One of the most difficult people to buy gifts for on Valentine’s Day are the techies. It’s too normal to buy chocolates and a card, but too expensive to up and buy the new iPad. And with so many new products coming out every week, how can you possibly get something that’s both meaningful and long-lasting for your Valentine? Here are 10 ideas to make your Valentine’s Day fun this year using technology:


1. Do a SCVNGR Hunt

Put up pictures, e-cards, videos and other memorable moments on the web by creating a webpage. Not very time intensive if you know what you’re doing, GoDaddy is a great place for one-stop domain names and hosting services. Or try using mobile.me (an apple service) to get creative with domain names, like “youlove.me”. Other kinds of top level domains like “.us” are great for getting fun with domain names.

Games like Zumba fitness for Kinect and Wii are great for couples learning how to salsa dance. Keep your Valentines night active! (zumbafitness.com)


It’s easy to keep to the mundane dinner and a movie on Valentine’s Day. So try spicing it up with staying a bit more active and also using a gaming console. For those unfamiliar with Zumba, it’s technically a workout but inspired by salsa dancing. Zumba fitness can be used on Wii or Kinect, so try it at home and then take both of your new-found dance skills to the club!


6. FOR HER: Let Her Jewelry Be Her Notification

So get him a pair of cufflinks that not only have 2GB of storgae, but also act as a wifi hotspot! Clean and elegant, but way cool and useful! He’ll never be out of touch or out of reach again.


8. Monthly Goodies

    on the web I found this site as a best web page for most up-to-date updates.

  2. Thanks , I’ve recently been searching for info approximately this topic for
    ages and yours is the greatest I have found out till now.
    But, what concerning the bottom line? Are you certain about the supply?

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and
    extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!
