5 Great Tech Gifts For Mother’s Day

May 10, 2017

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, and if that’s news to you then you could probably use a few gift ideas.

It can be hard picking out the right gift that tells someone how much you appreciate all the work they put in to being a great mother. In many cases, it’s the thought that counts, but it’s always nice to be able to surprise you mom or wife with a gift they really want. Knowing that no two mothers are the same, we’ve come up with a few gift ideas for mothers of all kinds. So if you’re still stuck with what to buy, here are a few ideas to help show your gratitude.

For the bookworm mother: Kindle Paperwhite

If your mother can often be found with her nose in a book then no doubt you’ve browsed through the bookstore already. But instead of picking up one of the latest bestsellers and hoping she like it, why not give her the gift of unlimited books in the palm of her hand. The Kindle Paperwhite is the latest version of the massively popular e-book technology. While some will say it can’t compete to having an actual book in your hands, the Paperwhite has too many benefits to ignore. With a capacity of thousands of books and a massive search database, you’d be hard-pressed not to find any book you’re looking for. And with the non-backlit feature you can avoid the concern about the screen damaging your eyes. It’s like having access to an entire library she can fit into her purse.

For the film-loving mother: Projector

Maybe your mother prefers her stories to be told through motion picture and in that case, this is the gift of a theatre experience right at home. While televisions continue to get bigger and the screens continue to provide a crisper image, there’s an even easier and cheaper way to get the big screen feel. With a simply projector (no need to break the bank with it) you can connect your computer to the projector and make your own cinema using any blank wall in the house. It’s a real game changer for home entertainment and your mother can enjoy her favourite movies on a whole new level.

For the fitness-buff mother: Fitbit

While reading books and watching films can be great for some mothers, others are more interested in getting out and getting some exercise. Whether it’s a morning walk or 3 hours at the gym, some people just love to stay active no matter their age. Fitbit is a great and easy way to keep track of that fitness. The small wristband is able to track your heartbeat, the steps you take in a day, your active minutes, even you sleep cycle. It links up to an app on your phone and keeps you updated on your exercise plan throughout the day. It’s a great way to stay focused on healthy activity and tracking your achievements.

For the nostalgic mother: HP Sprocket Photo Printer

Of course one of the things most important to any mother is preserving memories. They want to be able to look back on the great family times and share them with others. In the age of technology, it’s becoming less common to have photos developed and they mostly stay in their digital forms on your computer. Luckily, in this age of technology, there are always ways to convert those digital photos into physical photos. The HP Sprocket Photo Printer allows you to print photos off your computer as legitimate photos. Your mother can find those beloved memories and new memories and print them off to add to the photo album.

For any mother: Flowers

Sometimes a cliché gift is a cliché for a good reason. As I said before, it’s really the thought that count here and being able to give your mother or wife a symbol of your gratitude and acknowledge all the hard work they do is appreciated. Therefore, you can’t go wrong with a nice bouquet of beautiful flowers to brighten her day. Even if you can’t be there to celebrate the day with them, you can have flower delivered, or you can sign up to have flowers delivered every Sunday for the next moth.

Beyond these suggestions, whatever you decide to give the mother in you life will no doubt be perfect, as long as it includes a kiss, a hug and a big thank you!
