15 Valentine's Day Gifts That Tell Your S.O. "It's Over"

Is there really a St. Valentine? Did he want to be remembered by a box of chocolates or a stuffed teddy bear? We may never know, but one thing is for certain: A lot of people dread Valentine's Day.

Sure, it can be all hugs and laughter one minute, but the pressure's on to gift your S.O. that special something they didn't tell you they wanted, but you figured it out anyway because you're literally the best partner ever. Unless you're not.

For those of us on the other end of the love spectrum, may we present 15 of the worst Valentine's gift ideas maybe ever. These presents will tell your special someone that you've thrown in the towel and couldn't care less. Good riddance!
