Ideally, an accessory you're actually intersted in and know a little something about, like a tablet or phone. Does she like the new iPhone 6, and why? What model iPad is that (because you are looking to buy one for a friend...)? What program is that she's running; What does it do? It's a little intrusive, sure, but most likely she'll be more than happy to entertain a conversation about something she's already doing (and predictably enjoying). Better yet you're not directly hitting on her. You're more, eh, hitting on her accessory?
