When it comes to Valentine’s Day, the classic gifts that often come to mind are likely to be flowers, chocolates and teddy bears. But what if you’re with someone that’s not interested in these sort of gifts? For women, it can be difficult to think of a present to get a male partner on Valentine’s Day, especially if they’re likely to buy their own items when they need them. But this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find a great present. We’ve listed our top suggestions of tech gifts you can buy for a man this Valentine’s Day, including ones which can be delivered.
Docking stations can be boring- but not this one. This handmade wooden docking station from Etsy is a gift that you can personalise with a name, word or small message, and comes in different wood finishes (such as Mahogany, Rosewood or Walnut). Not only does the docking station work as a place to place your device to charge, but you can also use it as a place to leave your wallet, glasses and watch. If you’re with someone that’s prone to leaving these items lying around- this would be ideal!
If your partner wants to say goodbye to the inconvenience of using wires to charge their phone, then a wireless charger could be a great option.

Check out this handmade LED table lamp and wireless charger from Etsy- it comes in a choice of blue or white and would make an elegant addition to a desk at home.
Is your partner an avid Apple user? Maybe they went as far as to get AirPods to complement their iPhone. If so, then a personalised gift like this handmade AirPods leather case could be a great option. This gift has a luxurious feel with its black leather finish, choice of different colours for embossing (such as gold, rose gold or silver) and the velvet drawstring bag that it arrives in. If you want to buy something more refined that won’t break the bank- then this could be a winning choice.
Many devices these days come with an impressive camera setup, meaning that you can take excellent photos and videos without the need for a separate camera. However, for some, they still want the professionalism of a camera lens to take more artistic shots. Rather than have a camera and a phone separately though, you could try a lens that you can attach to your smartphone. Check out the handmade smartphone camera 37mm lens & filter clip kit that you can buy on Etsy. It’s easy to assemble and use, and it’ll allow any photography aficionado the chance to be more creative with their smartphone.
