19. 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt: Measures Proximity to Lovers
Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero… you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study, ThinkGeek labs determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don’t understand? Well luckily for you they’ve created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.
Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000…). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey… you’re depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you’re fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you’ll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it? Buy it here.

20. Anatomical Heart Pendant
Valentine’s Day is a weird holiday in many ways. Although it started out as a day to honor one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine, since the 1840s, it has been a manufactured holiday used to sell cards, chocolate, flowers and other romantic gifts.
