Geek Gift Guide (Valentine’s Edition)


Valentine’s Day is only a couple weeks away, and I, for one, am excited. January and February are my least favorite months, personally, so I’m always happy to have a holiday to bring a little variety to the monotony of snow and freezing cold temperatures. A common Valentine’s complaint I hear, however, is how it’s such a generic holiday that encourages a cookie-cutter version of what love or romance looks like. I’m all for personalization and Thad and I are both kinda huge nerds, so I’ve been browsing geek-appropriate gifts that work for the holiday and thought I’d share some of my favorites here with you. I’ll group them by gender for simplicity’s sake, but obviously pick whatever your sweetheart/friend/or you would like best!
