5 Geeky Valentine’s Day gifts for her

Heart plushie from I Heart Guts

1. Humongous Heart Plush [$18]

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.

2. Circuit Board Heart Necklace [$40] & 3. Circuit Board Heart Earrings [$50]

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.

4. Dopamine Necklace [$80]

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.

5. Cat 5 Earrings [$12.50]

Handmade in Chicago, old school networking cable becomes colorful earrings. They’re packaged in a real petri dish used for scientific experiments, because, science.
