With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it can be difficult to think of the perfect gift to convey to your other half just how much you love them
Flowers and chocolates are nice, but a little bit cliche. Then there are the raunchier gift choices such as squirty cream (thanks for the suggestion Tesco) and lacy lingerie.
But what about for those whose tastes are a little bit, ahem, niche?
Luckily for you, the folks at MysteryPotato have brainstormed long and hard to devise the ultimate in Valentine’s Day giftware.
They want you to send your lover a potato this Valentine’s Day, complete with a personalised message written in marker pen – because “nothing says ‘I love you’ like a potato”.
Why would someone even do this, you ask?
Well, as the website puts it: “Potatoes are simple and they bring joy and confusion like you would not believe.
“In these days of email, tweets, snapchat, and Facebook messenger sending someone something in the mail is starting to have a renewed power and impact.”
Perusers on the site can choose from baby potatoes, red potatoes and sweet potatoes to send their anonymous message of adoration.
For those seriously considering sending their other half a potato, the company is based in America which means shipping costs will probably be really high if you live in the UK.
But if you’re feeling really flush and you really want to send that potato, then you can do so here.
