The Buck presents Valentines day gifts from one of The Buck’s virtual traders, Yellow Octopus, for people who aren’t generically boring Valentines day wannabes…aka you.


Who wants a free Dominos pizza on Valentines day just for being lucky at Tinder?

Or $6 from Google to download some crappy romantic film?

Don’t be like that and don’t reach for that box of chocolates from the petrol station for your beloved.

Yellow Octopus, currently part The Buck, TBS’s virtual marketplace, have you covered.

We handpicked our favourite top 5 gifts that will delight the person you love, even if that person is yourself.

For those single this V day, you can grow your own girlfriend or boyfriend – which is way less creepy than Lars and the Real Girl, and far more economical at under $5!

If your loved one isn’t always responsive to your affections, you can just keep trying to call him or her heaps of times (who doesn’t love multiple calls from someone they are trying to ignore) while keeping your Iphone on a stiletto stand to see if and when they respond. If they never do get back to you screw them, you have an awesome phone stand!

However, if you are loved up and doing gross things like sharing meals with a partner, you can half the kj’s by using this lovers’ tea cup! Or, alternatively (and more likely) if you just can’t decide which tea you want to have so you make two batches without looking so pathetic – this is the best tea cup ever.
