Top 5 Tech Gifts and Gadgets to give Mom this Mother’s Day

Instead of going the boring and traditional route like buying her flowers and chocolates, why don’t you make her feel extremely special by buying her a high tech gift she can really use? Below are the top 5 tech gifts and gadgets to buy mom this Mother’s Day.

5. Wrap a Nap—this luxurious pillow isn’t exactly a “gadget” per say but its innovative yet highly simply design will blow any sleep-deprived mother away. This is because it acts as three items in one: a plush pillow that allows her to sleep comfortably even in the most awkward places and position— like upright in an office chair during her lunch break; earmuffs to silence unwanted noises like a spouse’s snoring; and a blindfold to block out sun’s rays to ensure she sleeps in a little longer when the kids are away. Price:$14.99

4. iWatchz Q series Watchband for iPod nano— this small “clip” attaches to any iPod nano, easily converting it to a stylish watch. Perfect for mothers who are constantly on the go, she’ll be able to make all of her appointments and know when she’s running late for the next PTA meeting while having access to her music library at all times. She can either use the built-in preferences on her iPod to choose particular backgrounds for her watch face or choose a standard white or black watch face for elegant occasions. Watch bands come in a variety of colors including black, white, red, blue and pink. Price: $24.95

3. Zumba Fitness for Nintendo Wii—Perfect for mothers who are trying to get into shape but don’t have the time to go the gym to take professional classes, Zumba Fitness from Majesco Entertainment is a sure fire way for a mother to tone up and exercise in the comforts of her very own home. The game includes 9 different dance styles: Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco and Calypso. Price: $34.96 at Wal-Mart retail stores.

2. G2x by LG Android—If mom doesn’t have a smart phone yet then it’s about time that she’s upgrades. The G2x is the currently the hottest and most demand phone in the biz, but it’s only offered to T-Mobile costumers. This ultra sleek 4-G touch screen has a dual processor which enables it to perform at high speeds. It runs on the Android 2.2 (froyo) operating system though it is rumored to get the Gingerbread update soon. Price: $99.99 with 2 year T-mobile contract

1. iPad 2—The new and improved ultra light weight iPad2 is the ultimate gift to give this mother’s day. With it, she can do everything from writing to-do lists, catching up on some reading, video chatting with her relatives that live on the other side of the country, to even watching how-to-cooking shows on YouTube when preparing meals in the kitchen. She can even pull up educational games whenever the kids are bored. Price: Starts at $499.00

  1. I think the iPad2 is definitely out of my reach at the moment but the Zumba Fitness sounds like a good fun gift that she’d enjoy for sure.

  2. I think most mothers might not like the reference that would be made if you gave her a Zumba Fitness for the Wii. Unless you know she loves to dance or has a goal to get fit, the first might be the best choice a day to pamper herself.

  3. I am getting my mom and IPAD 2. She plays scrabble incessantly in her laptop. maybe she will get out more, now that it will be more portable. here’s to wishful thinking.

  4. @College: I agree. If you know they’re working out with the WII or otherwise, it could be OK, but if not, that could be taken the wrong way.

    @rent: Send me one, too. I never get anything on Mother’s Day. =)

  5. Your no. 2-3 suggestions are great but no. 1 whihc is iPad 2 is way over my budget. :) If I am rich I wouldn’t have a second thought of giving that to my mom. But as for now, I think she will be okay with the other choices.

  6. I was looking for flowers and cake. Thank you for the suggestions. I guess I’ll go for the G2x by LG Android. My 55 year old mom is slowly taking technology day by day (she started being active at Facebook and games). Hmm, I feel that she will have fun with it. Happy Mother’s day to all! Give your mother a hug will ya?

  7. Ill also gift G2x by LG Android to my mom on next mother day. Ya! its ideal gift for my mom.
