Sisterhood Thrive


Holiday gifts for the techie in your life

Welcome back to Hey! Holidays. We’re comin’ atcha all month with AH-MAZING gift ideas for all types of vinas. No matter who you’re shopping for, you’ll find a perfect gift on one of these lists. Have more suggestions for gifts? Tell us by using the hashtag #HeyHolidays and tagging us @ilikevina.

Twinkle lights, decorations, eggnog lattes, and parties make the holiday season the greatest time of year! There’s nothing better than donning your finest holiday outfit, getting together with friends you don’t see often enough, and making memories you’ll cherish forever (to the festive strains of All I Want For Christmas Is You). Finding the perfect gifts for loved ones will be easy this year because VINA has you covered with lots.

I’ve chosen some of my favorite items for the tech-obsessed gal in your life:


Everyone enjoys freshly baked cookies! This sleek cookie oven is Wi-Fi enabled so you can use a companion app to bake customized gooey, warm cookies. There’s no clean up or prep time needed, and best of all, CHiP monitors the temperature so each cookie is baked evenly before the oven automatically cools down. For $99, this is the gift that will keep on giving and I desperately want one…hint hint.

The techie vina with roommates will love this Bluetooth padlock from Master Lock. With the companion mobile app, you’ll be able to share access with friends, keep an eye on access history, get tamper alerts, and low battery notifications. Forgot your phone? No problem! Simply punch your personal directional code into the lock keypad and you’re in business. A trip to your storage locker no longer has to involve a frantic search for the key. For $39, this padlock is a steal from Amazon.

Don’t want to splurge on a new car for your friend? We don’t blame you. You can still spruce up their ride though with glamorous new car features instead. This wireless parking sensor fits every car model, will take less than 5 minutes to install (seriously), and has a detachable rechargeable battery. When your vina goes to park, the app will spring to life to guide her using a series of audio, visual, and vibrational feedback to safely get into a parking spot or around an object.

This holiday season is the time to ditch paper notebooks for a personal, reusable whiteboard notebook. No more chalkboards, heavy paper notebooks, or sticky notes. The Wipebook is covered in faux leather and measures 8.5 x 11 so it’s the perfect size for sketching, to-do lists, and everything else you may need to jot down. The busy vina on the go is trying to make her purse lighter, so this thin, eco-friendly Wipebook is the perfect solution to carrying a bulky paper notebook. For $39.99, this whiteboard notebook will be a lifesaver for the creative vina on the go.

For your techie, fitness fanatic friend (who doesn’t already own a FitBit) something from the Misfit brand of wearable fitness trackers would be the perfect gift. Their products are wayyyy cuter than FitBits and come in sleek and stylish designs. Your vina can track her steps, distances, calorie intake, sleep, and get phone notifications, all while staying super trendy. Move over clunky Fitbits, the Misfits are taking over!
