Blackberry Torch 9800

Want your valentine to literally carry a torch for you? Then wrap up Research In Motion’s Blackberry Torch 9800 smartphone, in red of course. The Torch 9800, available from AT&T, includes 8 GB of memory, expandable to 32 GB with a MicroSD card; a 5-megapixel camera and battery life that supports nearly 6 hours of talk time, for all of those late-night sweet nothings.

Monster Beats By Dr. Dre Solo HD (Product)RED

If your valentine is also a music-lover, then Monster’s Beats By Dr. Dre headphones make the perfect gift. The headphones promise kicking high-def sound quality with a tri-fold design that makes them pretty portable. The Solo HD line also includes Monstor ControlTalk for Apple iPod playback control. Plus if you buy the special (Product)RED version, part of the profits go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa, a humanitarian move sure to warm your valentine’s heart.

Dell Inspiron 17R Laptop

Dell’s Inspiron 17R Laptop sports a 17.3-inch widescreen HD display, an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor and a 1.3-megapixel Webcam so you and your valentine can video chat even when you’re apart. Shell out for the optional ATI Mobility Radeon HD graphics card to give it a little more kick and the optional 9-cell battery, which provides up to 7 hours and 20 minutes of battery life. And yes, pick the Tomato Red model.

Simplism Leather Flip Case For iPad

Apple iPads unfortunately do not come in red (Hear that, Steve Jobs?). But luckily a plethora of iPad cases do, like Simplism’s Leather Flip Case For iPad, which provides protection for the device plus a little elegance for whoever’s carrying it. It also includes some pockets for organizing important documents. And it comes in Deep Red, like your love.

Belkin USB Mobile Retractable Mouse

For a valentine on the go, Belkin’s USB Mobile Retractable Mouse might be just the thing. And no messy cable to get tangled up when it’s thrown into a laptop bag. Go with the red model, and your valentine will think of you with every click.

Nikon Coolpix P500

Nikon’s new Coolpix P500 point-and-shoot digital camera offers not just zoom but super zoom with its 36x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, which is the widest and longest zoom ever seen in the Coolpix line, the company says. The 12.1-megapixel camera also packs in image stabilization and HD video capabilities. It doesn’t ship until the end of February, but this is one I.O.U that will definitely get you an ’I love you.’

Jawbone Jambox Wireless Speaker

Jawbone’s nifty little Jambox provides high-fidelity wireless audio in a cool little package. This portable speaker offers 85 decibels from the palm of your valentine’s hand, a sound level that puts it somewhere in between a motorcycle and a rock concert, the company says. It’s also a pretty smart cookie: Sync it with Jawbone’s MyTalk online platform to download apps, get upgrades and add personalization. Put on some slow songs and dance the night away.

Whether your valentine is a guy or a gal, Mobile Edge’s Eco Messenger Bag is both stylin’ and functional.
