For any friend who’s disorganized or worried about losing their keys, the Tile Pro will be a godsend.

A streaming stick for an entertainment upgrade

amazon fire tv stick 2020

Fire TV Stick Lite with Alexa Voice Remote, available at Amazon, $29.99

Roku Streaming Stick+, available at Amazon, $39.00

If you’re not sure what to buy someone, a streaming stick is usually a safe bet. The Fire TV Stick Lite is one of the cheapest ones out there, and it will allow your friend to search for content with their voice (using the included voice remote) and access hundreds of streaming services, including Hulu, Netflix, Disney Plus, and (of course) Amazon Prime Video. This model supports up to 1080p playback with HDR. On the downside, the device is currently missing support for Peacock. 

The Roku Streaming Stick+ is a bit more expensive than the Fire TV Stick, but if you’ve got a larger budget, it has a simpler interface and a few apps that are missing from Amazon’s platform, like Peacock. This model also steps things up from HD to 4K streaming. The included remote has dedicated buttons for a few popular apps, along with a microphone for voice search. 

An ideal gadget for tech-savvy campers

FosPower battery

Your friend can whip this out and type whenever inspiration strikes, whether they’re in bed, at a coffee shop, on the bus, or anywhere else.  

A Bluetooth mouse that’s great for remote work and travel

Logitech mouse

Logitech M557 Bluetooth Mouse, available at Amazon, $37.08

A Bluetooth mouse makes a great gift, and this tiny one is our favorite. It’s completely wireless — there’s no receiver — so your friend can just whip it out and start clicking without fiddling with their computer’s USB port. They can also customize the device’s six buttons to map to the tasks they value the most. Our reviewer Brandt Ranj liked the M557 so much that he bought a second one to use at work. 

A portable Bluetooth speaker with touch controls

DOSS Speaker

Doss Soundbox Touch Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, available at Amazon, $29.99

You might not expect a small, portable speaker to sound very good. But the Doss SoundBox Touch, one of the top-selling speakers on Amazon weighs just 1.4 pounds and still delivers excellent audio with very full bass. It also features up to 20 hours of battery life, and a Bluetooth range of 33 feet so you’re unlikely to lose connection.

A tasteful leather phone-carrying case

Leatherology bag

Long Crossbody Phone Pocket, available at Leatherology, $40

As smartphones increase in size, it’s becoming more of a pain to carry them around, especially for folks who often wear clothing without pockets. That’s why our reviewers recommend Leatherology’s Long Crossbody Phone Pocket, a stylish carrying case for your phone. It has an exterior front pocket to hold other stuff as well.

Note: Make sure that your recipient’s phone will fit, as this pocket is only guaranteed to hold iPhones and a few Samsung models.

Sonic Bomb alarm clock

Sonic Bomb Extra-Loud Dual Alarm Clock, available at Amazon, $33.07

Pet Safe feeder

PetSafe 5-Meal Pet Feeder, available at Amazon, $43.99

Studio quality headphones

Audio Technicia headphones

Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones, available at Amazon, $49.00

These are our reviewer’s favorite cheap headphones for their excellent sound quality, comfortable design, and effective noise-isolation. Note that as studio headphones, these are best suited for use with a computer, TV, or home-entertainment system, rather than a smartphone. They’re attached to a sturdy 3.5mm cable, and come with a 6.3mm adapter for larger audio equipment.

A smart speaker for household tasks and convenience

google nest mini 2

Google Nest Mini, available at Walmart, $37.49

Echo Dot with Alexa, available at Amazon, $49.99

A Google Nest Mini is a great gift for anyone looking to get started on a smart home, or anyone who just wants a nice smart speaker. It sounds decent for its small size, and it’s got a futuristic design for a modern home. If your friend or loved one hasn’t used a voice AI before, they’ll love playing around with Google Assistant and discovering everything it can do. 

Like the Google Nest Mini, Amazon’s Echo Dot is another great way to introduce a friend to smart home tech and voice assistants. The new fourth-generation model features an updated spherical design, but the puck-shaped third-generation version is still available if you’re looking for an even more affordable gift option.

A visually stunning keyboard built for gamers

Corsair keyboard

Corsair K55 RGB Gaming Keyboard, available at Amazon, $49.88

Any gamer or aspiring-gamer friends will appreciate the gift of a good gaming keyboard. This is our reviewer’s favorite budget option for its full RGB lighting and solid, well-built keys.

A white noise machine to help wind down before bed

LectroFan

LectroFan White Noise Machine, available at Amazon, $41.95

If you have a friend or relative who has trouble sleeping, you need to buy them this white noise machine, which plays ten different types of fan sounds. You might be skeptical, but trust me: The LectroFan’s fan sounds are actually the most calming ambient noise I have ever heard. (For more traditional users, it plays 10 levels of white noise as well). I gave this device to an insomniac friend this summer, and he still uses it every night.

A 2.1 speaker system to bring the bass with a subwoofer

Logitech speakers

Logitech Z313 Speaker System, available at Amazon, $32.97

For any friend who is looking to replace their computer speakers (or buy their first set), Logitech’s Z313 is the best budget option. The system includes two stereo speakers and a subwoofer, and while they won’t deliver premium sound, they’re head and shoulders above any monitor’s built-in speakers.

A VR headset

Oculus Quest 2

Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset, $299

A virtual reality (VR) headset is a fun device, but it can be a risky gift if you’re not sure that the recipient has a PC powerful enough to run VR. That’s why the Oculus Quest 2 is the best VR headset to buy for a friend or relative. It’s completely standalone with no wires or computer necessary, and it even includes two Touch Controllers.

Apple’s best AirPods ever

A new pair of AirPods

I have a pair of these, and they’re my most valuable possession; I don’t know how I ever lived without them. 

The newest Apple Watch

Apple Watch 6 Blue

Apple Watch Series 6, $379

If you want to gift a smartwatch and money is no object, then the Apple Watch Series 6 is the one to get. It tracks a number of metrics, including activity trends, menstrual cycles, and run distance with built-in GPS. It sports an always-on display, so you’ll never have to wake it up to see the time, and you can choose between a number of different watch faces to find one that suits your style.

A high-quality DSLR camera

NIkon D5600, $596.96

Nikon D5600 DSLR Camera, $899.99

Dell’s most popular, flagship laptop

dell xps 13

Dell XPS 13 Windows Laptop, $1,387

It’s also an immensely powerful laptop, equipped with Intel’s 10th-Gen processors. And it comes with two Thunderbolt USB-C ports, a MicroSD slot, and an integrated 720p webcam.

a monthly book subscription

Gift the Book of the Month club, 3 months for $49.99

Graduates are bound to be excited about the end of classes, but learning can actually be pretty great when it’s self-directed and at their leisure. They might realize a few months out of school that they’re actually a little starved for something new to think about. If that’s the case, you may want to pick up an inspirational book like “The Happiness Advantage” ($15.22).

If you want a list to start your thinking, here are 10 books that famous CEOs loved reading. Otherwise, you might like signing them up for three months of the Book of the Month club ($49.99), which is a great tone to set for the summer.

Gift an Amazon Gift Card in a Graduation Cap Box

If what you really want to do is just give cash but are looking for a nicer equivalent, an Amazon Gift Card is a subtle way to accomplish the same freedom and utility. Or, if you’ve already gotten them a small gift but it doesn’t quite cover it, a gift card is a nice supplement.

Gift 6 Months of Language Prep, $50.70

Many students have had to take language courses as part of their degree, and many of my peers want to use their upcoming free time to make the most of the building blocks that they have gotten from those courses.

If you know they have an interest, this is a nice, no-pressure way to make sure they have the opportunity to grow their skills, should they want to.

After graduation, you enter some version of the “real world” and the real world will include putting together furniture, Googling how to fix leaky faucets, and enticing your friends to help you mount your living room TV with pizza.

Your grad will be thankful for the tools needed to handle whatever life throws at them, and this is one gift they may not immediately buy for themselves, but which you really want to have before the very second you need it.

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

Fitbit_Versa_3_Lifestyle_Bedroom_Stats_Pink_Clay_BJ_1056
The Fitbit Versa 3 makes a great gift for women who want a fitness tracker that doubles as a smartwatch.

  • Tech makes a great gift for anyone and everyone – no matter what time of year it is.
  • Ahead of the summer, we’ve found some incredibly useful tech gifts that will best fit her life and style.
  • Shopping for more gifts? Read all of our gift ideas in this helpful roundup of all our gift guides.

Every year, tech devices seem to get a little smarter and more useful. They make great gifts, too, because they often make life easier but aren’t necessities that people are willing to splurge on for themselves. As tech editors and reporters with decades of collective experience, we’ve pulled together a list of the best tech gifts for women that she’ll actually like.

Whether the lady in your life wants a pair of fantastic headphones that look good and sound great, hopes to track her fitness in style, or would love cool accessories for her phone, we have a tech gift for her in this guide. The picks below cover a variety of budgets, so there should be something for everyone whether you’re looking to spend $40 or $400 during the spring and summer gift-giving seasons.

A phone grip and stand

PopSocket

PopSocket Grip, available at PopSocket, from $10

PopSocket grips make it super easy to hold even the largest of phones. The grips stick onto almost any phone case, pop out twice to give excellent grip, and double as a stand when she wants to watch videos. PopSockets come in a multitude of colors, patterns, and styles, so you’ll be sure to find one she’ll love. PopSockets also sells grips that give back to select charities. I have PopSocket grips on all the different phone cases I use because I can’t imagine using my phone without one.

Apple’s new tracking tool to keep all of her essentials close by

Apple’s AirTags help you find lost items using the company’s network of 1 billion iPhones

Apple AirTag, available at Apple, $29 (additional case required for keyrings)

It’s easy for anyone to lose track of their things, but it suffices to say that women generally have more things to carry around and keep track of than most men. If the lucky lady in your life happens to be an iPhone user, then Apple’s new AirTags should be a well received gift. AirTags are shockingly affordable by Apple standards given their usefulness, offering direct navigation to tagged items (on iPhone 11 or newer) as well as using Apple’s FindMy network to track items outside of Bluetooth connectivity range.

A leather wireless charger

Courant wireless charger

Courant wireless chargers, available at Courant, $56 to $122.50

Wireless chargers don’t have to be ugly or boring. Courant’s wireless chargers and wirelessly charging battery packs are sophisticated and beautiful. They’re covered in leather and come in a few classy colors, including off white, black, rose, and light blue. We’ve used these chargers ourselves, and we’re certain she’ll love them. We particularly like the catch-all that has a space for keys, wallets, jewelry, and any other small items she may have. You can also personalize it with a short phrase.

Possibly the last umbrella she’ll ever need

yellow blunt umbrella

Blunt Metro Travel Umbrella, available at Amazon, $69

Chances are high that you can’t count how many umbrellas you’ve purchased in the past. The Blunt Metro Travel umbrella costs a pretty penny, but it’s designed to last, named our top pick for the best heavy duty umbrella. The umbrella features a 38-inch canopy with a wind-resistant radial tension system that can withstand winds of up to 55 miles per hour as well as blunted tips for safer commuting. And, with nine different colors to choose from, there’s sure to be one for her aesthetic.

A smart display

google nest hub

Google Nest Hub, available at Best Buy, $69.99

The Google Nest Hub puts all the smarts of the Google Assistant into a smart home hub with screen. That way, she can see visual answers to her questions, the weather forecast, news reports, YouTube videos, and more right on the screen as the Assistant reads back the information. It also has a speaker, so she can play her favorite music. Plus, the Nest Hub can control smart home devices. I use this smart display on my desk in my home office.

An affordable smart dog collar for keeping track of her best friend

Link AKC Smart Dog Collar

Link AKC Smart Dog Collar, available at Amazon, $109.99

This relatively affordable connected dog collar would be an excellent gift for the dog-loving lady in your life. Known to us as the best affordable dog tracking GPS collar, the Link AKC Smart Dog Collar offers what it says on the tin as well as activity tracking to see how much exercise old doggo is getting on a daily basis. The collar comes in a variety of sizes as well as leather and “sport” fabric finishes.

However, just know before buying whether she will be willing to pay a subscription fee to get the most out of the Link AKC. This service costs either $9.95 monthly, $95.40 annually, or $166.80 for two years. This is certainly a considerable expense, but the service also includes a three-year replacement warranty, access to the Pet Poison Hotline from within the app, and the option to upgrade the collar if her pup outgrows it.

A solid tablet for ebooks, emails, and excellent streaming on a larger display

iPad Air Apple Pencil

Apple iPad, available at Apple, for $329

While most of us use our phones for almost every digital interaction and and distraction these days, sometimes a 6-inch won’t cut it. Apple’s base-level $329 iPad is an excellent gift for anyone seeking a tablet that can do just about anything. This iPad has a sharp display, lots of long battery life, and impressive performance (for its price) for anyone in your life that’s looking for that bridge between their phone and their laptop. 

Check out our review of Apple’s 8th-generation iPad

A piece of smart jewelry

bellabeat leaf

Bellabeat Leaf Urban and Leaf Chakra, available at Amazon, from $74.99

Bellabeat has been making gorgeous pieces of smart jewelry for years now, and the Leaf Urban and new Leaf Chakra make excellent gifts. Not only does Bellabeat’s smart jewelry look fabulous as a necklace, bracelet, or brooch, it also packs a lot of smart features. The Leaf Urban and Chakra can track activity, mindfulness breathing exercises, and sleep patterns. It also doubles as a silent alarm so she’ll awaken peacefully each morning. The company also has a new Leaf Crystal tracker that has a Swarovski crystal on it for $149.00 (pictured above).

A high-tech hair dryer that delivers salon-like results at home

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (refurbished)

Dyson Supersonic for $399.99

It may be expensive, but reviews suggest it’s worth splurging for. Dyson’s futuristic hair dryer measures air temperature over 40 times per second to prevent heat damage and operates much more quietly than other hair dryers. But what really makes the Dyson Supersonic worth the high price, is its results. Not only does it dry hair significantly faster than the average hair dryer, but it’s also probably the closest thing you’ll get to a professional blowout at home. Considering many of us may be reluctant to go to a salon for quite some time, Dyson’s dryer could be the perfect gift for anyone who dries and styles their hair daily.

Check out our guide to the best hairdryers in 2021

A bike mount for her phone

QuadLock

Quad Lock Bike Kit Universal Mount, $54.90, available at QuadLock 

Quad Lock’s bike mount makes an excellent gift for any cyclist who likes to take her phone along for the ride. The company makes several versions, but this universal one will fit any phone, thanks to its two-part design. The adapter sticks to the back of a phone and locks into the bike mount securely. It’s one of the best ones we’ve tried.

A smart herb garden

aerogarden harvest

AeroGarden Harvest, available at Walmart and Amazon, $129.06

Who doesn’t love fresh herbs? AeroGarden’s Harvest herb garden isn’t super high-tech, but it is techy in that it uses hydroponics to grow delicious herbs and other produce quickly without much effort on her part. All she has to do to get her herbs growing is pop the seed pods in the planter, give it water regularly, and add the included plant food now and then. The planter does the rest, providing light on a schedule, moving the water, and alerting her when it needs more. In our tests, we had great success with this garden, and we’re sure she will, too.

A well-made desk pad that looks nice

grovemade desk pad

Grovemade Desk Pad, available at Grovemade, from $40

Desk pads serve multiple functions: they make a desk look nicer, they protect the desk from spills, and they can also provide a nice uniform workspace. These desk pads from Grovemade are very well made, with grippy natural cork backings and natural linoleum tops. The company also makes fancy leather and wool ones, but they do cost more. There are a few fun color options as well, so you should be able to find one that suits her style. I personally have the blue linoleum one on my desk, and it looks wonderful. Prices vary by size.

A Tile Bluetooth tracker for everything

Tile Pro, $34.93

Tile Mate and Tile Slim Bundle (two each, 2018 versions), available at Tile, $39.99

Everyone has lots of things to keep track of in their lives, and it can be easy to, well, lose track. That’s where Tile Bluetooth trackers come in. She can throw one of these on her keys or in her wallet so that she never has to go scrambling for one of those things when it’s time for work or an appointment.

A cool, artistic smart light

lifx beam

LIFX Wi-Fi LED Beam Kit, available at LIFX, $149.99 (available soon)

If her design aesthetic is modern and a bit funky, she might just love Lifx’s cool smart light beam kit. The Kit comes with six light beams that she can arrange on a wall in cool patterns to create accent lighting in her home. In the app, she can choose which colors she wants the beams to display and turn her space into an art exhibit. We tried the Beam Kit and we loved it.

The best portable game console around

Nintendo Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch Lite, available at Walmart and Amazon, $199

It’s widely known by this point that women make up half — if not more — of the overall population of gamers, so chances are your favorite lady is just as excited for the next Super Mario as the boys are. Nintendo’s latest console is easy to take on the go and already features hundreds of excellent games.

An affordable home security camera

Eufy Security_Indoor Cam 2K Pan and Tilt

Eufy Security 2K Indoor Cam Pan & Tilt, $51.99, available at Amazon and Eufy

Eufy’s 2K Pan & Tilt Cam is one of the best home security cameras we’ve tested, and it makes a great gift for smart home enthusiasts. It offers crisp video footage, two-way audio, motion detection, and other smart features for a very reasonable price.

An attractive hybrid smartwatch

Fossil Charter HR

Fossil Charter HR, available at Fossil, $195

If she doesn’t like smartwatches, but she still wants to feel connected to her phone, a smart hybrid watch is a great gift to give. The Fossil Charter HR hides high-tech features inside a classic, attractive, simple, analog watch body.

You’d never know that this watch is so smart by looking at it, but it has a black and white screen that shows notifications, metrics, and the time. It can buzz with notifications, adjust to different time zones, track fitness with a heart rate monitor, control music, and wake her up peacefully with a silent alarm.

A gorgeous Bluetooth speaker

marshall stanmore ii speaker

Marshall Stanmore II Wireless Multi-Room Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Speaker, available at Best Buy, $349.99

Marshall’s aesthetic is all about rock-n-roll, and this speaker will look great in her home. The Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker comes in three different colors: black, brown, and off-white with subtle gold or rose gold accents. It sounds great, too.

A fitness tracker that’s also a smartwatch

Fitbit versa 3

Fitbit Versa 3, available at Fitbit, $179.95

The Fitbit Versa 3 is the best-looking fitness tracker Fitbit has made to date. It looks a bit like a more angular Apple Watch and you can choose from a lot of different brands to personalize it to match her style. The Versa 3 has smartwatch features and apps, but it’s best at fitness tracking and keeping tabs on workouts.

An instant camera

sq20

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ20 Camera, available on Amazon, $164.99

Instant cameras make cute, fun gifts for shutterbugs, and the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ20 is a great option. Thanks to a nifty screen on the back, she can preview any photos she takes with it before she prints them — that way she won’t waste film on blurry shots. The camera also has 16 different filters, so she can get artistic with her photos.

A pretty phone case

case mate

Case-Mate Phone Cases for iPhone and Samsung, available at Amazon, from $5

Case-Mate has a huge range of cases for iPhones and Samsung phones, so you’re sure to find one that matches her style. Whether she wants a classic slim leather case, a clear case, or one that’s bedazzled, full of glitter, or covered in real pressed flowers, Case-Mate has an option.

The most popular e-reader

Kindle Paperwhite 2018 open cover.JPG

Kindle Paperwhite, available at Amazon, $209.99

Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, so she can take it into the bubble bath with her and read until the water cools and the bubbles disappear. The text appears crisp and sharp, thanks to the great backlight and high-quality E-INK screen. Amazon has an unrivaled selection of ebooks available for download and she can get free ebooks or borrow library books on the Kindle. We tested this ebook reader, and consider it one of the best ones you can buy.

A good-looking smartwatch

Apple Watch SE Heart Rate

Apple Watch SE, available at Best Buy, from $279

The Apple Watch SE is Apple’s new, affordable smartwatch. We tested it and found that it offers nearly all the same features as the more expensive, high-end Series 6, but for much less. It comes in several great finishes including a classic rose gold one and she can choose from many different watch band options to suit her style. The 40mm casing is also perfect for smaller wrists. Beyond beauty, the Apple Watch has serious brains, too. It can track fitness, monitor her heart rate and health, and buzz with important notifications.

A pair of stylish glasses that block blue light from electronics

Felix Gray

Felix Gray Glasses, available at Felix Gray, from $95

Blue light from electronics can lead to eye strain and make it hard to fall asleep at night, so why not get her a pair of blue-light-blocking glasses? Felix Gray makes both prescription and non-prescription glasses that look great and work well to block out those harmful blue rays. I wear a pair of these every night to help ease my eye strain.

A beautiful wireless charger

Native Union

Native Union Drop Wireless Charger, available at Amazon, from $39.99 to $59.99

Most wireless chargers are boring black or white pucks that are functional but not very pretty. Native Union’s Drop charger is the opposite. It comes in a soft rose or dark graphite color that looks gorgeous. The top has grippy silicone on it in a cool pattern so her phone won’t slide off it while charging. There is also a leather version.

A pair of touchscreen gloves that are actually warm

Ugg

UGG Touchscreen Compatible Gloves, available at UGG, $165

Touchscreen gloves aren’t always attractive, but Ugg makes some very nice ones with genuine leather and shearling for warmth and style. These gloves will make it easy for her to use her phone no matter how cold it gets outside.

A mega-popular smart speaker

Best Echo Amazon Echo 4th gen

Amazon Echo, available at Amazon, $69.99

If she doesn’t have a smart speaker yet, the new, round Amazon Echo will be a game-changer. This speaker has Alexa inside so she can ask the speaker to play music, answer questions, order products, play games, and so much more. If she has some smart home gadgets, Alexa can control many of those, too. We reviewed the new version and think it’s the best one yet.

A pair of truly wireless earbuds

Airpods

Apple AirPods, available at Walmart and Amazon, $128.98

When it comes to convenience, truly wireless earbuds are the best. Apple’s AirPods are very popular with iPhone and Android users alike. They look fair subtle compared to many other bigger earbuds, and they’re incredibly easy to use.

A great pair of over-ear headphones

b&o h4

Bang & Olufsen H4 Headphones, available at Bang & Olufsen, $300

Bang & Olufsen makes some of the most beautiful over-ear headphones you can buy. The new H4 headphones are made from high-quality leather and anodized aluminum. Depending on what color palette your giftee likes, you may want to get her the black ones or the “limestone” ones. They sounded amazing in our tests, too.

A smart mug that keeps drinks hot

Ember_Mug_2_on_Charging_Base

Ember Mug 2, available at Bed Bath & Beyond and Best Buy, $129.99

With the app-controlled Ember Mug 2, her favorite hot drink will never get cold again. In the app, she can choose the exact temperature she likes her beverage to be at for drinking, and the mug will keep it at that temperature for up to 80 minutes per charge. The mug itself is made of stainless steel that’s been coated in ceramic. We tested the mug and found it to be a life-changer.
