Choose Repair Over Roses

Valentine’s Day has long been celebrated as a day of love—and call us crazy, but there’s nothing we love more than repair. This Valentine’s Day, we’re choosing repair over roses. We’re hoping you will, too! And if you do, we’ll give you a shot at some seriously sweet prizes.

Here’s How to Win

Snap a picture (or take a video) of something you fixed for someone you love. Or take a selfie with your favorite partner in repair—romantic or not. Then share your repair love affair on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tag your post with the hashtag #RepairOverRoses. Be sure to mention @iFixit so we don’t miss your post. We’ll be admiring, sharing, and eventually picking six of our favorites as winners at the end of the month.

Enter as many times as you want! The more entries, the better. We’ll announce the winners on our blog on February 28th. Five fixers will win a Fix The World T-shirt and an Essential Electronics Toolkit, and one lucky fixer will win the special Valentine’s Fix-Box pictured below.

Really? That’s it?

That’s it! We’re looking for heartwarming posts that will make the world fall in love with fixing as much as we have. Bonus points for creativity—and singing—we love when people sing.

Need a little more inspiration? Take a look at last year’s #iFixitLovesRepair photo contest for some ideas.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hugs and Fixes,
