Gadgets You Can Gift Your Mother On This Mother’s Day
Your mother may not be as up-to-date as you are on the recent technology trends, but that doesn’t mean that a carefully chosen Gadget wouldn’t make her life easier. While flowers and breakfast in bed are still great gifts for Mother’s Day, you may want to try a different approach this year and give your mother something she will use long after the holidays. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite devices and services that any mother, tech-savvy or not, will love.
Apple iPad pro
We think the iPad mini is the best little tablet for most people, and that includes parents who could use a slightly larger screen to watch videos, read text messages, and look at photos of their children (or grandchildren) on Facebook. The 2021 model with the A15 Bionic chip works well even when using more than one application in Split View, which allows mom to stream her favorite show on Netflix while easily responding to messages quickly. We appreciate the design updates that Apple has made to this model, so that the Mini looks more like a smaller iPad Air than ever before. Thanks to its compact size, it is easy to throw in a bag and take with you, and thanks to its 12-hour battery, it will last all day. Not to mention that the new front cameras will keep mom in the picture when she looks at the face for the third time today.
Belkin UV sanitizer + wireless charger
Your mom might have become a clean freak in the last year (who can blame her?) and the Belkin UV sanitizer and wireless charger are a good device that can keep you close to your door. It uses UV rays to eliminate 99% of bacteria on keys, cards, rings and other small items that your mother could take anywhere. Yes, this includes your Smartphone, and once it is completely disinfected, your mother can set the handset to turn on thanks to the built-in 10W wireless charger located on the top of the lid. The device is silent during disinfection and, as a bonus, it comes with its own cable and wall adapter, which allows you to use it immediately.
Increase your mom’s morning coffee routine with the Ember Mug, a self-heating smart mug that keeps drinks at the right temperature for up to 1.5 hours or all day when the mug is stored on the powered coaster. It has a temperature range between 120 and 145 Degrees Fahrenheit, which allows your mother to adjust how hot she wants her drink to be. There is also an accompanying app that allows you to store preset temperatures for your favorite drinks, track your caffeine intake, adjust the color of the LED light on the front of the Cup and much more. The recent Version is available in a pretty Rose Gold color, as well as in White, Black, Gold, silver and copper.
Fitbit Inspire 2
After the last few years, your mother is probably eager to get out of the house more often – especially when the weather improves – and maybe she wants to go for more regular walks and errands in her neighborhood. The Fitbit Inspire 2 is a cost-effective and easy-to-use way to track your steps and sleep, as well as other statistics that indicate our general fitness level. New users can also get a free year of Fitbit Premium to add even more Fitness Guides and Meditation features to the already great app.
Instant Pot Duo
For busy moms who like to cook but have little time, an Instant Pot is a thoughtful gift. Although it can be used as a slow cooker, rice cooker or yogurt maker, it is especially useful as a pressure cooker. It can reduce the cooking time of many dishes, especially stews and stews, by a couple of hours. Unlike its hearth equivalent, the Instant Pot can also be pressurized and stay there without having to babysit children all the time. A built-in timer means it turns itself off, while a keep warm function does exactly what you expect. Thanks to the popularity of the Instant Pot line, there is also a large selection of recipes online that your mother can prepare with her new cooking appliance. For more information on how to get the most out of it, check out our Instant Pot guide.
Apple Watch SE
The Apple Watch is arguably the most sought-after accessory for iPhone users, and the Apple Watch SE is a good entry-level option for moms who want to stay up to date more comfortably. It has all the essential features you would expect from a smart watch, including smart alerts, activity and exercise tracking, built-in GPS and Apple Pay. The Retina display of the SE is 30% larger than that of the Series 3 and, in addition to a waterproof design, has features such as fall detection, high and low heart rate notifications and emergency SOS. Although the SE does not have ECG or blood oxygen tracking functions like the Series 7, It is still a good gift for mom that allows her to stay in touch with those she loves without taking out her iPhone every second.
