Last-minute Valentine’s Day tech gifts

There’s nothing like leaving it to the last minute, but sadly, that’s what most of us do. The good news? There’s a whole weekend to run out and get that special gift before Valentine’s Day officially arrives on Monday.

But this year, don’t just say it with flowers or a boring old tie; say it with technology! Here are The Online Mom’s last-minute digital gifts for that special person in your life!

Amazon Kindle

Amazon.com, Best Buy, Target, Staples

The e-reader that started it all and still the best in the business. New sleek design; high-contrast, no glare screen; super-fast built-in Wi-Fi that can download a book in less than a minute; and a battery life that gives you up to a month of reading on a single charge.

Order on Amazon with one-day shipping and it can be there by Monday. Or to be safe, pick it up at your local Best Buy, Target, or Staples. For that special touch, load it up with a few of his or her favorite books!

KODAK PULSE Digital Picture Frame

Kodak.com, Amazon.com, Best Buy, Sears

Want to make sure your partner never forgets you? Give him or her a digital picture frame and you can send a new picture every day! You create an e-mail address for the frame and you can send pictures from your computer or direct from a mobile phone.

You can link the PULSE to photo albums on Facebook or the KODAK Gallery web site to create a slideshow, or you can set the PULSE up so it gets a new picture every day. The perfect gift for mom or dad, as well as your significant other.

Jawbone ERA Bluetooth Headset

Jawbone, Amazon.com, Best Buy

The latest and simply the best Bluetooth headset available. Features ground-breaking noise and wind-cancelling technology, and automatically adjusts incoming call volume based on your environment and background noise. The ERA can be synched with Jawbone’s MyTALK platform to give you caller ID by name, talk-to-text capability, and even different voice or language options.

No messy set-up required – just shake it to pair it with your smartphone or other device, and just tap it to answer calls. Comes in a choice of 4 different colors. Going hands-free has never been easier or more fun!

Samsung Galaxy Tab
$249.99 with 2-year contract

Samsung, Amazon.com, Best Buy

Why pay over $500 for an aging iPad when you can get more functionality for half the price with the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Powered by Android, with access to over 100,000 apps, the Tab features a brilliant 7-inch display, a rear-facing 3-megapixel camera and camcorder, a front-facing camera and camcorder for video chat, innovative SWYPE touch screen technology, and up to 13 hours of continuous-use battery life.

The special one-time deal of $249.99 requires a two-year contract but you can choose from all 5 major U.S. carriers. The best deal on a tablet that you are likely to see in a long time!

Bose QuietComfort 15 Headphones

Bose, Amazon.com, Best Buy

The perfect headphones for car rides, plane rides, or just privately enjoying your music at home. A comfortable around-the-ear fit means you can keep them on for hours at a time without feeling any discomfort, and the most advanced noise-cancelling technology eliminates everything that you don’t want to hear.

A single AAA battery gives up to 35 hours of life, and the compact carrying case means the headphones will easily slip into any bag.

Altec Lansing Moondance Glow iPod Docking Station

Altec Lansing, Amazon.com

An oldie but still a goodie. Set the mood with this unique speaker/alarm click from Altec Lansing. The multicolor lighting feature illuminates from the back of the docking station to soothe you after a hard day, or create just the right setting for a romantic evening.

Fits all dockable iPod models and comes with a built-in FM radio and an auxiliary input jack for other devices.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
