Here are our top picks for Valentine’s 2024:
Oculus Quest 2
For those who enjoy gaming, the Oculus Quest 2 stands out as a sophisticated Valentine’s Day present. It works well with the latest PC and phone games that support virtual reality. Equipped with controllers for each hand, this device offers an extensive library of games accessible through the Quest library. Setting it up is a breeze with a simple smartphone app.
The headset has a remarkable display, featuring double the pixel count compared to its predecessor, the Quest VR headset. However, it’s important to note that it forces you to use Facebook, and glasses-wearers might find it tricky.
Fujifilm Instax Mini Link 2
The Instax Mini Link 2 stands out as a compact photo printer made for the on-the-go crowd, easily fitting into your pocket. Print your smartphone snapshots onto credit card-sized glossy Instax prints, capturing memories in tangible form.
It’s not limited to photos; even moments caught on video can be sent to the Instax Mini Link 2 for printing. The accompanying app offers options to resize, apply filters, and doodle on your images. Alternatively, it’s a great choice for swiftly printing smartphone pictures without additional fuss.
It’s a perfect gift for a partner who constantly captures moments on their phone and cherishes mementos of their favorite memories.
Philips Hue Iris
The Philips Hue Iris redefines the concept of a smart table lamp with its stunning design and versatile lighting options. From a bright white to a warm yellow glow, or the option to infuse vibrant colors into the room, all effortlessly controlled through the Philips Hue app. This table lamp becomes a unique addition, allowing you to set the perfect mood for any occasion, be it a cozy Netflix night or a romantic dinner for two.
For people who find solace in the comfort of home, the Philips Hue table lamp adds a touch of sophistication.
DJI Mini SE
Who says toys are only for kids? Perfect for tech lovers, the DJI Mini SE drone is a great Valentine’s Day gift. It’s small, weighing just 249 grams, so you can fly it without permission in the US and Canada. Despite its size, it has a good 2.7K camera and can fly for 30 minutes on a full charge.
Whether it’s bad weather or high altitudes, the DJI Mini SE handles it all. It can fly up to 4000m and handle winds up to 40 kmph. Content creators will like the free video templates on the DJI Fly app, although the setup process could be easier.
Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer
Considered the best air fryer overall, the Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 does more than fry; it can roast, bake, grill, reheat, and dehydrate. With a 5.7L basket and a built-in window with a light, it’s easy to keep an eye on your food. It’s powerful, reliable, and perfect for those who love to cook and entertain.
Kobo Clara 2E
For the bookworm in your life, the Kobo Clara 2E makes sure they can carry their beloved novels wherever they go. This compact e-reader stands out as one of the best choices, featuring a clear, responsive 6-inch screen and support for audiobooks. It’s even waterproof. Kobo’s OverDrive support allows users to borrow books from their local library’s digital collection.
It’s great for someone with a growing collection that’s become challenging to carry or store. Gift them a compact e-reader capable of holding hundreds of books on one device.
JBL Flip 5
In the audio devices market, JBL has left a significant mark, and the JBL Flip 5 continues this trend. This speaker, designed for your boyfriend, impresses not only with its looks but also with its IP7X water-resistant feature. Despite its small size, it delivers remarkable volume and clarity.
Portable enough to accompany you everywhere, the Flip 5 includes a protective BOOMPH speaker case for added durability. However, it falls short in terms of battery life, requiring a recharge after 3 to 4 hours of intensive use.
While a Nintendo Switch might seem like a pricey Valentine’s Day gift, it offers a unique opportunity for shared enjoyment. The console comes with a pair of controllers, and numerous multiplayer games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Bros. can be played with just one Joy-Con each. Whether in multiplayer or single-player mode, the Nintendo Switch provides versatile entertainment.
It is ideal for couples seeking a lighthearted escape from stress.
The Rocketbook Core redefines the traditional notebook by featuring reusable pages akin to a whiteboard. Using a specialized pen, you can write and draw, then scan the pages with the Rocketbook app to create digital copies. A drop of water clears the pages for reuse.
It’s great for environmentally conscious individuals who appreciate minimalism. Perfect for those heading to university or anyone who values a clutter-free note-taking experience.
LC-dolida Sleep Headphones
In our fast-paced world, prioritizing sleep is often a challenge, leading to issues like insomnia or restless nights. If your boyfriend faces such challenges, the LC-dolida sleep headphones could offer a solution.
These headphones are thoughtfully designed to exert zero pressure on the eyes, providing comfort. Additionally, the built-in speakers create a serene ambiance with high-quality sound.
With a decent battery life of 8 hours after just an hour of charging, these headphones ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. It’s important to note that they don’t offer noise cancellation, so if that’s a priority, these may not be the ideal choice.
Ember Smart Mug
For those who despise cold drinks but often forget to sip amidst work, the Ember Smart Mug is a game-changer.
Connected to a heating coaster, this mug allows you to set and customize beverage temperatures through the Ember app on your iPhone. With a battery life of up to 1.5 hours on a single charge, it ensures your drink stays at the perfect temperature.
For people who want to enjoy a warm beverage without the worry of it turning cold during a focused work session, this is for you.
Smartphone Screen Magnifier
No need to limit movie nights to indoors. This smartphone screen magnifier brings the cinema experience to camping or trekking. With a 14-inch screen magnifying your phone 2-4 times and a 3D acrylic lens for a clear display, it’s a handy accessory. It is great for mobile gaming, but be aware that it can be reflective in well-lit rooms.
Fitbit Charge 6
Traditional watches are nice, but the Fitbit Charge 6 goes beyond. It tells time and tracks health metrics. With an FDA-cleared EKG for Google Wallet purchases and Google Maps directions, it’s a practical $149.99+ gift.
This is a quirky musical instrument with an eighth-note-shaped body and a silly face. It produces unique, off-key sounds but can also play real songs by sliding fingers on its stem. Priced at $39.99+, it’s a fun musical addition.
Ugreen 2-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Station
This versatile charger from Ugreen isn’t just for powering up MagSafe-compatible phones with up to 7.5W of power. Its adjustable charging stand also serves as a handy way to charge an iPhone and a pair of AirPods simultaneously. Plus, it’s a great companion for those using iOS 17, turning your phone into a desk-friendly widget machine. It is priced at $29.19+.
Viktor Jurgen Neck Massage Pillow
For anyone with a desk job that leaves them with a stiff neck by the end of the day, the Viktor Jurgen Neck Massage Pillow is a lifesaver. Its nodes target tight muscles and knots, promoting better blood circulation and more restful sleep. With a heating mechanism for warmth and comfort, it’s perfect for use at home, in the office, or even in the car. Just be cautious not to use it while lying down, as the rolling knobs could cause discomfort if too much pressure is applied.
