non-traditional valentine's gift ideas

Every year we see stores fill up pink and red items we’re supposed to buy for Valentine’s Day. But there’s only so much candy and overly sweet stuffed animals we can take. If you’re like me, most of those stuffed animals are loved – but end up on a shelf after the holiday or in the closet. We’re all about giving gifts that mean something, or something that lasts more than the holiday, and this year we’ve come up with 10 different gift ideas for people on your Valentine’s Day shopping list. This includes kids, the guys and gals in your life. We even included ideas for friends – we don’t discriminate on where you spread love on Valentine’s Day!

They’re building toys, the encourage STEM, they light up and teach a bit of engineering skills. The 30 in 1 super Copter let’s you build 30 different designs, each one lights up with a button push and hold together strong. Most of the Laser Pegs parts are rounded, some remind you of old glass tubes used in older TVs and Radios. But inside are the LED lights. The lighting elements not only add some fun to the build but add some curves to the square blocky shapes you’re use to making with block designs.
