As much as I love Valentine’s Day, I am aware that it has been commercialized to the point where even Hallmark stands back in horror at the giant, flaming mess they have created. And while we’re all waiting for their apology, we’re also scrambling to find gifts for our significant others, our besties, and our moms (our first and truest Valentines). It’s hard to be original these days because anything you can think of has already been done and/or put into an adorable YouTube video with a hundred zillion views, but with these weird Valentine’s day gifts you can stay a notch ahead of your peers by wowing them with something I promise they have never seen before.

When I say "weird", I don’t just mean “funny” or “offbeat” — I mean weird. I mean the kind of stuff that Orin and April would give each other for Valentine’s Day on Parks and Recreation, in a terrible alternate universe where Andy Dwyer doesn’t exist to semi-steer her away from the darkness. But there’s no better way I can think of to say “take that, commercialism” than by giving your loved ones a giant pile of WTF this upcoming February 14th. So buckle your seatbelts, everybody. This is about to get freaky.
