Anyone can buy their true love a nice dinner or a dozen roses. It takes a special kind of Gadget Guy to find a more original Valentine's gift from the heart - or from the fire the heart sometimes stokes further down the torso.

Anyone can buy their true love a nice dinner or a dozen roses. It takes a special kind of Gadget Guy to find a more original Valentine's gift from the heart - or from the fire the heart sometimes stokes further down the torso.

Spin Me ($35) is one such gift. This game, which comes to us from England, is a take-off on the classic Spin the Bottle. Leave it to those wacky Brits to turn innocent fun into a saucy Benny Hill-type spoof.

Instead of just having the players kiss, Spin Me's ceramic bottle contains a dozen "adventure strips" with instructions for the person to whom the bottle is pointing. Some strips are G-rated, but many go way up the rating scale, from pillow fighting to tickling and more.

This product is available at JimmyJane.com, a website that sells vibrators, silk and suede blindfolds, massage candles and more vibrators. Let that be fair warning should you decide to buy it.

The folks at ThinkGeek.com can always be counted on to offer sophomoric gadgets perfect for a holiday built around love and sex.

Guys, you've got a real keeper if your sweetheart is willing to wear the Slide To Unlock baby doll tee ($19). This charcoal cotton T-shirt sports the iPhone's "Slide To Unlock" graphic strategically printed across the chest. As excuses go, who needs anything better than the instructions on this shirt?

Possibly better than that is the Electronic Drum Kit T-shirt ($30), with seven playable drum pads located chest-high.

On the more romantic front are the 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-shirts. This gadget, purchased in pairs ($62 for two shirts and the required transmitter pack), features six hearts capable of lighting up. Only two-and-a-half hearts light up when the wearer is alone; when in proximity of their significant other wearing the matching shirt, all six hearts on both shirts shine brightly.

Ladies, if you receive any of these gifts and feel the need to make a statement like "Don't ever do that again," I suggest the Ex-Unique Knife Holder ($70). Made of heavy-duty plastic, it includes, and holds, five kitchen knives on the silhouette of a man - protruding from places no man will be able to ignore.

Happy Valentine's Day!
