High-Tech Gifts for That Special Someone

While traditional Valentine’s surprises like jewelry or chocolates will always be in style, here are some other ideas to show your love with modern-day choices.

Mantry Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes are a big craze thanks to their ease and uniqueness. No matter what hobby or passion your honey has, there is something out there for them. From beer drinkers to cat lovers, a quick Google search should find the perfect subscription gift that keeps on giving.

For the man in your life, take a look at Mantry. It’s a food-of-the-month club that is delivered in a wooden crate. Inside he will find half a dozen goodies like bison jerky, spiced beer jelly, bacon spread and more. $75/month

Even your dog can get in the game. Doggy Bag Monthly sends a unique package to Fido with treats and toys. Monthly or annual subscriptions start from $24.

Mica Smart Bracelet

Let’s get back to that traditional gift of jewelry. You can always go with a smart watch but the MICA Smart Bracelet is truly unique. A collaboration between Intel and the fashion brand Opening Ceremony, the MICA (My Intelligent Communication Accessory) smart bracelet is a standalone communication accessory that allows you to stay connected—and stylish—at all times.

Styled with snakeskin-covered PVD and an 18-karat gold stainless-steel band, MICA can display text messages, Facebook alerts and more on its 1.6-inch display. The bracelet is discreet as it gently vibrates when alerts come through. $495


Going to a movie can be a regular romantic getaway for couples. If your significant other enjoys new flicks then a MoviePass membership may be box office gold. It’s like an all-you-can-eat buffet for a movie lover.

Sign up online and you will receive a MoviePass card in the mail within a week. Download the free app to browse theaters and showtimes, then use the card to get your ticket at the box office or kiosk. The service allows up to one movie a day at over 3,700 theaters across the country. A three-month membership is $125; six-months for $225; and a one-year plan is $400.
