Others have mentioned a recirculater pump. You state your concern is wasted water. My view, I would ask if a recirculator pump saves money as it does use electricity to circulate the water and I believe it puts extra wear on your hot water heater.
For us our electric hot water heater is in the garage close to the shower so our wait for a shower is minimal.

My truly simple solution. You turn your shower control to hot only. You turn the water on while you take your clothes off by the time you are ready to step in the water is running hot or will soon be.
My guess is a recirculation pump does not save money. As you noted it use electricity. It would also cause the water heater to come on a little more offen. The reason for the pump in my opinion is convince.
