Valentines Day Gift Guide 2015

This Valentines Day, many religious fanatics have decided to police social media platforms. According to multiple reports, if you say 'I Love You' in public forums, these vigilante groups will force you to marry that person. Well, that's a great thing. I'm going to express my love for Lena Headey and Natalie Portman on 14th Feb hoping that these religious groups will track my tweets. On the other hand, if you have already found a significant other, you have no option but to put up with consumerism. For those of you who haven't thought of any gift yet, here's the last minute gift guide from techies. The list does not include a smartphone. If you want to gift a mobile, check out our phone buying guides under Rs 10,000, Rs 20,000, and 30,000.

Generic Gifts

Price: Rs 2000
Taste may differ, but everybody loves music for sure. This makes portable speaker a safe bet. And if you are on budget, the JBL Go is the way to go. This palm size device provides good sound for the price. In terms of design, it stays true to minimalism. So not only picnics, you can bring it to office too. The device comes with Bluetooth and AUX IN connectivity. On a full charge, it lasts for around five hours. Since it comes with a built-in mic, the JBL Go can also be used for conference calls.

All New Kindle (2015)

Book reading is the best hobby. It is gazillion times better than wasting time on WhatsApp. If you think carrying books is a little annoying, Amazon has you covered. The new Kindle (2014) holds thousands of books and offers a paper-like display that does not strain your eyes. It comes with Wi-Fi connectivity to download new titles from Amazon's book repository. All this comes at an affordable price of Rs 6000.

For Her

Philips KeraShine Airstyler
Price: Rs 2400
Crimper plate based hairstylers tend to damage hair. So if you are planning to gift a beauty product, the Philips KeraShine Airstyler is a simple and affordable option. The product enables user to dry and style hair in one go. This 650W airstyler features thoughtfully designed brush to provide gentle airflow. The Dutch company claims that the use of charged negative ions eliminate static hair, which helps smooth down the hair cuticles.

Canon EOS 600D DSLR
Price: Rs 41,000
If your better half is into photography, what's better gift than a DSLR. Considering the price to performance ratio, the EOS 600D is one of the best shooter out there in the market. This 18 megapixel camera is equipped with a powerful CMOS sensor. The device sports a 3-inch screen and an HDMI port. The EOS 600D ships with two lenses — EF-S 18-55 mm IS II and EF-S 55-250 mm IS II Lens. First is ideal for close ups and portraits, while the latter is good for wildlife photography.


For Him

Philips AquaTouch AT890/16 Shaver
Price: Rs 3500
A shaver is the most useful gift you can give to a guy. The market is flooded with countless electronics shavers, but the AquaTouch AT890/16 gets an edge due to its ergonomic design, dual-blade setup, waterproof design, and quick charging time. The device is waterproof, which is an added advantage. The shaver has a rounded low-friction head that goes easy on the skin. Another thing worth mentioning is the easy to rinse shaver heads.

Xbox One
Price: Rs 40,000
The entire world would agree that every guy likes video games. If you don't have budget constraint, a gaming console is the ultimate gadget you can gift him. I choose the Xbox One over PS4 because the former doubles-up as an entertainment hub. It can play Blu-Ray discs, do Skype calling, play nice with TV box, and even let you surf the internet by connecting wireless keyboard and mouse. And thanks to Kinect sensor, the console supports a lot of fitness games.
