Valentine’s Day is sometimes tough for the male humans out there carrying a bleeding heart because hunting down the perfect gift for that spooky someone can be a nightmare. You want to get her something that says “be mine”… or “please don’t give me the hose again.” Unfortunately, you won’t find anything that makes that kind of statement in the mall or at the Hallmark store, so you have to get creative.
But you can give your brains a rest as I have already studied the dark art of shopping for this celebration of undying love. Follow this simple gift guide to show appreciation for your macabre mistress…
Horror-Themed Candles and Body Scrubs by Scented Screams

Waxwork extraordinaire Kristen Hynes offers several macabre candles made from soy-based wax mixed with fragrant oils to add to your home’s killer ambiance.

Charm your creepy cutie with that old Black Magic blending scents of fresh fruit and cinnamon. Or give her something to really scream about by adding the This House is Clean all-natural body scrub to your candle purchase.
