Valentine’s Day, once a tribute to a Roman Catholic martyr, has been perverted by florists and candy companies. That’s my excuse for not buying the missus anything on February 14th. It’s worked in the past, and I’m sticking to it.
Fun fact: Did you know that until 1969, the Catholic Church formally recognized eleven Valentine’s Days?
If you’re one of the unlucky millions that have to buy something, here are a couple of non-traditional gift ideas:
Heart Butcher Knives
Created by Bloodbath McGrath comes personalized heart butcher knives. For those moments when a severed heart reminds you of your lover.
Edible Candy G-String and Bra
A great way to end a Valentine’s Day meal, the Edible Candy G-String and Bra contains 30 fruit-flavored candy pieces, and has just 60 calories. Great if you’re watching your weight and if don’t care about the hygiene issues that may arise from eating sweets out your lover’s vajayjay.
8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt
The idea behind the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt is that you wear one and you give one to your lover. When you both are in range, the pixelated hearts start glowing to full charge. The hearts will dip to two and a half when you both are out of range. Geeky, but cute nonetheless.
World’s Largest Inflatable Heart
Nothing says “I Love You” more than with an outrageously large inflatable heart.
