Valentine’s Day is approaching swiftly, and more and more couples are getting ready to spend the most romantic day of the year together. From Trekkies to Jedis, there are always cute, quirky, and most of all, thoughtful gifts for even the biggest of geeks. If you’re running low on inspiration, here’s a guide to a few gifts that are sure to put a smile on someone’s face.
It’s no surprise that Han Solo and Princess Leia are (or rather, were) one of the greatest couples in sci-fi history. That being said, surprise your galactic princess or space scoundrel with this “I Love You” and “I Know” necklace set.
Let your partner know that they are your superhero with this sleek, sophisticated Captain America watch. Its design is discreet enough to be worn for just about any occasion, especially a romantic Valentine’s Day date.
For the TV Devotees:
Is your partner the Captain Kirk of the relationship? Turn your home into the Enterprise for Valentine’s Day, and let your love know how much you adore them with a stellar robe like this.
If you’re like the rest of America, you’re probably addicted to coffee. Wake up with a cup of Joe, even better if that’s your partner’s name, and enjoy your morning pick-me-up with this Legend of Zelda inspired mug.
Have a princess of your own? Show them you’re willing to travel worlds in order to prove your love with this 8-bit heart charm. As the perfect balance between geek and chic, this gift won’t disappoint.
Alternatively, if you’re on a time crunch, it might be a good idea to head to a walk-in store in order to snag a similar, yet equally great gift. Some stores that carry gifts like those above include Barnes and Noble, Best Buy, F.Y.E., Movie Stop, and specific to Central Florida, the brand new ThinkGeek store at Florida Mall. Another option would be your local comic book store, or even a retailer like Target, which often carries popular merchandise for franchises like both Star Wars and Marvel.
Don’t let Valentine’s Day be boring, and treat your valentine to a geeky gift! After all, it’s the thought that counts. No matter what you get for your special someone, be it big or small, the gesture and consideration towards their interests is bound to make Valentine’s Day special.
