Yes even geeks can show their love in some very unique ways. The folks over at ThinkGeek have thought of everything and they have a page dedicated to this very idea. You can find it here. Here I will highlight just a few things that I hope to take a closer look at and share with you my thoughts on how to take this Valentine’s to a whole new geek level of awesometown.
8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt – $17.99 – $24.99
Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero… you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we’ve determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don’t understand? Well luckily for you we’ve created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.
Now you take two shirts with light up heart life meters. Separate them and watch the life bar slowly go down, then the closer you move towards your loved one your heart life bar replenishes. What better way to show your love for someone then a visual representation of your love for them.
Important Note: You need to purchase at least two shirts or one shirt and a Transmitter Pack for the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to work properly. Remember the Transmitter Pack is OPTIONAL You can just buy two shirts.

No use getting all those expensive bouquets if your loved one is a bit of an old school gamer they will love the 8-Bit Flower Bouquet. Love the idea and concept behind this and it is charming to boot.

Snarky Valentine’s Day Cards – $9.99
I am a huge fan of the unusual gift cards. Something to really show off my inner personality. Snarky would be a trait I admire most.
Valentine’s Day has been built up by the mass media and greeting card companies into just another “holiday” where people feel beholden to adorn their beloved with gifts. Those without said beloveds are made to feel inadequate – and that just plain sucks. Well, channel that attitude into some actual cards for Valentine’s Day, and you have this set of Snarky Valentine’s Day Cards pretty well summed up.
