Six Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the anti-lovey dovey


At a time when lovey-dovey declarations are on high volume, there are still gifts that cut through the amorous noise and convey that you’re out to poke fun at the dating game. Wearing your heart on your sleeve – or feet, in this case – is easy with Stance’s cheeky candy heart socks that brandish sassy sentiments like “Bite Me” and “As If.” For those with emotional baggage, Stay Home Club’s sleepover bag is an ideal way to warn potential partners of your predilection for moodiness. Prefer to keep your inner turmoil under wraps? Jonathan Adler’s quirky jar stores cookies and, of course, those things better left unmentioned. Or get straight to the point with Said The King’s impolite pillow cases. No doubt your apathy for affection will be loud and clear.
