Wife tech gift for XMAS?

My wife is definitely not technically inclined, but she had mentioned that the fit bit was a cool gadget. Mind you that it was over regular conversation so I am little hesitant to get her one. I think it would be easy enough for her to use, so I am looking right now.

What kind of tech or non tech gifts are you getting your significant others?

    A roomba you know that vacuum that cleans the floor by itself and goes back to its base. Nah she'd kill me lol. I'm not getting her anything technical she doesn't want an apple smart watch either. Best bet...jewelry.

    My girlfriend actually wants a roomba haha. We already have a neato that I need to send off for repair. I keep telling her I'll do that before she spends 400-500 on a new one.

    What about one of those thermometers that has an app. When something reaches temperature it sends you an alert through the phone or may even monitor real time temperature. I thought about one for myself for grilling. iGrill is what I was looking at.

    Portable power bank for cellphone just in case

    I will never buy a vacuum or any other cleaning appliance for my wife for a gift.

    If you want to buy her something techie, consider what would mesh well with what she already has and uses. A bluetooth accessory for the phone or laptop, or a USB accessory for the laptop, that sort of thing.

    What the heck? Roombas cut grass now too, they're taking over the world along with the drones.

    I am replacing my wife's Fitbit with an Apple Watch. My wife, also a non-techie, mentioned that the Fitbit doesn't show time (at least not the one she has) and she can't wear nice clothing with it. So, I purchased one from BestBuy for $100 off. I was able to buy the watch, a sport band in her favorite color, and a dress band. I am hoping she enjoys it. If not, oops!
