What is the creepiest Valentines day gift you've ever seen? (In person, advertised, etc.)

When she was in high school, my friend's boyfriend gave her an engraved hammer for Valentine's Day because their love "was breaking down walls." Then she dumped him. And he proceeded to stalk her for the next three years. Shudder.

I saw a commercial for the Vermont teddy bear company this morning. Super creepy. An $80 stuffed animal with heart tattoos in fake silk boxer shorts. Totally gross.

I also saw an ad for a pajama gram. Ordering neglige online and adding in some warm champagne doesn't sound romantic. It kinda sounds like it would give you a rash.

Mayor Bloomberg gave me the clap one year for Valentine's Day. Hence our animosity.

My friend's ex-girlfriend would give inappropriately lavish gifts. One year she gave him a dvd player -- and that was in high school, when it was new technology.

Also in high school, my friend received a note with glue-sticked cutouts from the coupon section of the newspaper. The cutouts: "Pride" (as in the cleaning product) and "Joy" (as in the cleaning product). The message: "You're my pride and joy."

I think the high creativity points are cancelled out by the high creepy points...

I got a box of Potato Buds once. I learned from then on to not tell people when I'm craving mashed potatoes.

Oh this is a fun one. My junior year of college I was studying abroad and one of "guy friends" sent me a big chocolate devil with the inscription saying "I'm your horny devil".... worst part about it was the chocolate devil oddly resembled him.

Also the other day, I saw you could send someone a love note in the Express..... they suggested sending one to your pet.... I mean don't get me wrong, I love my dog, but seriously!?!?! CRAZY!

Its creepy that cell phone companies market phones for valentines day.
