Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Techie-Better-Half
Now that we are done and dusted talking about dating apps, let’s move to the second step -making your techie-Valentine happy with the perfect gift this year. Here’s our guide to shiny, little objects to shop for this year.
If your partner is into fitness, look no further than the FitBit range of smart-wearables. From motion trackers to smartwatches, the company offers it all. The most recent addition to its family is FitBit Alta, a chic fitness tracker that can be personalised to suit your style. All FitBit wearables can be bought off Amazon or the official FitBit online store.
How about spreading some VR-love this Valentine’s? Check out Samsung’s virtual reality head-set called Gear VR launched in India just last month. The Samsung Gear VR Headset is priced at Rs.8,200. Gear VR is available through the company’s retail stores, as well as through Flipkart.
This is the perfect gift for all music aficionados. The best part about gifting headphones is that you will always find one that suits your budget. From Skullcandy to Sennheiser to an endless list of brands and designs and colours -you really are spoilt for choice here.
Talking about music lovers, here’s something else to add to the list. Portable speakers are by far one of the best things that happened to music. Connect them to your laptop or smartphone with Bluetooth or choose a bright, colourful AUX chord, which barely cost a dime, and voila! A nice portable speaker would easily fit within Rs. 2000.
If your partner finds it hard to stay off their smartphone (no matter how much it may have annoyed you in the past), it’s time to let them know you’re not only willing to accept this trait of theirs, but also encourage it by gifting them a powerbank. This will ensure their phone never runs out of juice again while they never run out of love for you. A decent powerbank would fall under Rs.2000.
After music, it’s time to talk about photography and GoPro is the next big thing on this front. GoPro is the perfect answer to extreme-action videography. If you’ve been looking for a GoPro camera that doesn’t pinch your pocket and yet has some important features such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, your answer lies in the GoPro Hero+ priced at $199.99 (Rs. 13,200 approx).
Kindle is the perfect gift for the bookworm in our lives . Ask any bibliophile and they would agree without a second thought how this is the best technological development ever. You could narrow down your choices between the basic, entry level variant or the back-lit Paperwhite. There is also a white colour option you could go for if a black Kindle is too mainstream for you.
Yes, yes, this is not exactly a gadget and therefore does not belong in this list, but Netfilx just arrived in the country and we cannot stop talking about it. If all else fails and there is absolutely nothing you can come up with -just gift your partner a Netflix subscription – an epicly entertaining gift which is also easy on the pocket.
