Apple iPad 9.7-inch
The iPad is one of the most requested gifts by mom. It’s perfect for browsing the web, watching her novelas on Netflix, playing games, and just about anything a typical laptop can do. Your mom wouldn’t need a fancy tablet like the iPad Pro, but the latest 2018 generation iPad could be perfect for her. It has all the latest internals to power her daily activities and supports the Apple Pencil too.
In case she prefers to use it while on the move, or for work, add the Logitech Keys-To-Go, Ultra-light, Ultra-Portable Standalone Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard. She could use it with the ipad or even connect her smartphone if she prefer. It comes in different colors too.

Canon EOS M10
Another most requested Mother’s Day gift is a small, but affordable camera. The EOS M10 camera would be the perfect gift idea, considering that it features a lightweight, comfortably designed body that’s easy to hold and take anywhere. Mom can pack this small camera when she travels overseas to backyard family gatherings. The EOS M10’s small size means it can fit mostly anywhere, from her purse or pocket, without getting in the way. The best part about this camera, besides its compact size, it also takes great quality images and she will also be able to change the lens. Its DIGIC 6 Image Processor also helps capture colorful, detailed videos and photos, even in low-light situations.
What about selfies you asked? Well, this camera also offers a Self Portrait mode that assists grabbing great selfies by adjusting settings that smooth skin tones and artistically blur backgrounds. I personally love how it takes great photos in dark situations.

Is mom getting forgetful? Well we have gift idea for that. The Cube is a small bluetooth tracker that includes an easy-to-use app that can help mom find everyday items faster. All she has to do is attach the small device to anything that she may seem to forget or lose often, like her keys, purse, or camera. When she can’t seem to remember where she last left it, she can pull up the app and ping it to make it ring. She can even find her smartphone, even when its silent, by holding down the Cube button. If the lost item isn’t close enough (within 100ft) to hear it ring, no worries, she can locate the last known location on a map. Sure there’s other trackers on the market, but sometimes those trackers die, since the battery can’t be replaced. Not with the Cube, since you’re able to replace the battery!
