A lot of us have a love-hate relationship with Valentine’s day. We all grow out of the generic flowers, chocolates and wine pairings because we grow jaded from the commercialisation of this Hallmark holiday, and do not wish to take advice from corporations on what we should do in our relationships to be a good partner. However, Valentine’s day can be whatever you want it to be. You need not spend money on generic trinkets if that is not what you or your partner like, but it can be a nice excuse to do something special for your partner.
It can take a bit more time and effort to think about a gift that is tailored to their tastes, but if they’re the geeky types, then a gift that fits their tastes will be priceless to them.
Almost all of us have a geek inside us. According to Dan Harmon, creator of Rick and Morty, all of us have a secret craving to be obsessed with something and not feel stupid about it. There is nothing more wonderful than knowing that your partner knows and cares about this aspect of your personality, and wants to celebrate it. So let us look into some geeky gift ideas you can give to your partner. These are simply ideas, so feel free to make your pick from them,
