Mother’s Day Tech Gifts Any Mom Would Love
Mother’s Day is May 13 this year, which means time is running out to find the perfect gift for the most important woman in your life. If finding the right gift for such an important lady is a little daunting this year, don’t worry. We have you covered. Whether she’s tech savvy or still needs help working the remote, these tech gifts are sure to make any mom’s day.
Amazon Echo Show
The Amazon Echo Show is the latest improvement to the Echo and one that’s sure to be a hit with moms this Mother’s Day. With the Echo Show, Alexa can now show you things instead of just telling you. Just ask Alexa and she’ll show you videos, song lyrics, recipes, to-do lists, and much more. The Echo Show can even be linked to compatible security cameras and baby monitors to help busy moms see who’s at the front door or make sure the baby is sleeping.
Lighting Charger Key Chain
It’s easy for moms on the go to charge their phones and stay connected with this sophisticated looking leather tassel key chain from Casetify which contains a hidden lightening charging cable. Made of lamb leather and available in black, pink, white, and tan, the Casetify tassel key chain easily clips to purses, luggage, diaper bags, or even a belt loop.
Fossil RFID-blocking Wallet
New passports and many credit cards now have something called RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips that emit radio frequency signals to make it faster and easier to read your information when going through airport security or paying with credit cards. Unfortunately, this could also make it easier for thieves to steal your information simply by walking by you with an RFID reader. Although National Public Radio reports the risk of such theft is low in the United States, it’s often better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to our moms. Give your mom some piece of mind and a new fashion statement with an RFID-blocking wallet from Fossil. Fossil offers a wide range of RFID-blocking wallets to meet just about every price point (wallets start at $40.00) and to fit every mom’s sense of style with bold colors, playful designs, like mermaid tails and florals, and classic brown leather.
Click and Grow Smart Garden 3
Whether the mom you’re shopping for this Mother’s Day has a green thumb or kills every plant she gets, the Click and Grow Smart Garden 3 will make her feel like an expert gardener. This compact smart gardening system keeps plants watered, fed, and provides them the perfect amount of light with special LED grow lights. The Smart Garden 3 comes with three basil plants, but there are many other types of plants to choose from, such as chili peppers, mini tomatoes, strawberries, herbs, lavender, and petunias.
OXO Vacuum Wine Preserver
For the mom who likes to unwind with a glass of wine after a long day of “momming,” the OXO SoftWorks Vacuum Wine Preserver makes a great gift. This wine perserver is a hand pump that removes air from inside the wine bottle, helping to prevent oxidation of the wine so Mom can enjoy a glass or two of wine without needing to polish off the whole bottle. It should be noted that getting a wine preserver without a bottle of wine is like getting a new toy without batteries, so make sure to include a bottle of wine!
Shower Head with Builtin Bluetooth Speaker
Moms of young children rarely get a minute to themselves. For many, the few minutes they do get are in the shower. Make those few minutes as relaxing as possible by giving the mom in your life the Moxie showerhead + wireless speaker by KOHLER®. This showerhead has 60 angled nozzles to provide a fully enveloping spray and a removable wireless speaker that plays up to 7 hours on a single charge. The speaker is available in four vibrant colors, including cherry red and chartreuse, and is completely removable so it can be used anywhere.
The best gift you can give your mom or the mother of your children this year is a something that shows her she’s appreciated, loved, and cared for. These tech gifts are just a few ideas to help get you started. How will you show the mom in your life just how important she is this Mother’s Day?
