Out of this World Gifts for Valentines Day

Updated on January 15, 2016

For Your Out of This World Valentine

Is your Valentine Out of this World? Does she or he make you feel on top of the World? Is yours a match made in the heavens? Are you both still over the moon for each other? Do you love your special someone to the moon and back or more than there are stars in the sky?

Then this page is for you. Give your sweetheart the moon, the stars, and a gift to remember for all space and time!

The Etymology* of Celestial Idioms for Love

Perhaps due to the awe-inspiring NASA photos sent from the edges of our solar system by Voyager, the extraordinary discoveries of the Hubble telescope, or the recent release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the use of metaphors related to space are currently popular ways to express love.

However, many of these terms go back centuries, if not millennia. Although their meanings may have changed over time, you may be surprised to learn the history of extra-terrestrial demonstrations of love. (Note: extra-terrestrial is hyphenated because I am not talking about aliens. Used this way, extra means "beyond" and "terrestrial" means the same as it does without either the hyphen or prefix "extra", which is "relating to the earth).

Out of This World

The current meaning of out of this world as surpassing or uber-marvelous dates to the late 1920s. Prior to that the term was used in a more religious sense to mean other-worldly as in not of this world.

As used today, the idiom means out-of-the-ordinary (as in extraordinary) in the most positive sense. Think awesome, amazing, fabulous, fantastic -- and then some.

Over the Moon

Over the Moon means to be extremely happy or so high on excitement (or love) that jumping or reaching the moon seems an easy feat. I’m sure you’re familiar with the nursery rhyme, Hey Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle in which an exceedingly happy cow does just that. What you may not know is that it was first printed in the late 1700s and dates back even further than that in oral traditions.

On Top of the World

Similarly, “On top of the world” means to feel that things could not be better; that you have reached the pinnacle, the mountaintop, the highest point. The first recorded usage of the term dates to the late 1600s, when it was used to refer to a position of the highest prestige or importance.

A Match Made in Heaven

The notion of “A match made in heaven” appears most explicitly in biblical literature in the Book of Tob’it, generally believed to have been written between 400 and 200 BCE. Tobiah and Sarah are brought together by God via the angel Raphael. God’s role in marriage appears earlier in Genesis and other books, but references to the role of the Deity in marriage and married life are most specific and straightforward in Tob’it.

Today, the phrase is used religiously and secularly to refer to two people who are so well-suited to each other that their relationship is likely to be happy and successful.

A Unique and Fun Gift for Your Very Own Venus

What a unique way to tell your sci-fi fan sweetheart she's your Queen from Venus, the Planet of Love!

The movie poster shown here is available in a range of sizes and variety of formats at

The film is a 1958 cult camp classic (try saying that three times fast!). Kitschy sets and costumes borrowed from other low-budget sci-fi films add to the film's tacky appeal.

It stars Zsa Zsa Gabor playing (or more accurately, striking poses as) a sexy scientist.

Eric Fleming is the leader of the astronauts forced to crash-land on the planet Venus, which is inhabited (and ruled) solely by women.
