Official Ripley’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

As soon as the Christmas decorations leave the shelves, the Valentine’s Day gifts go up. Even with advance warning, there never fails to be people scrambling last minute to find that perfect gift for their loved one. Valentine’s Day shopping expenses have hit an all time high with $18.9 million being spent last year.

If you’re one of the unlucky few who saved your shopping at the last minute, here are some suggestions to make your loved one feel oddly special.

Blood Raspberry Chocolates

Chocolate has always been a Valentine’s Day staple. But if you’re running late in making your purchases, chances are most stores will be sold out of those heart-shaped boxes of assorted chocolate. Instead, maybe you should try Zotter’s Raspberry Blood Chocolate bar.

Valentine's Day Chocolate The candy bar is made up of Bitter Chocolate, Raspberry Ganache, and just a little Pig’s Blood for added flavor (2% of Pig’s Blood to be exact).

The gift isn’t ideal for vegetarians, but according to the product description, meat-eaters will consume blood in various forms while eating a meal. So why not skip all that pesky cooking and get it in its purest form. Surely the chocolate will help the blood go down easier.

Nothing says “I love you” like ensuring your loved one is getting the proper amount of iron from their candy.

Lover’s Mitt

February is notorious for being one of the coldest months of the year. If you’re concerned about keeping warm but still want everyone on the street to know you’re in love, then you might want to buy the Red Heart Shaped Lovers Mitten. With this handy invention, you’ll be able to proclaim your love while walking down the street.

Barbie Part Jewelry

If diamonds aren’t your girl’s best friend, maybe dismembered Barbie dolls are. Artist Margaux Lange creates and sells unique pieces of jewelry out of portions of chopped up Barbie and Ken dolls.

The pieces themselves are more cute than creepy, but wearing bits and pieces of chopped up Barbie could send an interesting message.

Corpse Flower

The cost of roses goes up every year around Valentine’s Day. The increase accounts for the cost of production, transportation, and the general demand – but an increase is an increase, and sometimes people may even need nation 21 loans to get the perfect gifts.

If you’re looking for a favorable flower alternative, look no further than the Corpse Flower.

Standing over ten feet tall, the Corpse Flower shows that your love is large and all encompassing.

With a unique scent like that of a rotting animal carcass, the flower proves that your love is one of a kind.

Since it only blooms once every ten years, giving your loved one a Corpse Flower bulb shows that you’re in the relationship for the long haul.

Of course, not everyone has a loved one they’ll be buying gifts for this year. For anyone who might still be single out there, these gifts are for you.

First up is the Boyfriend Body Pillow.

Maybe you haven’t met the right person yet, or maybe committing to a full person is just not your style. Whatever the case, the Boyfriend Body Pillow gives you all of the cuddling perks with none of the hassle of being attached to an entire body.
