Valentine’s day is around the corner and expectations are high as usual, especially if you are in love. #TechTuesday got us putting together a list of options you could choose from to gift a tech-lover.
Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch- there are plenty of smartwatches out there, but the Gear S3 in is stylish and sleek. It has an IP68 water-resistance rating, works with Samsung Pay, receives calls and texts, and does more directly via Bluetooth — all while still looking like a regular watch.
A smart speaker- let Alexa do everything for you. Amazon’s Echo is a smart speaker that can play favorite love songs, answer trivia questions, play fun games with friends, read recipes, and so much more. It also sounds great as a speaker and works with smart home devices.
The alternative of this would be the iHome Flask-Shaped Speaker-while you can’t actually put alcohol into the iBT12 iHome speaker (goes for about KES 5000), it’s a product any guy would enjoy. It is Bluetooth-enabled and includes a leather-style case for on-the-go use.
A pair of wireless headphones- some companies like Bang & Olfusen make some of the most beautiful headphones you can buy. The H4 over-ear wireless headphones are extremely comfortable, attractive, and great sounding. These aren’t big, ugly black headphones someone can be embarrassed to wear.
Core Lens Set– If he’s looking to improve his smartphone photography, start with Olloclip’s Core Lens Set (KES10,000) for the iPhone 7/8s and 7/8s Plus. The set includes improved fish-eye, superwide, and 15x macro options. It also easily attaches to either the front- or rear-facing camera and comes complete with a wearable pendant stand that opens to a pocket-size tripod.
An instant camera-Is there anything more fun than an instant camera?This a perfect gift for her this Valentine’s day. Fujifilm’s Instax Mini 9 is a fabulous old-school camera that prints photos as soon as they’re taken. It even has a selfie mirror so your leading lady always looks her best.
A wallet or purse that will charge his/her phone- there’s nothing worse than running out of battery and being stuck with a dead phone. You could try brands like Mighty Purse .This company makes wristlets, clutches, purses, and tote bags with battery packs insider for quickly charging any phone on the go. You can choose from tons of fun colors and styles.
An e-reader with tons of e-books- there’s nothing better than snuggling up with a good book when it gets cold outside. Some brands offer the best of e-readers, and your S/O would never buy it for themselves, so go on, splurge a little.If he/she’s a total bookworm who makes her way through multiple novels a month, you can buy this or even subscribe for books for them to feed their habit.
