For anyone unwilling to send cutesy teddy bears and flowers for ethical reasons, here are a few other ideas.
HorrorGreetings.com have a selection of different beasties to choose from on their website, just ignore the epilepsy inducing advert on the homepage if you can.
Feast your eyes on these ‘weird vintage valentine cards,’ which are quite disturbing trust me. Perhaps you can email one to your special somebody (or to someone you’re trying to get rid of).
Of course what you really need are anatomical Love Heart sweets. This tutorial from fascinating site evilcakehead shows you how to make the delightful delicacies right here, and don;t forget to check out their other treats (one such example also fit for Valentine’s Day are these anatomically correct, er, lady part cupcakes).

Well, there we are. Have a merry Christmas and remember, Santa’s watching every move you make…
