In the Maker Shed: Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Did you forget about Valentine’s Day (like I did) and need a gift for that special someone? Here are some great ideas from the “Geek Chic” category of the Maker Shed!

Show your Valentine she has your heart with the <3 necklace (above.) This wonderfully geeky yet elegant necklace depicts an ASCII heart, like you’d see in email or text messages. The pieces are laser-cut in Sterling silver, then hand soldered to silver tubes that hang from the 20″ curb chain. The necklace has a high-shine finish and is treated to reduce tarnishing. The pendant measures 1.5″ square, and the two pieces dangle freely with a silver bead between them. Made with love and lasers in NYC.

Sophisticated. Elegant. Open Source. Turn her on with the iNecklace! This gorgeously machined aluminum pendant with a subtle pulsating LED will look great on your Valentine. It is perfect for women who celebrate art, science, engineering and great design. The pendant comes strung on a 18″ long sterling silver curb chain that has been treated to inhibit tarnishing. For a personal touch, hack the iNecklace to glow her favorite color. Just follow Marc’s simple instructions on Make: Projects!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
