Christmas is surely the time to say to her exactly how you feel about her, through a gift. The gift of a gadget, of course. Here we’ve selected an octet of gadgets we reckon she’ll find pleasing.

Belkin Pocket Power without the weight – $39.95 or $59.95

Way back when we reviewed a mighty Belkin Mixit RockStar 1000mAh power bank. The only problem with it that we can see is that it’s somewhat of a lump of thing, not quite what a lady might want to carry amongst her personal effects. Now Belkin has released similar capacity but lighter weight power banks.

The Pocket Power banks come in two sizes – 5000 or 10000 mAh. The latter is big enough to recharge a typical phone at least three times. And they come in a range of fashion colours.

Dyson CSYS Task Light – $850

How much can one desk lamp say? If it’s a Dyson CSYS Task Light, it can say style, it can demonstrate elegant engineering, and it can make clear that you are serious. That’s $850 worth of serious.

There are colour choices available (well, black or silver in various combinations), and a choice of light colour. It dims and brightens, and this lamp will place the light just about anywhere she wants it without any irritating glare.

Apple iPad Mini 4 – from $579

We all know iPhones are wonderful devices, but when she needs a bit more screen space without a lot more bulk, it’s hard to go past an iPad Mini 4. At only 6.1mm thick, it’s actually thinner than most iPhones, and it’s great for Facetime, and doing some fairly serious screen work.

That screen is glorious and the iPad Mini 4 need not be tethered to an office WiFi if you get her the Wi-Fi+Cellular model. We’d recommend going for the full 128GB memory version too.
