How about something more useful and unique for your cool tech girl this Valentine's Day—like a pink smartphone or a mascara that uses space technology.

Valentine gifts cool tech girl

In any gift-giving situation, it’s always the thought that counts. So while flowers and chocolates are still cute ideas for a Valentine’s Day present, how about something more useful and unique for your cool tech girl?

Here are our five suggestions for you:

Pink edition smartphones

Stereotypical as it sounds, girls will always love pink.

And for your techie girlfriend, these handy gadgets that come in adorable rosy hues are the perfect arm candy to go along with her fast-paced, digital lifestyle.

In time for the Valentine season, Samsung has just released pink variants for its J7+ (P19,990) and J7 Pro (P15,990) smartphones, that sport the Galaxy J-Series’ signature 5.5-inch FHD Super AMOLED display and the famous night camera available in the J7+’s 13MP+5MP rear and 16MP front combo, and the J7 Pro’s 13MP rear and 13MP front duo.

Meanwhile, Huawei has also come out with a pink gold edition for the Mate 10 Pro, which will be available starting February 10.

Phones are available at selected Samsung and Huawei dealers nationwide.

Out-of-this-world mascara

Literally! Talk about mixing aerospace technology with cosmetics and surely your tech lady will go over the moon for days.

The new BADgal Bang! Volumizing Mascara from Benefit Cosmetics is making waves on social media because—just look at this before and after photo:

Thanks to aero-particles—which are known to be among the lightest materials used in making spacesuits, rocket ships, and other space gizmos—this mascara is able to deliver results that simply defy gravity.

Of course, it could all just be marketing ploy, but whatever. Anything that can make a girl’s eyelashes on fleek is a definite winner in her book.

Order for only P850 at sephora.ph.

Cups of coffee

What’s a tech girl’s (well, everyone’s) favorite pick-me-upper? A good cup of joe.

On Valentine’s Day, give her a gift that keeps on giving—cups and cups of delicious brewed coffee, that is.

The Technivorm Moccamaster KBT 741 delivers 10 cups of drip coffee at a time and is able to keep your favorite drink hot for a full 6 hours. It’s easy to operate and clean up, and has an attractive design that is perfect for your stylish girlfriend’s equally stylish kitchen.

Nifty tracker

For the girl whose life is so fast-paced she sometimes tends to lose track of her most valuable things, the TrackR Bravo is a gift that she would appreciate.

This coin-sized tracking device attaches to almost anything—from keys to wallets to purses—and has a one-year battery life. Simply download the TrackR Bravo mobile app to start tracking with the help of GPS. If the item is nearby, the gadget will emit a ringing sound for you to easily find it.
