Now that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, we look at it as one more thoughtful opportunity to give a coveted gadget to that special someone. I love any excuse to give (or ahem, get) a tech gift. And it definitely has more longevity than flowers.
So in the spirit of the holiday, I’ve rounded-up some of our favorite Valentine’s tech gift ideas, all for less than $75, and all in a big, beautiful, bold red. Because while I do love the hearts that are everywhere on February 14th, red does double duty as a way to honor your love and affection, but also ensure your gift is something that gets put to good use all year long.
