5 Unique Gifts for Valentine’s Day that won’t make you Vomit

Listen, I’m not one of those bitter, angry, single feminists (one out of four…). I feel very warmly about love. I’m definitely not anti-Valentine’s day. While I do think you should show love to your partner every day and I do have problems with the way it’s marketed, people in long term relationships get busy and it’s nice to have a day to remind you to make your partner(s) feel special.

Unique gifts for Valentine's BMO love Loquacious Lorna

However, I do have a huge problem with trying to find the perfect gift for my non-stereotype of a husband. Everything feels just a little bit…

Dorito…covered…

No, I mean cheesy. I’m a die-hard romantic. I literally made more than four mix tapes for my husband every year of our relationship. I moved an entire country for a dude I met on the internet. I’m like the poster girl for ‘falls hard for love’.

But I also have a fun sense of humour and I really like stuff that isn’t so…boring and stereotypical.

So if you’re like me, click below to have a look at Five Unique gifts for Valentine’s Day that aren’t too cheesy pie.

Arcade Block October 2015 Reveal.

Arcade Block October 2015 Reveal.

Arcade Block

Arcade Block is a monthly subscription box that is run by Nerd Block costing $19.95 (US) a month (plus shipping) which delivers assorted geekery and fandom goodies to its subscribers. From Nerd Block you can also subscribe to many other themed boxes, including Horror Block and Comic Block. I actually wasn’t expecting to receive anything. Having signed up for their Welcome Box and being disappointed (items from the welcome box are currently for sale on my Ebay, linked to the left) I had cancelled, but I guess it didn’t take in time. Thankfully, because the first item I reveal below the cut, blew my mind!

Loot Crate Reveal – October 2015 – Time.

Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box costing $19.95 (US) a month which delivers assorted geekery and fandom goodies to its subscribers. It comes with an optional add-on of Lvl Up; giving further accessories for a separate payment. I’m currently not subscribed to Level Up, but that could change at any moment! Each month Loot Crate comes with a different theme. October’s theme is Time. I was reasonably interested in the Time theme, though I suspected there would be nothing that would be a must have item for me. Loot Crate heavily hinted at items from Back to the Future, Doctor Who and Bill and Ted; none of which are my ‘fandom’ though I know of all of them quite well. So what exactly was contained in October’s crate?
