Even when I was single, I loved Valentine’s Day. I used it as an excuse to go out to dinner with friends and buy myself something nice (after all, I was saving money not being in a relationship– so I figured I deserved it!). So whether you’re looking for a gift for a special someone, or you’re just looking to get gift for yourself (which I highly recommend), here are some geeky Valentine’s gift ideas, for men and women, the committed and single alike.
1. Mixed Tape USB
As a throwback to the good ol’ days when you’d carefully construct a playlist to make your crush swoon, this mixed tape USB exudes thoughtfulness. Find a mixed tape USB here.
2. BoldLoft Couples Pillow Cases
This spidey pillowcase set is my favorite, but BoldLoft has all kinds of adorable illustrations for pillow cases, mugs, drinking glasses, and more. Get lost exploring their designs here.
3. Geeky Accessories
For the gamer girl, this lovely companion cube necklace has some gorgeous detail. Similar necklaces don’t compare. Find a companion cube necklace here.
This necklace is similar to one I own and wear all the time– it goes with anything from t-shirts to little black dresses. Snag a steampunk robot necklace here.
Cuff links may be something you don’t often wear, but if I were a guy who owned Death Star cuff links, I would find an occasion to use them. Plus, sometimes Valentine’s day is about luxuries that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself. Get in on some Death Star cuff links here.
4. Space Invaders Messenger Bag
I’m not gonna lie, this is something I would buy for myself. This messenger bag is great for a male or female significant other, or a little something for yourself! Get a Space Invaders messenger bag here.
5. Action Figures
When Jeff and I first started dating, one of the first gifts I got him was a Batman and Batgirl vinyl figures that now sit on our bookshelves. Even though Batgirl and Batman aren’t a couple, I love the idea of giving pop culture action figure couples as a Valentine’s gift. Get Jack Skellington and Sally action figures here.
Or snag a Han and Leia action figure set here.
