Chocolate molecule or neurotransmitter jewelry and green capacitor jewelry to surprise your nerdy girl this Valentine’s Day
Theobromine gets its name from the genus of the cacao tree–theo (“god”) and broma (“food”), meaning “food of the gods.” Any chocolate fan will certainly agree on the choice of name. Available as a sterling silver necklace (shown above, $90) or earrings, ($50).
It’s like those traditional gift stores just want to make everyone fat in February with their chocolate truffles, bags of sugar and fruit dipped in various sweet chemicals. Yes, there’s unconditional love and all that, but once the chocolates are devoured and the flowers start wilting, that’s it. Why not give a gift that lasts and reminds your love of your love? Check out our “5 Geeky Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her” post for some ideas.
There’s a reason this plush guy is one of our most popular Valentine’s Day gifts: you’re literally giving someone your heart! And he’s just adorkably endearing, too at 10″ high–too big to stuff in a purse and not quite big enough to be a pillow.
We also received this email from a customer last year who had a very clever idea:
… thank you for helping me get my gift together for my girlfriend. I wanted to find a stuffed animal to wear the earrings I bought for her and the heart was the perfect thing […] She loved the earrings and it was fun to surprise her at dinner. – John C.
Why didn’t we think of that? Our plush can be jewelry models! We’ll have to arrange a photo shoot, clearly.
And if quirky wordplay isn’t quite your thing, check out the Circuit Board Heart Necklace — a symbolic representation carved out of red circuit board and crafted into a pretty necklace pendant is just the thing to show your love. Might as well snag the matching Circuit Board Heart Earrings, too.
You know what love it? Dopamine. Yep, sorry you can’t blame it on puppies, newborns, or Belgian waffles, it’s a neurotransmitter that goes to work on your brain. Technically it’s a catecholamine neurotransmitter stored in vesicles in axon terminals and released when the neuron is depolarised. It interacts with specific membrane receptors to produce its effects that are terminated by re-uptake into the presynaptic neuron by a dopamine transporter.
Ah, you’re still reading, so you must be absolutely infatuated with dopamine. Let me direct your attention to the matching sterling silver Dopamine Earrings.
Handmade in Chicago, old school networking cable becomes colorful earrings. They’re packaged in a real petri dish used for scientific experiments, because, science.
