Valentine Gift Ideas for Her
Silicon Power Touch 851 – Rs. 2300
Silicon Power has a handful of aesthetically designed flash drives and this dazzling piece of technology could woo your loved one. A minuscule, yet stylishly designed flash drive shimmers in silver and golden, yet manages to don a sophisticated look. The 16GB Touch 851 has a pull out connector, assuring you of no hassles of losing the cap. The zinc alloy makes it sturdy, while the chain makes it a perfect fashion accessory. It is available for purchase at eBay.
SE Live with Walkman – Rs. 14,400
It’s small. It’s cute. It’s Android and it’s got some great specs. The perfect gift a guy would get his girlfriend. Firstly, that means she’s off her BB and she gets to know what a smartphone is and secondly, it’s Sony Ericsson and Walkman, an all-in-one smartphone. We were quite impressed with the Live with Walkman, and it would make for a great phone for the fairer sex. Although there is a black colored device option, we recommend the white one.
Rhythmic divine purity
Canon Powershot A3300 IS – Rs. 6,700
This is a nifty camera, dressed in vivid colors of maroonish red, pink and blue. It can be picked in the demonish black hue, too. With an attractive price tag attached, it is a decent camera for casual snaps during family functions and parties. It easily slips into purses with a compact form factor, tipping the scale at around 145 grams. It is equipped with a 16 megapixel sensor with 5x optical zoom. It also features a 720p recording functionality.
Nano sprinkled in vivid colors
Apple iPod Nano 8GB – Rs. 8,900
The Apple iPod Nano has seen several revisions over the years. The last one is pretty impressive, though. With a touchscreen built into such a small screen and the option to use it as a watch, it makes for a perfect multipurpose gizmo for your loved one. The product as it has always been, is sturdy and extremely stylish. While it's a bit on the pricey side, when it comes to portable media players, there are only a few products that are better than the Apple iPod Nano. The 6th gen 8GB version of the iPod Nano sells for Rs. 8,900 on Flipkart.
Hairband-ish audio peripheral
Jabra Halo 2 – Rs. 5,800
These headphones negate all the clutter of wires, and sit pretty around your head just as a hair accessory. The foldable design renders it highly portable.
