Beyoncé, Star Wars or Vonnegut? Valentine’s Day gift guide for your geeky significant other

Okay, so we all know that in some ways, V-Day is a big corporate scam to get you to spend money on useless stuff in the name of “love”. And when it comes to jewelry, it’s way easy to break the bank in a way that may force you to subsist on bananas and bagels for the rest of the month. But what if you still have a dear one beside you that would love a shiny token of your affection on February 14? Hey, maybe you’d like to receive one, too! Whatever your gifting dilemma, you don’t have to surrender your wallet to ~The Man~ to grab an awesome, original prezzie for your sweetheart or close pal that celebrates all the wonderful things they’re into. Check out these rad jewelry alternatives!

1. Heartbeats necklaces by Erica Weiner

Wanting to create affordable, vintage-looking jewelry with plucky pop-culture references, Brooklyn’s Erica Weiner started out as an art student and costumer for Broadway shows. She began making jewelry after work as a stress-relieving hobby, and now she works with eight to ten other women in her studio to bring her creations to life. Because we think it’s pretty cool to support all-lady owned and operated businesses, these badass Heartbeats lyrics necklaces get our stamp of approval. Whether your jam was sung by Fleetwood Mac, Beyoncé or the Talking Heads, you or your honey can wear some of your favorite lyrics around your neck. (I’ve got the R. Kelly one and I hardly take it off!) They’re $55 USD for oxidized silver for $65 USD for 24k gold-plated, so you can cop some lovely bling without hitting the triple digits. Nice!



2. Superhero cufflinks by CustomSwagger

Treat the dapper lad or lady in your life with this Utah-based Etsy shop’s custom-made cufflinks! You can choose from the Superman logo, Star Wars droid heads, Transformers Decepticon heads and other ‘links inspired by Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Ghostbusters and more. Nothing says “I love you” like tiny Darth Vader heads to hold your cutie pie’s shirt together, right?! At about $12 CAD a pop, these little guys are definitely affordable. And supporting small businesses and at-home artisans is always in style, wethinks!

3. Out of Print’s literary-themed neck candy

If your beloved’s always got their nose in a book, then Out of Print’s products (based on iconic and classic novels) will totally be their thing. I’m really digging the cursive “Doubleplusgood” necklace referencing George Orwell’s 1984, and this To Kill a Mockingbird inspired charm necklace. The special recipient of this gift can fondly recall The Bell Jar, The Catcher in the Rye, Alice in Wonderland and other legendary works of literature every time they look down. All of their pieces are approximately $30 USD, and if you throw in their Library Stamp tee, Out of Print will send a book to a community in need. Pretty fab!


What are you doing to celebrate with your sweetie pie or dear friends come February 14? (By the way, a solo Netflix and mint-chocolate-chip ice cream marathon counts as celebrating, too.)

Just in: Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Transformers Silverstreak

One of the most novel and anticipated offerings in Takara’s Masterpiece Series is the 2014 Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Silverstreak. The Autobot formerly known as Bluestreak is known for his chit-chatty nature and transforms into a silver Datsun or a Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan when he’s got time off from taking out Decepticons. Although his joking chatter has been said to elevate the mood of fellow Autobots, it’s really a way that he deals with seeing too much battle carnage throughout his life.

But his complex psyche is just one reason why Silverstreak is one of the most dynamic characters of the Transformers franchise. This figure in particular is a scrupulous re-make of the original G1 Nissan Fairlady Z toy with up-to-date articulation and details. You can’t miss it!

Japanese re-imaginings of Decepticons Buzzsaw and Laserbeak

Buzzsaw, known for making eccentric works of art out of his victims, disemboweling them and regarding them as necessary casualties in the quest for global Decepticon victory. Scout and spy Laserbeak performs an essential role of support and back-up for Soundwave, and is an assassin keen on carrying out the agenda of the Decepticons to all corners of Planet Earth. As vital, clever members of the Transformers roster, they are “don’t-miss” characters.

And here, Buzzer and Laser are creative, third-party re-imaginings of the Transformers Buzzsaw and Laserbeak. These two figurines are conceptually based on the Transformers empire, but are original, across-the-Pacific designs by Japanese toy manufacturers PerfectEffect. Measuring three inches tall each, they’ll be an non-invasive yet standout addition to the toy assortment of any die-hard Transformers collector looking for unique and unconventional Decepticon-based figurines.

Buzzer and Laser are re-workings of classic Decepticons Buzzsaw and Laserbeak.

Skybyte, newest addition to Transformers Generations series, launches in full Decepticon mode

This brand-new figurine is two-in-one, capable of switching from robot mode to shark mode and back. This makes him prepared for any battle on land or sea against his Autobot nemeses. He’s always ready to strike with aquatic, robotic fury, hurling haikus at predators with Sharkticon menace.

A spinning missile launcher makes this Voyager Class Wave 7 toy a must-cop for this fall. Hasbro completes this 8-inch figure with window-box packaging perfect for collectors’ display.
