Valentine's Gifts Your Loved Ones Will Never Forget

February 14 is the day of love. It's also the one day of the year when you are allowed to enjoy candy without concern for calories or fat grams. From cute candy hearts etched with terms of endearment to boxes of gourmet chocolates, it's a tradition to give someone special a sweet treat for Valentine's Day.

The problem is that most of these gifts are boring and outdated. If you're tired of giving the same presents year after year, it's time to step into modern times and give your loved one a gift to remember. This is best accomplished by offering chocolate-covered bugs instead of yet another red heart filled with the typical chocolates.

While we work hard to keep bugs from infesting your home every year, there is no denying that bugs have nutritional benefits. If you were stranded in the wilderness, you would actively hunt worms and a variety of bugs to nourish your body and stay alive. Valentine's Day isn't a survival scenario, but it is a chance for adventure with someone you love.

Chocolate-covered bugs have increased in popularity over the past five years, so it isn't difficult to find gift boxes and samplers perfectly suited for Valentine's Day. Some of the bugs most commonly found drenched in sweet chocolate are as follows:

  • Crickets
  • Ants
  • Scorpions
  • Silkworms
  • Beetle larva

In addition to chocolate-covered bugs, you can find some fun bug candies on the market. How about licking a scorpion lollipop or sharing apple-flavored candy seasoned with ants? There is a bug-licious gift out there for everyone on your Valentine's list, including your children.
