The ASOS gift guide for guys has an awesome selection for fashionable guys. If your valentine is not afraid of wearing a watch with gold rose details or rose gold fox cufflinks, then you should check out the ASOS gift guide for men.
Minted has a great selection of custom classroom valentines cards & stickers. I remember being a little kid and my school had this brilliant idea of selling heart shaped lollipops. If you had a crush you could buy a lollipop that would be delivered to the student of your choice on Valentine’s Day. However, these adorable lollipops were not distributed to every kid. Let me tell you, it was heart breaking to be a third grader hoping you to get a heart lollipop and realizing – alas, you were not another third grader’s valentine. Wow, heartbreak starts so early. I mean, couldn’t we wait until middle school to learn the rejection lesson? I like it how these days everyone gets some love and kids take a treat or card for every classmate. Every third grader gets to feel special and no one is left out.

Regardless of her geekyness levels, she will be excited to receive any of the goodies below for Valentine’s Day. Seriously, who wouldn’t appreciate a bouquet of plush kittens?

It’s a kitschy, stylish bag that will level up your already epic style.
I love shopping for my fellow geeks. It’s so easy. Our thematic passion really simplifies finding the right gift for us. For example, as I have said before, I am a huge fan of Pusheen the Cat. So if I am gifted any pushed related items I will be as happy and content as a Pusheen that has recently eaten some pie and taken a nap. So if your valentine is a geek you are in luck! Focus on their fandoms and get something that is related. Below I have some top notch geeky gifts to get you started:

So I went a little crazy with this post. I found too many cute ideas and had to include most of them. (Yes, this massive post does not mention everything I stumbled upon during my valentine’s saga. There was more, way more stuff.) So I kept the few items that would make the perfect decoration for Valentines’s Day. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend using ALL of the decorations below. It might look like a cupid went on a decorating rampage in your living room. A few of them will achieve the mood you are going for.
Only the finest beeswax is used to produce these slow-burning candles. They’re made in Illinois by the descendants of a French beekeeper who settled there in 1863. His high standards still prevail. Virtually smoke and drip free, the solid beeswax pillars and tapers feature top-quality, woven wicks that ensure even burning.
That’s interesting, we usually celebrate Valentine’s at breakfast time or dinner time. I understand that we are usually working on Valentine’s Day but a special surprise lunch at a restaurant can also be quite romantic. It would not be fun to go back to work afterwards but then you can continue the celebrations at home after a light dinner :)
