Valentine’s Day: It can feel kind of goofy going all out to celebrate a holiday that feels made up.

If you’re one who eschews the roses-and-teddy bears thing, there are actually plenty of funny Valentine’s Day gifts available–ones that won’t make you want to vomit. (We promise, no giant chocolate hearts or Literotica books in sight)
Gifting your beloved a hilarious Valentine’s Day gift or greeting card lets you express your affection in a fun, less saccharine way, while still acknowledging the holiday. Some of these gifts even work for your best friends too, and isn’t that kind of the point? Valentines gifts for boyfriend or partners don’t always have to be expensive and sentimental. Life is serious enough, so why not have a laugh–a great sense of humor is a turn on, anyway.

He laughed when he read it. I recommend this.”
Speaking of obsessions, if you and your boo are helicopter co-pet parents, this absurdly hilarious portrait of your little prince or princess makes the ideal gift. Regal AF–as it should be, of course. One happy customer raved, “Its beautiful! I just got my canvas print of my dog and LOVE IT!

Professional and great service! I will definitely order again.”
Another funny, er, punny Valentine’s Day gift option: A card that tells your sweetie how they make you melt. Not-so-coincidentally, that’s what the inside message says.
