It’s the season of hearts, love, cheesy pickup lines, and gifts that would knock your loved one’s socks off. Usually, it’s easy to pick gifts for our partners on valentine’s, but what if your partner is an engineer? It can be a bit difficult to pick out a gift that would really stand out for him/her. So, I made a list from some of the geeky stuff from Red5.co.uk that you may want to think about buying, or at least give you an idea of what an engineer may want for valentine’s day.
Game Over Mug
If your significant other loves playing games (plus he’s an engineer/engineering student who stays up all night studying), then this is the perfect gift for him! It may be a bit bulky, but who cares, it looks cool and it this gaming style mug gives of a geeky yet extra cool vibe. This ceramic mug has “game over” written on the bottom once you’ve finished drinking your cup of coffee.
Mini Arcade Machine
Here’s another geeky yet cute gift you can give your loved one for valentine’s day. This portable miniature arcade machine has 240 built in games which are based on all the classic games that 90’s kids cherished and loved. It has a full-color 2.5” screen that comes with full sound effects and music. It has an 8-way control joystick as well as 2 buttons.
Star Wars BB8 Droid
This BB8 droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens can be controlled via your phone or tablet using Bluetooth. It recognizes and reacts to your voice as well! It can also roam autonomously as it has a mind of its own. You can install upgrades and can create, view, and share holographic messages. This droid can also evolve as you interact.
Stormtrooper Head Bluetooth Speaker
This is perfect for the engineer who loves to listen to music. This Bluetooth speaker can be recharged but also has a AAA battery option. It has a size of 10.5cm x 11.8cm x 12.7cm.
This is perfect for the engineer who likes to tinker, well, every engineer loves to tinker, so might as well put this on your to-buy-list. It has 3 tools in 1: A flat head screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, and bottle opener. It’s made of aluminum and has a keychain attachment, so it can be brought wherever.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
