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.

Give a special someone a disease this Valentine’s Day

Candy or plush bears are such predictable Valentine’s Day gift. Imagine the look on your sweetheart’s when they open the box to find–surprise!–you’ve given them gonorrhea. These little guys are giant versions of venereal diseases, and we’ve also got chlamydia, herpes, and syphilis, too.

If your S.O. doesn’t have much of a sense of humor, we’ve also got cute little sperm and egg.

New geek necklace sets and limited edition earrings in time for Valentine’s Day

Green Resistor Necklace and Earring Set
Here is a companion necklace to our popular Green Resistor Triplets Earrings. The necklace features larger versions of the resistors use on the earrings and comes packaged in an anti-static bag with a tamper-proof holographic authenticity seal.

Teal Capacitor Necklace and Earrings Set
Both our Teal Triple Capacitor Necklace and Capacitor Earrings are popular, so we decided to combine them as a set, with just a slight variation on the necklace.

Orange Varistor Earrings
Varistors are like the “surge protectors” in a circuit. We happen to have two pairs of these orange components elegantly made into earrings.

Bridge Rectifier Earrings
We only have one pair of these earrings made from bridge rectifiers and dangly spring rings

. All of these pieces come in silver anti-static bags with a tamper-proof, holographic seal of authenticity. Make someone happy this V-Day!
