Valentine's Day is right around the corner and finding the right gift, especially if the love of your life is a techie, can be challenging as they'd likely rather play with a new gadget than enjoy a box of fancy chocolates.
So to help all our readers facing this challenge, Tech Times pulled together a list of potential Valentine gift ideas that should ensure the big love day is a happy day for both the giver and the recipient.
1. High-Tech Jewelry
Let's face it. You can't miss with jewelry on Valentine's Day and thankfully some innovative jewelry makers offer accessories boasting a bit of tech spice.
In partnership with Opening Ceremony, Intel is selling a smart bracelet called Mica, which is gem-encrusted and features a curved sapphire touchscreen. Not only snazzy, it's practical for the techie as users can check emails, text messages and even read Yelp reviews. It won't come cheap, however, coming with a price tag of $495.
2. Red Beats By Dre Pill 2.0
Does your love enjoy music, but not the messy wires and cables that traditionally come with speakers and acoustic peripherals? Well, the Beats by Dre Pill may just be the perfect gift.
The Beats by Dre Pill allows users to pair and stream music from up to 30 feet away through Bluetooth. It features a rechargeable battery that lasts up to seven hours, and the red version is perfect for Valentine's Day.
3. Shout Custom iPad Case
Want to make your gift a little more personal this year? Could your techie use a new case for their iPhone or iPad?
These cases by Shout allow users to upload their own designs and customize them to look exactly the way they want. Valentine's Day ideas include an abundance of love hearts or a picture of the two of you together. What says love more than an iPhone case depicting two people in love?
4. The "I Love You More Than Video Games" Gift Box
Does your significant other sometimes tell you that they believe you're more into tech than you are into them? Before that issue gets out of control, it's time to ensure your beloved knows they are more important than that game you've been playing for 13 hours straight. This gift box is actually designed specifically for that potential relationship situation. It features several techie gifts that are video-game themed, including Pac-Man candy, PlayStation PSP sour-candy and Donkey Kong "I Love You" gum. It's sweets for the sweetie while acknowledging the jealousy that the love of technology can ignite in a relationship.
5. The "You Are The CSS to my HTML Mug"
Are you and your significant other into coding? Do you struggle to find the best way to say how much they mean to you but just can't get the coding right? This mug is the perfect tech-head way to say "you complete me." Plus, it's an all-around great mug!
6. QR Code Jewelry
While QR codes might not seem romantic (you know, those quick response matrix barcodes that can carry tons of information), you can certainly instill pretty romantic messages. Not only that, but you can also customize them to make them a little more personal to your sweetheart.
