4. Canon Powershot G16

Canon’s G series are top of the pile when it comes to compact cameras.

But be careful ­ before long she’ll be looking for subjects.... £437.90 [a target="_blank" href="http://www.amazon.co.uk%20­">amazon.co.uk[/a]

5. Narrative Clip

5. Narrative Clip for the woman who wants a photo record of her life, but hasn’t the time to constantly whip out her camera.

6. Modern Day Mix Tape

Call us old fashioned, but swapping a few MP3 files just isn’t as romantic a gesture as the old­school mixtape. Your Walkman may have seen better days, but this USB stick in retro cassette packaging lets you recapture some of that 90’s­style romance. Go on, tell her how much she means to you via the medium of Pulp, and do it the old­fashioned way. £15 ­ [a target="_blank" href="http://www.Notonthehighstreet.com">Notonthehighstreet.com[/a]
