Are you looking for a gift for your loved one for Valentine’s Day? Do you plan to spoil your loved one with a gadget or a new phone skipping the traditional chocolates and flowers? New phones, smart speakers, tablets are a great present to buy but do not forget to thoroughly check privacy, security and compatibility information.
Is the device ready to use directly after unboxing?
Like if you are buying colour-changing bulbs, do they require a hub? If it’s a mobile or a tablet, does it have a case or your loved one has to buy it later? Nowadays, cell phones have excluded a headphone jack, so you might need to get them a dongle for connection.
Do they need to replace stuff they have?
If you gift someone a phone, maybe the new phone has a different charging cable then the previous phone. So, like you can’t give an incomplete gift, right! You would need to buy the right cable too or the gift will be useless.
What devices your valentine already has?
You need to know it because it’s useless to gift an apple watch if your loved one has an android phone. Similarly, if they use Google smart speakers, Amazon Alexa assistant will be of no help to them. Smartwatches (not apple) and wireless earbuds are a great help, they are compatible with most of the phones.
Buying a smartphone as a gift?
Make sure that the phone you plan to buy will work with their wireless carrier. You can either directly ask your loved one about their wireless carrier or just buy an unlocked smartphone. Unlocked phones work with all of the wireless carriers mostly.
Have you read the reviews?
Always do your own research before buying a gift. Read reviews of the gadget you plan to buy and try to find similarities in the compliments of the device in the reviews.
