A gift guide to Valentine's Day

If you are looking at sending something traditional, such as a bunch of red roses, a good place to start is Roses Only at rosesonly.com.au They are allowing customers to make online purchases today and have them delivered before the end of the day.

As you may have already noticed, most sites will not deliver goods with 0 days' notice. Perhaps an e-voucher is the way to go. It is immediate and no delivery of a good is required. It may not be the most romantic thing to do, but if you can talk you will probably save yourself. Try looking at evoucher.com.au for perhaps a balloon flight from Global Ballooning or giftvouchers.com for maybe a wallet from leathergoods retailer Oroton.

Of course, this being the last minute and all, you may want to go to lastminute.com.au. Perhaps organising something for the weekend may be a lot simpler, as all deliveries of Valentines consumables will not be received by your lover today; unfortunately, most courier companies need advance notice. This looking forward to the weekend may also cover you for your lack of foresight earlier in the week.

If your lover does not fuss about the immediate and you are one that is more inclined to buy online than in the flesh, you may find these local sites helpful in the future. Wishlist.com.au, dstore.com.au, perfectgifts.com.au all offer general gift ideas. For that something more sensuous, efragrance.com.au may be the way to go.

Finally, if you have decided against spending lots of money then your cheapest bet is an e-greeting. You will find lots to choose from www.freewebcards.com and www.123greetings.com. For a musical greeting try www.clubgreetings.com and for a video greet go to www.hotgreetings.com.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
