The Gift Guide
Flowers and cuddling make great Valentine’s Day gifts, but sometimes it takes a gadget to get Cupid to draw back his bow. Here’s some inspiration.
If cameras get your special somebody’s heart fluttering, the Canon ELPH 110 HS (MSRP $229.99) is better than a dozen roses and a dinner date. It snaps clearer photos than just about any budget digicam out there, and with its replacement coming next month, it’s priced to move. The Sony NEX-F3 (MSRP $599.99) is even more romantic, with beautiful image quality and interchangeable lenses—and yes, it comes in pink.
Try not to get jealous, but a tablet will make your sweetheart fall in love at first swipe. The Apple iPad mini (MSRP $329) has the looks, but the Google Nexus 7 (MSRP $199.99) has the personality—it’s the best 7-inch tablet out there, and one of the cheapest too. You could also snuggle up next to a Kindle Fire (MSRP $199.99).
With fantastic sound and sharp looks, the Quincy Jones-endorsed AKG Q701 (MSRP $479.99) headphones will put a move on your Valentine’s heart. The V-Moda Crossfade M-100 (MSRP $299.99) allow a personal touch—ear-shield kits are available in several colors, and they can be custom laser-engraved with an image of your choice. If your money can’t buy that kind of love, the MEElectronics M6 headphones will whisper in his or her ear at a more reasonable price (MSRP $49.99).
Don’t forget the chocolates.
