It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and I was compelled to put another alternative gift list together for those of us looking for something that hasn’t yet been beaten to death by Hallmark. So, here are a few gift choices for the quirkier of recipients, from the organ lover to the fungusphile.
Heart of Gold Metallic Plush ($39). Come correct with this plush heart, complete with razzle-dazzle ventricles. Via the adorably named website IHeartGuts.com.
Tattoo Notebook ($13). This reminds me of adult coloring books with a twist. Sketch out planned or fantasized ink in this body part-filled notebook. Found at suckUK.
Star Wars as told in the style of Shakespeare. Whether ’tis nobler to turn to the Dark Side…Found at Firebox ($18).
Tabasco Chocolate ($8) I love this one because it’s an inexpensive foodie gift with a collectible tin – always feels more substantial to give than a cardboard box of candy. There are even suggested recipes to try with this kind of hot chocolate, such as chili chocolate beef. Found at Firebox.
Whether you call it a cat cave, hole, bed, house, or vessel — and the Etsy seller who makes these is ok with all of those — this handmade wool kitty nook is also a nice little home decor item. $53; found at nerdwallet.
