Forget treating a loved one to an adorable virus or two—get them a spleen, or mammary gland to cuddle instead! Erm, what?
Plushie company I Heart Guts produces a variety of body parts as cuddly toys, in the hope of providing a tongue-in-cheek way of cheering up someone with an issue from a broken heart to toothache. Body parts can be pretty ugly or weird-looking, so I Heart Guts makes sure to add color and smiley faces to each. D'aww.
My favorite has to be the literal take on a "heart of gold." Be warned, though: These plushies are not for the squeamish or those bothered by bad puns and double entendres. Get your faves for $24.
