Geek Valentines: Gifts For Him

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:

Valentines: Romantic Dinner Decor

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.

Today I’m showcasing some adorable serveware that would make a surprise in bed even more special.
