Valentine Gift Idea For my hubby?

I'm not sure it is appropriate section. I just wanna ask for your advice here;
My husband is a is travel geek, but has everything he wants, too! He usually buys his Christmas or B-day present online, and then will hand me the delivery box to wrap and say it's "from" me. Makes it easy, I guess, but for once I'd like to surprise him. . . So I just wanna buy practical stuff say something related travel for him as this V-day gift. Is this camera the way to go? Any other good idea?

I would suggest an olympus stylus tough if you were looking for a point and shoot camera.

Maybe a pair of high quality in-ear headphones? Really nice for travel as it can cut down the noise around you.

If he's a Star Wars geek, a tauntaun sleeping bag. Might be handy for irrops. Seriously, Thinkgeek has some cool ideas, I hope you will be inspired.

I don't think most men would like purple cameras.

No Pentax. Get Canon if possible. Or Sony.

I'm pretty sure a Canon G12 would ignite his senses.

I recommend the panasonic travel zooms if you want a compact, quality, high zooming camera. They just announced some new models to be released in march, the DMC-TZ10/DMC-TZ8. I just took the previous model, TZ6 on a trip and was wowed by picture quality and zoom range compared to my older Sony compact.

I recommend a Canon S95 for a great small travel camera. It is such a hit it was totally sold out all over the country after X-Mas and has just become available again the past few weeks.

if he does a lot of indoor shots and candids, you might want to go with camera that does low light, like the Coolpix 300

If he doesn't already have them, noise canceling headphones?

I wouldn't care what kind of camera my wife bought me, if it came prefilled with some classy yet romantic pictures.
