1 More Spearhead VRX Gaming Headphones

Whether your significant other is into podcasts or they’ve recently discovered their favorite new streaming service, now is the perfect time to get them a new pair of headphones. And with 1More’s vast range of options, you can get them everything from their Spearhead VRX Gaming Headphones for $199.99, a pair of Active Noise Canceling True Wireless Earbuds for $129.99, or if they like the “AirPods” aesthetic without the price, the ComfoBuds are only $49.99. No matter how your loved one likes to listen to whatever they’re into, 1More has a little something for everyone.

Amazfit GTS 2e and Amazfit GTR 2e

Amazfit GTR 2e and Amazfit GTS 2e

We’re all keeping a closer watch on our health these days (no pun intended), and these $139.99 fitness tracking watches by Amazfit will help your Valentine keep track of their activity, sleep, heart rate, SP02, stress, and more. Both the Amazfit GTR 2e and GTS 2e smartwatches have aluminum alloy bodies with a borderless design and a curved glass display that is scratch- and wear-resistant. Both watches can perform 24-hour heart rate monitoring, and they can provide warnings when the wearer’s resting heart rate is abnormally elevated.

Best of all, both the Amazfit GTR 2e and the Amazefit GTS 2e offer up to 45 days of battery life from one charge, although that fab battery life is likely to take a bit of a ding if you opt to use the watch’s haptic vibration to notify you of incoming calls and messages. The GTS 2e is great for people who like a more rectangular smartwatch style, and the GTR 2e is perfect for those who like a round smartwatch.

Eufy RoboVac G30 Hybrid

Gear Diary's 2021 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Want to take one of the biggest aggravation points out of your sweetheart’s day? Get them the $369.99 Eufy RoboVac G30 Hybrid. Not only will it vacuum for them, but it can also mop! Whaaaaaat? Yeah, you read that right. The G30 Hybrid will vacuum their office on schedule, and if they don’t have carpet, it can even mop the floor for them using either reusable or disposable mopping cloths. Low enough to get under a lot of furniture and smart enough to navigate itself to the proper places, the G30 Hybrid is a great choice! Take a pain point out of your Valentine’s day by giving them a way to do a chore no one wants to do — automatically. You can even tell the G30 where not to go with Boundary Strips. Isaac Asimov would approve.

Earin A-3 True Wireless Earbuds

Earin A-3 TWE

Earin A-3 earpieces don’t have a dedicated right or left earbud. Instead, their patented technology automatically assigns each earbud as right or left when either bud is placed in the user’s ear. Your Valentine can even share an earbud with you for a mono listening experience together. The $199 Earin A-3 uses an open design (which means there are no silicone or foam tips that have to be jammed into your ear canal), so they sit comfortably and ergonomically in the user’s outer ear allowing for natural ambient sound awareness.

The Earin A-3 earbuds have an IP52 rating, so they are sweat-, water-, and dust-resistant. Each earbud has an intuitive touch interface so that your sweetheart will have a seamless experience answering calls, playing music, and skipping to the next song. The earbuds also use voice recognition technology to connect to your Valentine’s favorite virtual assistant, whether it be Google, Alexa, or Siri. And guess what? The Earin A-3s use Bluetooth 5.0 with a Qualcomm QCC5121 MCU, which means that depending upon the environment, your Valentine can receive a Bluetooth signal from up to 75 meters (246′!) away from their streaming device. Available in black or silver, the Earin A-3’s get up to five hours of music and calls on their own, and the charging case gives them up to 30 hours of playtime.

JBL Party Box On-The-Go

JBL Party Box On-The-Go

The party will be wherever your sweetheart is with the $299.95 JBL Party Box On-The-Go. With 100 watts of JBL Pro Sound, it will more than impress both indoors and outside. Your Valentine can expect crisp highs, pure mids, and even heavy bass—with Bass Boost! If they like to sing along, there’s an included wireless microphone, and if they’re in the mood to dance, you can turn on one of the Party Box On-The-Go’s pre-set dynamic light displays that will sync to the music.

At 19.3″ long by 9.6″ tall by 8.8″ wide and 16.5 pounds, the Party Box On-The-Go is much larger than your average portable speaker, so they’ll appreciate the built-in shoulder strap and its up to six hours of battery life. IPX4 splashproof protection will keep the Party Box safe, no matter where it is being used.

If you’re looking for a special gift for the guy in your life but want to give him a laugh while doing it,— I highly recommend some of Ballsy‘s products. Designed to keep his prized jewels and nether regions clean, fresh, and smelling great — Ballsy’s products have no harsh chemicals (sulfates, parabens, phthalates, or synthetic dyes) or heavy cologne.

Check out Ballsy’s Valentine’s Day special editions like the $50 You’re Incrediballs Cologne VDay Ballwash set, the $10 Wood You Be Mine Ballwash, and the $15 Ballsy Boxers; while you’re at it — throw in some cute $8 Nuts About You socks.

Extract Labs CBD Face Cream and Muscle Cream

Extract Labs CBD Face Cream and Muscle Cream

Extract Labs makes some of the finest CBD products we’ve tried; their Full Spectrum CBD Face Cream and Full Spectrum CBD Muscle Cream are great choices for multiple uses. The $90 Extract Lab’s Full Spectrum CBD Face Cream incorporates shea for moisturizing and jojoba, known for fighting acne, psoriasis, and sunburn. So if your sweetheart stays on the slopes past their SPF’s power, or if they’re dealing with dry skin and acne from wearing a face-mask all day, the soothing face cream can help. On top of the shea and jojoba, the face cream also has lavender, rosemary beeswax, and 1500mg 0f CO2-extracted full spectrum CDB hemp oil. Judie recently put a large and painful scrape on her elbow, and she says the face cream makes it feel better and the wound is healing nicely.

The $90 Extract Labs Full Spectrum CBD Muscle Cream helps calm down aches and body pains after a long day of work or play. The muscle cream’s ingredients include shea, jojoba, menthol, beeswax, 1500mg of CO2-extracted full-spectrum CBD hemp oil, arnica, rosemary, and lavender. Judie uses this on her shoulders every evening and says it helps.

Sometimes the best solutions are all-natural, and you can show you care — and make your sweetheart feel better — with either or both of these creams.

TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush

TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush

Perfect for that lady in your life, the $78.99 TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush will comfortably cleanse her face using powerful rotational technology that’s more capable than manual washing to remove everything from dirt to makeup to environmental debris and dead skin. Its spinning motion combined with its silky soft bristles will thoroughly sweep through her pores to safely dislodge dirt, dead skin cells, and make-up residues.

The TAO Clean Base Station self-cleans and charges the brush head while also protecting it from environmental contaminants, keeping the brush charged and ready when needed. The dock utilizes a built-in 360-degree Halo Lamp, which kills up to 99.9% of germs and pathogens with UV-C light, making each brush head last longer.

Moshi OmniGuard Mask

Moshi OmniGuard Mask

Judie loves her Moshi Mask!

Did you know that Moshi makes masks? Well, they do, and they are some of the best and most comfortable that we’ve tried. Available in medium or large, the $39.95 Moshi OmniGuard Mask is great for all-day wear. These masks protect against bacteria, viruses, pollen, dust, smoke, pollution, and more. The masks are water-resistant and have a long-lasting NanoShield antimicrobial coating to help keep them clean and hygienic.

The included Moshi Nanohedron filter blocks particles as small as PM 0.075 (or 75 nanometers). It offers 99% protection against the most commonly-found airborne contaminants; they include three filters in the package. There’s even an anti-odor bamboo charcoal filter lining the inside of the masks for added comfort and wearability. The OmniGuard Masks feature cushioned adjustable ear loops so you can get the perfect fit, and they have an adjustable nose wire so you can get a great seal.

You can hand-wash and air-dry them to make the anti-microbial coating last even longer — just remove the Nanohedron filter first because it can be put right back in and re-used for two to six weeks of solid wear. Each mask includes a reusable zippered storage pouch.

Caliper Swiftsticks Flavored CBD Variety Pack and Dissolvable CBD Powder

Gear Diary's 2021 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

If taking a CBD soft-gel every day doesn’t sound appealing to you, you might prefer to try the $49.99 30-count Caliper Swiftsticks Flavored CBD Variety Pack (you can save $5 per month if you sign up for monthly shipments). There are three great-tasting flavors — lemon lime, mixed berry, and cool mint — that make for an easy and delicious way to get your CBD on the go. Each stick delivers an exact 20mg of CBD; you just sprinkle it on your tongue and let it dissolve — and they taste delicious without being too sweet or gross. Caliper CBD is always THC-free, GMO-free, and vegan. Judie has these, and she likes that they taste good, and they help with daily aches and pains, stress, and feeling more relaxed before bed. She says, and I quote, “Getting old sucks, y’all. This helps me.”

If sticking CBD powder directly on your tongue doesn’t sound appealing, there’s another option! The $49.99 30-count Caliper Dissolvable CBD Powder (again, you can save $5 per month if you sign up for monthly shipments) is a flavorless dissolvable powder that mixes perfectly into any beverage or food, hot or cold — you won’t even taste it. The 20mg packets are convenient for taking on the go; they require no measuring, there’s no mess, and there aren’t any flavors at all.
