Top Tech Gifts for Mother’s Day
Though every day is a day to appreciate your mother’s hard work, Mother’s Day is the one time of year moms can pretty much bank on a card, phone call from the kids, or bouquet of flowers. But this year, think outside the box and show aamom you care with one of these cool tech gadgets that make her life a little easier.
Digital Picture Frame
All moms love seeing their children’s smiling faces and with hundreds of pictures probably stashed on her phone, she will love an easy way to display her favorites. The latest digital picture frames boast tons of storage, video capabilities, and remote access, so she can easily manage her pictures from anywhere.
Wine Cork Remover
Help mom unwind a little quicker with an electric wine cork remover. Rechargeable batteries, built-in foil removers, and speedy cork removal with the press of a button mean happy hour has never been happier.
Mom will appreciate the gift of health with a Fitbit health tracker. She can track everything from steps and calories burned to sleep and continuous heart monitoring. And just in time for Mother’s Day, Fitbit has teamed up with designer Tory Burch to create gorgeous bands, so mom can track her fitness in style.
Help mom get a smooth start to her day with a Keurig coffee maker. Single-serving pods quickly make a perfect cup every time with no messy cleanup. And for the eco-friendly alternative to disposable pods, try the reusable Keurig pods, so mom can fill with her favorite grind and still whip up a steaming cup of Joe in no time.
Click and Grow
Whether mom has a green thumb or not, she will love how easy it is to grow fresh herbs with the Click and Grow planter. Simply pop in the starter seed cartridge and a few batteries, and voila, mom is a gardener! The smart pot monitors the plant’s vitals and lets you know when to refill the water reservoir. No sunlight? No problem. Some models come equipped with a discreet LED grow light, so mom will be enjoying homemade pesto in no time.
Portable Phone Charger
This is the perfect gift for the mom who is always on the go (and let’s be honest, what mom isn’t?). Between mom’s calendar, email, camera, and web browsing, her smartphone likely gets heavy use, and there’s nothing more frustrating than realizing you’re running out of juice halfway through the day. Mom can stash a slim portable phone charger in her purse or car, so she can charge up without slowing down.
Speaking of smartphones, if mom is an avid photographer, she might enjoy a little more power in her smartphone camera. Pick up a small lens attachment for her phone camera and she can capture fish-eye, wide-angle, and up to 15x macro photos. The portable lens easily snaps onto both front and rear facing cameras.
Whichever one you choose to give mom this Mother’s Day, she’ll love both the sentiment and her new gadget. After all, there are only so many homemade macaroni necklaces one woman can wear.
