Best Valentine’s Day Gifts!

Flowers? They die. Chocolates? Too fattening. Perfume? Boring. What to give someone you REALLY LOVE for Valentines' Day? Show you care with these awesome gift ideas.

Best Valentine’s Day Gifts Ever!

Each and every year on February 14th, millions of people rush around at the last-minute to buy their loved ones the same old lame gifts.


Personally, I LOVE receiving USEFUL and practical gifts, because at my age I’ve come to grips with the facts:

  • I have eaten enough chocolates
  • Flowers wilt and die within a few days
  • Perfume fades in minutes

So this year, take some advice from me. Do something DIFFERENT for your lover! Show them you care by showering them with things they need and LOVE!

Red Cross Ready ETON FRX3

FRX3-American Red Cross 

 Be Safe and Secure
Eton’s multi-powered, multi-function, smartphone-charging, weather alert radio that lights your way is an all-purpose, rechargeable radio/flashlight with solar panel and hand turbine power generator that no emergency kit should be without.

Ready, set, goCrank the hand turbine for one minute and you’ll produce enough power for 15-20 minutes of music, news and weather. Or simply charge it in the sun using the built in solar panel. You can also use the mini USB cable to charge the FRX3’s built-in rechargeable battery or pop in a couple of AAA batteries.

Hello, It’s Me!

To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall.

Light the way

The bright LED flashlight is always handy…at home, at the office, or even in the car. And the red flashing beacon is ideal for emergencies. Thanks to the glow-in-the-dark locator, the FRX3 is always easy to find.

SMARTCHARGE  Smart LED Lightbulb

An ultra energy efficient LED light bulb which works like a normal light bulb even during a power outage, SMARTCHARGE is integrated with a rechargeable lithium ion battery and patented switch sensor technology.

SMARTCHARGE can be turned ON/OFF from the same wall switch even during a power outage. This amazing invention doesn’t require any hardware changes or rewiring—it fits right into standard light sockets.

SMARTCHARGE works on a range of supply voltages, so it is applicable to every country in the world. Its built-in backup battery provides 4 hours of light. These 4 hours of charge can be “extended” by turning the bulb off if there’s no need for light at the moment. When the power comes back, SmartCharge automatically recharges the battery.

Gerbing S-7 Heated Ski Gloves

I have written about these gloves before, because they are the BEST GIFT I’ve ever received.  Battery powered S-7 heated gloves from Gerbing. The heated glove is manufactured using Gerbing’s European patent pending heating technology. These heated gloves are heated on the top of the hand, fingers, around the thumb but also on the palm of the hands.

Forget about the cold!

These gloves not only keep you warm but are also constructed with a waterproof/breathable liner to keep you dry. The S-7 heated gloves and the M-7 Mittens are textile gloves unlike the O-7 heated gloves and the H-7 heated gloves, which are leather heated gloves.

  • Operated by two 7 volt batteries which can be charged by a dual charger (B7V-2500 KIT)
  • Extra leather on the palm for better grip and feel
  • Hipora™ waterproof, breathable membrane to keep your hands dry

Maroo Audio, Earphones Designed For Women

If your lover loves jewelry, here are some gorgeous and practical headphones that will not only SOUND great, but they LOOK beautiful too. Maroo has introduced two new lines of fashion-forward, premier sound, noise-isolating earphones designed and engineered specifically for women’s smaller ears (perfect for me).

Maroo’s new GEM and ICE collections combine ‘fit plus fashion’ into two new collections for those women wanting to make a bold statement with their earphone fashion while demanding exceptional sound quality and comfort. 

Sleek Gemstones and Stunning Glass Crystals Adorn Earphones that Provide Unbeatable Sound Quality and Experience; Styles Ranging from Modern and Sophisticated to Classic and Bold.

The new lines present two distinctive, yet fashionable styles, while Maroo Audio’s proprietary micro drivers deliver deep bass response and crystal-clear highs with a signature full-range sound, making these jewelry-like earphones sound as beautiful as they look.

Maroo HeadphonesI was given a pair of these (full disclosure) and I LOVE them. Aside from them fitting nicely into my ear, the noise isolating sound quality and the MIC are both fantastic.

Another great thing about these headphones is that the tip of the PLUG is a little longer than most of the other headphones out there, and so when my iphone wears her phonesuit, the plug still fits in properly. If you use any sort of battery case for your phone, you will NEED these.

Unlike other manufacturers that just add pretty colors and bedazzle their current lines of earphones, Maroo has engineered the new earphones specifically to fit women’s smaller ears.




What are you buying your loved one this year?

You could always wait on line for some cronuts.
