Still wondering what to give your Valentine this year?

If you've got a tech-savvy sweetie on your hands, we've got some gadget gift ideas for you. The big day is right around the corner, but it's still not too late to pick up the high-tech gifts below.

Altec Lansing Octiv Duo

On a day for duos, why not give a gift for duos?

The Altec Lansing Octiv Duo lets two iPhones or iPods charge up and play music side by side. Just dock the devices in the Octiv Duo and it starts charging them up. If you want to play music from both devices, you can use the free Music Mix app to shuffle songs from both players.

Cost: $99.95

iGrill Bluetooth Cooking Thermometer for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad

True love is making sure you have a perfectly grilled steak every time.

Who cares if it's cold out? Fire up the grill, insert the probe into the meat and let the iGrill do the rest.

Go inside, schmooze with your friends, have a drink. Just keep your iPhone handy and the app will alert you when your food hits the target temperature, or tell you how much cook time is left.

It comes with cooking tips, recipes and more content. If you need another probe, you can buy it for $20.

Cost: $99 (For Apple devices only now, but coming soon to Android!)

iPod Nano

If your Valentine is a music-lover, consider creating a romantic playlist and uploading it to one of Apple's new Nanos.

Like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, the newest Nano also features multi-touch technology, but on a 1.5-inch color display. It's smaller and lighter than earlier Nanos, but still features display art and includes an FM radio.

Cost: Starting at $149 for 8GB

Griffin Slap Nano watchband

Who says wearing a watch is passé?

Like the snap bracelets of yesteryear, the brightly-colored Griffin Slap snaps open and shut around your wrist.

Pop in your iPod Nano and the plastic bracelet protects the dock connector and volume controls, but leaves the headphone port open, so you can still plug in and listen when you're on the go.

Cost: $30

Vivitar DVR910 High-Definition Digital Video Camera

Put yourself in the shot with your sweetie with the Vivitar DVR 925, a handheld portable video camera designed to fit inside your pocket.

It features a 2.4-inch flip screen, shoots in 720p HD video and includes smile and face detection software.

Cost: $99

Nook Color

If your Valentine loves books (almost) as much as he or she loves you, check out the new Nook Color.

This e-reader features a 7-inch touch screen that displays magazines, newspapers and books in full color. The Wi-Fi-enabled device includes a lending feature and lets readers recommend books on Facebook or Twitter, straight from the page they're reading.

The Nook Color also includes Sudoku, Chess, crossword puzzles and Pandora Internet radio.

Cost: $249

Golla Bags

Your high-tech fashionista doesn't need to sacrifice form for function anymore.

The Finnish company Golla makes attractive, colorful bags for a huge range of portable electronics. Whether it's a sleek case for an MP3 player or something more durable to protect a work laptop, Golla offers options in all kinds of colors and materials.

Cost: $10-$40

iFrogz

And if your favorite geek is a bit butterfingered, why not give a case to protect his or her precious gadgets?

iFrogz cases are made of super-durable polycarbonate and come in plenty of fun colors for Valentine's Day. Its signature Luxe Original two-component snap-on case has a sleek look and a plush feel. Apple-lovers will find cases for the full range of iPhones, iPods and even the Pad. But BlackBerry owners aren't without options either.

Cost: $29.99 for the Luxe Original iPhone case
