7 great gizmos and gadgets for tech lovers
It seems like Christmas has barely finished and we are already well on the way toward Valentine’s Day — and a scramble to find a worthy gift for our significant other halves.
Let’s face it: it’s bloody hard shopping for a Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone, and just getting a cute card, some chocolates and flowers aren’t going to cut it these days. Instead, get your significant other – or even yourself – a brand new toy to play with as nothing brings out your tech appeal like a new gizmo or gadget to spoil your loved one with.
However, with technology evolving at a rapid rate, it’s admittedly hard to keep up with all things tech that your better half deserves. So, to save you from having to stress out on what to get someone this Valentine’s Day, the Net X Computers team has scoured the realm to shortlist the top 7 tech gift ideas across different budgets, and every one of them will show your partner how special they are to you.
1. Digital Photo Frame
There are high-tech options out there that change the traditional, static photo frame into something more interactive and able to show more than just one snapshot of a favorite memory, place, or person. You may want to consider the NIX digital photo frame for a gift this Valentine’s Day; not only is it available in 8- to 15.6-inch models, but the plug-and-play photo frame is also controllable via motion or remote control and can be used in both portrait and landscape settings.
2. Smart oil diffuser
Candles and scents can help create a relaxing environment at home. If your other half agrees with this statement, a smart oil diffuser could be a valued gift this Valentine’s Day. Check out Maxcio’s Wi-Fi oil diffuser, available on Amazon. It is able to diffuse up to 400ml of oil in your home on either low or high settings. You can also schedule the device via a mobile application. As well as the diffuser has controllable LED lights as an accompanying touch.
Technology doesn’t automatically have to be unromantic, and the Lovebox proves it. This cute gift idea is a digital message system which allows you to use a mobile app to send a note, message, or drawing remotely to the box. The heart on the front spins when a message is received.
4. SNIPPERCLIPS PLUS
Snipperclips is a Nintendo Switch game all about communication. Can you work with your partner to make the perfect shapes to complete the puzzles? Or will you fall to infighting as you snip each other away into nothingness? Snipperclips will help you put your relationship to the test — in adorable puzzles that are still simple enough for even the least skilled player to enjoy.
5. A BEGINNER LOCKPICK KIT
Look, there’s nothing suspicious about cozying up with your partner and picking some locks. It’s a lesson in patience and persistence. You never know when it will help you break into your own house when you forget the keys.
6. Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
Anyone who enjoys reading or audiobooks can now take advantage of portable readers. That are able to store thousands of books rather than lug about physical book copies. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite remains a popular choice. The lightweight e-reader comes with a screen designed to reduce glare in comparison to traditional tablets and can be used to load up e-books, magazines, and audiobooks.
7. Skullcandy wireless earbuds
An affordable gift this Valentine’s Day for music lovers is the Skullcandy Sesh. A pair of wireless earbuds in three different colors. These budget-friendly earbuds come in a case containing a rechargeable battery and once paired with your mobile device, you can expect up to 10 hours of playback.
