More than just sound, the Amazon Echo is a helpful companion that responds to voice commands, even from across the room.

Even better, the Amazon Echo continues to get smarter and have new features added.
#3. Smartphone Gloves
‘Tis the season for winter hats, scarves and gloves, but layering up to stay warm can create a real challenge when also trying to stay connected. The solution? With a pair of touch-screen capable smartphone gloves (like these from REI), you’ll never miss that “Thinking of You” text or call! Now available from North Face, Smart Wool, and even Vera Bradley, you can search and choose from a large variety of sizes, colors and styles to find just the right look for your Valentine.

#4. Bluetooth Knit Hat
Why stop at just gloves? With this integrated beanie, you can go fully hands-free and wireless, answering calls wirelessly via the built-in MIC, and also listening to your stored music through high-quality built-in headphones. All of this while still staying toasty warm! Check out Acefast’s version here, or the Caseco Blue Toque Double-Layered version here.

#7. Tylt Energi Sliding Power Case
We love our iPhones, but definitely don’t love that low battery warning that comes along at exactly the wrong time.

Bonus Gift Idea!
We promised 7, but here is a final Bonus idea. Go super old-school and make a virtual mix-tape! Services like Spotify, Soundcloud and Beats Music allow you to create, share and embed music playlists, in addition to listening to them on a mobile device. 8Tracks is another service where you can make or discover playlists, and has apps for Apple, Android and Blackberry.
