CNET News Video: Best gadgets for your valentine

1:04 /

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. If you're tired of giving the usual flowers and candy, why not mix it up this year and give your loved one the gift of tech. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports.

For starters update the traditional watch gift with a Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch from Tokyoflash. On the outside, it looks pretty ordinary, but flip it open and you'll noticed a beautiful LCD screen with an LED back light. The little bars and dots indicate the hour and minute, but you can also set the date and alarms. Another wearable gift encourages hands on action. The Think Geek Electronic Drum Machine Shirt cost 30 bucks and comes with a mini amp that connects with the shirt's audio output jack. And because drumming can work up a sweat, all of the electronics are fully removable before throwing the shirt in a wash. If your loved one would rather listen to music than play it, check out the Wooden iPhone Amplifier from Koostik. There is no need to plug this baby in. Just rest your phone on the cradle and the design of the wood naturally amplifies the sound. For more great techy gift ideas, visit cnet.com/crave. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
