Bluetooth phone ringer?

My Secret Santa has a mobile phone that she's continually missing calls/texts on because she leaves it in her bag, and it drives her daft. Is there any sort of small wireless ringer/buzzer/light that will go off when the phone does? Small enough for a keychain, ideally.

I can't speak to how well it actually works, but what you are looking for does exist.

It seems another device will be equally likely to be left in the bag, or a drawer, and any manual fiddling needed to pair the devices together (and keep another gadget charged) may make the whole thing an exercise in frustration.

So -- alternative solutions might include
Salling Clicker (mac, windows) if she has bluetooth in her desktop/laptop.

I read mention of clicker+growl offering incoming call notifications but since my phone is not "phone event" capable, I'm unable to test that out.

Fossil does have a bluetooth watch, but apparently it only comes in mens design (and it is $250).

There's (a) kiosk(s) at our local mall that sell the type of things quin and simbiotic link to. Might be worth checking at your mall.
