6. DC Valentine Story
Most of you probably already know about this comic, but in case you missed it DC has released Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special. It’s filled with stories about Aquaman spoiling his wife, Wonder Woman seeking counsel about her feelings for the Man of Steel and other fun stories of our favorite super heroes and their romantic adventures. You can’t order this online, so go local and support a comic shop.

7. Darth Father
Being a dad, I’m always a sucker for these kind of things. What better way to give a gift of your love of your man, his fatherhood, and his nerdom than with this awesome Darth Vader father sculpture. It’s a little pricey, but very cool.
8. The Nerdy Baker
What’s Valentine’s Day without sweets? What better way to celebrate your nerdy baker than some nerdy cookie cutters? If you’re anything like me, we love to throw small premier parties for TV shows and what not. These are awesome for just that occasion.
9. Batman Motorcycle Helmet
Look… I know I don’t drive a motorcycle, and yes this is very expensive, but fandom doesn’t have limits. This is awesome. I think could just sit around in my underwear at the house playing Arkham: Origins all day with this on. Too Cool.
10. Muscle Up Shirt
Has your man, or lady that’s really into bulking up, been hitting it hard at the gym, but not getting the desired results. Well… now you can give them a boost of ego and cheat a little. This shirt, as you can see from the picture, has the desired muscle built in. Maybe they’re not where they want to be in their fitness yet, but this could be a good (or really bad) way to encourage them.
11. Moving Rorschach Ink Blot Masks
This is just TOO FREAKIN’ COOL. You’ll understand after you watch the video, and if you have any huge Watchmen fans in your life they will love you for this. It’s only $30 and totally worth every penny.

15. Don’t forget the dagger
If you buy Assassin’s Creed jacket for your loved one, you might as well equip them with the hidden dagger. A psychotic evaluation may be necessary before gifting though, this could come back to haunt you.
