Romance is in the air and with just two days before Valentine's Day many are scrambling to get the perfect gifts for their Valentine. According to Statistic Brain the average annual Valentine’s Day spending is a whopping $13.19 billion much of that is spent on overpriced roses and chocolates. But in 2014 the gift trends for Valentine's day purchases are geared towards gadgets.
"The primary trend for Valentine’s Day this year is to purchase products that save time and are convenient," Malky Schlesinger, the Director of e-Commerce for BuyDig.com tells this Examiner. "Devices like cameras, tablets, printers, and TVs connect and “talk” to each-other, which brings greater efficiency in one’s day-to-day tasks."
For the man or woman who thinks gadgets are not romantic, you may want to think again. For example the Apple iPad mini is a great compliment to your loved ones, iPhone or Mac. As Schlesinger points out the interaction between devices helps keep life organized and if you want to keep a personal touch in your Valentine gift you can pre download your partners favorite, apps books and games. To take it one romantic step further create a music playlist that has special meaning to your Valentine.
In addition to tablets BuyDig.com has a full array of products, "BuyDig.com specializes in consumer electronics; digital cameras, computers, tablets, pro audio and pro video. BuyDig.com also sells kitchenware, housewares, sporting goods, luggage, and more,"says Schlesinger. The site has something for everyone.
Another Valentine gift idea that will help you stay in touch is the uNu Exera Modular Detachable Battery Case. "When my daughter went off to college we were concerned because she is always complaining her phone battery is dead. My husband and I tested the battery case provided by BuyDig.com and with the extended usage it gives us piece of mind and is a great addition to the chocolates and flowers we will be sending our daughter this Valentine's Day."
Normally appliances are frowned upon as a Valentine gift but for those on the go something like a Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing System can be just the way to start off a romantic day with a piping hot cup coffee in bed. "The single brew is convenient," Lisa Sarah of Rhode Island tells this Examiner, "and a great Valentine gift for my boyfriend who always leaves a half a pot of coffee and grinds behind as he heads out to work. I look at is as a Valentine gift for both of us."
What better way to tell someone you love them with the gift of health, "There has been a huge trend toward taking control of one’s own health and wellness. Devices like pedometers, heart-rate monitors, and cooking tools are becoming increasingly popular, Schlesinger tells this Examiner, "many of our customers are purchasing these products as gifts for their loved ones."
Another added bonus to these types of gifts, they keep on giving even after Valentine's Day, keeping loved ones connected plus they don't pack on any extra pounds for those watching their figures. Just remember to add a romantic gesture and even Cupid would approve of your Valentine's Day gift.
