Here are some gadgets you can use for Valentine's Day. They will make great gifts or help you when planning your Valentine's date or party.

You might be scrambling to get last minute Valentine’s Day Gifts or to plan the special day. As usual I have rounded up some tech gifts you can gift your Valentine or use to help plan for the special day (and to use after).

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (Pink)

Valentine's Day Gift and Prep Guide - Tech Edition - Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge

I raved about the Galaxy S7 Edge in my reviews, and it’s still one of the best phones out there. This beautiful looking phone boasts a great camera, water-resistant build, curved edges (that serve as a second screen). The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge also have expandable memory. It comes in different colors (yes, it matters!) Black, Onyx Silver Titanium, Gold Platinum, Blue Coral. If the S7 Edge is not for you, you can go with the regular S7. Prices vary for the carriers.

Logitech UE Boom 2 Wireless Speaker

Valentine's Day Gift and Prep Guide - Tech Edition - UE Boom 2

If you’re planning a picnic or any event outdoors, you may want to pick up one of these wireless speakers to set the mood. I suggest getting it in red or pink t(“cherrybomb” colorway) to help with the Valentine’s Day theme. You can use the UE Boom app to control the speaker which is dope. If you’re in a place that requires more sound, you can pair 2 or more speakers together.

iRobot Braava Jet

Valentine's Day Gift and Prep Guide - Tech Edition - Braava Jet iRobot

If you’re preparing your apartment for the big day, the Braava Jet Mop from iRobot might be of help. With 3 different pads, the Braava Jet can help tackle any cleaning job (wet mopping, damp sweeping, or dry sweeping). while you get ready for the big day. It’s made to clean hard floors. It’s also small enough to get into small places like under cabinets and corners. It leaves your floors with a clean scent and you can just throw the pad away when done.  Set the mood, and get dressed up while the Braava Jet cleans. Not a bad idea, huh? Of course it comes in handy on other days as well. The Braava Jet won’t break your pockets at $199.

NixPlay Iris Wifi Digital Frame

Valentine's Day Gift and Prep Guide - Tech Edition - Nixplay Iris Wifi Digital Frame

I think you can get major points with this gift. Nixplay has a variety of frames. The Nixplay Iris is a wifi digital frame. It has great technology but looks like a classic frame. What’s cool about it is how it allows you to display pictures. You can create playlists, you can send pictures from your phone to view instantly, and it brightens and dims to display pictures in the best light level. The display is 8 inches and you can place it in landscape or portrait mode.  Create a playlist of romantic memories for your Valentine. If you can try and sync it to “your song”,; even better. You can get the Nixplay Iris digital frame in 3 finishes: Peach Copper, Silver and Burnished Bronze.

Flowers and Chocolate

Well this is an obvious one. But if you decide to pick the flowers up yourself, and if you get the flower arrangements early you can definitely save some time and money. Use apps like Google Goals, Google Maps, and 1800-Flowers to plan around heavy traffic and arrange to pick up your bouquet(s) of flowers.

The same could be done for chocolate. Picking up the chocolates yourself, or creating your own arrangement can make it easier. I’ve heard stories of the flower and chocolate getting delivered way too late. Valentine’s Day is such a busy day, you may not want to take the risk of relying on delivery.
