Valentine's day is approaching, and this is the perfect opportunity to show your partner how much you love him. When you share the same passions then it could be easy to know what to get but new things always appear on the market, and you might not know about them.
We know how difficult it sometimes is to find the right gift, so here is us helping you out with some ideas we consider perfect for the occasion so that you can impress your valentine with your thoughtfulness.
Catchall: A Handmade Stand for Everything
The things that you need nearby aren't always the same, but due to the creative way in which this stand was designed, you can always find a good use for it. The headphones, keys, watch, charging phone or wallet all have great places to rest on and the plywood used is of the highest quality, sanded smooth to make sure that nothing is damaged after being placed here. You can get it here.
Rover 2.0 App-Controlled Wireless Spy Tank
No matter their age, men like toys and gadgets so if you find one that has some good uses too then you are sure to impress. This spy tank can be operated through an Apple or Android phone or tablet and you can record video and sound which can even be streamed or uploaded to Facebook or Youtube. Careful when trying it outdoors though because rain might cause some problems to it.
Instant Photo Prints for iPhone
If your loved one has an iPhone and likes to take a lot of pictures, then this instant photo print might come in handy. It's a mobile printer that you can take with you anywhere so if you are planning a vacation then this might be the ideal gift. You don't even need ink cartridges since the paper it comes with has everything already on it, so it's easy to use for anyone.
If you are looking to make someone happy and have a large budget at your disposal, then the amazing Oculus Rift virtual reality set is the perfect gadget for the job. You only need a (quite powerful) PC to make it work, and your gamer boyfriend will then have access to one of the most stunning pieces of technology that is currently available!
Withings Activite Steel Watch
More than a simple timepiece, this watch will keep track of your activity while running or swimming, telling you a number of calories burned and while you sleep it will monitor the periods of light and deep sleep making it a beautiful gift for a person that is active or interested in their overall health.
Star Wars Force Band
This is a great toy for a teenager or someone younger that has a passion for Star Wars since it makes the Force seem closer to you. You get a wristband that can control a small BB-8 Droid and there are also two other modes for combat training and training with the Force. If your boyfriend is a Star Wars enthusiast, then this can be an excellent choice.
Lumo Lift Posture Coach
Modern day people are a lot more sedentary than in the past, and since most of us work at a desk back, pains have become more and more frequent. This small device is meant to remind you to correct your posture, and it does this by wearing it below the collarbone with a smartphone nearby to vibrate when you have to pay attention. It might seem like a weird gift at first, but if your loved one has back problems, then they will grow to love this little gadget after a few days of getting accustomed.
Anti-Theft USB Power Bank Business Backpack
The utilities of such a gift stand out from the title, and it has safe compartments for your wallet, phone, documents and other gadgets while also providing a power bank to keep them charged all the time! This is probably close to becoming the ultimate backpack, and if you have a boyfriend who is always on the move, then this will certainly be something they will appreciate.
WowWee Coder MiP Toy Robot
This programmable robot can do different actions, and it maintains balance so it is bound to impress anyone who sees it. The tray it comes with can hold different objects, and the robot can carry them around the house for you even if you have ramps (stairs are a problem, though). You can control it with an iPhone or iPad, and it has a light in front to let you know the mode it is in. They say that this is perfect for ages 8 to 88 and we have to agree.
Arccos On-Course Stats Tracking System
If golf is your valentine's sport then Arccos is something they will definitely appreciate since it is the best way to analyze and improve their performance at the game. You can get instant information about your shots on a smartphone and then at home you can check out a more detailed analysis of all your shots. You don't have to download any track data since the GPS technology takes care of that and if you are a golfer, this is certainly an ideal product to have.
