When it comes to celebrating love, sometimes flowers, candy, and jewelry does it. And then sometimes, gifts like that barely do it any justice. When you are in real love and really know a person, you know fancy gifts aren’t the way to their heart. It’s all about speaking to who they are as a person—more importantly who they are as a person to you. This is especially true of self-identified nerdy couples. Truly the salt of the earth, nerdy couples indulge in each other’s quirks and passions. So instead of getting your nerdy other half a generic bouquet of roses, why not get them something a little more personal?
This collection of gifts are just a few examples of how nerds can show they care. Everything we curated for this is specifically gender neutral, so whoever you’re buy for, we know that they’ll love their gift. Check out some of the nerdiest, sweetest things we could find on Amazon that we’re sure your S.O. will geek out over too.
