My male captor’s birthday is coming up, and so my female captor’s family wrapped all of his presents in recycled paper and drew hedgehogs all over them! If you’re wondering why some say “bear” on them, it’s because my captors refer to hedgehogs as bears.

Wait until you see the hedgehog-related presents that were inside…

I walked in from work today to these cute little presents on the floor and a boyfriend playing Xbox.

The sign says “Are you a horcrux? Because I’d like to put a vital piece of my humanity inside you” I died.

I died and almost wanted to cry. When I said it wasn’t Valentine’s Day he said “I know. I couldn’t wait.”

I love him.

I asked my best friend what kind of wrapping paper she wants for her christmas presents. She said “Anything but yellow or pink”.
Being the good friend I am, I decided to buy the ugliest yellow christmas paper and the ugliest non matching ribbon…

But I thought there is something missing, so somehow accidentally this happened…

She started laughing and I am really happy about this

Valentine’s Day is quite close and I thought I could give some of you some ideas for presents. Even though mathematicians are not into this celebration, I can assure you that if you know what gift to take they will be as excited as everyone else. You might think that a math related gift might be to much, but I assure you we love it a lot. So here are some suggestions which might work quite good:

1. Cards: these don’t have to be bought and most of the time it is quite hard to find some that represent exactly what you want, but just take a piece of paper and some colorful pencils or pens and write what ever you have in your mind, but don’t forget to put just a drop of mathematics in it. Here are some of my favorite ideas:

2. T-shirts: if you believe that a card is not enough and you want something a little more different, a t-shirt could be the best idea. Here are some great ideas of T-shirts and a hoodie idea for those that live in countries where T-shirts for Valentine’s Day is not appropriate:

There could other ideas, such as books or cups, plates, etc; but I thought this is enough as a list of ideas. For me something minimal is better than a lot of things. Personal I would love to receive just a small card ^_^ Anyway, hope you will have a great Valentine’s Day full of mathematics and love.

Have a great day. You can find me on Facebook,  Tumblr,  Google+,  Twitter,  Instagram  and  WeHeartIt. I will try to post there as often as possible.

Don’t forget that maths is everywhere! Enjoy! ~LThMath~

Valentine’s Day for Mathematicians Valentine’s Day is quite close and I thought I could give some of you some ideas for presents.

Imagine Stiles freaking out over Valentine's Day because he finds out that Derek is secretly really romantic and he KNOWS Derek is going to do something cliche and stupid like buy him a hundred roses or something so he tries REALLY HARD to do something corny but special and when he wakes up on Valentine's morning Derek has crafted a Star Wars themed Valentine's adventure for him, starting with a mini BB8 rolling breakfast in bed over to him

OH MY GOD THOUGH, BECAUSE DEREK IS A LIKE SUPER RICH CUTIE PATOOTY, SO OF COURSE INSTEAD OF BUYING SOMETHING INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE FOR THEIR FIRST VALENTINES DAY TOGETHER HE DOES THE NERDIEST THING EVER AND INVESTS IN A ROBOT TOY. OF COURSE HE DOES. 

Because, like, Derek loves gift giving and he loves the look in Stiles’ eyes every time he gives him something because, well, Stiles is used to spending a lot of time on people’s birthday. Like, he makes lists and charts and spends so much time thinking about presents. But, you know, no one really ever does the same for him. Which is fine, Stiles doesn’t expect anyone to do the same for him because his methods are a little insane anyway, but, you know..sometimes he can’t help but feel a little disappointed when he spends ages trying to track something down for someone and in return they give him a gift voucher or something. 

And then ENTER DEREK WHO SPENDS SO MUCH TIME LEARNING ABOUT STILES. DEREK WHO LOVES LEARNING ALL THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT STILES AND A LITTLE MORE AND JUST…SPOILS HIM. And Stiles tries to get him to stop at first, but then Derek tells him it’s his version of all Stiles does for him, all those little things Stiles does for Derek he doesn’t realise he’s doing, like buying his favourite cereal and making appointments for him at the dentist, making sure the pizza place never puts mushrooms on their pizza because Derek hates them. And Derek, well, Derek just loves doing all the big things all the time. He likes taking Stiles out and buying presents and giving him massages with the really expensive oils. And of course Stiles does all that stuff for Derek too, just as Derek does little things for Stiles, but Derek has the means to go just a little more wild on presents and stuff- at least at the beginning of their relationship anyway- and does things like buy Stiles A BB8 LIFE SIZE ROBOT. 

It’s a nice balance, Stiles doing more little things, Derek doing more big, but they still do it all, and they don’t do it because of anything, they just do it because they want to, and that’s what makes it awesome.

3 Non Traditional Ways of Giving Traditional Valentine’s Day Gifts

I really believed that – “Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and it’s about time to start thinking of gifts. Or it will end up being something ordinary, which would be forgotten in days. That’s what happens with traditional gifts like chocolates and messages.” – I was wrong. 

Last weekend, we were thinking about how conventional gifts, specially valentines traditional gifts are there for a reason. For example if you’re sending the gift over long distances or your Valentine would like nothing better than chocolate. It would make absolute sense to give a traditional gift. On the other hand, that doesn’t mean you can’t personalise it!

“I know how long you’ve been wanting to get it.”  Jeremy explained as you unwrapped the video game he had gifted to you.  You squealed, clutching the game in one hand and throwing your arms around your boyfriend.

“Thank you so much!”  You exclaimed, pulling away once more to study the game in your hand.

“One more thing.”  Jeremy smiled, pulling out a bouquet of coral colored flowers from behind his back.  As the smile on your face grew even bigger than before he returned your smile.  Glad that he could make you’re Valentine’s day perfect.
