It’s never too early to start shopping for Valentine’s Day. Here at Vulcan Post, we’ll be spewing up some gift suggestions to better prepare you for the month of love. P.S.- This concerns singletons, as well. Just because you don’t have a romantic interest doesn’t mean you can’t hunt for gifts for your mates to show appreciation!
To kick off the V-Day theme gift guide series, here are six ideas specially curated for your geeky friends.
Batman Typography Print
“Comic book heroes and typography. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this sooner?” writes Deborah Wee on HipVan. Upcoming blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is slated for release in 2016; naturally it seems fitting enough to include this formidable poster. Your apartment is about to become a lot more cooler.

3D Spider Man Hand Light

Guardians of the Galaxy – Little Groot
Last August, the Dancing Groot stole our heart. Ever since we saw it raising the roof to Jackson 5 on Guardians of the Galaxy, our love for the character began spiralling out of control. Have a down day? This baby groot will cheer anyone up in no time.

Funko Pop! Marvel 36: Loki
“He may have failed to conquer Midgard, but he conquered the fangirls instead,” writes a Buzzfeed user. Ask any Marvel fan, and he/she will tell you that Loki is way more badass than Thor. (In case you’ve missed it, even Thor himself admits it.) Also, this is a must-have if your love is unable to do anything except obsessing over Tom Hilddleston.
