Walmart also has a well-stocked gift section for Valentine's Day this year. You can pick up a Motorola Moto E5 for just $69 or a Motorola Moto G6 Play for just $99. Other non-smartphone highlights include a Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 90 Neo for $120, a set of Apple AirPods for $210, or a Sony PlayStation 4 1TB games console for just under $300.

Amazon doesn't miss marketing opportunities like this and thus has its own selection of Valentine's Day gifts this year. Highlights include an Apple iPad mini 4 Wi-Fi for under $400, a Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch for $125 and an Amazon Echo (2nd Generation) smart speaker for $69.99.

Finally, there's an interesting product that is quite not what you would call a 'good deal', but if you don't mind spending an extra few bucks it makes a thoughtful gift that lasts beyond Valentine's Day. The LoveBox is a result of an idea co-found Jean has when left for MIT in Boston to research robotics while his fiancee Melodie stayed in France. The box, which features a spinning heart, is connected to Wi-Fi and allows you to send your loved one a personalized message via an app. You can check out how it works in the video below. It does cost $99 though, which seems a little steep for what it is quite a novelty item.
