Mother’s Day is May 12 and for some it’s sooner, as most Latinos celebrate this special day on May 10th. That means you’ve got less than a week to get your mamasita the perfect gift. If her eyes are always glued to her smartphone or tablet, then chances are she’s a Techie mom. And what do busy Techie moms want? Chic and practical gadgets, of course! Who needs another blender or vacuum? A techy-savvy mama wants something that will make her busy life easier. After all, being a super mami isn’t easy, you know.Take a look at the following gadgets we love and believe your mamasita would appreciate. Remember to share with us how you’re telling your tech-savvy mom how much you love her come Mother’s Day.
1. Sony NEX-3N Camera
Spring and Summer are filled with so many photo-worthy moments. From Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to graduations, birthdays and Quinceneras! It is the perfect time to ensure you capture those special spring memories on camera. Having a smartphone camera to capture these awesome moments just won’t do, which it is why it is essential to have the right camera with the right features. Fortunately, Best Buy can help. With Best Buy’s low price guarantee, you’ll get the latest technology at the best price. Plus, I have a big crush on Sony’s NEX-3N camera in white. Available at BestBuy.com under $500. Isn’t it super fabulous?! If you have a social-savvy mom, you may want to consider getting her the NEX-5R version, as it has Wi-Fi sharing capabilities. I also hear that if you bring your old camera to Best Buy you could trade it in for a Best Buy gift card.
2. Designer Digital Picture Frame
Digital Photo Frames always seem to make the Gifts for Mom list. However, I for one have never been a big fan of the regular boring frames. Now you know a man designed them, right? Listen up guys, women do not want something in their homes that will clash with their home decor. That’s why your MMA/Boxer Champ or Hot Chick Corona Beer Posters will never go up on the walls. It’s just not going to happen. But if you get her a designer digital picture frame that blends in with her home, like this shown Vera Wang Love Noir 8″ LCD Digital Photo Frame she may negotiate with your home ideas since now she may believe you have good taste. There’s also a Waterford 8″ LCD Photo Frame Crystal design that may attract the mamma’s that have their crystal collection. My mom would love that one! Lucky for you BestBuy has a special offer for an additional 25% off select digital photo frames. View offer here.
The phablet that’s still rated pretty high will definitely make mom more productive throughout her busy day. This smartphone has a screen that feels like a tablet, the Note 2 brandishes a larger 5.5-inch 1280×720 AMOLED display and comes with a more intuitive and accurate S-Pen. It’s got a great 8-Megapixel rear-facing camera with awesome shooting capability, and with a 1.6GHz quadcore processor and 2GB of RAM can handle the Note 2’s impressive multitasking prowess. Because we all know every mom is a pro at multitasking. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is available at Sprint. Plus did you know you could sell back your old phone and get up to $300 credit?! Take a look at Sprint BuyBack program for more info.
Take a look at this organizer! I seriously need and want one of these. No more tangling chargers and adapters in mom’s bag. This little companion could help keep her large tote nice and neat. Plus, this Cocoon Grid-IT! Organizing System is affordable ($25)!
5. Up by Jawbone
I’ve used Fitbit in the past and loved it. However, the problem with Fitbit is it’s small size. Unfortunately I lost that little gadget in 2 weeks. Which is why I recommend the Up band ($130) by Jawbone. The Up band takes almost no effort to sync and it’s so simple to set up. The water-resistant band plugs right into a phone’s headphone jack to upload steps taken, calories burned, and sleep patterns, plus its battery lasts up to 10 days. And most likely because its a wristband, she won’t lose it like I lost my Fitbit. Grrr!
What do you think ladies? Is there a gadget here you would like to receive for Mother’s Day? Of course if mom is not very tech-savvy, then a nice spa getaway is always appreciated.
But most important, you could never go wrong with a hug and ‘I LOVE YOU & APPRECIATE YOU MOM’.
