With everyone's favorite consumerist holiday fast approaching, it's easy to get stressed out about what to get your significant other for Valentine's Day. You feel like you have to be able to get them the perfect, sentimental, romantic gift and there are displays of heart-shaped food in every store you go into.
Sometimes though, your perfect romantic plan doesn't work out or a product doesn't land exactly as an advertiser might have expected, and you get to laugh about it!
Remember To Get Tested Folks
They have to have known what they were doing right? This couldn't have been a happy coincidence, it's too perfect to be a twist of fate. Some clever critter knew exactly what he was doing.
A 2-For-1 Deal You Don't Normally Advertise
If you're someone who happens to actually apply for this promotion and you have both a wife & a girlfriend, are you really going to bring them both into the same spa?
It's The Thought That Counts?
It started out as a really nice gift involving confetti and a cute stuffed animal, but this man didn't anticipate that the balloon would deflate and leave the bear looking like he had been filled with air.
Please Don't Share This Love
This promotion really makes us wonder about the people sitting in a boardroom who came up with this idea and thought "that's a great Valentine's Day slogan" because they're definitely not okay.
Some Things Are Better Left Untouched
Sometimes stores take it a step too far when trying to come up with festive Valentine's promotions and then we end up with raw beef in the shape of hearts, which is a product no one asked for and no one needed.
Nothing Says "I Love You" Like Planning Their Funeral!
This is a prime example of a company or product that definitely should not be holiday-themed, no matter what the holiday is. If you truly don't know what to get for Valentine's Day, stick to chocolate, not funeral arrangements.
This Will Not Go Over Well For Any Husband Who Bought This
Just a suggestion, but if you're looking for something to get your partner for Valentine's Day at the last minute, don't get them a package of SlimFast. It'd be better to get them nothing.
How Many Days Though?
This card is basically a catch-all card for anyone at any stage in their relationship. Whether you've loved someone for 2 days or for 200 days, this card applies to yu.
This Stuffed Animal Is Nuts
It seemed like a cute pun in theory, but someone really should've caught this joke before it made it to shelves. Realistically someone did realize what was happening and now they're getting a great laugh at the fact that Walmart is selling these.
While we love heart-shaped chocolate as much as the next product, creating a product that encourages people to actually break the heart seems like a weird metaphor to promote on Valentine's Day...
Are You Calling Me Lazy?
Whether you read this as "i sloth you" or "i death you," this is not a stuffed animal we'd want to receive from our boyfriend on a day where he's supposedly supposed to profess his undying love for us.
Well This Took A Turn
It's fairly common for teachers in school to have Valentine's Day-themed content if the holiday falls on a school day, but this feels like one of those questions that you maybe should've left off the heart background...
Let Your Loved One Know Exactly How You Feel
And people say that real love and chivalry is dead?! After years with someone, you might get sick of the same old card and flowers routine, so you might as well get them something they really like — cake — while letting them know how you feel. Relationships are built on honesty after all.
He Aced This Year's Gift
If you're going to ask your husband to get your flowers and a card for Valentine's Day, you better be specific. Otherwise, you're going to end up with two bags of baking flour and a deck of cards that's missing an Ace.
Aren't They A Little Young For That?
You know that some parent bought Valentine's Day cards for their kid to hand out, saw this one and decided to leave it in for a laugh, which is how one man's 5-year-old son came home with a card that says "let's hook up!"
A Card For Your Kentucky Cousin
Was there really no better slogan for a Valentine's Day card than this? We're going to take a wild guess that any girlfriend who receives this card probably isn't going to be thrilled.
All The Essentials
You never know what kind of surprise your boyfriend has in store for you, so you have to be prepared for any situation. Sure the standard candles or candy is good, but you can never have too much pepper spray, right?
Ladies, sometimes you have to go out and create the future you want for yourself. You have to manifest what you want and don't take no for an answer. Or just pretend this rejection didn't happen.
11 Days Until Impending Doom
This sign was definitely made by someone who doesn't enjoy Valentine's Day, No one who loved love would be able to produce a countdown sign that has such a weird, dark vibe to it.
The Valentine's Day Family Breakup
This dad was done with giving his adult child a Valentine's Day gift so, unfortunately, they're going to have to go presentless from now on, or find a significant other to give them a smashburger gift card.
