Finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift can be kind of stressful. You want it to sum up how much you care about the person, without giving off any sort of weird message. You definitely don’t want your valentine to get creeped out when you’re trying to celebrate the holiday.
I mean… maybe one of these actually is the perfect gift for your special someone, but I’m just saying that on the whole, there’s a pretty good chance that these gifts would leave the recipient at least a teensy bit puzzled. Wondering what made our list of weird gifts to try and avoid? Let’s take a look:
Eat Your Heart OutYes, this is a holiday about hearts, but do you really want to use this gelatin mold to make human heart shaped dessert for you and your valentine to snack on? That's just too creepy for my dinner table. Source: Neatoshop.com
Broken Heart ShirtsOkay, here's the thing: convincing your valentine to wear matching outfits could be a lot on its own, but then there's the fact these shirts don't make sense. These heart halves don't even look like they fit together! You are both just wearing two broken hearts! That seems like the opposite of what Valentine's Day is about. Source: Fibers.com
Squeaky Rat ToysJust... what?! Why rats? Why do they have heart spots? Okay, apparently "love rat" is slang for a cheater, so that brings up yet another question of why you would give a valentine gift that implies they are not faithful. So confusing. Source: Neatoshop.com
Love Note Toilet PaperI feel like there should always be some boundaries in a relationship, and the bathroom is a good place to start. Seriously, do you really want to think about what that gift will be used for? I do not. Source: JustPaperRoses.com
Voodoo DollYikes! I appreciate that this is creative, but if you and your valentine don't have some sort of shared appreciation for voodoo dolls, this could come off as just the slightest bit terrifying. Maybe a lot terrifying. Source: Etsy.com
A Hand-y iPhone CaseThis is already a little odd, but if you thought it would be romantic to dress the hand up like yours with your favorite nail polish and bracelet, I worry it could reach some very epic creepiness. Source: DailyBits.com
Three-Piece Winter GearAll right, the idea behind it is cute since it would let you and your boo stay toasty while you hold hands. However, this poses all sorts of logistical questions. What if you need to go in two separate directions? What if someone needs to drive? This just seems like it would end up with two very frustrated people. Source: Suntekstore.com
A Couples SnuggieI'm not hating on being comfortable, but again, logistics! You don't want to send the message that you need to be attached all the time. Plus, I worry your valentine might get annoyed if you make him get up off the couch every time you need to go get something from the other room. That's like the opposite of comfortable.

Your Personal ScentFrom what I understand, you can get a custom scent made based on your DNA from this company, and then if you want to gift it to someone, that's an option, too. Basically, getting your valentine a fragrance based on your DNA so they can always smell like "you" seems kinda creepy. Source: MyDNAfragrance.com
A Bacon BraIf you were trying to spice things up this Valentine's Day, I would suggest not trying out this bacon bra. I don't totally understand its construction, but more importantly, you don't want grease on your clothes! That is like an anti-gift to yourself. Source: Glamour.com
