For some people in our lives, there is no better way to say “I love you” on Valentine’s Day than with an awesome new gadget. (Of course for some people, jewelry is preferable, but for them we have Cool Mom Picks.)
For those gadget fans in your romantic life, here are some gorgeous red gadgets that will outlast a bouquet of red roses and trump a cheap box of chocolate any day.
If your sweetie is into music and wants to look super cool listening to it, the Beats by Dr. Dre for Monster headphones (above) are a perfect choice. We love them for their sound quality, built-in mic and hands-free calling features, but even better, a portion of the profits goes straight to (PRODUCT) Red, to fight AIDS in Africa. (At our affiliate Amazon, $199)
Any music fan will love the Jawbone Jambox, one of our very favorite portable speakers. It’s amazing that something that fits into the palm of your hand can emit such powerful sound. And the fact that it connects wirelessly via Bluetooth makes it all the more awesome. (Amazon, $179.99)
Sometimes you just have to go big or go home. Like with a brand new laptop, in red, of course. The Sony Vaio is a great choice for organizing, well, everything in your life. It comes with a 200GB hard drive, CD/DVD burner, a built-in webcam and 4.5 hours of battery life. On top of that, you also get a cute red carrying case and a Dooney & Burke heart keychain. If that doesn’t say Valentine’s Day, I don’t know what does. (Sony, $999)
If it’s time to update that clunky original iPod and replace it with a much smaller, sleeker and red Nano, this is the perfect occasion. Especially with the free personalized engraving option on back and the support for (PRODUCT) Red. The new version plays for an unbelievable 24 hours when fully charged and is a great little accessory for any music lover. (Apple store, prices start at $129.)
Photo pros and amateurs alike will find many things to love on the Sony Cybershot. We love it for its portability, auto settings, and of course, photo quality. Yes, we know you love your smartphone for taking pictures, but if you’re looking to step up the quality with a whopping 16 megapixels and a phenomenal zoom, this camera is a great, affordable choice. (Sony, $149) -Jeana
