Jazz Up Your Valentine’s Day With These 3D Printed Gifts

X1up Girl | February 04 2014

Valentine's gifts can be so repetitive and boring:  flowers, candy, handcuffs, yawn!  Spice up your gift options with these awesome 3D printed goodies!

3D Printed Sweetheart Cookie Cutters from Licketycut:

I'm no cookiemancer, but making (or receiving) Valentine's heart candy shaped cookies with a cute message on them is a win!  Licketycut offers these neat 3D printed cookie cutters with a variety of messages (naughty and nice) for $5 each.  If hearts aren't your thing, they also have geek and gamer themed cookie cutters as well:

My significant other may be getting a dozen cookies forged using this amazeballs cookie cutter for Valentine's day... and every other holiday this year:

*wrings her hands and laughs maniacally*

 

3D Printed Desk Toys from Shapeways:

Who doesn't need more desk toys?  Currently, Shapeways is like the Cafe Press of the 3D printing world - anyone can upload their designs and sell them on this site, so there is a plethora of awesomeness to choose from (not just desk toys either).  Just be sure the item you pick is actually for sale.  Percy the pudgy unicorn, sadly, is not. :(

 

Custom 3D Printed Jewelry from Dyo:

Hey, who doesn't like jewelry? (Ok, put your hands down.) Dyo, an MIT startup, currently offers customizable 3D printed pendants and rings in a variety of materials (from metals to resins), starting off as low as $15.  My current fav is the customizable Verse ring that allows up to 14 characters.  There is a really neat preview option that renders an interactive and draggable 3d version of what the finished ring will look like: 

I love the idea of creating a ring with a gamertag as a gift, although I must admit I am mustering every bit of self control to NOT create a ring with the text "Butt Stallion" on it.
