From a smart baby monitor to a mug that ensures her tea is always at the temperature she she prefers, here are the gadgets Alvina Patel Buxani can’t do without:

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

This light simulates sunrise and sunset for a better sleep and helps with jet lag. 

Philips Hue Wakeup Light

I love to read, especially before bed. I use this device so that I am not distracted by texts on my phone. 

Ember Temperature Control Mug

I drink warm tea throughout the day and this mug keeps my tea at the exact temperature I like, especially in the cold winter months 

Nanit Plus Camera

I use this to watch my baby while he sleeps. Its app gives me insights into his sleep, the temperature of the room, how many times he woke up in the night. 

AirPod Pro

I was never able to use the original AirPods but the Pro has a soft silicone tip that is more comfortable, and the noise cancelling is key when walking around New York City. 

On her phone:

ESPN: I am a sports fanatic, so I keep track of all scores and news quickly and even watch a game on the go. 

Resy: Painless way to make reservations at the best restaurants throughout the USA. Instagram: It’s my guilty pleasure but also a good way to keep up with friends, family and pop culture. 

Farfetch: For all my fashion needs; I am always shopping on the go. 

Dark Sky: I always check Dark Sky to know if it is warm, cold, raining or snowing when I leave my home or office.
