Technology is a major part of our day to day lives, from our alarms, day job, to entertainment. It makes a smart and fitting choice for gifting since it’s something everyone can agree on! Working in technology, I’m always finding out some new way to save money or time in nearly every aspect of life. For Cyber Monday, I want to focus on just that: smart technology that makes a fun yet practical gift.
Lifestyle Technology Investments
AirPods / In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones: I was pretty late to this bandwagon TBH, as I was (and still am) a huge fan of my Dr. Dre Beats Studio Headphones. On a whim in Texas this past year, I decided to pull the trigger after losing my crappy Apple headphones on a flight. I’ve worn them nonstop since! For anyone that commutes to work, or takes lots of calls, or really ANYTHING, your life literally becomes seamless. I can call my family while cleaning my apartment, leave them in while shopping, you name it. OBSESSED. If you’re an Android user, my fave brand is Jaybird. These links are the lowest price for each model!
AirPod Ear Skins: Who else has tiny or odd shaped ears that make wearing Apple headphone so damn difficult? I bought these after discovering them on Amazon last month for working out, and DAMNN Y’ALL. This is a miracle item.
Cell Phone Ring Light: For the social media savvy friends/family in your life, this is a travel-friendly, take anywhere boost to your photos and videos! I take mine everywhere, from my purse to backpack depending on my events for the day. It’s also less than $7 bucks!
Google Home Hub: Think of it like an Alexa that has all your Google apps built in. Way better right? I got to learn more about it while I was working there, and plan on getting one this week too! PLUS: it’s linked at Sephora so you can build up VIB points while you’re shopping for others!

Blown Ouai Noir Hairdryer Set: Whether you’re on the hunt for a nearly silent option for your significant other or a busy boss girl that wants an extra 10-20 minutes back in their day, this IS IT.
Clarisonic Mia Smart Cleanse & Uplift Gift Set: A cleanser/massager in one, this is one of the best upgrades you can make to your beauty routine. If you’re not washing your face completely, your products will be far less effective.
Tech Neck Prevention Kit Mask/Roller Set: This is perfect for anyone that’s glued to their phone. Our necks get a lot more action these days due to browsing our phones, and they need their own TLC.
