Best hi-tech Valentine’s day gift ideas under Rs 10,000


The list of Valentine’s day gifts is never-ending. Here are a few we choose for you that you can think about giving to your lady or man.

Gone are the days when Valentine’s Day gifts meant Archie’s card, red rose, chocolate, teddy bear, etc. The majority of the millennial generation doesn’t want to spend money on what doesn’t have a materialistic value. Keep the emotion aside, bring something that is hip and happening and serves a purpose too.

While the Valentine’s Day gifts involve an emotional touch, the great effort to impress the other gender shouldn’t be missed as well. More often, the more exclusive, more expensive, and more attractive the gift is; the person gifting it has a better chance to impress the boy or the girl.

Now, as the first Valentine’s Day in the post-Covid era is just a few hours away, here are the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for you to impress your love interest. Enjoy reading.

Wireless earphones

Who doesn’t love music? Be it a college-going teen, a corporate sector worker, or a lazy bum like us. Trust me, people don’t like those wired earphones anymore. It’s the era of wireless. Try Oppo Enco X or Realme Buds Air Pro.

The Oppo Enco X has been launched in India at a price of Rs 9,990 and it comes bringing a great deal of audio performance, paired with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Dynaudio tuning.

The Realme Buds Air Pro, on the other hand, priced at Rs 5,999, comes with ANC. It is available in colour options like soul white and rock black and is equipped with customised S1 high-performance noise cancellation chip as well.

At a price of Rs 4,699, the JBL True Wireless Earbuds C115TWS is an affordable wireless earbud that can be a perfect Valentine’s day gift as well. The best part of it is that it is tiny, not bulky, and fits perfectly and snugly in your ear. The build quality is good too, with high-quality plastic, and matt finished stylish body. Just plug in, call and keep talking for hours.

Sword to your queen

Women’s safety is something that is on the priority list for many nowadays. What could be better than this to give your queen as a Valentine’s Day gift that will give her an extra safe hand in case of any distress? There are a whole lot of gadgets available in the market that are affordable and effective as a safety device.

Sonata Watch ACT is something that is well affordable under Rs 10,000 that can be a true saviour in case of emergency. It has a mobile application that will be downloaded on the user’s smartphone. Using Bluetooth, the watch works with the phone to send distress alerts to the network of the guardian member showing the user’s location.

The Safer Smart Pendent is not just a normal pendant. It has a small circular device known as SAFER. Clicking the device attached to the pendant twice will automatically send an alert to the family or friends with GPS location.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen)

The Amazon Echo Dot 4th Gen comes with a visual makeover to raise the benchmark set by the older Echo Dot speakers. It brings an array of changes over the 3rd Gen Echo Dot and costs slightly higher, at Rs 4,499. Amazon has moved on from the hockey puck-like shape to a spherical shape, that resembles a bonsai version of the bigger Echo 4th Gen. The Echo Dot would be a wonderful gift for your miss, at a pocket-friendly price.

FitBit Inspire 2 BAND

The Fitbit inspire 2 variable band could be a perfect gift for those who are fitness-focussed and loves to keep track of their daily exercise routine. The band performs very well in step tracking tests. It has a very low step-count discrepancy of 0.23%. It can also track a variety of other workouts, record your estimated calories burned, HR zones — peak, cardio, and fat burn, and impact on your day, along with the other cycling metrics, depending on the workout profile selected.

It comes with guided workout functions and weekly challenges. Therefore, this band can easily help your special one to work on his or her body like a pro and you can guide through it. There won’t be much pocket crunch buying this Valentine’s day gift so you can save up for the party too.

Redmi 9 Prime

One major USP of the Redmi 9 Prime is the display. The phone gets a 6.53-inch screen with FHD+ (1,080 x 2,340) resolution, rare to see on a phone under Rs 10,000. The 1080p screen makes videos and games look sharper compared to a 720p display on say the Realme Narzo 10.

It has a plastic unibody back that has a texture to it, offering a good grip and making it smudge-free. The vertical camera module has a circular design around it that is somewhat similar to what we have seen on the POCO X2. At 198 grams, the phone comes in four colour options – Matt Black, Mint Green, Space Blue, and Sunrise Flare.

The Redmi 9 Prime comes with a Type-C port, a solid and reliable MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, and long battery life, among other things. Overall it can be another perfect Valentine’s day gift under Rs 10,000.

Philips One Blade

The Philips OneBlade is a 2 in 1 product that does the job of a trimmer and a shaver. It could be a perfect valentine’s day gift for your man of love. It can be used to maintain stubble or get a clean shave. The Philips OneBlade uses unique OneBlade technology, offering a single blade with twin heads. Philips claims that because of its innovative design, it gives better control over the trimming process, allowing better control, and better contouring.

Sony DSCW830

The Sony DSC-W830 digital camera is a pocket-sized point-and-shoot model featuring a 20.1MP, 1/2.3″, Super HAD CCD image sensor and BIONZ processor for high-resolution still photos. It offers HD 1280x720p video recording at 30 fps and low-light sensitivity to ISO 3200. The 8x optical zoom, 4.5-36mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and an aperture range of f/3.3-6.3.

The camera is equipped with a 2.7″, 230k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor providing sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read the menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology enables the camera for clear, blur-free shots. Capturing your moments together would be made so much easier with this in either one of your hands. A perfect Valentine’s day gift.

Mi Watch Revolve

The Mi Watch Revolve follows the mantra of ‘big is beautiful’. The 46mm stainless steel frame can stand out on any wrist. There’s a Midnight Black colour option, and a more flamboyant-looking Chrome Silver version, paired with a Neptune Blue silicon strap. The thick and large silver case, classic watch looks, the big circular display, and the hard-to-miss buttons on the side, make this wearable quite a looker.

The device is lightweight as well, tipping the scales at a mere 40 grams, excluding the straps. This means it’s quite comfortable for wearing over long periods and doesn’t weigh the wrist down. The straps use standard lugs and quick release pins, so you can swap them out and use any 22mm watch strap, as per your liking. It can decorate his/her hands as Valentine’s day gift and look cool as well.
