You shouldn't need a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, or a certain heavily commercialised holiday to show appreciation for your partner. But it's easy to take things for granted and let things slip in our hectic lives. In any case, we're here to help if you need ideas, here are 5 romantic tech gifts to consider. These gadgets are useful for everyone — we certainly don't mind getting something similar ourselves.
Balmuda The Toaster
The Balmuda toaster is the ideal gift for anyone who loves toast. Its use of steam ensures that toast will come out perfectly each time — moist and fluffy inside but crispy outside. It's also incredible at reviving day-old bread, I really love how it makes yesterday's croissants seem fresh again. Its charming appearance, with the old-fashioned dials, is the icing on the cake.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
Encourage your partner's active lifestyle with a smartwatch to track his or her physical activities. If he or she uses an Android smartphone, especially one from Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is a great choice. It runs Google's revamped Wear OS 3 platform, and has popular apps like Maps and YouTube as well as third-party staples like Strava and Spotify. It also has an interesting snore detection feature in addition to the usual health and fitness tracking.
Jabra Evolve2 75
With hybrid work increasingly common, we all need a good headset such as the Jabra Evolve2 75 for the inevitable online calls and video meetings. This headset offers excellent call clarity and superb active noise cancellation. It also sounds great for music, with a HearThrough mode that lets you hear your surroundings. I liked how comfortable it feels — it doesn't pinch the ears even after extended use.
Google Nest Hub (2nd gen)
An excellent gift for any occasion, the latest Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) adds sleep tracking to its repertoire. Yes, you don't need to wear a smartwatch to track your sleep. The Nest Hub uses a tiny radar to detect and monitor your sleep instead. This smart display also gets improved speakers that sound fuller than its predecessor. This is great when listening to YouTube or watching Netflix videos on its admittedly-modest 7-inch screen.
Belkin Boost Charge 3-in-1 Wireless Charger
If your significant other has the Apple triumvirate of iPhone, Watch and AirPods, the Belkin Boost Charge 3-in-1 Wireless Charger is arguably the best charger to get. While it doesn't boast the fastest charging speeds, the Belkin can replenish all three aforementioned Apple devices at the same time. It's perfect for overnight charging by the bedside.
