The idea of getting fit and losing weight is a worthy one, and Jawbone’s Up fitness bracelet can help her out by monitoring how much activity she’s doing from day-to-day, tracking movement, and using apps to monitor what she eats and how she’s feeling.

She can get her friends in on it too, with gal pals linking together like a social exercise community. And if she has trouble sleeping, the Jawbone Up can also be used to wake her up, vibrating against her wrist when it’s time to rise and shine.

Nespresso UMilk

Price: $299

Some people really love their coffee, and if the gal in your life can’t live without one or two cups in the morning, it might be time to introduce her to Nespresso’s engineered coffee capsule.

Nespresso coffee pods are designed to produce a coffee with the same strength and flavour each time you make it. It’s a doddle to use too – there’s no way of burning the beans provided you follow the cup length recommended for use with the pod – and the small size of the UMilk means it won’t take up much space at home in the kitchen.

Milk can be made easily, and the bays for both the water and milk can be moved around to make it fit in even the smallest space.
