A phone grip and stand
PopSocket Grip, available at PopSocket, $9.99+
PopSocket grips make it super easy to hold even the largest of phones no matter how small a woman’s hands may be. 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. I have PopSocket grips on all the different phone cases I use because I can’t imagine using my phone without one.
A smart display
Google Home Hub, available at Walmart, $129 (originally $149)
The Google Home 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 Home Hub can control smart home devices.
A piece of smart jewelry
Bellabeat Leaf Urban and Leaf Chakra, available at Amazon, $100 and up
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.
