The clichéd gifts for Valentine's Day are always flowers and chocolates, but things have been changing in this holiday business for a while now (Galentine's Day, for example).
This year, enter Racket—a grassroots organization aimed at de-shaming menstruation and providing hygiene products to women in need, have written, produced, and launched a pair of parody videos that you've got to check out. And they've got a design trick up their sleeves.
The "bouquets" are artfully constructed from tampons and pads—not botanicals.
Arguing that the clichéd gifts of flowers and chocolates may not cut it anymore, Racket wants you to forward one of these videos to the menstruators in your life. And they are so funny and entertaining that you may just want to do that.
And the trick? The "bouquets" are artfully constructed from tampons and pads—not botanicals.
The first video features Phillipa Soo (from Hamilton!) and Celia Keenan-Bolger receiving customized bouquets specific to their preferences. The second features Margo Seibert (Rocky!) and Drew Gehling as he desperately tries to #knowtheflow of his girlfriend and gift her something special.
Check them out, please forward the links to the menstruators in your life, and learn about the design backstory here.
