With Valentines’ Day creeping up quickly on unsuspecting couples, the task of getting your significant other a gift to remember (until the next year, at least) can finally not be pushed away any longer. While traditional options like flowers and chocolates are good and all, they do tend to ‘finish’ very soon. After the flowers have withered away and the chocolates all guiltily eaten up, you still need something you can remember the day by, and so tech gifts for Valentines Day are a great option in this regard.
From cameras to smartphones, fit-bands, audio accessories and even silly little digital love-boxes, there are tons of options to choose from. In this article, we will go over three of the main ones, and dive into detail on the top choices available for the Nepali market as well. Let’s get started!
Tech Gifts for Valentines Day:
Cameras have always been a great gift option for every occasion, and they still will be for years to come. After all, giving your loved one something they can use to capture special moments with you is sure to come in handy regardless of what the occasion is.
Brands like Canon, Sony and Nikon have a wide range of great products available through authorized stores as well as retail portals and resellers in Nepal. However, the options you’ll have here depends largely on your budget range. After all, prices can range anywhere from a little less than NRs. 70k all the way to 7-digits if you’re really looking for top-shelf quality.
In the budget price point, you have good options like the Canon Rebel T6i, Nikon D5600, Eos M50, etc however, it will definitely mean a sharp compromise quite a bit in terms of picture quality and features. If you’re willing to invest a bit more money for your gear, options like the Canon 90D, Canon 5D Mark IV, Sony A7RIV, Nikon D3500, etc are the best in the Nepali market to consider for tech gifts for Valentines Day.
Do note that prices, even for the same product, mostly tend to be different from seller to seller in Nepal. Since this is a sizably big investment on your part, don’t be shy on doing some research on all the options available in your price range. You can look into 2nd hand products on sites like HamroBazaar as well if your budget is tight but you don’t want to compromise on quality.
If a camera feels too heavy of an investment to make but you still want something fancy, smartphones are a great alternative to consider. Coming in a wide wide range of price points and features, there is definitely something for everyone to be found here. Budget as well as mid and high-range products provide a long list of awesome options for you to choose from.
Time was, budget phones meant you had to compromise a lot on camera quality, performance and screen size, however this is definitely not the case today. Nowadays, you can get great deals on budget phones with features that rival mid-ranged and sometimes even high-end phones. Options like the Redmi Note 9, Moto G9 Play, Poco M2, Redmi 9 Prime, etc are definitely worth a look, even if you’re on the hunt for a phone with a larger budget point.
In the mid and high-end of the spectrum, you have great choices like Samsung Galaxy M31, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi 9 Pro Max, Vivo V20, Galaxy A71, Mi Note 10 Lite, etc, along with high-priced flagships like the Galaxy Note 20 series, iPhone 12 series, Mi 10, OnePlus 8T and Pro, etc. If you feel stuck on making a decision for a new smartphone, do consider browsing through our extensive list of updates smartphone prices here.

SmartBands and fitness accessories:
This is another great gift idea for those of you looking for something with a more thoughtful and caring vibe. Filled to brim with health trackers and productivity boosters, fitbits and similar smartbands are a great investment that provide long term value for a relatively smaller investment.
Products from Xiaomi, Oppo, etc are great considerations when you’re out hunting for a smartband in the Nepali market at an affordable pricepoint. The Mi Band 5 is the undisputed (for the moment at least) king of budget smartbands, with its current price point set at Rs. 4,499/-, coming in with features like Calorie tracker, Heart rate monitor, Sleep tracking, flexible Exercise modes, Women’s health, 2.5D reenforced glass, tons of watch faces and customization options to choose from, and much much more (read our in-depth article on the product here). Other great options for tech gifts for Valentines Day include the Honor Band 5, Mi Band 4, Honor Band 5i, etc.
