Gadgets For Your Valentine

If you're on the hunt for a great last-minute Valentine's Day gift, we've got you covered IF your valentine is a gadget lover. From unique smartphone cases, to useful connected devices, to high-tech wine openers and coffee brewers, our list has plenty of options for giving a gift with heart.

In the following slides, we've rounded up 10 Valentine's Day gifts worth considering for the techie in your life.

Aera Smart Fragrance

Giving a scented candle is just not the way to go in 2017. Aera's Smart Fragrance system has the special feature of being able to evenly distribute a scent throughout a room (of up to 2,000 square feet). And the strength of the fragrance can be "dialed in" and will remain consistent while in use, Aera says. The Aera Smart Fragrance system works with six different fragrances, including "Odyssey" (citrus and juniper) and "Curiosity" (magnolia and lotus flower).

The Aera Starter Set, which includes the device and a scent capsule, is priced at $189 on Aera's website.

Wally iPhone Wallet Case

Made by Distil Union, the Wally case is a leather iPhone protector with a twist--the case includes a secret wallet compartment. The leather pocket is geared toward holding important cards--up to four cards plus folded bills--and the cards are only revealed by tugging on a specially designed pull-tab. The case is also shock absorbent, available in several colors, and made for iPhone 6/6S, iPhone 6/6S Plus and iPhone 7/7 Plus.

The Wally iPhone Wallet Case is priced at $39.99 on Amazon.

Shibaful Case

Maybe the outdoors is more your valentine's thing. Described as the world's "first lawn iPhone case," the Shibaful case is made with fibers that look and feel a bit like the grass in a park. Produced by Japan-based Shibaful, the cases are created using electrostatic flocking technology, which aligns the fibers, and the case aims to put users more at ease when using their devices. The cases come in a variety of designs include a park-inspired, single-color design; shape designs; and a sport designs.

Shibaful cases are available on average for $40 to $45 on Amazon.

Coravin Model Two Wine System

This one is admittedly a splurge item, but it's for a good cause: a new, more enjoyable relationship with wine. For one thing, you'll never have to mess around with a wine opener again, as Coravin's system uses a thin needle to puncture the cork and pour the wine. The process also allows the cork to reseal afterward, which protects the remaining wine from oxidation so that it can be enjoyed later. Ultimately, the Coravin system means you can enjoy wine from multiple different bottles at a time.

The Coravin Model Two Wine System is priced at $299.95 on Coravin's website.

Amazon Kindle

The latest-generation Kindle, released last year, remains a slam-dunk Valentine's Day gift for the serious reader in your life. The e-reader includes new features such as the ability to export notes and highlights to email, and it's also 16 percent lighter (about one-third of a pound) and 11 percent thinner (0.36 of an inch) than the previous version. Notably, Amazon is offering the newest version at the same price point as the prior-generation Kindle.

The new Amazon Kindle is priced at $79.99 on Amazon.

Pearl Compact Mirror USB Battery

For your always on-the-go valentine, this smart take on a compact mirror could be a much-appreciated gift. Pearl's compact mirror is a three-and-a-half inch disc that's a half-inch thick. It comes with two mirrors, one of them 3x magnified. The magic is that the mirror doubles as a battery pack for iPhone, iPad and USB devices--with a sizable 3000mAh battery and a 2.1A USB charging port.

The Pearl Compact Mirror USB Battery is priced at $29.95 on Amazon.

Bonavita BV1900TS

Drip coffee makers may be a no-no for the coffee lover in your life, but more labor-intensive methods of making coffee are, well, labor intensive. Bonavita is changing that stereotype with the BV1900TS, which makes a better cup than the average drip machine by optimizing the brewing temperature and time and providing for uniform extraction. The eight-cup coffee maker has proven its merits with a certification by the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
The Bonavita BV1900TS is priced at $135.84 on Amazon.

Petnet SmartFeeder

If you're in a relationship with a pet owner, that means you aren't the only love of their life. To prove just how much you accept this fact, the Petnet SmartFeeder may be a great gift for your Valentine. Using an accompanying smartphone app, users determine the proper portion sizes (based on data about their pet) and create a feeding schedule. The SmartFeeder then automatically portions out the right amount of food on schedule. Users can also use the smartphone app to remotely dispense a meal, and Petnet offers an option of automatic deliveries of food to your home when supplies are running low.

The Petnet SmartFeeder is priced at $149 on Amazon.

SleepPhones Wireless Headphones

Most of the gifts on this list should endear you to your valentine, but giving the SleepPhones Wireless Headphones might make you their hero (if you aren't already). For anyone that has trouble sleeping, or that just longs for a better way to listen to audio in bed, SleepPhones Wireless offers a solution by hiding Bluetooth headphones inside a comfy headband. In short, it's the sort of gift that could be a true game-changer for your significant other.

The SleepPhones Wireless Headphones are priced at $99.95 on Amazon.

Mars Levitating Speaker

For the cosmic valentine in your life, the Mars levitating speaker may just be worth the hefty price tag. The speaker brings an other-worldly design with its UFO-shaped speaker driver, which "levitates" above a base station that houses a 3.75-inch subwoofer. The levitation effect is produced by tapping magnetic forces, and it's not just for looks--manufacturer Crazybaby says separating the speaker and base eliminates vibration and improves the audio quality.

Mars by Crazybaby is priced at $329 on Amazon.
