Geekify Your Valentine!

Geekify Your Friends for Valentines Day

These valentines featuring thick framed glasses would be an excellent alternative to candy this year, don’t you think?  As a clever response to the “no candy” policy that some schools implement during Valentine’s Day, Melanie Blodgett created the idea for a more visually sweet type of confectionery  over at her blog, YouAreMyFave.  In addition to the tutorial, she offers a free printable(!) which can be found here.

Valentines Day Glasses collage

What an amusing addition to any cardboard Valentine’s Day mailbox!  After swapping candy hearts, kids (or coworkers!) can pretend to be their favorite bespectacled hero.  A sugar rush AND school/office-appropriate cosplay…what’s not to love?! :)

You’ve still got time to find your favorite geeks the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.  In fact, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites available now on Etsy, including some anti-Valentine’s Day gifts and cards too.  And yes . . . those are zombie gnomes kissing.  Nothing says I love you like zombie gnomes you know.

Geeky Free Printable Valentines

StarWarsValentinesPrintables

It’s never too early to get started on those Valentines, and I’ve found some great ones for Star Wars and Doctor Who fans.

The first series of valentines are designs from Alecia at AleciaDawn Photography.  She’s got seven separate designs, all of them epic, and all of them perfect for kids and adults (and anyone in between).  All you have to do is download and print them out on some card stock.

DoctorWhoValentinesPrintable

The second series I found while exploring the wilds of the intarwebz are valentines from Heidi Schulz and her blog Frantically Simple.  These exploit my ultimate weakness, Doctor Who.  These are definitely worth traveling through space and time, but you’ll only have to download them and print them out on some card stock to enjoy.

ZombieValentinesPrintables

The last series of valentines I found are from Hanasaurusrex!  Nothing says “I love you” like zombies, so look no further for Valentine’s Day cards than here!

Super-size Your D20

Giant Metallic D20

For Valentine’s Day, some people dream of getting a sparkly, shiny something. Here’s a geeky version – a giant metallic d20 (20-sided die, for the role-playing game un-initiated).

Kat and Cam at Our Nerd Home have rolled up a quick tutorial for you on how to make your own d20 using a piece of ~20″x20″ cardboard (I love how they used cardboard from a Lord of the Rings set of Legos they just happened to have laying around!)

My son’s 20th birthday is this week, so this could be just about the perfect present for me to make for him.

In the post, Kat/Cam mention that they left the numbers off the die to make it a more subtle decor item. If you make this, will you add numbers, or no?
