Cupid never came unprepared, and neither should you. Here are our picks for the best tech gifts to get your Valentine. 


Cube Photo Frame

Cube Instagram Photo FrameDigital photo frames were hot ticket items when they were first introduced, and their Internet-connected successors are no different. One such connected frame is Cube, which connects to Instagram to stream sets of photos and videos continuously. With Cube, you can follow specific hashtags or accounts to get a real-time view of your favorite photos. A button on top lets you save your favorites. It comes with a rechargeable battery and 4GB of storage. It’s perfect for couples wanting to show off their relationships, and would also work to display all of those photos tagged with your wedding hashtag. Everyone who sees your Cube will realize just how much of a blast the #SmithWedding was.

Cassette Tape USB Stick Flash Drive - Heart Design

Casette Tape USB Stick Flash Drive - Heart DesignAh, the mix tapes of the olden days . . . a well-thought-out playlist on a cassette was a hot commodity for couples in the 80’s and 90s. While you’ve got lots of opportunities to make your sweetie a specially curated Spotify playlist, it’s just not the same. This USB 2.0 “cassette tape” erasable flash drive and matching jewel case are perfect for reliving those memories ‘till death do you part (or at least until you need something to put your Powerpoint onto). It’s one gigabyte, which is enough room for about 250 songs. That’s plenty of space to show your sweetheart you “Can’t Help Falling in Love” with them. You get extra points if you make your own mix tape cover.

A recharable battery lets you print about 25 shots before needing another charge. This cute little rectangular printer comes in white, black, blue and red, so make sure to pick your partner’s favorite.

Ussies Photo AlbumAfter you’re done printing your cute couple selfies, put them in the Knock Knock Ussies photo album.
