There are many strap options available, and a 40mm case is also available for more delicate wrists.
The Travelcard charger is a tiny power bank about the size of a credit card. Weighing less than two ounces, this $29 portable charge is sure to fit in any purse she owns. Despite its size, this portable charger can give her phone another 35-45% battery life.
For a personal touch, you can choose from eight colors and three output cable types: lightning, micro-USB, or USB-C, so make sure to check what kind of cable works with her phone first. This Valentine’s Day gift will come in handy all year long.
The NADI X yoga pants have embedded sensors that connect to an iPhone-exclusive app. The app receives information from the sensors in the yoga pants, and it gives you audio instructions on how to improve each yoga pose. When you pose, you will also feel vibrations at the hips, thighs, knees, legs, and ankles that let you know if you’re doing it correctly. These pants are perfect for the yoga beginner, or someone who just wants a little more guidance.
These smart yoga pants cost $249, and they come with a rechargeable Pulse module. This module clips to the back of the thigh and sends information to the app. The leggings themselves offer level-1 compression, and they are machine-washable.

These Sony headphones will set you back $298, but they are the only wireless headphones he will ever need. These stylish headphones fit comfortably, and when he’s done, they fold up small enough to fit in his bag. They are also surprisingly light, considering all the lovely tech packed inside.
These headphones have touch controls that let you change songs, adjust the volume, and switch between noise-canceling and ambient sound modes. They also work with voice assistants on both Apple and Android phones, so he can call you hands-free at any time.
The audio quality is exceptional, with warm vocals and rich, crisp musical tones. The battery lasts for 27 hours, and, if the battery dies, the detachable cable still lets him plug and play music the old-school way.
The DJI Mavic Mini is, hands down, the best entry-level drone with photo and video capabilities on the market. For $400, you get a drone that can take stunning HD-quality video and 12-megapixel photos. That’s way more than what the average home-user needs.

At just 249 grams, you don’t need to register the DJI Mavic Mini with the Federal Aviation Administration. However, you still need to check the flying regulations in your area, as they vary from region to region.
