For most people, Valentine's Day is a day for lovers to express their affection for one another.
To late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, it's just another opportunity to surprise America's wives and girlfriends with terrifying gifts while caught on camera.
In his latest video compilation titled, I Gave My Wife or Girlfriend A Terrible Gift For Valentine's Day, the reactions are if not hilariously entertaining than at least a reminder of what little boys - and apparently men - are made of.

Unsuspecting: A man teased his wife about going all out for her this year before handing her a Tiffany's box containing a gecko inside instead
Not amused: The man's wife drops the box to the ground screaming as her husband records the moment chuckling
'This is a box that I bought our wedding ring in,' a man says while showing a small Tiffany's box placed on his kitchen counter.
'My wife hates lizards,' he says while lifting the lid to reveal a gecko inside.
Cornered on camera, the unsuspecting woman expresses mixed disbelief and hope on what her husband's handing her.
'I splurged!' he enthusiastically tells her before she opens it on camera and delivers a loud, high-pitched shriek while jumping away and dropping the box to the floor.
Upping the ante, in another horrifying clip a woman is seen relaxing in a recliner when handed what appears to be a large heart-shaped box of chocolates.
When she opens it, however, she shocking calmly closes the lid.

Bugs: A woman reacts surprisingly calmly to a heart-shaped box she received containing an assortment of insects inside
Help! She begins to panic when discovering that one fairly large insect had escaped and terrifyingly started climbing up her stomach
'Are you crazy? There's bugs in here,' she replies before spotting a large insect climbing up her chest. 'Ah what's on me? Dennis get it off of me!' she panics to cruel laughter.
In another clip a young girl smiles as she opens a white cardboard box placed before her on the kitchen table.
Once popping open the lid, however, out pop two live mice prompting her to frantically disappear off camera as the mice continue to scale their confines.
