Since it’s now February (where did January go?!), that basically means it’s Valentine’s Day! Not my favorite holiday (nor a lot of people’s…) but it’s a great excuse to spend time with loved ones or get yourself a little pick-me-up. Speaking of pick-me-ups, here’s a little list of some fun valentine treats:
Be Mine Card Cheesey, adorable, and to the point. For all the science nerds out there!
Pixel Heart Quilt This quilt is actually handmade by my friend, Tara! This is a large baby quilt, but I can see this being used easily as a lap quilt.
Pixel Washi Tape Use this pixel tape to tape up your valentine’s card – or for general scrapbooking goodness.
Romance Orée Board The ultimate romance for your geeky and gaming partner; you can choose initials to highlighted in red on the keyboard.
8-Bit Flower Bouquet Because real flowers are so boring, right?
Sailor Moon Cosmic Heart Necklace I have a different Sailor Moon necklace from this seller, and can say it makes a great gift.
SO it’s *almost* time for the holidays, but I’m not too late in some last-minute gift ideas for your nerdy friends and family!
Yesterday I went to the Geek Generation’s holiday party, and we exchanged “bags of awesome” – basically, “Loot Crate” holiday bags filled with nerdy goodness to share. I actually bought a few of the items I’m sharing today, and it got me thinking; what last-minute nerdy gift ideas would be great for giving?
01 DIY Unicorn | 02 Axent Wear Headphones | 03 Bulbasaur Planter | 04 Grumpy Elf Dunny | 05 Lightsaber Chopsticks | 06 Comic Book Washi Tape
I actually bought those light saber chopsticks for my bag of awesome – and they were a success! I was kinda jealous of the person that got them. ;)
What nerdy gifts are you giving this year?
Who doesn’t love a good flash drive, am I right? I was clearing out some of my old bookmarks and found these drives, and it prompted me to want to pull together some of the most fun drives I could find. So, here’s a whole bunch of clever flash drives that look way cooler than those boring ones we probably all have:
empty memory by logical art | kate spade bow | wooden usb stick by oooms | clé usb keys
data clips by nendo | marceline mimobot | sabochan MIMOBOT® by tokidoki
Do you have a fun flash drive, or any sort of crazy fun tech gadgets? I’m feeling quite embarrassed of my cruzer drive which yes, I still use…
FOR HER: stag statue | tea tin | necklace | clutch
FOR HIM: scarf | coasters | cocktail shaker | coffee
FOR THE LITTLE ONES: baby blanket | ‘balloon’ animal | giraffe dish set | hedgehog mobile
I haven’t posted any gift guides yet this year, so I thought I’d post a little last-minute guide for those of you who are still looking! Something for her, something for him, and something for the little ones. While I may have procrastinated a bit with my gift guide, I actually did pretty well this year with my gifts! All my presents are set and wrapped, and I’m ready for the holiday!
What are your last minute gift ideas?
bib necklace | gold garland | troll pasta holder | skin hydrating set
gold straws | ampersand print | midi dress
There’s something about the Holidays that makes me want to exchange everything I own for gold. Am I alone in this? I love adding pretty gold sparkles and gold accented items to my regular household around this time of the year, it just makes everything more festive. And although I don’t have many holiday parties to go to this year, shimmery gold dresses and sparkly jewelry are all I can think about.
Are you decorating with gold this holiday season?
