Sure, Valentine’s Day is pure dorkiness, but admit it, you do feel warm and fuzzy reminding your S.O of how wonderful they are. Here are a few horror gift ideas to make him or her shriek with delight and be reminded of how great you are:
Classic Dinner and a Movie
Keep the night simple, with a pair of candles, your favorite takeout, and a flick about complicated relationships (unlike your lovey-dovey partnership). You could muse on the Firefly family’s dynamics in The House of 1,000 Corpses/The Devil’s Rejects, or how disappointing Prom Night was for Jaime Lee Curtis. Alternatively, revisit the love and killer soundtrack of The Crow, or the retro stylings of Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, Brinke Stevens and Linnea Quigley. Of course, you can never go wrong with My Bloody Valentine if you’re more of a traditionalist about the spirit of the day.
Say it with a Huggable Doll
Think outside of the box, and wrap up an adorable plush Ash, instead of the typical monkey, pup, or bear! Or pair up Puppet Master snugglies Blade and Torch, with those thorned flowers. Forevermore Dolls are also lovely for this occasion – how can you resist VooDoo’s cutesy face or Skull’s unforgettable smile? For a stronger statement of your love, consider power couple Chucky and Tiffany, who offer their own nuggets of wisdom via buttons on their backs.
Dress up Chocolates with Ornaments
We know, chocolate or some other kind of confectionery is on the list. Take it up a notch, though, by attaching a Horrornament to the packaging, which makes for neat spooky décor all year round. You can hang the darling little vampire bat from a window latch, or a Kane Hodder casket from a tote bag. If your horror geek is a fan of Bloody Mary F/X makeup, give him or her a zombie from the Bobbie Weiner series. Also, take note that the Bill Moseley spider is partly pink, so it’s both creepy and perfectly Valentiney!
Perk up Home Entertaining
Sometimes the best horror gift ideas are the little things. Set the mood with a Jason mask bottle opener and beverage of choice, and a Puppet Master Blade lighter to go with some incense. Or summon the fun of the date with odes to the priceless Tommy Chong film, Evil Bong: a ceramic ashtray plus a metal herb grinder livens up every table!
