Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And the pressure of pulling everything off just right. From setting the mood to picking a nice restaurant and choosing a thoughtful gift, there’s a lot to figure out!

Being a provider of high-speed fiber internet, your neighbors at NHTC know that staying connected to that special someone is a huge part of the human experience. And Valentine’s Day is an ideal time to demonstrate that to your sweetheart.

While we can’t help you choose a romantic spot for dinner, we can recommend some really cool smart tech and related devices that could make the perfect gift—and help show that you put some time and effort into your Valentine’s Day present this year. After all, it wouldn’t be “smart” to get caught without a tech-savvy and thoughtful gift this year, would it?

Below we highlight six of our favorite smart gift ideas for Valentine’s Day this year. We bet any of them will put a smile on your valentine’s face this February 14th!

  1. Smart Digital Picture Frame

We begin our list with a wonderful way to show your valentine how much you care about them—literally! A smart picture frame can display digital pictures in an attractive frame that you can place anywhere in your home.

We love the Dragon Touch 10-Inch Digital Picture Frame for its competitive pricing, Wi-Fi connectivity (which makes it simple to share photos), and large screen. In addition, its storage capacity is a whopping 16-gigs, making it easy to store and show off loads of your favorite shots with your valentine.

  1. Smart Mug

Is there a better way to show your significant other how much you adore them than with a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning?

And a smart mug takes an ordinary cup of hot coffee or cocoa to the next level! Smart mugs, like the Ember Smart Mug 2, help keep your drink warmer longer—even up to an hour and a half after you’ve brewed it.

It can keep beverages to temperatures around 120 to 140 degrees. The Ember Smart Mug 2 can connect to and be controlled by your smart phone through its app, where you can set a desired temperature.

Keep in mind, though, that the battery life drops after about 90 minutes of continuous use before needing recharging.

  1. Smart Phone Cup Holder for the Car

For your valentine’s daily commute, consider giving them a smartphone cup holder to keep their device within safe reach at all times. The WeatherTech CupFone Cup Holder puts the smartphone in a perfect spot in the car, helping make the commute a bit more convenient and safer.

Its tilt feature can get the phone positioned “just right,” adequately placed where it’s safely within reach during the drive. And it’s compatible with just about every smartphone available, making it a solid choice.

With the WeatherTech CupFone, you’ll stay in better touch with your valentine and help keep them safe on the road.

  1. Light Therapy Lamp

Perhaps it’s a good thing that Valentine’s Day falls in the middle of February when many people are at their limits of tolerating the colder, drearier wintry weather.

After all, winter makes better cuddling weather! But with the darker and grayer days of February, your valentine could likely use a healthy mood boost—and many experts believe that light therapy, especially during cold months, offers many benefits to mental health and emotional well-being.

To help beat the wintertime blues, try out the Verilux HappyLight Luxe, an excellent first light therapy lamp.

Its LED lighting has three color-temperature options to choose from, as well as four brightness settings, so it is quite adaptable to each user’s needs. It clocks in at about 6″ x 9″, which is just about large enough to transfer its healing light effects properly while remaining quite portable.

  1. Eye Massager

Another unique Valentine’s Day gift for those that work in front of their laptops or screens all day is an eye massager.

Perfect for anyone needing a little self-care, gentle warmth and touch around this oft-neglected part of our face can bring soothing relief and simple pleasure after a long day.

We recommend the RENPHO Eye Massager with Heat as a solid option. RENPHO’s Eye Massager is Bluetooth enabled for easy control via your smartphone. And your partner can even listen to music with its mask while they luxuriate during the relaxing eye massage!

  1. Smart Sleep Mask

Finally, treat your valentine to something you know they need and probably don’t get enough of—a good night’s sleep!

And a smart sleep mask, which shields their eyes from light and connects to Bluetooth devices, is one of the best ways to ease them into a deep, restful slumber.

There are countless options available, but we like the pLC-dolida Sleep Headphones because of the extra-soft and well-padded mask. Its Bluetooth capabilities make connecting to your smartphone or tablet easy, so your valentine can listen to relaxing music or audiobooks before dozing off.

We’re also impressed by its 8-hour battery life per charge, which should be more than enough to get them sleeping through the night.

These six gift ideas will help make this Valentine’s Day the “smartest” and sweetest possible. Whichever you choose, we hope you enjoy this special day together.
