We live in the technological age and when it comes to Mother’s Day gifting, long gone are the day of flowers, gift cards and macaroni crafts. To wow your mom in 2011, you’ll need to check out these 5 tech Mother’s Day gifts.
When it comes to innovative technology, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more awesome gift to get for your mom on Mother’s day than a tablet. Tablets are user-friendly, portable, customizable and are overall awesome. Tablets are great for techies and tech novices alike and their ability to browse the internet, take pictures, read eBooks and well… just about everything, make tablets the perfect gift for moms on Mother’s Day. There are lots of tablets on the market, but the iPad 2 is currently the reigning champion and for as low as $599, it’s also affordable.
Your mother brought you into the world and now it’s your turn to bring her into the world of technology with a new laptop or netbook computer. Even if “mommy dearest” already has a laptop, desktop, or netbook computer, technology is constantly evolving and she’d greatly appreciate a bump up in the tech world. Laptops are generally inexpensive and can even cost under $400 – which isn’t too much to allow your mom to host video chats with the family, keep up with the online world and stay connected with technology.
Tablets can do a large variety of things and can serve as great eBook readers, but they can sometimes be overkill. eBook readers are great tablet-like gadgets that can serve as a non-threatening introduction to technology – all while still being awesome in their own right. I know from personal experience that gifting an eBook reader for Mother’s Day is a guaranteed smash hit and with eReaders on the market that cost as low as $114, this tech gift is a “no-brainer.”
Mothers are the center of the family and for that reason, what would be a more fitting Mother’s Day gift than a new smartphone? Smartphones are great because they go above and beyond any other phones on the market. A smartphone will make it easier for your mother to organize her contacts, browse the internet on the go, video chat, have a little bit of fun and keep up with the entire family.
Digital cameras and video records are an inexpensive and thoughtful Mother’s Day gift. Moms are always in the “mix” when it comes to their families and a digital camera and video camera will allow your mom to keep track of all the precious memories of the family.
