Bellabeat makes the best smart jewelry I've ever tried. The leaf-shaped body is made out of recycled wood composite that looks like stone. It's encased in a metal clip that looks like the abstract veins of a leaf. You can choose between silver or rose gold to match your lady's style. The original Leaf Nature is also a gorgeous option if you prefer real wood and a more traditional leaf look.

The best part is the Leaf's versatility. She can wear the Leaf Urban as a necklace, bracelet, or a simple clip on clothing. It tracks active minutes, calories burned, distance traveled, sleep duration, and sleep quality automatically. She can also follow guided meditation sequences in the app and set silent alarms to wake up more peacefully in the morning. 

We love the Bellabeat Leaf Urban so much, it's the top pick in our buying guide to the best smart jewelry.

Let Alexa do everything for you. Amazon's Echo is a smart speaker that can play her favorite Christmas songs, answer trivia questions, play fun games with the kids, read recipes, and so much more. 

I have the Echo in my home, and it's extremely helpful. It also sounds great as a speaker and works with my smart home devices. The Echo is our favorite smart speaker in our buying guide.

Bang & Olfusen make some of the most beautiful headphones you can buy. The H4 over-ear wireless headphones are extremely comfortable, attractive, and great sounding. These aren't big, ugly black headphones she'll be embarrassed to wear — these are headphones she'll get endless compliments on.

Is there anything more fun than an instant camera? Fujifilm's Instax Mini 9 is a fabulous old-school camera that prints photos as soon as they're taken. It even has a selfie mirror so your leading lady always looks her best. The Instax Mini 9 also happens to be our top pick for the best instant camera you can buy.

Fossil's beautiful hybrid watches combine the smarts of a smartwatch with the classic good looks of an analog wristwatch. The Fossil Q Accomplice comes in many fun finishes with leather or metal bands. The watch will buzz with notifications, track activity, and trigger select actions like launching the selfie camera. 

I've used a Q hybrid watch in the past, and it's a wonderful way to bring many great smartwatch features to a classic, feminine watch.

These touchscreen-friendly gloves from Moshi have conductive fiber on all 10 fingertips. The gloves come in light and dark gray in a number of sizes with a warm microfleece lining inside. They're super warm and fuzzy, plus they have excellent grip — I've used them with a very slippery glass-backed phone, too. The gloves are fairly responsive on touchscreens, though you'll need to press more deliberately.

Take it from a girl who always has too many gadgets to carry — the Chloe Hoodie by SCOTTeVEST is a great buy. The Chloe Hoodie has 14 pockets to fit multiple phones, a tablet, camera, sunglasses, keys, pens, and a wallet in the hoodie's pockets without any trouble. The fluffy cuffs and hood lining give extra warmth where she needs it most, and it comes in several nice colors. I use the purple one every time I travel.

If you know a girl who likes cutting-edge tech and sighs longingly while walking through the smartwatch section of the Apple Store, do the right thing and get her a smartwatch. The best smartwatch for ladies who rock an iPhone is the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3, but if your girl has an Android phone, don't despair — the Michael Kors Access Sofie (pictured above) is just the ticket.

I've worn both of these smartwatches for months at a time, and they're both wonderful and easy to style with anything. Both of these smartwatches are so great they're in our buying guide to the best smartwatches for women.

Nobody likes charging their phone, but Native Union's extra long Night charging cables get the job done in style. No matter what phones the women in your life use, Native Union has a cable for them — lightning for iPhone and Micro USB or USB C for Android. 

I've had my lightning Night Cable from Native Union for several years, and it's still going strong. This cable is also featured in our buying guide to the best lightning cables.

There's nothing worse than running out of battery and being stuck with a dead phone. That's where Mighty Purse comes in. This company makes wristlets, clutches, purses, and tote bags with battery packs insider for quickly charging any phone on the go. You can choose from tons of fun colors and styles. We tested a wallet and wristlet from Mighty Purse, and we loved them.

If your best girl just brought home a new iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X, you'll want to get her a great wireless charging pad. This one from Belkin is specially made for the new iPhones, but it will also charge Android phones like the Galaxy S series that support wireless charging.

Belkin's great charging pad is in our guide to the best wireless chargers you can buy, and I use it to charge my phone, too.

If you just got her a new iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X, buy her a beautiful case to protect it. Case-Mate has tons of sparkly, shiny, and unique iPhone cases that are perfect for the women in your life. Case-Mate has folios with cardholders or compact mirrors, super slim cases in many colors, and unique ones with gems or flower petals.  The company also makes cases for many Samsung Galaxy smartphones and older iPhones.

There's nothing better than snuggling up with a good book when it gets cold outside. Amazon's entire lineup of e-readers is wonderful, but the Kindle Oasis is my favorite of all. This is the Rolls Royce of e-readers, and she'd never buy it for herself, so go on, splurge a little.

If she's a total bookworm who makes her way through multiple novels a month, you can even get her a Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription to feed her habit. You can also check out our buying guide to the best e-readers.

Get her a smart suitcase that will charge her phone for the next big trip you're planning. The Away suitcase has a built-in battery to charge any phone and it will alert her to its location if it gets lost en route to your destination. We really love these suitcases, and they feature in multiple gift guides and reviews on Insider Picks.

Earbuds don't have to be boring, so give her a pair she'll love. The Caeden Linea N°2 In-Ear Headphones come in stylish color combinations like rose gold and white to add a bit of metallic shine to your earbuds. The cord is covered in fabric, so it is less prone to tangle. Having used them for a few years, I can tell you that they sound fairly good, too.
