Illinois’ Ultimate Anti-Valentine’s Day Gift Is Back
If Valentine's Day coming up soon has you down because you've been scorned by love, Brookfield Zoo has the perfect anti-gift for your ex-partner.
Residents' Feelings About Valentine's Day In Illinois
I think Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that you either love or hate, there's no in-between. I believe, for the most part, those feelings are generated by your relationship status. If you have a significant other, then it's a wonderful day.
In the case of being single, especially soon after a breakup, you're not going to be a big fan of it. The whole love thing is just going to put you in a bad mood. Of course, decorations, merchandise, gifts, and happy couples are everywhere you look. It's enough to make you sick.
The Difficulties Of Picking Up The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift
Even if you're in a good relationship, there is the pressure of picking out the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your significant other. I always suggest keeping it simple and special. The thought is more important than the cost.
Getting Your Ex A Valentine's Day Gift
It could be very tempting to get your ex a gift for Valentine's Day, especially if the breakup was recent. I know, you think you could win them back. Do yourself a big favor and just say no. It's not worth it. I do have a much better idea.
Illinois' Perfect Anti Valentine's Day Gift For Your Ex
If you want to help yourself feel a little better on the holiday of love, I suggest an anti-Valentine's Day gift for your ex. I look forward to reading about it every year. Plus, it's funny and creative. I wouldn't consider it mean-spirited either. Okay, maybe just a little.
Name A Cockroach After Your Ex For Valentine's Day
It's a safe bet to say that most people don't like cockroaches. Let's be honest they are gross bugs and it's never a good thing if you find them in your home or work. Each Valentine's Day, Brookfield Zoo allows you to name a cockroach after your ex. I would consider that the ultimate anti-Valentine's Day gift. Trust me, your former partner will hate it.
In 2024, Brookfield Zoo will once again offer the chance to name a cockroach in honor of that un-special (or special) someone in your life.
That's right, you can name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after your ex (or anyone!) for Valentine's Day with a $15 donation that supports the zoo.
