Valentine’s Gifts For Geeks [Feature]

Valentine’s Day is when we all show our special someones how much we love them—and this usually involves a gift or two. The standard dozen roses and box of chocolate works, but how about something a little nerdier to show how much you care? We’ve gathered the most lovingly nerdy gifts on the internet in this handy guide, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Flowers

Plush Unicorn Bouquet
You know those overpriced roses will be dead within a week, but these little guys will live forever! This bouquet features 11 plush unicorns that can be popped off their stems and posed around your desk. Product Page ($49.99)


Pokéball Duct Tape Roses
You may never catch ‘em all, but you can definitely catch her heart with these Pokéball duct tape roses. They’re available individually or in bouquets. Product Page ($8-$45)


Comic Book Origami Flowers
These origami flowers will be a constant reminder of your love for each other and for superheros. They’re custom made so you can choose a favorite comic or even have them made with the pages of a favorite novel. Product Page ($26)


GLaDOS Hair Flower
Sure, she can be difficult, but you just know that deep inside GLaDOS loves you and is only trying to kill you for your own good. This hair flower is the perfect way to show your gamer girl that you love her, and it even lights up with a red LED center. Product Page ($36)


Bacon Roses
They say that gifts you make are more precious than those you buy, so this would have to be the most precious bunch of roses you could possibly give, ever. They’re made of bacon. I think I can stop right here because the awesome is obvious. Just don’t eat them on the way to your love’s house because she will not appreciate a bunch of green stems. (via instructables)

Cologne and Perfume


Avengers Cologne
Now your man can smell like the superhero you know he is with this Avengers cologne set. The set includes four 60ml glass bottles that evoke Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor. Not guaranteed to impart actual superpowers. Product Page ($59.99)


Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs Perfume Oils
Guys, you can completely avoid a trip to that perfume counter at the mall where a random model tries to spritz you. Order these most nerdy of perfume oils online and have them delivered right to your door instead. Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs has dozens of scent lines to choose from like Lovecraft, Dragons, RPG and Love. All of them will be sure to have your sweet smelling sweeter than ever. Product Page ($17.50)

Soap


Heart Emoticon Soap
You end every text and email with that famous less-than-three so a soap with your favorite emoticon is the perfect gift. It’s made from 100% natural and vegan friendly ingredients in either pink or red and smells like sweet brown sugar. No, you cannot eat the brown sugar soap no matter how yummy it smells. Product Page ($6)


Dragon’s Blood Heart Soap
I suppose only Daenerys could tell us for sure what dragon’s blood smells like, but I’m betting this combination of amber, incense, Madagascar vanilla and patchouli is pretty close. This organic hemp soap is perfect for keeping your love’s skin silky smooth through the cold, dry winter. Product Page ($4.99)

Chocolate and Treats


The Cookie Bra
Here’s another one that you can actually make for the love of your life. It’s a cookie bra made from an actual mold of your chest. You create the mold, bake the cookies and then decorate the finished product with icing to turn it into your favorite lace unmentionable. (via instuctables)


Chocolate Bacon Batman Bites
The gift of chocolate is much sweeter when it’s shaped like the Bat Signal. These little chocolates look cute and they’re filled with bits of bacon and peanuts. I’ll take a box of these over the standard fare any day! Product Page ($1.50)


Chocolate Dice
If your plans for the evening include a romantic game of Dungeons and Dragons, then you’ll want to be sure that this set of six dice is part of the munchies. The best part is you can always eat any dice that prove to be cursed and roll nothing but snake eyes. Product Page ($7.99)

Geeky Proposal Ideas


Star Trek Proposal
You could propose in front of your family or your friends, but if you’re really clever you’ll propose where there’s already a professional photographer on-hand, like at a Star Trek photo op with the entire cast of The Next Generation there to witness the moment.

Spider-Man Proposal
This web-slinger has some serious kung-fu moves as he beats up the bad guys, saves the girl and manages to get engaged all in one fell swoop.

Super Mario Proposal
You could also try turning your entire living room into a Super Mario screen complete with sound effects and fireworks. Yeah, he had fireworks, so you better step it up.


LEGO Star Wars Proposal
If remodeling your living room feels like a bit too much, then how about just modeling some Lego bricks? This cute little diorama has a lovelorn Stormtrooper proposing to his favorite Rebel pilot with a beautiful ring. Looks like it might be a little big.


Ood Proposal
Who knew that in addition to be wonderful housekeepers that the Ood were the perfect cosplay idea for a Whovian wedding proposal? Judging by the smile on her face, I think she said yes.
