Many of us remember how much work we put into mix tapes for past crushes. Sharing the music you love after compiling it in a certain order and dedicating it to your sweetheart is usually more meaningful to the gift giver than it is to the recipient. Making a music compilation can still work as one of the best Valentine's Day ideas, though. Instead of recording songs off the radio or burning a mix onto a CD, you should give your valentine a music player as well, in the form of an iPod Nano.
In this tech-driven world, it's likely that your sweetheart has a smartphone or MP3 player of some sort, but the 7th generation iPod Nano is Apple's best model yet. Its tiny size and large 2.5-inch touch screen make it a fun and accessible music player. It also makes a great Valentine's gift with an agenda if you want your better half to start exercising. The iPod Nano has a built-in app called Nike+ that has a pedometer and a daily exercise goal tracker. There are countless add-ons for this version of the iPod Nano that make it ideal to take jogging. Just don't ever instruct your valentine to take it jogging. That would immediately disqualify any brownie points your gift might have earned you.
The iPod Nano is a fail-safe Valentine's gift. To firmly position yourself on the thoughtful side of the fence, go the extra mile and load some of her favorite songs and albums to it before you give it as a gift. If you two share a special song, which you should, be sure to include that too. However, if you really want to redline the thoughtfulness meter, build a photo slideshow with your valentine's favorite songs and watch their face light up with joy. To seal the deal, make sure to record every special moment of this amazing day to share throughout the year. Rest assured that this act alone would give you a thoughtfulness surplus that would balance out any future anniversary or birthday-related thoughtlessness for months to come.
With eight color options, you can customize this Valentine's present to suit your sweetie's tastes. To make it even more personal, you have the option to engrave a heartfelt message on the back to remind your valentine of your dedication and love. It doesn't hurt that it also reminds them about how sweet you can be on Valentine's Day.
As a miniature music player, this device will be used quite frequently and you'll absolutely get your money's worth. It has Bluetooth capability, so it can easily connect to a car stereo. Apple has improved the Nano with every edition. This version specifically has 16GB of storage, which translates to a few thousand songs, along with high quality photos and video playback. The downside to this iPod Nano is similar to the iPhone 5's failing. Instead of an easy USB connection, it requires the Lightning micro USB connection, and you'll have to pay extra for a stereo connection.
The iPod Nano has come a long way from its low memory and tiny screen. Now you can wow your valentine with an impressive music player to take on the go. It's especially perfect for exercising and can be a great motivator for those looking to become more active. This is today's version of the mix tape, and your slideshows and compilations will be a great romantic reminder to the one you love.
