Flowers and chocolates are sweet. But they do not last long. So instead of flowers or chocolates, why not give something that last longer on this valentine's day.. a useful cool gadget would be a good choice. Considering the fact that flowers and chocolates are the the most common type of valentine gifts that girls receive all the time, there are high chances that they feel more excited when they receive a cool gadget as valentine gift.
But gadgets are expensive, aren't they? Not exactly. Here's an article from Retrovo that highlights some possible electronic gifts for the Valentines: Best Valentine's Day Gadget Gifts. The gadget with lowest price is only $16 (a digital photo keychain - Coby DP 151). And it can be a great surprise for her if you put in some old photos with sweet memories together into the photo keychain. Of course if you would like to spend more money to impress your girl friend, get an Apple Macbook Air for her. There's no need to do anything extra, like you would have done for Coby DP 151.. and she will still be very impressed :P.
Apple iPod with engraving is also another great choice. Read my previous post about cool iPod stuff for Valentine's day.. Or if your girl friend is one of those who has a very bad sense of direction, Garmin Forerunner 205 is a GPS device that she can wear like a wristwatch.
While the article highlights a few electronic gadgets which could be great choices for Valentine's day gifts, there are certainly more choices than that. You may also check out my previous post on Cool Christmas Gifts 2008, or use Google search to get more ideas.
