Worst Valentine's Day Gifts People Received

Valentine's Day rolls around once a year to either throw the world's hopeful romantics into a lustful frenzy full of promise and loving gifts and positive energy, or it can push other folks into a misery-drenched state of loneliness unlike anything they normally experience on a daily basis. It's a highly commercialized "holiday." Many people end up digging deep into their bank accounts, and dishing out the big bucks on fancy meals that would otherwise never be considered. Obviously, this year's a bit of a curveball for everyone. Like, can you even get into a restaurant in the first place? And if you decide to go that route for the Valentine's Day date, is it really something that you're comfortable with considering the circumstances of this tumultuous time? Outside of that though, the process that can go into trying to get your special someone a meaningful gift can be a nerve-wracking one, riddled by self doubt. All this pressure can build up over whether or not you're actually getting something that they'll appreciate, or if you're just unknowingly digging yourself a deep hole because you failed to get them something that reflects how well you know them, and how much they mean to you.

Maybe, there's all this momentum around Valentine's Day because of the sea of sappy Rom Coms we have available at our disposal. Romantic movies can end up contributing toward this overriding narrative that you need someone to be happy, and if you end up with that special someone, you're obligated to provide them gifts on Valentine's Day. Who knows? To each their own. Everyone will naturally do it a little different.

With respect to this AskReddit thread though, we have people sharing the very worst of the Valentine's Day gifts that they've ever received. Can you imagine just being in the same room as someone who was receiving one of these gifts? The amount of awkward silence that must've ensued after some of these gift exchanges, must've been palpable. I mean, hey, you live and you learn. Sometimes you end up fully committing to a gift for your partner that you've deluded yourself into thinking they'll like, and not completely loathe. 

We can all fall prey to bouts of well intentioned confusion. If you're lucky you'll be able to get away with a wipeout on a Valentine's Day gift by riding the "it's the thought that counts" wave. Because at the end of the day, it really is. If you have an agreement with your partner where you guys are game with giving each other Valentine's Day gifts, then it's really up to the both of you to not be too critical of one another when the gift exchange part of the process rolls around. Or, maybe the silly banter and roasting of each other is one of the funnest parts of the whole situation. All in all, we hope that these Valentine's Day gift fails make you feel a little bit better about any unfortunate moments you've experienced on Valentine's Day.

These 35 Intentionally Inappropriate Valentine's Day Cards Are So Terrible They're Actually Amazing

The comedic relief present in these delightfully vulgar Valentine's Day cards is the perfect companion for anyone even slightly sickened by the glaring commercialization meets sappy romantic comedy-tainted nature of this 'holiday.' Picking out a decent card that doesn't involve you sacrificing your self-respect alongside a bouquet of overpriced roses can be a whole lot easier if you pull something from this rag tag crew. Trust me bro (or maybe don't), you'll get some points for attempted crack at keeping it light and humorous. If it ends up buzzkilling your night and failing to put a smile on his/her face though, don't say I didn't warn ya.

Wasn't yesterday just fanfuckintastic? A ton of lovedrunk, pie-eyed couples aspiring to realize their dreams of finally living out the rom-com movie they loved, and you loathed...madly running around for overpriced dinners, and budget-obliterating bottles of wine at tastefully overcrowded candlelit ristorantes (cause that's how you fancy spell restaurants, right) staffed by polished and meticulously groomed waiters that expect nothing less than the hefty kind of tip that'll send a man into a brothy sea of Top Ramen till next paycheck. Yeah, all rants aside. The 'holiday' is over, and these people brought their A game on Twitter when it came to expressing their 'Valentines Remorse' or lack thereof.

Guy Handwrites Entire Script to 'Bee Movie' For His Girlfriend, In Most Romantic Gesture of 2016

In what is hopefully the last bit of Bee Movie meme-ing this year, a freshman at Baylor University wrote the script to Bee Movie by hand for his girlfriend as some sort of Christmas gift. Who says romance isn’t dead ironic?

Conner Fastenau spent three hours, three human hours, 180-EARTH MINUTES, transcribing the 2007 script to Bee Movie, the film about a talking bee that Jerry Seinfeld made for some reason, as sign of his romantic attraction for an adult human woman. She reportedly “got a good laugh,” so it was “worth it,” Fastenau told Buzzfeed

via GIPHY

Bee Movie has been the subject of a strange resurgence of late. Earlier this year, someone put the script to Bee Movie on a shirt in really small print, and just last month, a video that featured all of Bee Movie except every time someone said “bee” the playback sped up went viral. The world continues to be in awe not only of Bee Movie’s very existence, but also ongoing cultural relevance.

Since the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, people have been hoping their siblings, Harry and Pippa respectively, would get together as well. There was even a rumor that the two were caught kissing at the wedding in 2011.



Now, according to an insider in an interview with OK! Magazine, they finally got together like everyone predicted. The insider said, "They're trying to play it coy but there's no doubt that this is developing into something serious."

And indeed, it must be serious because other reports according to magic.co.uk are saying that the two had a romantic dinner with pasta and the music of Adele. If that's not serious, I don't know what is.

Jennifer Lawrence mentioned in her December Vogue interview that she couldn't get a date. This is what she confessed to the magazine, which Travis Fishburn of Boise, Idaho heard loud and clear: 

“I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am.”

Now Fishburn has graciously offered to fix her problem by taking her out on a date. The video is growing in popularity, maybe Jennifer Lawrence will see it and let him help her out with her "boy troubles".
