Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! It’s only a few days away and heart’s day is here again – have you found the perfect gift for your loved one? You haven’t?! Well, if you’re running out of ideas for that perfect gift, or that perfect something that will spice up your and your loved one’s Valentine’s day, we have some ideas for you. Check these out:

Heat Changing Love Mug: Say I Love You in a Unique Way

Why don’t you surprise your special someone with this mug? It comes in a heart shape and it’s peppered with small red hearts. But, there’s more to these hearts than you can imagine! You don’t need words, nor hugs or kisses, just a cup of coffee to convey your message – pour in the hot coffee into the mug and the heart shapes will reveal an “I Love You” message that will surely delight your loved one and start his or her morning right!

Magic Love Candle: Traditional Romance Rekindled

After your morning surprise to your loved one, you can cap off the day with a romantic dinner using a magic love candle. This cute stuff is a candle, and more! Yes, it burns like a normal candle, and the heart shape is truly romantic. But, other than that, it comes with a sensor, battery, and LEDs (unique, huh?) that allow it to phase through different shades of red when the wick is lit. It’s a perfect blend of the traditional and modern, something your loved one will surely enjoy.

8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt: Because Proximity Means Life

And if you want to show the world that you’re at your best together, this black shirt with hearts that glow is the perfect gift for your loved one (and for you)! The red hearts correspond to your life energy, and it increases or decreases – yes, just like your favorite video game! When you’re far from each other, you have less life and therefore less glowing hearts (only 2.5 of the hearts will glow). When you get near each other, you’ll be back in real great condition and all your hearts will be fully illuminated. This is a truly unique way to celebrate your togetherness!

Tunes for Two Heart Splitter: Because You Share Everything, Even Music

And while you have those shirts on, why don’t you listen to your favorite tunes – that is, from one single music source. Just use the heart splitter, plug into your music source, and it can accommodate two headphones for you and your loved one. It comes in red and pink colors, perfect for celebrating the Valentine season by listening to your favorite songs together.

Plush Beating Heart: Something Weird and Cute this Valentines

Now if you want something truly unique, why don’t you try this beating heart toy? It’s red, it’s shaped like a heart, and it beats! Yup, it does. It is powered by three AAA batteries that make it beat every time you shake it. It might be a little weird, but your loved one will surely love this cute and unique gift.

With all the said gift ideas, you won’t have to worry about surprising your loved one on Valentine’s Day anymore. The said gifts will surely make your special day worth remembering. And of course, should you want more, flowers never fail to delight women (and yes, even men!). And when you go for flowers, you’ll have a lot of variety to choose from.

Solar Candle: The Eco-Friendly Candle

Have you ever seen a candle that doesn’t drip wax as it burns and emits light? Well, neither have we. But, there’s actually one who doesn’t – the solar candle!

Okay, first off, it’s solar. And what does this mean? Well, just that it won’t require anything for it to illuminate other than the rays of the sun. Yup, that’s right folks. You don’t have to light it up with a match. It doesn’t melt as it burns. And it won’t blow off even when you place it in a windy area (like out in your garden at night). Simply place it in a sunny area in the morning so that it will be able to absorb solar power. And when the dark sets in, it will automatically emit light. Ain’t that neat? Because of this, you can bring it anywhere without worry – no burns, no danger because of fire, no problems at all. And, even with all these benefits, this solar candle looks just like a real candle inside a holder. The light that it emits is comparable to that emitted by the usual candles that you light at home, and it even has a waxy body – except of course it won’t melt as the candle gives off light.

The Solar Candle is a cool innovation that measures 12 x 8.5 x 8.5 cm. It’s a perfect mood lighting piece that’s only priced at a little less than 13 Euros. Whether as an addition to your bedside table or as a gift to a friend who’s an environment-lover, this candle is perfect!

Candle in the Wind Tealight: Stylish Accent in a Portable Lighting Device

Candles are among the classic accents used in various occasions. They’re perfect for accentuating tables during casual dinners and formal parties. They’re also ideal pieces for your home as they give off a warm atmosphere whether they’re lit or not. Candles, however, have some disadvantages. They’re blown off easily, they don’t last long, and they can cause accidents when handled incorrectly. So what’s the best alternative? Here it is now – the Candle in the Wind Tealight.

This tealight is like a candle when it comes to its illuminating function, only it has more benefits in terms of style and efficiency.

  1. It provides better illumination – it’s even 70% more efficient that incandescent lighting.
  2. It is energy-efficient – it burns longer and uses only a little amount of energy provided by a battery that’s already included in the package. The battery can last for a hundred hours while the light source will work for as long as 100,000 hours.
  3. It is portable and safe, and can be used in a wide array of occasions.
  4. It comes in three sizes – small, medium, and large – and can be used either in the shape of a candle or with the column to create your desired effect.

The Candle in the Wind Tealight works using LED lenser technology. It’s made from tough materials, the column being frosted glass while the housing is made from premium steel. The tealight has a height of 11cm, a width of 3.5 cm, and a depth of 3.5 cm. It weighs 0.2 kg and is a real eye-catcher.

Combine Fire and Ice With Mathmos Thaw Light

mathmosCandles have become complicated over the years. Way way back, it was just candle wax and a wick. Now, it already comes in various shapes, colors, sizes, smell, or even the type of lighting since there are already LED candles. If that isn’t complicated enough, then add into the mix Mathmos Thaw Light that used ice to add an effect!

The Mathmos That Light is basically a candle with ice surrounding it. It might sound really weird that you put ice around the candle but the idea is cool actually. Having an ice covering the candle works the same a frosted glass is covering a candle but using ice gives it a more natural look and a more mesmerizing experience. All you have to do is fill the silicon mold that comes with it and put it in the freezer. When frozen, put it back in the stainless steel tray and place a small candle and let it work its magical charm through the night. The whole setup generally lasts for a good 3 hours which is more than enough if you want to use this for a romantic dinner.

I can only imagine how good this would be for parties, dinners, events, while listening to music, as a mood light or even simple blackouts that you want to make extra special. The only setback is the preparation time of waiting for the ice to freeze.

If you like to get one, it is always available here.

Wizard’s magic candle

LED candles

Have you ever seen a movie where in a wizard or a witch blows a candle to light up.

Now you can too. The LED Blow On-Off Candles are solid wax (except for some electronics) and feature a natural-looking, flickering light just like normal candles, but they have a couple of extra techno enhanced powers. Regular candles will blow out if you blow on the flame, but these LED candles will also blow on. All you have to do is use the master on/off switch on the bottom, and these candles will turn on and off with just a puff at the “flame”. Even better, each candle has a switch to select either a cool blue flame, or a more realistic yellowish flame.
