Even though it feels like we just finished holiday shopping, February 14th is already right around the corner. If you want to spice up you Valentine's Day gift this year, you might want to consider a tech gift instead of chocolate and flowers. OK, maybe in addition to chocolate and flowers. (Is it even Valentine's Day without chocolate?)
Here are some fun tech-related gift ideas:

Canon's instant camera printer
Since smartphones come equipped with ridiculously good cameras, most of us don't use actual cameras anymore. But for someone who loves taking photos and printing them immediately, the IVY CLIQ+ Instant Camera Printer from Canon is the perfect gift. The camera is small enough to fit in your pocket, and it has a selfie option with a timer that can be set using the app. It also includes fun AR filters, and effects, frames, text, and stickers can be added to the 2"x3" photos to print and stick.
