Is your partner a geek? My husband most definitely falls into this category and I really struggle to buy him gifts for Valentine’s Day. He’s often the first to say ‘don’t worry about buying me a present’ when the most romantic day of the year comes around, but I like giving gifts and I think it’s sad to miss the opportunity to spoil someone you love.
I’m not saying that buying gifts for geeks is easy, because actually it can be really hard but I’m determined to find my husband the perfect present this year. Seeing as I’ve been hard at work finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, I thought I would share all my ideas in this handy gift guide just in case you were having the same issues as me. I’m confident you will find the perfect present right here for the one you love that says, ‘I know your a geek, but I totally get you!’

‘Eat Sleep Game Repeat’ Light Box
If your boyfriend or partner is a geek I’m going to put money on the fact he’s a gamer. My husband is 44 years old and he’s still playing computer games. When he’s not playing computer games he watching other people play computer games on Twitch! You can have a little fun this Valentine’s Day with this retro style ‘Eat Sleep Game Repeat’ light box from Hurn and Hurn available for just £10.
I probably hear my husband say ‘where’s my … keys/phone/wallet/bag?’ at least once a day. I have no idea how someone can manage to lose things quite so easily. The TrackR Pixel is the perfect geek gadget for him and it will help him find whatever he has lost either at home or when we are travelling.
This nifty little device can attach to most things including keys and wallets, and with the help of the free app on his phone he will be reunited with his lost items in minutes using the alarm, led lights and tracking technology. It’s the perfect little present to pop inside a Valentine’s Day card and you could even play a little hunt the present if you wish!

Headphones are a really important accessory for my husband and I’m guessing your loved one will appreciate these Hesh 3 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones too. Red is the perfect colour for Valentine’s Day and he will love that they are bluetooth and wireless. Geeks are not fans of trailing wires! These headphones are currently available from Currys priced £99.99 and include a free 3 month subscription to Deezer so you could even add a personalised playlist to your perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
Playertek Football Performance Tracker
Does your partner enjoy a game or football? I think the Playertek football performance tracker will be a big hit then. Geeks love it when technology can help them with other parts of their lives, and they will be impressed with how the Playertek can help them improve their game. The pod is worn during the game and updates an app on your phone with your stats, like running speed and distance. They will be playing like a professional footballer in no time with this piece of kit on side. The Playertek is available from Amazon for £199.
