Valentine’s Day

Unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him and for her.

Pixel Heart Heat Changing Mug

Pixel Heart Heat Changing MugThis thing is cool! Or hot, when you put a drink in it.

Get your valentine a special mug that will warm their heart…or at least the mug’s heart! As you can see on the right there, the heart on this mug changes color based on its temperature. So with a fresh cup of coffee, tea, or whatever else you like to drink at high temperatures from a mug, you get a fully red heart. As the mug cools and your stomach fills, the heart will return to its lowly black state.

This is a great little gift, and even something you can get for guys because it’s kind of sort of techy. It does have an 8-bit style to it at least. But be sure that nobody throws it in the microwave or dishwasher. Those will each ruin the color-changing-ness of the mug.

Show your valentine they are loved, just like coffee.

Mahogany 2-Drawer Chocolate Box

Mahogany 2-Drawer Chocolate BoxValentine’s Day is coming up quickly, again. You know what that means; flowers and chocolates!

So today I bring you chocolate, and I’m not messing around this time. ZChocolat has quite possibly the World’s best chocolates, as far as I can tell. I was just clicking around their site and it’s seriously impressive stuff. See the little assortment in the drawer in the picture there? I thought that the brown and white things were little boxes that the chocolate came in, but no, that is the chocolate! Each one is individually numbered with a real nice font.

Since I can’t come anywhere close to typing something as magical as they have, here’s what ZChocolat has to say about this 30 piece Mahogany set:

Chocolate Reflections. A very wise man once mused Fortunate is the chocolate thus roaming the world through women’s smiles finds its death over a flavorful and melting kiss in their mouths. This quote by Anthelme Brillat-Savarin comes to life in a most sumptuous way as the 30 chocolates in this selection are unveiled. Two drawers open to reveal a magnificent display of handmade chocolates held in a beautiful mahogany box that is adorned with the French version of Monsieur Savarin’s words. An evening of chocolate and poetry has never been so inviting.

See? So if you have the funds (I know I don’t) and want to show your true love how much she means to you, and if she loves chocolate, then do it the right way!

Even if you don’t plan on buying any, go check out the site here. It’s crazy impressive for a chocolate site.

Bittersweets

BittersweetsTired of the same old little Valentine’s Day chalky hearts? Well these are the same antacid type of treat, but they have much different messages on them than the usual.

The three tins to choose from are Dejected, Dysfunctional, and Dumped. This picture gives a little peek at what to expect from these. Clicking through will give you the entire list of every inscription on these hearts. Have some fun giving out downer hearts this year!

8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt

8-Bit Dynamic Life ShirtThis is pretty cool. ThinkGeek has a pair of t-shirts that will light up with hearts when you are near your loved one. So here’s what you do. Get two of these shirts, one for you and one for your significant other, and then when you’re apart, you’ll each have only 2½ hearts lit up, but when you’re near each other, all 6 hearts will light up. Pretty neat huh?

See the idea is, if you haven’t got it, to make it seem as though each of the t-shirt wearers are in a video game. In games, like Zelda, you want your hearts to be full, that means you’re strong and have perfect health. When they start to diminish, things aren’t looking so hot. So when you’re with your lover, things are looking good.

Of course, there are some things to do to get it set up right, like plug in a little transmitter that detects when the other person is nearby, but it’s totally worth it! You could both wear these shirts to a Valentine’s Day party or any other social event where you want to woo people with your love for each other. Could be a good time for everybody!

Photo Valentine’s Day Cards

Photo Valentine's Day CardsHere are some more Valentine’s Day cards. This particular one is pink with just a hint of chocolate brown in the border for a nice change. Obviously, you can put your own picture in there of you or your family, or really anything you want.

Here’s an idea for ya. Get a picture of some guys who are roommates in college, order some cards with their pictures on them and then send those cards to people they know! That would be a swell prank.

Natural Pink Pearl Sterling Silver Designer Pendant


Natural Pink Pearl Sterling Silver Designer Pendant
I had to blog about this one because it’s so unique looking. I think I might call it a Glob-O-Riches.

I kind of like the style of it though, it looks like it could be rearranged this way or that. The pink stones are freshwater pink colored pearl. Mix that with a bunch of little sterling silver beads and you’ve got something great to hang around your lady’s neck.

SilverShake.com has quite a bit of unique jewelry for ladies and men around the Valentine’s Day holiday. Good times!

Get her some pink and silver here.

Sports Heart Shaped Pendants


Sports Heart Shaped Pendants
I’ve been watching some tennis lately, at the moment the Australian Open is happening. So with Valentine’s Day coming up, why not mix sports and hearts?

The pendant, or locket, is available in 9 sports styles: Basketball, Cheerleading, Gymnastics, Skating, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, and Volleyball. The pendant is made of solid sterling silver and accented with 24K gold highlights.

If you know that girl who loves her sport more than almost anything else, help her show that love in style. The back side even has a little proclamation of the love of the sport.

Put a sport on her neck here.

I Love You Photo Frame

I Love You Building Blocks Photo FrameHere’s a nice little photo frame for that special someone on Valentine’s Day. I found this in the “for her” section, and I was thinking it might work for a guy or girl, but the little guy is the one building the blocks, so I think it’s intended for women.

The frame holds a 5×7 picture in place. It’s on sale for a little over half price right now, so it’s a pretty good deal as a nice Valentine’s Day gift idea. They’ve got other stuff over there, so check their stuff out if you feel so inclined.
