Reading Time: 3 minutes

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and what better way to show your significant other some love than by showering them with some cool gifts?! Skip the flowers and the chocolate this year – those are played out. We’ve got some tricks up our sleeve that’ll have have your main squeeze gushing about how creative your are.

Digital Projectors

So it’s date night and you’re fresh out of ideas… or maybe it’s too cold out! Why not cuddle up with your loved one and make it a movie night? The latest digital projectors carry some very impressive stats for a fraction of HD televisions. Also, many of these projectors create image screens up to 300 inches!

You get the quality of an HD tv with the portability of any other mobile device, and you save a few hundred bucks while doing it. Additionally, recent digital projectors work with various different inputs including cable TV, HDMI, Firesticks, gaming consoles, or even your smartphone. We recommend the ViewSonic PJD7828HDL, but there are tons of great options out there. A quality projector will cost you at least $200 but imagine all the props you’ll get when you also build a romantic couch fort.

Digital Chalkboards

We all love receiving love notes, cards, and displays of affection – maybe we should be sharing them more often! Digital chalkboards are one of the Valentines Day gift ideas that bring us back to simpler times…with a bit of a high-tech twist. Digital chalkboards act just like their traditional counterparts, except without all of the mess. Having one of these around your home is a great way to sneak in some kind words to your significant other.

Ringly Smart Bracelets

Are you looking for Valentines Day gift ideas for the fitness-maven but ‘fashionably-conscious’ lover in your life? The Ringly Smart Bracelets offer a dazzling combination of utility and style that work well with any outfit. Also, if you’re significant other is struggling with meeting their New Year’s fitness goals – this gift comes at a perfect time to get them back on track… without being too forward about it.

Mobile Photo Printers

Getting ready for a romantic Valentines Day date night? Many of us enjoy taking selfies with love ones, but why not take it a step further and create a collage of those memories? One of our favorite Valentines Day gift ideas is mobile photo printers.

They work wirelessly and you can carry them just about anywhere you go so you can print directly from Bluetooth devices and social media. Bonus? Some photo printers use peel and stick backing for easy decorating and last-minute gift-giving. The Canon IVY offers a solid combination of quality and budget-friendliness at just $99 over at Amazon. LOVE!

Vinyl Players

Did you and your significant other bond over a silly song? Vinyl is always a solid gift idea for a music lover. Our preferred choice is the Audio Technica AT-LP120 Turntable. With three playback speeds and cast aluminum construction – this thing has everything you need to impress your partner. Also, with its built-in Bluetooth connectivity… play your tunes outdoors so even your neighbors get to enjoy (or dread depending on their taste).

Take a trip down memory lane while listening to your old favorites together, or take advantage of its USB and PC capabilities to digitize your albums! At $300, this makes a gift worth protecting with an insurance plan to keep you jamming out together for years.
