What to Get My Geek for Valentine's Day?

michael posted more than 10 years ago | from the get-your-geek-on dept.

Toys 1034

A reader writes "Help!!! I've been dating my geek for three months and I'm in a bit of a dilemma. So I thought I'd ask the men of Slashdot what they would want as a Valentine's Day gift. I'm looking for something out of the ordinary that will knock his socks off. Somthing clever, crafty and unique. The budget is $100. My geek's interests are typical geek fare, games, computers, music and gadgetry. So! You, men of Slashdot, tell me what you would want to recieve for Valentine's day and help me make my geek happy."

If he's anything like most of us geeks, we'll buy the geek toys ourselves to make sure we get exactly what we want.

So, my suggestion is, get him something non-geeky that he'd like or has commented on that shows you realize he is much more than just Geek.

My wife burns cereal (OBSimpsons -- Homer cooking Mr. Burns breakfast when Smithers is on vacation), and is scared of touching my feet because I had foot surgery and am missing a thing or two.

It's easy to give a geek gifts. ThinkGeek.com alone should satisfy you there. For V's Day, you might want to look for something you'd both enjoy, so that his immediate response isn't "Must go off and use new gadget alone!" Two-player videogames you're willing to play with him, DVDs you'll both like, that kind of thing. Stuff like books or single-player video games can wait until his birthday.

Couple of things... (2, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#8212670)

First, get him laid. Geeks love that(the ones who know what it is)...

Second, instead of spending $100 on him, just give him the money. Geeks are usually meticulous about what technology they buy, so don't screw it up and buy him something he'll throw in his closet and never use.

Third, get him laid.

and fourth... um... i dunno... get him laid...

I'd say give him the gift that keeps on giving.

Get him an external hard drive, preferably one that comes bundled with backup and synchronization software.

If he already has one, get him some blank CDs and/or DVDs, which are always useful, and a case of Jolt, I guess. Do they still make Jolt?

And for all those guys in here who are suggesting that she perform sex acts as a gift, for heavens sake, are you trying to kill the guy? He's a geek... any sex at all and he'll drop over dead... that is The Way of Things.

Being a lonely geek myself, I would say that I would be happy just getting to spend my day with a girl I love. The only thing that I would ever want would be her company for that day. There is no material object on the planet that would make me as happy as just getting to spend time someone I love. Just to hold her in my arms, and enjoy her company. Maybe sitting out in a park bench in the middle of the night looking out over a lake at the cityscape.

GoofyBoy (44399) | more than 10 years ago | (#8212724)

Seriously, healthly people like sex. Good caring sex, more so.

You get him $100 worth of somethng from ThinkGeek and its something anyone could give, really lacks creativity and will be forgotten in a year.

Hot, wild monkey sex with a liberal dose of caring and understanding towards your partner's needs will blow his/her mind away, is going to be unique to each other and will strengthen your relationship.

If, for your personal reasons, you are waiting to get married or whatever, then head over to ThinkGeek.
