Depending on your significant other’s personality and interests, proclaiming your love for him or her on Valentine’s Day may require some creativity. As illustrated by actress Kristen Bell’s admission of her sloth obsession on the Ellen Degeneres Show several weeks ago, some people are simply more responsive to unusual gifts than others.
From adopting a roach for your lover to a romantic, candle-lit dinner for two at Waffle House, keep reading for a variety of options that will make your Valentine’s Day one for the books…
If a quirky Valentine’s Day is up your alley, consider incorporating one (or several) of the following into your holiday:
-an anatomically correct “beating” plush heart, complete with arteries
-a Pizza Hut proposal, featuring $10 worth of dinner, a red ruby ring, limo services, a fireworks display, photographer, videographer, and flowers (along with a price tag of $10,010)
-a Madagascar hissing roach at the Bronx Zoo named after your beloved (with a $10 donation, your partner will receive a certificate of honor stating that there is a special roach at the Zoo with his or her name on it)
-dinner reservations for two at the Waffle House in Grovetown, GA (may be available at other restaurant locations, as well)
-matching Crocs, which come with an exclusive heart-shaped Crocs promotional pillow
-a romantic couples session at your local gun club
-if you are in the New York City area, treat your sweetheart to a Valentine’s Day tour of the Newtown Creek Wastewater treatment plant in Brooklyn… you’ll walk away with a thorough understanding of the plant’s digesters, which break down the waste into harmless sludge/gas, and a Hershey kiss
If you think your honey may be more receptive to traditional Valentine’s Day gestures, opt for personalized candy heart boxes or chocolates, both of which can be found at www.pinnaclepromotions.com.
However you decide to spend your Valentine’s Day, I hope it is special, memorable, and full of love!
