Whether you are looking for your girlfriend, your gal pal or that special lady in your life, or a gift for yourself, these items promise to charge, inform and add some chic style for the new year.
Whether you go with the pendant or bracelet, this Tory Burch styled Fitbit is a great gift for close girlfriends such as your mom, sister or bestie. Both come in gold, silver or the seasonally popular rose gold version. It’s $175 for the pendant or $195 for the bracelet. It’s perfect if you’ve already got a Fitbit. Add this to their stocking and challenge each other in the new year.
“My phone’s about to die. It’s at 2 percent! Don’t know if you’ll be able to find me here,” your friend texts. We all know this person. A tech savvy gift like this can add some juice right when your friend (or you, if this is you, ahem) needs it most. The Michael Kors phone charger was specifically designed to look just like a lipstick case, making it a great item for travel or to just throw in your purse on your way out the door.
Holiday gifts are not always about practical things like socks and ear muffs. Sometimes a gal needs her tunes in style. This Stelle clutch adds both bling and stereo-worthy boom in a speaker you can jam out with on-the-go. According to the site, it pairs with any Bluetooth-enabled device, can take hands-free calls and even holds a mirror inside. It also doubles as a phone charger in case you are about to run out of battery.
The newly released Voyage is here just in time for Christmas. This is Amazon’s top of the line e-reader with the promise to read even more like a book page. A caveat here: it’s a full $80 more than Paperwhite. What you get for that is 300 pixels-per-inch resolution vs Paperwhite’s 212 pixels or the standard Kindle’s 167 pixels. It also promises a slightly whiter late night reading light and an easier turn of the page.
There are a myriad of tech accessories out there with which to decorate your gadgets, but not many are as stunning as these artistically designed Dannijo cases from sisters Jodie and Danielle Snyder. Choose from 21 different designs for iPhone 5, 6 or 6 Plus, many of which are currently on sale at Dannijo.com. The 5 cases are the lowest price. Keep in mind that many of the designs advertise that they come in all 3 sizes, but some have actually discontinued the 5.
The fashion ring that doubles as an alert for incoming phone messages is both a beautiful conversation piece and a useful wearable device. The ring buzzes when you’ve got an in-coming phone call, email or text message. It saves women from the need to keep their phone in their hands at all times. The customizable ring comes in several different colors and sizes and allows the user to program exactly which alerts they’d like to get. You can even program it to give you a different kind of buzz for different contacts in your phone.
Earbuds can hurt your ears when smashed up against your pillow at night. These soft foam-covered headphones are designed to be comfortable to wear as you drift off to sleep. These are good for traveling, music lovers with sensitive ears, or the friend that listens to podcasts at night before bedtime.
