As kids, Christmas was all about toys, but as adults we’ve got tech on our wish list. There isn’t a woman in the world over 18 who isn’t looking for ways to make her life simpler and one of the ways we tend to do that is with technology. Whether its an app, a home device, or a gadget we can take on the go, these tools are often the extra pair of hands many of us so desperately need. So, instead of being bashful and telling your loved ones you don’t want anything for Christmas, ask them for one of the items on this list that’s guaranteed to add some quality to your life.
If you’ve ever struggled through the play-pause-do cycle when trying to learn how to do something via a YouTube tutorial, you should know just how much the Google Home Hub can bless your life. The voice-controlled device allows you to apply makeup while watching your favorite Sephora tutorial without ever taking your hand off of your makeup brush, or cook a brand new dish without scrolling through a recipe book or directions on your phone. Simply use the phrase “Hey Google” and ask the hub to help you do a specific task, find a location, run down your morning schedule, or calculate your commute. You can even program it to turn on your lights, TVs, dishwashers and other home devices.
If you’re the girl who’s always asking everyone, from your co-worker to your Uber driver, to use their charger, you need this bracelet. The stylish wrist piece doubles as a fast-charger for your android or iPhone that you can always keep on you. Use the USB end of the bracelet clasp to plug into your laptop, portable battery, car stereo, or any other charging device and plug the other end of the clasp into your phone for a quick charge wherever you are.
Microneedling is a popular procedure used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, brown spots, wrinkles, and pores that can cost hundreds of dollars per session at a spa — or less than $50 at home. Urban Skin Rx’s device is crafted to stimulate skin cell turnover by pricking the skin at 0.5 mm needle depth, prompting the generation of new collagen which can improve those issues mentioned above in as little as 30 days.
For hairy ladies, it can seem like strands grow back on our bodies just as soon as we remove them, which is why it’s good to have an at-home tool we can use in between those trips to the waxer or threader. The new Venus Face Perfection tool released this year was designed to do just that, removing hair in the most sensitive areas of your face — chin, upper lip, forehead, and in between brows — promising up to four weeks of salon-smooth skin.
Consider asking your friend or loved one to throw in a Venus Direct Subscription that will allow you to receive razors with your preferred handle and blade design right in the mail as often as you like.
