Out of Valentine Gift Ideas? How About a Cockroach?
Just in case you feel like the flowers, cards, and jewelry you bought for the love of your life aren't enough, I've got an idea for a gift that they'll never see coming. No, really (yes, I'm giggling) they'll never see it coming!
On second thought, maybe this is something you want to reserve for the person in your life who's obsessed with bugs because if your significant other isn't into creepy, crawly things, this could end very badly.
There is literally only one person in my life that I think would find this to be an awesome gift, and that's my little sister Beth who has a strange fascination with bugs. She's the only person I've ever known who gets excited to hold and examine and research bugs.
If there's someone in your life who loves bugs as much as my sister does, for a mere $10, the Bronx Zoo will let you name one of their Madagascar hissing cockroaches after your special someone. For an extra $25, the zoo will toss in chocolates or a plush cockroach. Want all three options? That'll set you back 50 bucks.
I swear to you that this is legit. Don't believe me? You can check it out here!
