6. Echo Show 15
The new Echo Show 15 is amazing. I bought one when they first came out and I love it! It features a 15.6-inch HD smart display and 5 MP camera. Add Alexa-powered widgets to keep everyone on track with shared calendars, personal sticky notes, to-do lists, shopping lists and assigned reminders. She can use it as a photo frame to display digital pictures and choose portrait or landscape orientation. I bought the tilt stand ($29.99) rather than hanging it up on the wall, but that’s a personal preference.
