Thinking of a perfect and heartfelt gift for your geeky partner can be a tough task. Valentine’s Day is usually for the sweet and sappy but that doesn’t mean that you can’t give one-of-a-kind items, or that they have to be pink or red or sparkly. Perhaps, going for something woodsy will be a fresh concept?

UGears offers the best selection of wooden, do-it-yourself gift ideas:

Robot Factory

Typically, what comes to mind when you think about robots is metals and screws. But this robot factory is made entirely of wood parts that you put together yourself. The best part is that it is convenient and functional. The figures move and run just as well as any common metal or high-grade plastic robotic figures on the market.

The set contains 657 pieces that form a fully functional factory setup that you can either manually move or start with the push of a button. It contains a manual freight host, running engines and gears, and even two robot figures that can play as an extra hand in factory activities.

This set will be a hit for kids and grown-ups alike. You can get the same amount of satisfaction and enjoyment with this wooden set as with any regular metallic robot sets.

You don’t need glue and scissors to construct the robots and other components. We’ve made it very easy for you to put them together by hand.

Combination Lock

You don’t need to find expensive cryptex locks at the market. UGears’ wooden Combination Lock is a cryptex lock at half the price, but double the fun. You can build your own Da Vinci-inspired cryptex lock without the use of any tools. The set includes the wooden parts and an easy-to-follow instruction manual.

The lock opens when you get the correct 3-digit code (which you can change whenever you want, and there are up to 1,000 possible combinations), and there is a hollow space to store any small trinkets or whatever secret letters you can fit in there. You can also use this as a real lock or a keychain to anything with its eyelet.

If you two are fond of hiding love notes for each other, or perhaps you want to surprise her with a necklace, ditch the old gift bag and put it inside for the more fascinating presentation. It won’t even be a problem for you to build this wooden cryptex lock. You just need to follow the instructions on how to build it – no glue or tape needed!
