116 Anti-Gifts for Valentine's Day Rebels

Puerile Presents to Anger Your Lover

— January 17, 2009 — Lifestyle
I hate Valentine’s Day but am already being drowned in a sea of red heart-shaped slush. People are already hunting out the perfect presents for their loved ones, and restaurants and hotels are already booked. Sod that!

If you want to show some rebellion against this “purely commercial day,” then this cluster has all you need to ruin the day. From plush STD’s, tampon tattoos, tears, scary dolls, and blood necklaces, there are plenty of options for you to really make your lover mad this Valentine’s Day.
