10 Geeky Valentine’s Day Ideas

If you’ve ever wondered how you could be more unique and make this Valentine’s Day more memorable for that special geek, you found the right list. A few years ago, I gave you 5 Geeky Ways to Say “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day, but this time, let the gift speak for you. Below are my 2011 geeky gift ideas for Valentine’s day.

Beating Heart Pillow

Beating Heart Pillow
Is your CoderGeek all wound up at the end of the day after trying to make a web site look the same across 8 variations of web browsers? If so, a plush heartbeat pillow will help them relax with its rhythmic vibration. It’s designed to do that, but the unadvertised bonus, feature is that it will remind them of you every time they embrace it.

Cost: $39.99

Mix Drive

Quirky SplitStick
Mix tapes are so 80’s and mix CDs are so 90’s. It’s 2011 and these days, more and more people are putting their mixes of music on flash drives. Bring the romantic thought and planning of the old-fashioned mix tape into 2011 with a mix drive by putting your mix of music on a flash drive. Most common flash drives hold more music than a CD and it’s easier to carry around with you. If your geek works in an office, I suggest grabbing them a Split Stick. It’s two flash drives in one, so your geek can keep that music mix on one side and use the other to move files from home to work and back.

Cost: $24.99

Kiss My Valentineâ„¢ iPhone App

Kiss My Valentine's iPhone App
Send digital kisses, hugs, and wishes from the App, to be delivered to those in the App user’s contact book. Example of text sent is:
“You’ve received a text kiss((kiss)) & hug((hug))! Happy Valentine’s Day! ….” It’s another geeky way to show some love and if you’re on Android, it’s free, so you can just add this to your other Valentine’s day plans. (Search for it in the Android Marketplace or iPhone App Store)

Cost: Kiss My Valentineâ„¢ is free of charge for Valentine’s Day from the Android Marketplace (if you download before Valentine’s Day, it will not expire), or can be purchased thereafter for $4.95 for full lifetime coverage.

“I Love My Geek” Shirt

I Love My Geek shirt
This I Love My Geek shirt is made for men and women (not just the baby doll tee I’m linking to), but this is one you buy for yourself to wear. Every time my wife wears her shirt that bears this phrase, I grin and feel proud to be a geek.

Cost: $18.99

Superhero Stamp Cuff Links

Superhero Cuff Links
When I came across these cuff links for comic geeks, I knew they just had to be added to the list. Choose between Superman and Batman and send your geek into their meetings in style.

Cost: $89.95

Scent Drive

Scent Drive
I think I should let the seriously unique Scent Drive speak for itself…

From causal Fashion Drive to Smart Elegance, our one-of-a-kind Scent DriveTM diffuses fragrance when in use. Scent DriveTM also comes in a Luxury line, crystals by Swarovski, and other exotic materials.

Many of the designs are out of stock, so if you want one, you should hurry.

Cost: $29 – $60

8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt

Life Meter Shirt
ThinkGeek’s gamer shirt with an romantic twist is animated, fun, and definitely geeky. Your GamerGeek will appreciate the Life level the hearts represent, your TechGeek will love that the shirts interact by proximity, and your RomantiGeek will enjoy his or her hearts getting filled up when you are near with the same shirt.

Cost: $17.99 – $24.99

Custom Mouse Pad Or Coffee Mug

zazzle
Get creative! Armed with your favorite couples photo, a phrase that means a lot to you both, or an image of anything that you know will brighten their day, head to Zazzle or Cafe Press and create a custom coffee mug or mouse pad. Heck, put that design on just about anything they’ll use regularly for a simple but thoughtful gift that will last.

Cost: Varies

Fyre BoXXX – Like Netflix For Adults

Fyre TV
Here’s a gift you can both enjoy for a little extra kick on those intimate nights. The FyreTV: Fyre BoXXX is an adult entertainment portal that delivers a multitude of personal movie and scene options to enjoy in the comfort of your home. It’s like Netflix for adult entertainment.

Put Down The Computer

Finally, there’s the gift that can’t be bought. If you are the geek and you’re like me, you’re on the computer all the time. Make a commitment for just one day to stay off the computer, stop checking your phone, avoid gaming, and whatever else you need to do in order to devote all your attention on Valentine’s Day to the person you love. If your love is the geek, find fun ways to get them away from the computer for a day for some relaxing down time.

Cost: Depends on you

  1. Love the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt that lights up when you get close to each other. I agree with getting off the computer to spend time with your loved one, especially for Valentines Day. Although this can be hard for computer geeks like me too. Thanks for the list Joe.
