Ten ways to say I <3 U

Security for virtualized datacentres

iDuck floating wireless speaker

There's nothing quite like a romantic bath to set the mood for a night of steamy passion. Shakespeare once suggested music was the food of love. So to get the play on, perhaps you should invest in a floating speaker set to pump out the love ballads while you pump out loving gestures. You get the idea, I'm sure.

This little rubber ducky can bob alongside you both while you bob along to the rhythm of love. It comes with a cute egg shaped transmitter that has a 10m range and the added bonus of an FM radio. Quackers.

Kandela Enchanted Candle

Add some magic and a touch of silliness to your evening with the Enchanted Candle - an electronic light from the same company that created the Kymera Wand Remote.

The candle features a remote-controlled LED, which can be switched on and off with a wave of the supplied wand. It can also be blown out like a real candle and has a one hour sleep timer, should you wish to doze off with it on.

Why not buy more than one and scatter them throughout the room? Then, when your partner enters, wave the wand and light them up simultaneously. Hopefully, it'll be more than just candles you'll set alight, and you won't have to amuse yourself waving your wand alone this Monday evening.
