In our house, every holiday is a geeky holiday! Our Chrismukkah tree has Star Wars and Doctor Who ornaments and our Easter will be spent at WonderCon. And Valentine’s Day is no exception. We’ve spent the last couple of V-Day’s exchanging geeky presents or going on geeky dates. Whether you’ll be spending Feb. 14 with your sweetheart or your friends, here are 10 ideas for celebrating a very geeky Valentine’s Day!
Do Some Star Gazing. If you’re lucky enough to live in a place where you’re able to see stars at night (damn LA light pollution!), get a blanket and a bottle of wine or a pot of tea and check out some constellations. In case you’re not a trained astronomer, you can use this glow-in-the-dark constellation guide to share in some geeky gazing.
Give the Gift of a Cat Bouquet. What cat lover wouldn’t want a bouquet of adorable plush cats?! It’s not the typical Valentine’s Day gift, but that’s what makes it so special. For the record, Peter HATES this thing, so I’ll live vicariously through anyone who gets it!
Forever Flowers: 8-Bit Flower Bouquet. If flowers are more your style get this awesome 8-Bit Flower Bouquet from Think Geek. They’re geeky, they’re cool and they’ll last forever!
Host a Fandom Dinner. If you’d prefer a night in, pick up a fandom themed cookbook, like these Game of Thrones or Doctor Who ones, and create some dishes and drinks inspired by your favorite shows and movies. Cooking is always a cute couples activity and if you’re celebrating with friends, everyone can bring something to share. After the meal is made, kick back and enjoy your favorite fandom!
Give/Make a Geeky Valentine’s Card. Etsy is a gold mine of adorable geeky cards for any occasion, including Valentine’s Day! Etsy sellerDarkroomandDearly has a lot of lovely and geeky Valentine’s Day cards, including this Harry Potter one.
Make a Mix tape. Remember mix tapes? Remember how much it meant to get one? Unfortunately, tape decks are hard to find these days so create a custom playlist for your sweetie or friends with a mix tape USB memory stick. It holds more than 900 hours of data and you can personalize the cardboard case with the songs you picked out.
