From smart watches to smart speakers, the latest gadgets offer an alternative to traditional Valentine's Day gifts. Candy hearts and roses are fine, but innovative tech gifts show that special someone you're creative enough to look beyond the ordinary.
1. Never forget it.
Flowers wilt, chocolate melts, but the right gift creates memories that last a lifetime. The Lifeprint 2x3 Photo and Video Printer uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity to print photos from social media and mobile phones, all via a hassle-free, inkless printing process. By using the Augmented Reality Hyperphoto app, you can print out a still frame of a GIF or video, and then place it in your phone’s viewfinder to see the full moving image.
There’s never been an easier, more exciting way to document your adventures.

In essence, you’re giving the gift of good health -- and what could possibly be better than that?
