Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so it’s a good idea to start thinking about gifts. With a few weeks to go before the celebration of love commences, you have enough time to really think it through.

Need some inspiration? Below you will find some gift ideas for ladies who appreciate a bit of technology in their life.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Rosso

Love is the color of love so why not get your girlfriend or wife a burning red smartphone as an (expensive) symbol of your love?

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium in Rosso is waiting for you on Amazon. It’s available for $599, so it’s definitely not the most affordable gift you could get. But money doesn’t matter when it comes to the ones you love, right?

Especially since the phone comes with impressive specs and features including the ability to shoot super slow-motion video at 960fps. You might even find yourself tempted to steal it for yourself.

Main specs:

  • 5.46-inch IPS LCD display with 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160 pixels), 16:9 aspect ratio, 807ppi
  • Snapdragon 835
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256GB of storage)
  • 19-megapixel rear-facing camera (f/2.0) with gyro EIS, predictive phase detection, and laser autofocus and LED flash

HTC U11 Solar Red

What if your girl is not a fan of Sony? Not to worry, HTC also has a red phone up for sale which it calls Solar Red. It’s available for $649 unlocked and comes with a neat gimmick called Edge Sense. This allows users to squeeze the phone’s frame to trigger an action like launching the camera app.

Main specs:

  • 5.5-inch Super LCD5 display with QHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), 16:9 ratio, 534ppi
  • Snapdragon 835

Honor 7X

Don’t have a big budget for Valentine Day’s this year, so you’re aiming for something a bit more affordable? At CES 2018, Honor announced a Red version of the Honor 7X. The phone is not up for sale in the US just yet, but we were told it will be made available in time for Valentine’s Day. So you’d better make a quick mental note of it. Unlike the Sony Xperia XZ Premium and HTC U11, the Honor 7X will cost you only $199. On top of that, the phone will come with a drool-worthy 18:9 bezel-less display, unlike the Sony and HTC models.

Main specs

  • 5.93-inch IPS LCD display with FHD+ resolution (2,160 x 1,080 pixels), 18:9 ratio, 407ppi
  • Kirin 659
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage (expandable to 256GB via microSD card slot)
  • Dual 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel rear-facing camera with phase detection autofocus, LED flash
  • 8-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 3,340 mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box

Red phone case

Aiming for something even more affordable? You could easily transform your loved one’s smartphone into a device suited for Valentine’s Day with the help of a Red case. You’ll have to make sure you know the exact smartphone model your girlfriend/wife is using, but finding a red case shouldn’t be too difficult. For example, if she’s using a OnePlus 5T, you can buy an official Red silicone case right from the official website.
