Ditch That Plush Toy, Check Out These Ideas For Valentine's Day Instead

Ah yes, it’s Valentine’s Day again. Or as the singles like to call it: the overly nauseatingly sweet day where couples become insufferable on social media. No? Okay, just me then.

It’s still not too late if you haven’t bought a rad gift for your partner. That’s why here at Vulcan Post, we’ve compiled a list for the clueless. Fingers crossed it’ll give you some ideas and that your gift won’t end up on this embarrassing page.

With that point in mind, don’t be afraid of flaunting your appreciation for your pals! What better way to express your thanks and solidify your friendship than a beautiful greeting card designed by local brand The Paper Bunny?

A single card costs $5.90, while a boxed set of 8 costs $32.90. Get your pretty on here. I guarantee it’ll leave your giftee(s) oohing and aahing.

If you plan on proposing to your partner on this special day (and chances are, you won’t be the only one), look no further. Maybe you can’t afford a trip to Paris and propose to your love in front of the Eiffel Tower. No problemo, because IM-Perfection can bring the iconic landmark to you.

Other creative gigantic props include a wishing well and pumpkin carriage — and they say fairytales don’t exist. Drop them a note on their contact page for their rates.

Two Three Bricks

Is your significant other into quirky things? If so, you’re in luck. This require minimal effort on your part, since you only have to send a photo of your Valentine and let Two Three Bricks do the grunt work. You can take it to the next level by including the type of props, costumes and background you want.

Hop on over here to order a personalised LEGO print. Tip: the process will take 2 weeks and will be delivered via email. Prices start from $5.
