Valentine’s Day happens every year, and yet the stress of figuring out what to get that special someone never gets easier. Maybe your significant other isn’t the romantic type, and you know that they won’t be impressed by flowers or chocolates; instead, something tech-related that they can get stuck into would be much more up their street.
If you’re struggling with what to get your tech-loving sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, read on for some of our favourite ideas – and they may even help you amp up the romance on the big day, too.
Subscription to their Favorite Streaming Site
Streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu have taken the entertainment world by storm in the past decade, but unfortunately, they can put a dent in your wallet. If your partner has been contemplating getting a membership for a new streaming site but they aren’t sure, they’ll definitely appreciate you buying it for them. Not only is it a gift they’ll genuinely use, but you’ll also prove that you’ve been listening!
You can also turn this gift into a date since the two of you can settle in for a romantic night with all of the new films on offer. On Valentine’s Day, you can even save yourself the “what should we watch” argument using this handy infographic from ExpressVPN, which will tell you exactly what film suits your current mood.
Smartwatches have exploded in popularity in the past few years and, with countless options from the Apple Watch to the FitBit, you’re bound to find one that’s perfect for your other half this Valentine’s Day.
It’s worth figuring out how your partner would use a smartwatch; for example, fitness fanatics will appreciate one that can monitor their heartbeat, sleep patterns and other levels. If they’d prefer to use it to easily access their notifications, you should consider a smartwatch that will sync up to their phone. Either way, any tech-head will absolutely appreciate this as a Valentine’s Day gift.
Your choice here will depend entirely on how your spouse prefers to listen to their music, podcasts, etc. If they work from home or like to play host to family get-togethers, they’ll likely appreciate a sturdy Bluetooth speaker that can handle all of their favourite music at full volume. Alternatively, headphones might be a better choice if they spend a lot of time outdoors or working in public spaces.
It’s worth asking your partner which they would prefer if you’re considering this Valentine’s Day present, because it will (hopefully) be something they’ll get use for years to come.
Overall, what makes a ‘romantic’ present is up to interpretation. Your tech-obsessed partner will likely appreciate these ideas a lot more than a night out. Their practicality also means that every time they use their new gadget, they’ll be reminded of your love for them.
