She’s got a color-coded to-do list, a zero-unread inbox and a closet even Tan France would be jealous of. Yep, we’re talking about your most organized friend (or sister-in-law, coworker, cousin, etc.), one of the most difficult people to shop for this holiday season. One thing she will want, though? All the gadgets that help keep all her ducks in a row. Here, 13 tech gifts all the neat freaks on your list are sure to flip for (and then add a to-do about writing you a thank-you note, of course).
13 Tech Gifts for Your Most Organized Friends
Irobot Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum
Who wouldn’t love a little less time spent cleaning and a little more spent alphabetizing the spice rack (JK…kinda)? Set and forget this sensor-navigated vacuum that cleans carpeted, tiled and hardwood floors at the touch of a button.
Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ Batteries
Don’t forget to complete your gifts by remembering the Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries for all the presents that need long-lasting power. Batteries help their holiday run smoothly by giving their gadgets the energy to run all season long...and then some. Drop them into stockings or wrap them up with your gift. ’Tis the season to be powered up.
Mark & Graham Leather Tech Envelope
This sleek leather pouch holds all those pesky cords—plus cards, pens, a phone and a tablet— neatly in place so she can easily stow and go. Personalize the front with a monogram or message for a special touch.
Away ‘the Carry-on’
But who even needs to organize all those cords when your luggage charges your phone for you? This super-light and sleek carry-on suitcase contains two mesh compartments: one for folded clothes and one for harder items and shoes, plus a water-resistant laundry bag to keep dirty clothes away from clean ones.

Apple Watch 5
Create a to-do list, set reminders and text friends on the go with the just-released Series 5 Apple Watch. Plus, the new version has an always-on retina display and an 18-hour battery life so it’s perfect for your favorite go-getter.
Ziku Wireless Charging Stand For Apple Watch, Iphone And Airpods
And now that you’ve completed her personal tech suite, charging all her gadgets on separate adapters and outlets (and on unsightly cords) is so last season. This handy charging stand keeps all her Apples in one basket, so to speak. (No USB cables in sight.)
Buy It ($60)
No one loves the reassurance that their devices are close at hand more than your type-A bestie, which is why these new waterproof Bluetooth trackers are perfect for her. She can “stick” a Tile onto any of her belongings (phone, wallet, TV remote, keys) and then use the app to make them “ring” if she ever misplaces them. But wait, what about her phone? The app syncs with Alexa, so she can use that trusty technology to activate the Tile when away from her home screen.
Moleskine Smart Writing Set
Our never-ending nostalgia for note-taking is outpaced only by our desire to access said scribbles anytime, anywhere. This smart notebook and pen set transfers handwritten notes into an app for instant transcription and sharing.

Brother Ptd210 Label Maker
Because, of course. (Just don’t forget the batteries.)
Kasa Smart Wi-fi Plug
OK, so it’s admittedly not the sexiest Christmas gift ever, but this Wi-Fi–enabled plug allows the recipient to turn off the lights, turn on the coffeemaker or even turn on the curling iron with just an Alexa or Google Home command.
Cowin Foldable Noise-cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
An organized mind loves peace and quiet, and these shiny, emerald-green headphones bring just that. Bluetooth-enabled and wireless, they last up to 50 hours on one charge. Plus, their proprietary active noise canceling technology is perfect for balancing the checkbook or catching up on unread emails (especially if the kids are still on holiday break).
Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse
This Bluetooth mouse is as sleek as it is functional. It snaps flat to slip into a purse or carry-on, has a full scroll plane for horizontal and vertical scrolling, and has an ergonomic design that conforms comfortably to your hand. She’ll be clearing that inbox in no time.
Amazon Echo Show 5
The multitasker’s ultimate match: The new home device looks like a pretty alarm clock with a customizable watch face, but it’s so much more. Stream cooking videos, video chat with family and friends, listen to music, watch movies and TV, and create to-do and shopping lists all with just your voice. (Now if only we could say, “Alexa, do all our Christmas shopping for us.”)
