If your relationship involves more than the usual amount of Tweeting and "liking", maybe your partner would appreciate a gift that’s a little out of the ordinary – and one that will last longer than chocolates or flowers. Take a look at these gift ideas for something that’ll be sure to put a geeky spin on this most romantic of days.

Vintage eBook jackets. These eBook protectors from Out of Print are a great way to jazz up and preserve your Kindle with references to great literature. The cloth binding features the designs of classic covers to Alice in Wonderland, The Great Gatsby, Slaughterhouse Five and many more! Some even fit mobile devices that double up as eBooks, like the iPad and Nexus 7.
USB tulip hub. If your partner’s got more mobiles and flash drives than they know what to do with, here’s a fun and quirky take on a functional device: a tulip-shaped USB splitter that allows you to turn one hub into four. It’s not just a great way to get more USB sockets – it’ll liven up their desk, too! (And it sort of counts as getting them flowers.)
Heart-shaped photo keychain. The locket has evolved – now instead of just one photo, you can store up to 16MB (plus external storage) of romantic photographs on this keychain, which features a 1.1-inch digital LCD screen. Don’t forget to load it up with photos of your time together before you hand it over to your beloved!
Multimedia ring box. If you’re planning to pop the question, there’s no better time to do it than on Valentine’s Day – and no better way to do it than with this ring box, which features a two-inch LCD display that can display photos and videos (and, for some reason, an alarm clock and calendar – maybe to remind you to actually bring it out at the right time).
Companion Cube cookie jar. Everyone loves cookies, especially if they’re home-made – and we bet they taste even better when eaten out of this jar, carefully crafted to look like the loveable Companion Cube from Portal. Best of all, there’s no need to throw this one in the incinerator when you’re finished with it – just refill it with cookies and you’re ready to go!
