For the most part, unless you are in a relationship, you’ve been dreading the looming February 14th date. But there is light at the end of that tunnel. A light in the form of the Bronx Zoo’s Valentine’s Day gift you can purchase for your least favorite ex! Ordinarily, we would advise against retaining anger over a previous relationship, so this is a perfect release. Instead of glitter bombing them, you can name a cockroach in their honor.

All things considered, this is a pretty harmless way of getting rid of frustration. You don’t even need to sell something of yours online in order to feel catharsis. Instead, you’ll enjoy seeing an ex’s name in print after purchasing a certificate. Whether you end up presenting them with it is a whole other story.

The Bronx Zoo’s Valentine’s Day gift is a yearly tradition. According to their Instagram:

Just $10 and you have your very own ex roach?! Seems like a friggin steal. Furthermore, for a few extra bucks, you can even get a plush toy to commemorate the event. And if you really need to get something off your chest, $50 will get you a plush, a box of chocolates, and even a printed certificate with the cockroach’s name. That way, you will always remember spending that much money on hating someone.

In conclusion, don’t let this holiday remind you of the bad times. Instead, let it become a new tradition you can laugh over for years to come. Because an ex is in your past, and this newly named cockroach is your future.
