Feeling the pressure from your beloved Valentine around this time of the month is slightly common because you want to impress and not depress them and also do something that will leave a lasting impression. This obviously means that you have to get something classy, valuable and ideally something useful too.
Giving the gift of life, like flowers, is a great option for Valentine and for your better half and we have covered several flower services that offer worldwide shipping and same day delivery as well! But what if your special someone is into techie gifts and gizmos?
Since we are into tech ourselves, we decided to pen a few ideas that are worth the investment. Read below some of the best techie gifts for your valentine.
Tech Valentine Gifts
Saving Memories & Creating Moments
Snapping memories have become very common but most smartphones don’t get the clarity worthy enough for a hard copy development. So get your special someone an actual camera. We recommend the Canon Digital Camera which is WiFi and NFC enabled and comes with a 16 GB memory card. Its red in colour, which is quite sporty looking and ideal for a Valentine Gift. Of course, you can pick the Black or Blue color as well but its a great option to save memories properly! It has a 10x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer and captures 4K Ultra HD video.
HP Photo Printer
Getting pictures developed is not really a problem especially when you have an HP Sprocket Plus Instant Photo Printer. This portable photo printer is not very high-end, but gets your job done, the right way! It comes with 20 sticky-backed sheets to get you started off on the printing instantly. You can carry it along anywhere you wish to ebcause its lightweight. Just download the HP Sprocket app and connect your device via Bluetooth to this photo printer and start printing instantly.
Another great option for saving memories of your better half is Fujifilm Instax Mini. Why? Because its a camera and a photo printer, 2 in 1 combo kind of thing. So snap your pictures and get your hard copy instantly. Of course the photo is very small (think credit card size), but its instant. This camera is compact, has a selfie mirror in case you are into selfies. There are two shutter buttons for vertical and horizontal framing of images. You can even control the print finish with colour control buttons. This particular link we have for you gives you 10 sheet rainbow bundle for instant hard copy images. You can pick the colour your special someone loves more.
If camera is not what you are looking for… perhaps something in gaming then…
Xbox One Elite
This is the steroid, hardcore version of the regular Xbox controller, which is already a great device. Xbox One Elite will give you an unmatched level of customisation.
Every detail of Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is player-oriented, Microsoft did their homework. The device is entirely flawless, but it costs plenty, three times as much as a regular Xbox Wireless controller. Still, if you have the money, go for it, you will not regret it.
There is always Virtual Reality where gaming is concerned, perhaps invest in this if your better half values this category.
For the Love of Sound & Music
It doesn’t really matter if your sweetheart likes good music or not, whats important is that you have quality sound system. We will not be sharing any expensive items to enhance home audio but stick to personals, we recommend the JBL Flip 4 – Meet our favourite quality sound speaker system! Its available in 5-6 colours (with the option of Red also, wink wink), connects via Bluetooth, USB micro cable and 3.5mm audio cable and is … water proof. Go diving!
But wait, what if you want a special gift for your better half … like a wireless headphone?
Who hasn’t heard of the splash these Sony WH-1000XM4 are making in the market? In case you haven’t, these are phenomenal headphones and a great value add for your beloved this Valentine especially if they are into techie gifts with a special admiration for quality sound.
You get 3 colours to pick from, a special slashed price these days, 30 hours of playtime on a single charge, touch sensors, and of course the industry-leading noise cancelling with Dual Noise Sensor technology.
Sony’s over the ear headphones are a great hit with everyone who works from home, enjoys quality sound or is a gaming fanatic
Not into over the ear headphones? Prefer in-ear?
Powerbeats Pro Wireless
Consider getting Powerbeats Pro Wireless. This particular true wireless earbuds are not very pricey and has several colours to choose from (including pink and red). You get 25+ hours of battery life with the charging case. Powerbeats Pro gives you the luxury of operating play/skip and volume control on both ear pieces. This awesome techie gift idea is rated IPX4, which means they are resistant to sweat and water splashing from any direction.
Leaf Health Tracker
This one is for the ladies. The Leaf is a smart jewellery with an activity, sleep and reproductive health tracker embedded within. It measures the usual activity such as steps, calories burned, distance, etc. It measures sleep quality as well and includes a wakeup alarm. Meditation, stress and reproductive health tracking is what it does best though. It has guided meditation and tracks how you are doing in each session along with time spent. This directly ties into stress and reproductive health informing you how your meditation is impacting your stress, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, sleep and activity. Under the reproductive health umbrella, it tracks periods, fertility, ovulation, pregnancy, and includes a pill reminder. It has its own dedicated app for Android and iOS phones. It also connects wirelessly with Apple Health and Google Fit to sync all your data.
Valentine is not much of an event if you can’t enjoy the moment. So maybe you can invest in something you can both do together? Get a drone by Holy Stone. It may look like a Kids item, but isn’t really. The device features an HD camera, 6-Axis gyro RC Quadcopter for Kids with Headless Mode, one key return and an alarm for low voltage. It even includes a bonus Battery.
Portable Charger for iOS/Android
What is life without a smartphone? Here is a portable charger by Mophie which comes with two built-in cables for all smartphones supporting lightening cable and micro-USB cable. The integrated power indicator button on the side tells you the charging status and current battery life. With 4,000 mAH portable charger you can take care of both; Apple and micro USB devices easily during travel. If you are looking for something useful and under $100, then consider getting this special gift for your better half.
For that artist in your circle who owns Microsoft Studio, pair them up with this intuitive Surface Dial. Compatible with other devices such as Microsoft Surface Pros, Surface Books 2 and Surface Laptops, this device is mostly for those who work very closely with Adobe, Mental Canvas, Bluebeam, Sketchable, StaffPad, and more, so if anyone from your circle is a great fan, this Microsoft Surface Dial is a fantastic techie gift.
There are still people out there who prefer to use a mouse over laptop trackpad. They don’t want to let go of the trackpad but still want a great mouse with their computing device (myself included). So pair your friends with this amazing Surface Arc which is slim, light, and ready to travel all the time. The mouse features a full scroll plane for both horizontal and vertical scrolling. It has a bendable tail which is essentially the on/off switch for this device. It connects to the laptop via Bluetooth and runs on 2 AAA alkaline batteries that work up to 6 months!
