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:
Here are some cards I have made these days:
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 (click the image if you want to see how you could buy them) :
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.
Don’t forget that maths is everywhere! Enjoy! ~LThMath~
