Finding unique Valentine’s Day gifts each year isn’t easy and can get rather boring. So, we found some great gag gift ideas that will make you and yours roll around on the floor laughing.
Fortunately, these items aren’t available in SA (because we haven’t lost the plot completely yet). If you really do want any of them, you can find these items on Amazon – just click on the links – but they probably won’t be delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.
Scroll down for a list of the weirdest Valentine’s Day gifts we could find…
For the long-distance couples (who want to be creeped out)
Spending Valentine’s Day apart this year? Not to worry. Tech company Little Riot has developed a pillow that will bring you closer to your partner this year, even if they’re in another city. The Pillow Talk device lets couples send the sound of their heartbeats to each other.
The wrist straps are connected to a receiver that each of you can place under your pillow. Put the wrist strap on before you climb into bed. It’ll pick up the sound of your heartbeat and send it directly to your partner’s receiver. It’s like they never left.

For the ‘Netflix and chill’ couple (and we mean just regular chilling)
Remember the Snuggie? The blanket with arms? Well, there’s another competitor on the market in the form of Slanket (sleeves + blanket) and it’s got a product just for couples. The Slanket Siamese is a 3m x 2m fleece blanket with four sleeves as opposed to the original two.
Now, there’s no need to fight over who gets to wear the sleeves in this relationship. Both you and your co-cuddler will each have sleeves to keep your arms warm and snug while reaching for the popcorn or remote.
Ever had your arm fall asleep under your partner’s head while cuddling? Yup, we know the struggle, which is why we are completely on board with this unique couple’s gift.
The Armadillow allows you and your partner to cuddle for prolonged periods of time on the couch or in bed without an aching arm. Simply slip your arm underneath and the pillow will protect it from extra weight, allowing you both to stay comfy during that Stranger Things binge.

For the outdoorsy types (who are seriously co-dependent)
Why have two umbrellas when you can have one? The Dualbrella’s has taken the standard umbrella and widened it so both you and your partner can huddle up comfortably without getting wet. The fear of getting wet while on a romantic stroll around the block is now a thing of the past – what a glorious time to be alive!
Colder weather is about to roll in, but that doesn’t mean your regular hand-in-hand evening walks need to stop. The Smittens comes with a mitten each, plus a specially designed one so that your locking hands can be cocooned with fleece.
For the couples who want to get A LOT closer this Valentine’s Day
Ever felt like you could be closer to your partner, but weren’t sure how to do it? This ridiculous pair of underwear will do just that – you physically can’t get any closer than this! Equipped with four leg holes, now you can share the same underwear with your other half.
