27. Amazon Echo
The Amazon Echo and its ability to fulfill almost any wish truly is freakishly wonderful. You can ask the Echo just about anything, and its wish is your favorite lady’s command.
- “Alexa, play dinner music”
- “Alexa, reorder coffee”
- “Alexa, what are your deals”
- “Alexa, play Jeopardy”
The list of commands your Echo can fulfill is nearly endless, and there are a variety of Echos with different features to suit different needs. The Echo Dot will fulfill the most basic of commands, streams music, makes free calls to the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and can control smart home devices.
The basic Echo, the Echo Plus, Echo Spot and Echo Show all come with additional features such as higher quality speakers for streaming music and screens for viewing.
The Amazon Echo is a great gift for the girl who has everything.
28. Canon PowerShot SX420 IS Digital Camera
Do you have a photography lover in your life? The Canon PowerShot SX420 digital camera is more affordable than a professional grade camera but allows even the untrained photographer to take fantastic pictures.
The bundle shown here includes extras such as 64GB High Speed SDXC class 10 memory card, a digital camera cleaning kit, a padded camera case and a battery pack and battery charger.
A quality camera bundle set without a four-digit price tag that will allow your photography loving gift recipient to capture great memories.

30. Fossil Smartwatch for Women
Okay, style and functionality? I’m in! This Fossil Q Accomplice Smartwatch is so much more than a watch.
Among its features:
- It counts your steps
- Tracks activity and calories burned
- Sends notifications of texts
- Takes photos
Really, it’s much too pretty for all of that functionality, but it comes with both. It’s compatible with both Android and iPhone, and the band is interchangeable with all Fossil 16mm straps so you can change up the look.
31. Case-Mate iPhone Cases
Case-Mate has cornered the market on cool iPhone cases. The Case-Mate Mother of Pearl case is one of my favorites, but there are dozens of others that are equally attractive.
Many of the cases are made with Military Drop Protection, meaning they’ve been certified to meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G drop test standards.
This is a fancy way of saying the cases have been tested to hold up under extreme duress and stress conditions for those who maybe aren’t as careful with their phones as they could be. 🙂
Among the other design choices: Metallic Rose Gold, Waterfall, Gold Flake, Naked Tough, Brilliance and Geometric Hexagon Marble. The company does have some designs for Android phones as well, although it seemed as if the selection for iPhones was much more expansive.
There you have it: plenty of fun and different ideas for gifts for the women in your life.
