Ten Mom-Friendly Tech Gadgets
With Mother’s Day fast approaching it can be hard to find that perfect gift for mom. If you’re anything like me you want to buy something she’ll enjoy and use but there’s part of you that wants to get her a tech toy. Believe it or not some studies show that consumers spent 9% more on gadgets for Mother’s Day last year. It looks like Mom will enjoy that tech toy this Mother’s Day!
Here’s a list of ten Mom-friendly Tech Gadgets:
- Shampoo Rinse Cup
The shampoo rinse cup makes it a lot easier to wash those kids. It has a watertight band that rests against the forehead and helps to keep water out of the child’s eyes. What a replacement for the hand I used to have (which sometimes leaked by the way).
- Help Mom With Her Computer
My Mom, like many of others, has a computer and uses it daily. Mom sometimes can call me up and ask for some help but it’s really difficult to visualize what is wrong. Sometime’s it’s just easier to see it and fix the issue for her. Connect to Mom’s PC with a free service called CrossLoop. This service allows you to share Mom’s screen and fix her issues easily and without traveling (if she’s far away).
- Digital Photo Frames
Digital photo frames are a great gift for Mom. What a great way to remind her of family with a tech gadget like this. These frames can range anywhere from around 60 bucks to 150 for normal frames. Simply buy one of these frames, load your favorite family photos and give it to Mom for a unique gift.
- Digital Keychain Camera
A simple yet affordable gift is this Digital Keychain Camera. Sure its not the greatest quality. It’s not going to match up to a nice SLR camera but it can do the trick to capture those moments when without a camera. Sure cell phones have cameras but does your Mom know how to get the pictures to her computer? Try this on Mother’s Day. Comes with software!
- iRobot Roomba Vacuuming Robot
If you’re feeling extra generous this Mother’s Day season you could give a gift that keeps on… cleaning. I’m not too sure how effective these self-cleaning robots are but she might like the extra time she has now that she doesn’t have to vacuum all the time. At a base price of $119.99 it can’t be that bad. Check out the link above to see the different models.
- Music Players
Every Mom must like some sort of music. Check out some of the new music players on the market. Some of the small iPod Shuffles are very very small and easy to use. Heck, there’s only five buttons.. how hard can it be? Also, if she has any issues, use number two above to connect to her PC and install her software for her. CrossLoop is free and easy… Why not?
- Digital Cameras
What Mom doesn’t like to take pictures? Mothers often like to save memories in the form of a photo. Give the gift of a digital camera this Mother’s Day. Digital camera prices are coming down and you might check out some retailers that have pink colored cameras, that is, if your mom likes pink.
- Smart Shopper Grocery List Maker
This little device is sure to save Mom time and effort at the store. Simply enter in all the items and it automatically categorizes the list and prints a copy to make shopping easier and more efficient. Check out the link above.
- Pink Cooking Gear
Mom makes a mean home-made macaroni and cheese. Why not have her make it in style? KitchenAid has tons of pink-colored cooking gear for "Cook for the Cure" for breast cancer. Grab some pink gear for mom and help a good cause.
- Wireless Digital Rain Gauge
Let’s say Mom has a garden. Mom wants to check how much rain Mom got in that garden. Mom doesn’t want to walk outside every time to check that rain. She wants to be able to glance at a gauge that tells her. Check out the wireless digital rain gauges available here. This is sure to wow her and allow her to check on how much rain her garden got last night.
That’s it. Make sure your Mom has a great Mother’s Day. Remember it’s the thought that counts .. oh yeah.. also remember that she’s the one that brought you into this world. Show her some respect .. wow her with some gifts and tell her how awesome she is for being Mom.
