You know how we like the pretty things, mama. We can’t help it, we’re suckers for great design, especially when combined with smart tech. So we’re excited to share some of our favorite stylish tech gift finds this year for that cool plugged-in woman on your list.
We’re extra happy to share this guide on behalf of our sponsor, Tile Bluetooth tracker. If you’ve ever lost your keys, your handbag, or panicked about your luggage on the airport conveyor belt when it’s not the first one out, well you need to meet Tile. We’re fans and bet you will be one too.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a Cool Mom Tech guide without a fab giveaway. This year’s fantastic prize includes a brand new iPad Air 2 and a gorgeous designer case. We have a feeling you’ll love them both, whether you keep them for yourself or give an extra generous gift to someone special this year.

What looks like a gorgeous designer labradorite ring is actually a smart gadget, connecting to your phone via Bluetooth to send you customized notifications so you can keep your phone away. ($225, Ringly)
Our favorite iPhone case for going hands-free, whether you’re chaperoning your kids’ holiday party, or enjoying your own night on the town — hands-free, and kid-free. ($60 and up, Bandolier; Python case $125)
We’ve loved Rebecca Minkoff’s tech wristlets for ages now, but these allow you to charge your smart phone. Brilliant. ($120 at ShopBop)
No need to compromise style goals for fitness goals with the FitBit + Tory Burch bracelets, now in metallic. ($175 at Tory Burch)
If you thought headphones couldn’t make a fashion statement, rethink your stance with this gorgeous set from Bang & Olufsen. Amazing sound (of course), total comfort, luxurious materials, and style galore. ($399, BeoPlay)
Attach the Tile Bluetooth tracker to your keys, your tablet, your luggage, the headphones you never want your kids touching ever… you name it. You can ring the item right from your phone using Bluetooth. Check the Tile app map to determine the last place it’s been. Or if it’s your phone that tends to go missing, attach a Tile and you can make the phone ring — even if it’s on silent– so you can track it down from another device or on the Tile website.
Order on their website TheTileApp.com, and get a free Tile gift pouch with every 8 or 12-pack purchase, making it a perfect gift. You can also find it in all US Apple, Best Buy Lowe’s, Target, and T-Mobile retail locations as well as on Amazon.
Let’s just say if you’re buying any of the gifts here, you definitely don’t want to lose them. That’s Tile for you.
What’s not to love about these fantastic suede gloves (hello, rose gold detail)? Now she can click and swipe with stylish, warm hands. ($135 at Bloomingdales)
This bright floral laptop bag is a nice change from the browns, blacks, and grays you tend to see. Plus, a little extra room inside making it a laptop+more bag. ($248 at Kate Spade)
This tablet organizer isn’t just a fashion statement. It’s got a couple of zip, slip, and snap-close pockets to keep your cables, earbuds, and more, all in one handy place. ($168 at Nordstrom) Psst: We’re giving one of these away below! Scroll down to see how to enter. It’s easy!
Tumi’s reputation for making a long-lasting high-quality bag precedes itself, but now they’re meeting function with style. ($325 at Nordstrom)
Since when did battery chargers get so stylish? Since now. Get up to two full smart phone charges with this little gadget. ($68 at Nordstrom in multiple colors)
So it looks like fabulous Knomo wristlet from the outside, but inside, a charger so you can keep your phone battery at full while you’re out on the town. ($125.95 at Knomo with free US ground shipping)
Considering an iPhone 6/6S is a pretty hot accessory on its own, a hot python case from The Case Factory that keeps it safe seems fitting. Don’t worry, it doesn’t bite. ($105 at Net-a-Porter)
In case you’ve got a little spare change to throw around this holiday. ($14,500at Moda Operandi. Yes, that comma is in the right place).
