While most people will get chocolates or flowers for Valentine’s Day, a new survey from fitsmallbusiness.com shows some folks...about 43 million of them.. have gotten some truly awful gifts! It turns out spending for Valentine’s Day increased 6% last year, with the average person spending 13% more than the year before. Most spend about $142 for their Valentine, 10% say they have gone into debt for their love.
Here are the worst Valentine’s Day gifts people have received, according to the survey:
- A Break-Up
- Wendy's Drive Thru Meal
- Wild Squirrel (and rabies shots)
- Dog Treats (when the recipient doesn't have a dog)
- Gwyneth Paltrow's Vagina Candle
- "Shareable" Clothing
- Funeral Arrangements
- A Toilet Seat
These are some pretty bad choices here. Chances are you won't have a Valentine after February 14th if you give this kind of gift.
So spread the love, and Happy Valentine's Day!
