5 Unusual and Funny Valentine’s Gifts

It’s OK, you know. You don’t have to follow the herd. Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be all about hearts and soppy cards. You can go another way – give your loved one a funny, wacky or stupid Valentine’s Day gift. That is, if you are sure they have the right sense of humor.

Here are 5 Unusual and Funny Valentine’s Gifts:

#5

The Safety Girl Roadside Emergency Kit – The Safety Girl Roadside Emergency Kit contains serious roadside emergency supplies like an emergency blanket, first aid supplies and instructions to change a flat tire, but it also contains other emergency items like chocolate, nail file, aromatherapy headache remedy and more! All the necessities a woman might need. A cool gift – and a useful one, too.

#4

Dead Fred Pen Holder – Is your significant other feeling stressed and frustrated? Do they need someone to take their aggression out on? The Dead Fred Pen Holder is the perfect gift for them!

+++

#3

Dennco Golfer’s Drink Dispenser and Cooler-Kooler Klub – A perfect way to show your love to your favorite golfer. It looks like a regular golf club and fits right into your golf bag to hold an insulated 48 oz. of hot or cold fluids.

+++

#2

8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt – Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000…). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey… you’re depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you’re fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you’ll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?

#1

Sushi Bath Soap Set – If they love sushi so much they never want to be away from it, now they can take it into the bath with them. It smells like soap, though, thank God 🙂

This amazing toy is not only for kids. The Pleo is a one-week-old dinosaur that will quickly grow to become one of the most fun and exciting members of your family. This amazing robotic marvel not only moves organically, explores its environment on its own, and interacts with you, but it also expresses emotions based on its life experiences.

Pleo‘s sophisticated sensory system consists of nearly 40 devices that enable him to see, sense, touch and detect objects in order to move autonomously and explore his environment without requiring any remote control. This robotic dinosaur includes a color camera with a white-light sensor that allows him to detect bright light from dark, see colors, detect motion, track a moving object, and perceive objects in front of him. This unit also includes binaural microphones on the left and right that give him stereophonic hearing, allowing him to detect sound direction and loudness through both ears.

It’s like having a real-life pet dinosaur of your own!
