You don't need to be a geek to appreciate these Valentine's Day tech gifts. Whether it's a USB-power blanket to keep your loved one warm, headphones for sharing music as a couple, or a blingy new watch, each one says "I love you" in its own special way.

A great pair of headphones is a welcome gift any time of year, but these UrbanEars Plattan headphones are perfect for Valentine’s Day. It’s not that they’re an appropriate shade of red, but because two can listen to music together by jacking in a second pair via the headphones’ line-out plug.

Valentine gift ideas

From Austen Dean on February 06, 2012 :: 11:16 am

In the old days (before kids) we used to buy each other gifts, but now we’re lucky if we have time to sneak off to Hallmark and grab a card without it being obvious to the other what’s going on.  We decided years ago to just make sure we picked a day that week to get a babysitter and grab some dinner. It’s not as romantic as getting some sweet gadget in the color red, but it works for us. It could be worse, though. There’s a funny quiz going around that makes me feel better about our boring v-day routine http://www.acrobat.com/formscentral/en/valentines.html?sdid=JOVXS
