Looking for a great gift for a lady in your life this holiday season? Check out these 5 awesome tech options that are ideally suited to the ladies.

Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch

As far as fitness trackers go, you can’t go wrong with Fitbit. And while the company offers much sleeker and smaller activity tracking bands, the Ionic smartwatch is surprisingly comfortable to wear. It has a larger screen than she might be used to, essentially replacing a wristwatch. But that’s because, in addition to tracking steps, calories, stairs, detailed sleep data, and heart rate, it can also display smartphone notifications, including incoming calls, instant messages, social media feeds, weather app updates, and more. Customize the face, making it analog or digital in a number of different designs, and wear it while at the office during the day and working out at night. Plus, you can use it to make contactless payments at participating stores using participating Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards, including Royal Bank in Canada; and listen to music without your phone by storing tunes in the 2.5GB of on-board memory. It offers up to four days of battery life, and works with a number of Fitbit Coach and Guided Health programs. $400

Case-Mate Karat Petals Case

Give her a unique way to show off her smartphone with the Case-Mate Karat Petals case, which incorporates genuine dried flowers inside the back. This means that no two cases are exactly the same. The case is made using metallic foil elements and refined metallic buttons, and comes in two pieces with a shock-absorbing bumper, and anti-scratch technology. For the fashionable woman, it’s a great secondary case to use during nights out, or as a conversation piece at the office. About $60

Shiatsu Air Pro Foot Massager with Heat

Help a lady unwind after a long day with this handy foot massager, which offers deep kneading of the entire foot, along with soothing heat. She can adjust the intensity to her liking using the customized controls, and enjoy the gentle, rhythmic pressure while resting up for another tough day. $250

Chic Buds

Every woman can use a chic crossbody bag for daily outings, and the Chic Buds Crossbody Power Charging Purse adds a useful high-tech element. A lightweight and thin battery is housed inside a dedicated and hidden pocket, able to recharge smartphones and other USB devices while she’s on-the-go. It also includes built-in USB cords so she doesn’t have to remember to brig a cable along, too. The 3,000mAh battery can double the battery life of most smartphones, plus hold all of her daily essentials, including a wallet, keys, makeup kit, and more. The purse, which is made from soft vegan leather material, comes in a variety of colour options, from basic black to a vibrant yellow, and the crossbody strap is adjustable. US$70


JBL Focus 500 Sports Headphones for Women

While it might seem like earbuds are universal, with various-sized eartips, sometimes, models don’t just quite fit the contours of a woman’s ears just right. The JBL Focus 500 Sports Headphones are designed specifically for smaller ladies’ ears, with TwistLock technology that provides a secure fit, even during rigorous activities, with ultra-soft and flexible silicone.  They are sweatproof, and wireless, allowing her to stream up to eight hours of music over Bluetooth. About $80
