Kisses, and especially first ones, are not always successful.

Top ten crisis Valentine’s presents

1. An empty box of matches. Why empty? Because your flame for your beloved will never stop burning.

2. An old spoon―to signify that your loved one feeds your desires.

3. A pen that doesn’t work―because no written words can truly express your love.

4. A non-biodegradable plastic bag―to illustrate that your love will last forever.
