High-tech V-Day gifts for your sweetheart

Flowers, chocolates and jewelry are traditional Valentine's Day gifts, but there are a few options for tech-savvy gift-givers looking for some newer ways to express their love, according to one tech expert.

Bing Food & Drink, a free digital cookbook app for Microsoft Windows 8, switches to "hands-free" mode to allow a user with sticky fingers to go through their favorite recipe without ever having to touch the tablet, said Andrea Smith, technology editor at Living in Digital Times.

Another free cookbook app for iOS or Android users looking to make their sweetheart a delicious Valentine's Day meal is BigOven.

Red Stamp, which is available for iOS and Android devices, is a free mobile greeting cards app that allows users to pull from their Facebook or Instagram photos to make and send a personalized card to their Valentine, said Smith.

Folks who would prefer to give an actual device as a Valentine's Day gift have inexpensive options, too.

Smith likes the HISY, a tiny shutter remote control that connects to your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth. For about $25, the gadget allows a photographer to wirelessly snap photos that could be better than your average selfie.

It doesn't come with a way to set up or mount wirelessly linked mobile devices, so it could take some maneuvering to snap that family portrait.
