Nothing beats a helpful gadget, and that’s why we love cool gadgets so much. There are some helpful new gadgets out there that are more than just cool things to buy, and they’re not all just aimed at men. In fact, there are some great devices out there that women will likely love as well. Some of these had Kickstarter campaigns, so you know they have some cool ideas. So if you’re looking for some gift ideas for her (or for yourself), you’re bound to find some cool gadgets below.
Here are the top 5 cool gadgets for women:
1. Trackr Stickr
If you’re constantly losing things, the Trackr Stickr is for you. This bit of new technology is a small gadget that attaches to whatever you typically use (like your wallet or your keys) and connects via Bluetooth to an app on your smartphone, allowing you to locate the item with the simple press of a button. When you’re in the app, all you have to do is tap the “Sound Alarm” button, and the Trackr Stickr will beep, allowing you to find it quickly. You’re also able to locate the item on a map if you’re not close enough to it to actually hear it. I threw one on my TV remote control because my children are always running off with it and putting it in a toy box or cabinet somewhere. Not only can I track the remote, but I can also press the Trackr Stickr button on my remote to find my cell phone if I lose that, even if it is on silent!
2. Koala Tablet Wall Mount Dock by Dockem
Ever lay in bed at night with your tablet binge-watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix and realize just how uncomfortable it is to have to hold the tablet while you watch? You need a tablet wall mount, and the easiest one to set up is the Koala Tablet Wall Mount Dock by Dockem. It works with virtually all tablets — both iOS and Android devices — and is easily set up in seconds. There are no screws or holes required, as it simply uses damage-free 3M Command adhesive strips for mounting, allowing you to mount it virtually anywhere in your home. Whether you need your tablet in the bedroom, bathroom or kitchen, the Koala Tablet Wall Mount Dock can be placed anywhere. And, it’s cheap enough so that it makes a great gift for her on a budget.

3. Mr. Coffee WeMo Coffeemaker
A great cup of coffee can really change your outlook for the day, and one gadget that brews a damn good cup of Joe is the WeMo Coffeemaker by Mr. Coffee. It brews coffee at optimal temperature, but it also allows you to start the brew process right from your smartphone. So, if you set up the coffeemaker beforehand with grinds and water, you can make your coffee on your way home from work, before you get out of bed in the morning, or when you need that 2PM pick me up and don’t want to get off your couch yet. Not only can you brew your coffee from anywhere, you can also set up a brew schedule a week in advance. And, the carafe keeps your coffee hot for over two hours without burning it (like a standard coffeemaker normally would). Think about all of the times you swung by the Starbucks drive-thru and how much money you spent simply because you didn’t want to wait for your coffee to brew when you get home. Now, you won’t have to, which will likely stop you from stopping by for a $6 coffee at Starbucks. The Mr. Coffee WeMo Coffeemaker is my favorite gadget that I own.

4. Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener
If you drink more wine than you do water, you know how difficult opening a bottle of wine can be, especially if you don’t want to get any of the cork in the wine. The Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener makes opening wine bottles as simple as pushing a button. It also comes with a foil cutter which helps cut the foil evenly for a good pour. So, you simply use the cutter to cut the foil, place the electric opener over the cork, press the down button, and you’re wine bottle is opened, without a broken cork (which also means you can re-cork the wine when you’re done with it).
