PC Advisor's 30 great Valentine's day gifts

30 romantic technology presents for February 14

Think pink

It's not too late spoil your loved one this 14 February. Whether you're aiming to woo a new flame or simply keep the home fires burning, we've got technological gifts both large and small that will make you popular this Valentine's day.

Lovely bundles of joy

My but you (and your spouse) are hard to please. Okay, here's the more quirky ideas from the cutting-room floor.

Freecom ToughDrive

How about something practical – a heavy duty backup drive that's clad in pretty (rather than cloying) pale pink. This silicon-clad hard disk can be used to back up all your treasured memories, whether photo, video or musical. Heck, it'll even safeguard your oh-so-cute email exchanges.

The Freecom ToughDrive's exterior is functional as well as pretty: it's made of silicon and is designed to protect files you archive to the ToughDrive from knock and jolts, withstanding drops from as much as 2m. There's also an internal antishock mechanism to prevent data loss.

BlackBerry Pearl 8110 pink

We'd rather opt for the purple version of the highly desirable BlackBerry Pearl, but there's now a version of the Pearl available in pink too.

For those for whom functionality rather than accessorising is a priority, there's an updated version of the BlackBerry Pearl, known as the 8110, available on Vodafone contracts with built-in GPS.

BlackBerry is plugging its GPS navigation capabilities now that the iPhone has added a LocateMe feature to its Google Maps feature. Already available on Vodafone BlackBerry Curve handsets, the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 now boasts a year's subscription to it too. Combining the email and messaging functions of more business-focused BlackBerry models with the multimedia features that consumers have come to expect, the Pearl 8110 has a 2Mp camera with 5x zoom, a music and video player and a microSD card slot.
