. This prank will be sure to grab his attention and the attention of others as well.
A post-it note can help you remember important things. Or it can help your carry out a flashy prank that will get everyone to pay attention.
You will need some time to execute this prank and it might help you to have an extra set of hands. Cover his car in post-it notes.
Does your boyfriend love to eat Oreos? Trick him by squeezing some toothpaste into the middle of some Oreo cookies.
Put the cookies back into the container and he will never guess that you just snuck a secret ingredient in there.
Does your boyfriend take his coffee with sugar? Switch the salt and sugar and wait for him to realize that he has put a spoonful of salt into his morning coffee.
Confuse your boyfriend by switching around some of the contacts in his phone. Whether you switch you and a friend of his or his parents and siblings around, it will be funny to see the confused reactions that arise from this silly prank.
Wait and see if he figures out on his own that you messed with his contacts.
This toothbrush prank is probably less terrible if you use a toothbrush that is not brand new. Take your boyfriend’s toothbrush and have it set in a bowl of jello.
Use the autocorrect feature to change some basic words in your boyfriend’s phone. Go for some commonly used words like yes, no, or lol.
While some people replace these words with very short, silly sayings, others find it funny to replace a word with a really long block of text instead. Either way, your boyfriend is going to be confused until he realizes that his phone has been tampered with.
Does your boyfriend have a habit of always checking the time? Try to trick him with this next time-changing prank.
Throw off your boyfriend’s schedule by changing the time on his phone and appliances to an hour early. He will be running around and rushing to show up to his appointment, to class, or to school early.
If he owns a watch, do not forget to change the time on there as well.
Do you and your boyfriend take turns doing the dishes? Or maybe you will be getting your hands dirty and your boyfriend will have a reason to wash his hands.
Either way, make sure that you get him to use the kitchen sink for this prank. Take a rubber band and tie it tightly around the spray nozzle on the kitchen sink.
Make sure that it is pointed in the right direction so that your boyfriend will get sprayed with water the next time he uses the sink.
Sew it up
Trick your boyfriend by sewing up the opening in his boxers. The next time he goes to the bathroom, he will be struggling to figure out what happened to his underwear.
An honest conversation
This one is a texting prank. Message your boyfriend, telling him that you have not been honest with him lately or that you have not been telling him everything.
Be very vague for a little bit until he starts to ask you to explain to much. Leave him waiting in anticipation, but do not let him go too crazy.
When it is time to tell him the truth, tell him something silly yet true such as, “I ate all of the cookies that we bought earlier this week.”
Here is another texting prank. Tell your boyfriend that you have been trying to make some tough decisions lately and that you are going through a new stage in your life.
Say that you need to ask him something that might be hard for him to answer, but you need him to be completely honest with you no matter what.
Then ask him for advice on something small like which outfit to wear, which shoes to buy, or which color lipstick to pick out.
