Nerdy Valentine’s Gift Guide 2015

Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Making purchases from these links may result in a commission for this site so that I can buy cat litter. You can learn more about my disclosure policy here.

For this Valentine’s Day I figured I’d do something a little different and I made up a gift guide that’s 100% for dudes. Or girls who like wearing dude things. Or, well, everyone… I guess…

In any event, I opted to steer clear of the traditional baubles and perfume type gifts and highlight fun video game themed items (with one obvious exception) that you can get for your special someone this Valentine’s Day.

Or not.

I’m not your boss.

      The company that makes it is based in MTL and specializes in limited edition gamer themed shirts. They have a Kratos one right now that is pretty great too.

      I really wish they’d been available when Rick and I got married. They would have been perfect. Instead Rick and his dudes got monogrammed ties.

    We just finished yesterday the Super Mario 3d world (we are slow players but play very throughly, each star, each stamp everything ;P), so I’m sure Dani would smile so much with the Browser t-shirt 🙂

      Nothing wrong with being a completionist! And like I said, La Manette have tons of super-cool video game themed T’s.
