A good gift for any housewife will be a high-quality planetary mixer. It differs from the usual one in that the nozzles in it rotate not only around their axis, but also around the perimeter of the bowl. An advanced model with a high power of 1600 W is the Starwind SPM8183 mixer. It supports 6 speeds of operation, which can be continuously adjusted, and is equipped with a large 7L bowl. With such a machine, it will be possible to cook both dough and lush cream, and even make marshmallows or meringue roll. So then you can “reap” the fruits of such a gift in the form of sweets.
The mixer comes with three attachments: a classic whisk and two dough hooks. There is also a transparent lid for the bowl and a silicone spatula. The body and bowl are made of stainless steel: the material is strong and durable, which also does not absorb odors. The model is available in silver color with a blue speed controller. This will fit into the interior of any kitchen.
With the transition to remote work, many people have found that they do not have a normal workplace at home: a comfortable chair, a good keyboard and mouse. Therefore, a gift that will help make the workflow more comfortable will always come in handy. Pay attention to wireless mice – they are much more convenient than wired models. Logitech’s MX Anywhere 3 is a compact and ergonomic mouse that works on any surface, even a glass coffee table.
In addition to the main keys, the mouse has a button for switching between devices (it can be connected to three computers at once), two side forward/back keys, and a button for changing scroll modes. The model also has a very fast electromagnetic wheel that can silently scroll up to 1000 lines per second. This will appeal to those who work with large tables, texts or code – for example, accountants and web designers.
Any woman will appreciate the pleasant design of the mouse: in addition to light gray and graphite, there is even a light pink color. A version specifically for Mac is also available. The gadget will last up to 70 days without recharging, and already one minute “on the wire” will be enough for 3 hours of work.
5 cool gifts for those who appreciate innovation in technology
Wireless hair straightener
Many girls like to do their own styling, so they will definitely appreciate the gift “for hair”. We advise you to pay attention to portable devices – for example, the Beurer HS 20 cordless hair straightener. It is light, compact, fits in a lady’s bag and does not take up much space in a suitcase while traveling. The iron comes with a fabric case, in which it will be convenient to store it.
The straightener can work without recharging for up to 30 minutes – this is enough for 2-3 standard styling. Yes, and such a device costs a little – about 3000 rubles. Therefore, if you want to make a useful, and at the same time a “female” gift, feel free to take a Beurer iron.
The styler is equipped with a comfortable soft-touch handle and a long 3-meter cord that can rotate 360 degrees without tangling during operation. On the handle there are buttons for adjusting the heating temperature – from 120 to 220 ⁰С. Also, the composition of the plates includes argan oil: it helps to care for the hair and not overdry them as much as ordinary curling irons do.
Headphones will work without recharging up to 20 hours, and then quickly replenish the charge thanks to the modern USB Type-C interface. They’re also IPX5 water-resistant, perfect for training, and you can even run in the rain without fear of splashing. The headset provides good passive noise cancellation due to the vacuum design of the earbuds and excellent sound transmission during calls thanks to the system of four microphones. You can control playback using the touch buttons on the body of each earbud.

Epilator with massage head
Not all girls use an epilator – many prefer salon procedures or regular razors. But if you know for sure that she will appreciate such a gift, then choose a model from a trusted brand – for example, Braun 5-870 Silk-epil 5. This is not even an ordinary epilator, but a whole body care set. In addition to the main device with blades, the kit comes with two brushes for cleaning and massaging the face. The set also includes a cosmetic bag and a brush for nozzles.
The model is suitable for beginners, as it allows you to fine-tune the degree of contact with the skin. The epilator captures even short hairs and is completely water resistant so you can use it in the shower. It is also convenient that it runs on battery power, and not on the mains: an hour of charging is enough for 30 minutes of epilation.
Another useful household device that you can give to your mother, grandmother or beloved mother-in-law. Such a model as Karcher SC 2 EasyFix will greatly simplify life and make any cleaning quick and easy. With the help of a steam cleaner, you can clean floors, wipe hobs and walls in the bathroom, clean tiles and much more. A full tank is enough for 25 minutes of work.
The device comes with several nozzles for different surfaces: a wide and soft floor cloth, a round brush, crevice and soft nozzles for working with tiles. Thanks to hot steam, the device not only fights pollution, but also kills 99.9% of bacteria common in everyday life. It is also convenient that you can buy various accessories for the steam cleaner: additional pipes, brushes, rags. This makes the device even more versatile.
Flash drive for smartphone and laptop
Such a gift is perfect for a student or a girl who works with documents, for example, an accountant or a photographer – in a word, one who constantly needs to have important files at hand. The Kingston DataTraveler MicroDuo flash drive has two outputs: USB-C and USB-A. Therefore, it is convenient to connect it both to smartphones and modern ultrabooks, as well as to standard PCs.
The model is available in 32, 64 or 128 GB, and thanks to the USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface, it has speeds up to 100 Mbps when reading and up to 15 Mbps when writing. The drive itself is very small – this will be convenient to store in your wallet. The price of the gadget depends on the amount of memory, but on average it starts from 1000 rubles. So this is not only a useful gift, but also a budget one.
