8 Geeky Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we all know how difficult it can be to pick out the perfect gift for that special someone. Chocolate and flowers can become quite bland, especially since they’re the kinds of presents that don’t last. The best gifts are ones that evoke some kind of meaning and serve as daily reminders of your love. We here at Space have got you covered on what type of gifts you can buy to win a geek’s heart.
A perfect gift for coffee and tea lovers alike, the pixelated heart on the mug revives itself when a hot beverage is poured into it. This mug is modelled after hearts that are often used as symbols to measure a player’s health meter in video games. Thus, this gift can serve as a cute way to remind your partner that you are always there to care for them when their health is low.
Who needs a bouquet of flowers when you can get a bouquet of Star Wars characters! Flowers wilt and end up in the garbage after a few days but this bouquet will serve as a permanent reminder of your love. The little plush characters that come with it are incredibly cute and are the perfect room accessory for any hardcore Star Wars fan.
Nintendo 3DS owners will be thrilled with this thoughtful (and practical!) gift. Etsy shop owner Derilyn Atkinson is an extremely skilled artist and craftswoman. She handcrafts cases with anything from illustrations of your favourite Nintendo characters to sweet handwritten messages. The case also comes with a shoulder strap, which means your significant other will be able to take their treasured 3DS anywhere they want.
WeLoveFine is an online store that sells items “for fans designed by fans.” They have everything from trendy cosplay-inspired clothing to collectible vinyl figures. Some fandoms they include are: Star Wars, Doctor Who, World of Warcraft, Marvel and many more. I personally love their Portal Companion Cube sweater and their Rey Hoodie Dress.
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but there’s nothing cooler than rocking a ring or necklace that was also worn by the wise elves of Middle-earth. Etsy store “Papillon9” sells enchanting glow-in-the-dark jewelry that could very well be forged by Celebrimbor himself. Some pieces included in the shop are Arwen’s Evenstar necklace and Galadriel’s “Nenya” ring. These treasures will bring your loved one light even in the midst of total darkness!
If you’re completely out of ideas, commission an art piece of you and your sweetheart! This is an incredibly thoughtful way to showcase your love. Sketchmob is an online hub of artists who offer the service of turning your photographs into vivid illustrations. You can commission an artist to turn your loved one into anything, from their beloved superhero to an adorable anime-styled chibi.
You can’t go wrong with buying an adorable onesie that your loved one can wear for those cozy movie dates at home. There’s a variety of cute designs with anything from a traditional red fox to a majestic blue unicorn. What’s more, Kigurumi’s are inspired by anime creatures, which makes them even more ridiculously cute.
Demonstrate your love by creating a bear that reflects your significant other’s personality and charm. Build-a-Bear has recently added limited edition Star Wars themed bears and other items that are bound to win the heart of any fan of the epic space franchise. On top of that, they also carry a new Pikachu bear as well as various superhero accessories that will appeal to comic book lovers.
