Geek Love Art Prints

RH Numbers

Nothing says "I <3 U" quite like a nerdy picture to hang on your woman's wall, and if she's truly a geek, she'll certainly appreciate one of these arty offerings.

The Geek Love Art Prints by Nicole Martinez come in five funky designs, each as dweeb-tastic as the next. At 40cm x 32cm, they're not so massive that they'll look out of place and could be bought collectively for a triptych-type trio above the mantle.

My personal faves are the 'We got Chemistry' and 'You mean the world to me', as pictured below, but click through to Firebox for all the designs. They're not badly priced, either.

HTC Rhyme

RH Numbers

If you think your woman could do with a bit more Sense in her life, then how about splashing out on the HTC Rhyme, a smartphone specifically geared towards the feminine mobile user?

The Rhyme flaunts a 3.7in display and 5Mp stills'n'video camera as well as a front-facing 0.3Mp webcam. It packs 4GB of storage and 768MB of Ram. This is all powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm CPU running Android 2.3 Gingerbread spruced up with the latest Sense UI.

But let's forget the specs with this one and look towards what makes it such an attractive prospect for the ladies. For starters, it comes in three feminine colours, it has a super organised home screen, but best of all, there's a little 'Rhyme Charm' thrown in.

This is a small glowing cube which attaches to the handset with a cable and dangles out of a handbag for easy access and to present phone notifications through coloured lights. Oooh, shiny.
