Believe It or Not!
At Ripley’s we celebrate Valentine’s a bit differently. Traditional candies and flowers just won’t cut it. This year, we are counting down the top 5 most UNBELIEVABLE Valentine’s Day ideas.
#5 Mittens for Two
Want to hold your sweetie’s hand on Valentine’s but it’s just too darn cold? The “Smitten Snuggle” lets you keep your mitts warm AND lets you stay close to your honey. This unique gift is pretty reasonable too, only $18 on Etsy.
#4 Rotten Flowers
Looking for the perfect gift for that not-so-special unloved one? Send some Dirty Rotten Flowers. Their website says it all:
Love left you forlorn?
Got dumped for the yoga instructor?
Want to send a reminder of the “good times?”
Maybe you’re feeling a little cynical…
Yet another forgotten anniversary?
Or, maybe you just want to have a little fun….
I particularly like their testimonials…
“My girlfriend literally left me a “dear John” note after I left for the office. She’s now shacked up with her trainer. I sent her the Morticia bouquet…and got the last word.
– Jonathan, 32, computer programmer
“When my future daughter-in-law conveniently uninvited me to my son’s birthday event, I sent her Dirty Rotten Flowers. She’s not speaking to me…exactly what I hoped for…Thank you DRF.”
– Catherine, 65, wife and mother
#3 Bleeding Hearts
Nothing puts me in the festive mood like a bleeding heart. Lily Vanilli Cakes is baking up a special Valentine’s concoction just for couples who like to have a little spice in their life.
The anatomically correct heart is actually a red velvet sponge, cream cheese frosting and blackcurrant & cherry ‘blood’. You can get the sweet for around $10 and 20% of sales go to a charity that raises money for young people with cancer.
#2 Give a Piece of Yourself
Polly van der Glas has the perfect Valentine’s gift if you want to give your loved one a real piece of yourself. Polly makes jewelery from old pieces of, well, YOU: hair, nails, teeth… you name it, she’ll make it!
#1 Fake Girlfriend
Want to show your ex you’ve moved on? Want to get your family off your back about your perpetual bachelorhood? Then Fake Dating is for you! Namorofake offers fake dating services. Pay anywhere $10-$100 and get a beautiful fake girlfriend to post on your profile. The cost breaks down to how many days and how many posts per day you want.
