Geeky Valentine Gift Guide 2022
Adagio is the Geekiest Tea Ever
If you like tea, you have to check out Adagio Tea’s Fandom blends. And even if you don’t like tea, it’s worth getting it just for the cool artsy tins it comes in! They have almost every fandom covered with their unique blends. It’s all loose tea, so if you do get this as a gift, adding some tea bags or a tea strainer pot/cup is a good idea.
Fashionably Geeky Accessories
CuffLinks.com offers a very fashionable way to show your geeky side with ties, socks, bracelets, belts and of course, cufflinks featuring your favorite fandoms! They carry Star Wars, Star Trek, Disney, DC, Marvel, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones goods for the grown-up geek. Shown below are the I Love You, I Know Icon cufflinks and Luke Skywalker Lightsaber bracelet. The products are high quality and the packaging on these is really nice as well.

Custom Game Controllers
Put any picture you want on your PS4 Game Controller! How romantic is that? This company does a custom skin that fits over an existing controller as a vinyl decal: Custom Skin for PS4 Controller with Your Photos
I also think ANY custom game controller is a pretty cool gift idea for a gamer. There are tons of options available, including special editions for specific games.
Groove Life’s Marvel Line
Groove Life has some great options for the active geek– like Avengers silicon rings you can wear while working out and the only belt you’ll ever need, with a cool geeky belt buckle of course. They also have some gorgeous leather watch bands emblazoned with Avengers logos. Check them out on GrooveLife.com
Bokksu Japanese Snack Box
This is a really neat gift for anime fans, and just fans of Japanese food (like me!). The box comes straight from Japan and packed full of unique snacks to try, along with a sample of tea. It’s a subscription box, but you can do just one box, or a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription. Each box is themed and comes with a booklet that explains everything in the box, which is good, because everything on the packages is in Japanese!
You can save $20 off your first box with promo code GEEKMAMA , plus if you use Rakuten then you can get additional $$ back right now. (If you aren’t using Rakuten when shopping online, I highly recommend it)
Star Wars Kitchen Set
If you have a Star Wars fan that also loves cooking, there’s a lot of fun items available from small kitchen accessories to pots and pans and small appliances. I have a Millenium Falcon waffle iron myself! This kitchen set is a great idea for a bundled gift with utensils, a Darth Vadar apron and free dishwasher magnet. Check it out: Star Wars Kitchen Set
Geeky Magnetic Poetry
We had one of these magnetic poetry kits in college and my roommate and I would leave funny poems on the refrigerator for each other all the time. Now there’s a version just for geeks! Click here to check out the Geeky Magnetic Poetry Kit
Superhero Wearable Blanket
It’s the easiest cosplay ever! The DC Comics Adult Soft Throw Blanket with Sleeves is a comfy and stylishly geeky way to keep warm this winter! Snuggle up as Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Superman or Batman.
I hope you enjoyed these few ideas for geeky gifts! I’ll be adding to this gift guide as I find new items until Valentine’s Day.
