Don’t let it rain on your fun. This heart-shaped umbrella is a great, useful gift that’s also romantic.

For the tech-savvy boo who’s always on the go, this messenger bag is the perfect way to keep them organized. It can hold a laptop as big as 17 inches, and has plenty of pockets for a phone, umbrella, or whatever else they might need on their commute.

If your boo is a fan of hitting the gym, then these headphones might be more their speed. The earhook designs are good for keeping them in place, and their sweat proof material make them ideal for getting the most out of both your workout and your playlist.

People on Amazon seem to love these wireless headphones, so your bae probably will too. They’re foldable for easy portability and last up to eight hours on one charge.


Remember that scene in Say Anything where Lloyd holds up a boombox to Diane’s window and blasts Peter Gabriel at full volume? Now you can recreate that scene for the modern age with this Bluetooth speaker. It can connect to devices up to 30 feet away and play up to 15 hours of music on a single charge.

If you’re in the kind of relationship that’s obsessed with taking romantic selfies, then you deserve a little extra room for them. This external iPhone flash drive is supposedly great for quick transfers between devices so you can immediately free up space on your phone for, yes, even more selfies.


You know that old saying about how the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? Yeah, that works for women too. And we can’t think of anything more romantic than perfectly fried chick, Oreos, fries — whatever suits your mood. According to the product page, this deep fryer can fry up to 23 pounds of food per batch, so you’ll be in good hands.

Of course, there’s nothing more heartfelt than homemade chocolates. This DIY kit can help you make your own truffles for your sweet, or you can gift them the kit and make them together. Either way you get to eat chocolate, so that’s a win-win.

The only food more romantic than chocolate is fondue. Canoodle over some melted cheese with your boo, then get horizontal on the couch while you digest all that dairy. Now that’s love.
