An Awesomely Geeky Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, people around the world are scrambling to find the perfect gift for their spouses. The chocolate and card thing is boring. Believe me, been there and done that. Want a geeky way of showing your loved one how much you <3 them? Look no further!

For 75 dollars, you can buy a gift that weighs next to nothing! Aerogel Technologies has developed a pink heart that is 96% air by volume to show your sweetie you love them. It is made from the one of the world’s lightest solid material and feels like you are holding a cloud. You will be able to see it but the lightweight density will barely register on your skin.

This pink heart is perfect for the geek in your life. If your honey is particularly interested in science and technology, this will surely be the ideal gift for them. Be careful, though! It is extremely fragile. The website says, “Unlike true love, Valentine Aerogels are fragile.  Handle with care”. It also comes with a six-page safety and hazards identification data sheet. Nothing quite says “I love you” better than a MSDS sheet. A copy can be found here.

This is truly a unique gift. If you are tired of the cliché Valentine’s Day gift, we think you should check this out.
