1. Little Riot’s Pillow Talk is a set of bracelets and small, cushioned speakers that you each place under your pillow. When synced, the bracelets send your heartbeats to each other so you can fall asleep and wake up to the sound of your loved one’s heart. Available for $179 at littleriot.com.
2. If you or your beloved has a signature scent, consider giving jewelry from Vessel Scents of Style with little ceramic beads that you can either infuse with your own fragrance or buy already scented with fragrance or aromatherapy oils. There are unisex pieces, like arrowhead lockets ($30) that can go on leather cords ($25) and bracelets ($20), as well as more feminine lockets, earrings and rings at vesselscentsofstyle.com.
3. Your grandparents may have told you how thrilling it was to get a telegram back in the day. Decidedly low-tech, telegramstop.com will print up your message on old-timey-looking telegram paper and mail it to your loved one for $7.45.
4. Consider the pair of Long Distance Touch Lamps designed by John Harrison and Vanessa Whalen of Wichita, Kan., which are like a “thinking of you” text message. You each get one lamp and sync them via Wi-Fi. Then, whenever one of you touches the lamp, its mate will glow. The fixture has an Arts and Crafts aesthetic, and the light cycles through an array of soothing hues. Available for $75 to $150 at uncommongoods.com.
5. Another tech gift is a pair of HEY bracelets, which resemble Fitbits. Whenever one of you gives the bracelet a little squeeze, the other feels it on their wrist — not with a vibration or buzzing sensation, but an actual gentle squeeze. Originating as a Kickstarter product, a set of bracelets and chargers is $99 at heybracelet.com.
