Say It With Flowers

A bouquet of flowers is so cliché; instead help your Valentine develop a green thumb that will ensure pretty petals for years to come. The EasyBloom Plant Sensor, developed by a hapless gardener, is especially helpful to new homeowners seeking plants that will thrive in a new location. The device is made up of two parts: the top is a sunlight, temperature, and humidity sensor that can be plugged into your computer's USB port, and the bottom is a soil sensor that inserts directly into the ground. The system monitors your landscape's environment and recommends the right plant, flower, vegetable, tree, shrub, or vine for the area, while assessing the health of existing plants. The stand-alone unit requires a AAA battery (included) and comes with a stand for indoor use. About $60; PlantSense
