Romantic Valentine’s Day Gifts from the Filter Geek

Like many around the country, you are searching for the perfect romantic gift for your significant other. You could always buy roses or a box of chocolate, but how about a gift that truly shows your appreciation for them? We don’t sell candy, jewelry or top-of-the-line gadgets (shocker, I know), but we do offer romantic Valentine’s Day gifts that show how much you truly care about the health and wellness of your significant other.

When you think of romantic gifts, a humidifier does not come to mind (unless you’re me, of course), but a humidifier can be an important household item. For those dealing with congestion, sinus irritation and more, a humidifier makes a big difference. The Crane Pink Drop Shape Humidifier gives you relief from the aforementioned ailments, in a whisper quiet operation that can run up to 24 hours. This sleek humidifier looks great, and works even better.

Our loved ones have strange personality quirks, like weird habits or singing embarrassingly loud in public. No matter how different they may be, there is one important aspect you both share: the need for water to survive and function on this Earth. What better way to make sure they have easy access to this resource than a BPA free, stainless steel alternative to bottled water? The Klean Kanteen Red 18 oz. Bottle is transportable, dishwasher safe and 100% recyclable making this an ideal Valentine’s Day gift.

I admit that an air filter may not come across as the “sexiest” Valentine’s Day gift to get your loved one. However, when you look at the benefits of the Filtrete 6-pack Micro-Allergen Home Air Filter, it is easy to see why I’m recommending it. This 6-pack of filters reduces pollen, smoke, household dust and more. By cleaning the air your loved one(s) breathe; you’re helping to keep their health intact. What’s more important than seeing your loved one healthy and in good spirits?

Other great gift ideas include the Austin Air HM205 Baby’s Breath Allergy Machine that gives your child the rest it deserves. Order now and receive a special GWP pre-filter with your order.

These are also great long distance relationship gifts. We’ll ship it directly to your far away lover on your behalf. I won’t be offended if you didn’t see any gifts that interest you. However, I will be offended if you don’t visit and browse through our complete selection of water pitchers, water bottles, humidifiers and air filters for more gift ideas. After you place your order and it is delivered safely into the hands of your loved one, you don’t have to tell him/her that your gift idea came from the filter geek. You can take all the credit for that, my friend. Just remember to look beyond the usual Valentine’s Day gifts, and go for the gift that shows how much you truly care about their well being.

National Wear Red Day: Have A Heart

Heart disease is the number one killer of women. To raise awareness for this concern, the American Heart Association along with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute created National Wear Red Day. Every year on the first Friday in February, millions of women and men wear red to symbolize their commitance to fight this deadly disease.

One proven way to reduce the risk of heart disease is to drink more water. A six-year study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology found that those who drank more than five glasses of water a day were less likely to die from a heart attack than those who drank less than two glasses per day. The study conclusively proved that water plays a vital part in your heart health.

At, we take heart health seriously. With so much at stake, it is important to have access to clean water at all times. The following items will ensure that clean water is always within reach.

The Clear2GO Filtered Vanity Bottle provides you with heart healthy water by reducing 99.9% of waterborne contaminants and easily opens at the touch of a button. This filtered vanity bottle also includes a travel loop for on-the-go convenience, making it great to carry along during physical activities such as hiking and jogging.

The Katadyn Red Splash MyBottle is reliable, easy to operate and reduces unpleasant odors. Specially built for the outdoors, this water bottle gives you the benefit of having filtered water wherever you are. The Katadyn MyBottle meets the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for the removal of bacteria and other waterborne contaminants.

The Brita Grand Water Pitcher has a capacity to carry up to 10 cups of water. By reducing copper, chlorine and odor, you will have better tasting water in the comfort of your home. This Brita pitcher features a soft-grip handle for comfort and an electronic filter indicator for added convenience.

Water, in addition to regular physical activity, plays an important role in heart health. Be sure to be active whenever possible to reduce risks of heart disease in your own life. As part of our social responsibility, employees have chosen to wear red to symbolize our commitment to fight heart disease. We stand by anyone who has fought this battle and encourage everyone to take the steps necessary to reduce the risk of heart disease in your own life.
