Hey lovebirds, we’re less than 10 days away from the big V-Day which begs the question: have you gotten that perfect gift for your loved one yet? Of course there’s no need to freak out just yet! There are plenty of places to find a little something special for your boyfriend or girlfriend such as your local mall, that quaint boutique or our fave spot: the internet.
Sure, you can hop of Amazon or eBay for something, but nothing says love like something crafted from the crafty minds of Etsy store owners. Etsy, the place for unique, one-of-a-kind items that are tailor-made for occasions like Valentine’s Day. But beware: sometimes people go a little too far in the craft department. A little overboard. A little ‘WTF’?
We took a gander through Etsy and tracked down some of the strangest Valentine’s Day gifts available for purchase. We’re not judging if you want to buy these things, but we’re definitely scratching our heads a little bit over these, um, interesting things.
1. Custom Folded Book Sculpture ($51.14)
Why would you do that to a perfectly normal book?
2. Valentine’s Day Wreath ($47.73)
Since when were wreaths used for non-Christmas holidays?
3. Mason Canning Jar Cozy ($13.64)
Wait, why does your mason jar need a cozy?
4. Crochet Heart Coaster Set ($17.05)
Etsy, you have an addiction. To crocheting things.
5. Valentine’s day mittens ($3.93)
This doesn’t seem practical AT ALL. (Note: The price only gets you the pattern of the mitts, you still have to knit the rest yourself. This is not for lazy people who don’t know how to knit…like us.)
6. Love Bedroom Wall Decal ($9.12)
Just to make sure you feel the love every day when you wake up. Every. Single. Day. FOREVER.
7. Engraved message beach pebble ($18.23)
Nothing says ‘You rock!’ like…an actual rock.
8. ‘I WHEELIE like you’ card and candies ($6.82)
We understand this one’s for the kids, but are kids seriously doling out fancy Valentine’s like these nowadays? This is just not fair.
9. Personalized Valentine’s Day Block ($28.41)
It’s a block of wood. You’re giving your loved one A BLOCK OF WOOD.
9. Handmade polymer clay pears ($36.36)
It’s a thing of clay. You’re giving your loved one THINGS OF CLAY.
10. Copper fish keychain ($25.00)
Just remember: you’re comparing your loved one to a sea creature that you captured using a bait and hook. Just sayin’.
11. ‘Olive You’ Pillow Cover ($43.18)
Worst. Pun. Ever.
12. New Dad t-shirt ($14.72)
Not recommended if this is your way of breaking some news to your boyfriend…
13. Men’s Boxer Short ($11.35)
Guaranteed to freak out your partner.
14. Love Chakra Dream Catcher ($37.21)
A what? (Also: file under the crochet problem.)
