Mother’s day is right around the corner and it can be quite stressful to find the right present for a person who gifted you life itself. Moms can be quite picky about their tech. Are you trying to get your mother a worthy gift? We have put together a curated list of great products. Techie moms will definitely love these.
These gifts are both technologically advanced and user-friendly, so there is something for everybody here. Whether your mom is a tech geek or simply wants tools for making her busy life a bit smoother.
An eReader is always a great tech gift, as it offers the entertainment and simplicity of reading without the compromises of the archaic hobby. If you are looking for a good eReader, our favorite happens to be the Kindle Paperwhite.
This eReader will offer all the tools you need for a good reading experience while offering no gimmicks. Some eReaders are just too technologically advanced. Let’s remember what these are for. We don’t need stunning specs and unparalleled performance, we simply want to read books.
The Kindle Paperwhite comes with weeks of battery life, ample storage for books, all the features Amazon has to offer and even a built-in light that will make reading in the dark a breeze.
The Chromecast is super easy to use and set up, which makes it a great gift for every mother out there. Whether she is following intricate recipes or watching her favorite TV show, your mother will find great pleasure in turning any screen into a great smart TV device.
You could even set it up for her. After that, it’s only a matter of casting your content from any app. Simple and clean.
Pebble or Pebble Steel
Want to get mom a no-hassles wearable? I can think of no better device than the Pebble smart watch. This device offers great battery life, a simple interface and there are even colorful options to choose from. Of course, you can also go for the Pebble Steel if what you want is a classier look.
I also recommended this watch for women, as it is one of the most compact smart watches out there. Android Wear devices and other similar products can be bulky, which can look and feel horrible in women’s usually smaller wrists. Not many smart watch manufacturers cater to women, so Pebble is a must in your list of options.
iPad Mini 3
How about a neat little tablet? We all know Apple tablets are known for their simplicity, as well a their technological prowess. You really can’t go wrong with one, and I happen to be a fan of the compact tablets, especially when looking for a gift for women, who tend to have smaller hands.
The iPad Mini 3 is the perfect balance between portability and performance. There is no doubt mom will enjoy this gifts for months (maybe years) to come.
Belkin WeMo Switch
The Belkin WeMo Switch offers a simple and affordable way to make your home a little smarter. It’s a simple concept, the device allows you to turn devices on or off. And this can be applied to any device that uses an electrical plug, as it replaces the usual outlets we all have.
Perfect Bake scale
Is your mom an avid baker? I know mine is. Any baker would love to have a Perfect Bake scale under her tree. This neat gadget measures your ingredients and the free app companion guides you through baking your favorite pastries. The bundle even comes with an over thermometer, which helps you go through the last baking steps.
Pretty neat, right?
ASUS Transformer Book T100
Mom needs a good laptop, but she probably also wants a good tablet – why not have both? I often recommend the ASUS Transformer Book T100, a Windows 8.1 laptop/tablet hybrid. It’s a very capabpe device and can support any full Windows program (given that the specs can handle it, of course).
The T100 will be a great gift for both work and play.
SuperTooth Disco 4 bluetooth speaker
I put this bluetooth speaker in our list of the best wireless speakers for a good reason. It’s affordable, good looking and very capable. Want a good speaker for mom to jam out to? Make sure she has a good beat with the SuperTooth Disco 4.
It’s impressive what this thing can do, and it’s only about $50!
Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 bluetooth headphones
If your mother is more of a discrete music lover, you may want to give her a nice pair of bluetooth headphones. I recommend the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2. These are small, discrete and a great deal for the price.
Plantronics is known for its quality, and the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 certainly don’t disappoint.
Qi-infinity Portable Wireless Charger
No one likes running out of juice in the middle of the day. A handy portable battery charger may be the best gift you can give mom (or anyone). I recommend the Qi-Finity portable wireless charger.
What makes it special? For one, it is pretty good looking and comes in different colors. It’s pocketable and carries a handy 4,000 mAh battery. And if your mom happens to have a Qi wireless charging-capable device, it also doubles as a wireless charger.
