These Are the Worst Valentine's Day Gifts People Have Ever Received

Valentine's Day can be a tricky holiday to shop for, but some people mess it up on a whole new level. Reddit just started a new thread with the question, "What's the worst possible gift for your significant other on Valentine's Day?" The answers range from hilarious to cringeworthy. Check out some of the stand-out answers. These gifts are pretty horrid.

Steamer Mop

"When asked what my SO wanted one year, she said she wanted a H2O steamer mop. Cost me about £100 and she got flowers, chocolates and a date night on top of it. But of course, whenever telling the story, it has become the time I got her a mop for Valentine's Day."

Failed Flowers

"Once I ordered my girlfriend flowers that didn't arrive (or were stolen from the porch), so I gave her the delivery confirmation instead. It was not as funny as I thought it would be."

Pencil Sharpener

"My dad bought my mom a pencil sharpener one year for Valentine's Day. It was the only gift he ever bought her on that day.My sister and I pestered him relentlessly saying it was weird he had never bought her a Valentine's Day gift, so he listened for what she wanted. She had been complaining that their pencil sharpener was junk, so he went out and bought this really nice electric one (this was in the late 80s, so actually a pricey gift). My mom was SO mad and so he never bought her another Valentine's Day gift again."

"My girlfriend gave me a pack of cigarettes because I was trying to quit smoking, and she thought it would help me relax."

Wrong Gift

"Girl I started dating a couple of months before Valentine's Day just got out of a long term relationship with her high school sweetheart. I didn't know she was still in contact with him when we were dating. She handed me a cute little bag with candy and a card. As I opened the card and read her pouring out her soul to her ex boyfriend about how much she still thinks about him and loves him. Evidently she made two gift bags. One for me and one for the ex and mixed them up. Thanks for the gold stranger."
