Alexa, please streamline my life. Despite the intrigue of making the world’s best girlfriend my BFF, I have never been one to rely on modern-day tech to help me navigate my life. While everyone is on an iPhone 100, I’m holding tight to an old dinged-up version until it finally bites the dust. Kindles are cute but make the pleasure of dog-earing a page impossible. And, of course, walking back and forth to check on my old school tea kettle isn’t just a necessity—it’s my cardio. But still, the conversation surrounding the best home gadgets holds strong.
Growing up, I lived by the principle that shortcuts were never the best way. That whole earn-it-and-learn-it mentality got me through a lot of years (with success). But lately, I find myself enamored by my life’s luxe little upgrades. Maybe the Nest installed in my friend’s mid-century mod Hyde Park home would be great to keep our home energy efficient. (Bonus: I’ve heard that a Ring doorbell is the easiest way to avoid chatty neighbors who swing by unannounced.)

Petlibro Automatic Dog & Cat Feeder
Last year when we got our pup Irie, I tried getting my kids to feed her twice a day. Confession: That worked for about a month. That explains why I’m forever grateful that this automatic feeder exists. It sits neatly in my laundry room and feeds her a few times a day—and takes the load off of mom.

Oster FPSTBW8225 Electric Wine Opener
Opening a chilled bottle of red after a long day and hearing the cork’s satisfying pop is legit de-stressor, so I wasn’t sure I was new-school enough for an electric wine bottle opener. But in a pinch, (especially during a party when all eyes are on you), this one does come in handy.
Best Gadgets for the Skincare-Obsessed
Omnilux Contour FACE
LED light treatments both to boost collagen and treat acne-prone skin are a dime a dozen in the marketplace—and run the gamut on price. I’m partial to this pick for me and this one for my tween daughter, both from Omnilux.
ZIIP Nano Current Device
Another facial microcurrent device is this pick that I’m coveting by ZIIP. Camille swears by it, and it features program settings and a corresponding app, making it another one at the top of my wishlist.
