With the International Women’s Day 2018 just around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to surprise the ladies in your life and let them know how grateful and happy you are to have them in your lives. When you are choosing the right gift for a lady, just keep one thing in mind, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be pricey or luxe but it’s all about the message it sends.
Women today and forever are considered as the epitome of charm and power. They have made their presence felt in every field, be it building establishments as an architect or becoming a political leader, pursuing law or challenging the barriers of the crazy economy with their new theories – gone are the days when they weren’t allowed to present their viewpoint.
There is not a single field in this world which does not showcase their ability and on March 8, 2018, let’s celebrate this very strength and ability by gifting them something which they can cherish for time to come. Since they have been taking care of their extended families and perfectly balancing their work lives, what’s better than gift them a gadget which can help them go through the constant hustle bustle of life?
If you are perplexed as to what gadget can you gift to your better half or a colleague or your best friend or even your mother, you need to check out these International Women’s Day 2018 gifts from the world of technology.
1. Amazon Echo Dot ($50)
The Dot is a smaller yet just as powerful version of the Amazon Echo. What it lacks in an internal speaker system it makes up for with an audio-out port and Bluetooth connectivity. While the app and inability to route query to a single Alexa device within close proximity of each other can be annoying, the $50 price and Alexa’s usefulness make the Dot a solid option for anyone who wants to start building a connected home on the cheap.
It has the Echo’s same array of seven microphones and advanced noise cancelling technology that allow you to speak to Alexa from across the room, even when you have music playing. Like the Echo, the Echo Dot gives you access to all of Alexa’s capabilities, including answering questions, playing music, turning on the lights, setting timers, giving sports updates, checking the weather, accessing over 3,000 Alexa skills and more.
2. Anova Precision Cooker ($149)
If cooking is something she likes, there is nothing better than an Anova Precision Cooker that you can gift her on International Women’s Day 2018.

Simply attach the cooker to any water-filled pot and place your food in a sealable bag before setting the time and temperature.
The unique design heats the water and circulates it to a precise temperature while cooking food to an exact temperature that creates maximum tenderness as well as moisture retention.

This allows you to spend less time in the kitchen by relying on an app which notifies you when your food is ready to eat.
