Valentine's Gifts For The Geeks


Love comes in many forms, and not everybody wants chocolates, mundane jewellery, silly vouchers or overly expensive bunches of red roses on the big, sexy V-Day. For those of you out of touch, I'm talking about St.Valentine's Day. Yes, the day us singletons absolutely despise with a passion. It's the overly commercialised day that's so disgusting to anyone who isn't getting any. I mean, who's responsible for twisting the minds of other humans and making them believe they only have one day to prove their ever-lasting love for the reserved names in their lives? Fuck you Hallmark.

Anyway, less about how I feel and more about how I can help you helpless love birds to woo your better geeky half to ensure you get sexual and emotional success next week. Here are 14 (see what I did there?) epic Valentine's gifts:
