A Little Prickly V-Day Present

When you're in a relationship on Valentine's Day, you know that if you buy either flowers or candy, you're pretty much off the hook. But what about single dwellers? How about giving a single friend a V-Day nod?

Take this prickly little cactus, for instance. It looks real, but it's actually knit from woolly yarn. The benefit to this is that you can give it to any black thumb and it will most likely survive. It also won't wilt and croak in a week like flowers do, or just add to the fat like candy might. Plus, this gift is funny. Especially for a single woman. Do I need to spell it out for you?

Each one of these pseudo desert dwellers is handmade and pretty inexpensive (the one pictured is just ten bucks). Find an assortment of crocheted cacti at Etsy.
