20 Valentines Day gifts for geeks

Forget the overpriced flowers or chocolates and get your geek a Valentine's Day gift they will really love!

So Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we all know what that means: a dozen red roses, heart shaped boxes of chocolates, teddy bears with 'I wuv you' embroidered on their feet (who inadvertently end up in the bin a few days later). It enough to put any self-respecting geek off of the whole thing.

At the core of it all, though, Valentine's Day presents an opportunity to show your other half just how much they mean to you, to show that you really *get* them. If your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife is a bit of a geek, get them something they will love and use for years to come instead of a perfume they'll never wear or, heaven forbid, some novelty 'love dice'.

We've been trawling the web for some fun but functional gifts for geeks - whether they love gaming, gadgets or tech, we've got you covered.
