Moms come in all types – from the business executive to the stay-at-home kind. But whatever the type of mom, there’s a hot tech gift item that will perfectly suit her.
Here are 5 cool choices for the special mom on your list.
Ogio X-Train 2 Athletic Pack
If mom likes to head to the office then off to the gym, or vice versa, she’ll appreciate a bag like the Ogio X-Train. It’s designed for both work and working out, with a padded space to hold a laptop, and another spot for storing fitness gear. There’s a removable strap for attaching a bike helmet, a top compartment for holding your gym clothes, and even side cinch straps for a yoga mat or towel. If mom loves to go on weekend hikes, the US$80 bag can also double as a hydration pack.
Amazon $10/Mo. eBook Subscription
For $120, you can grab an ebook-loving mom a year’s worth of all-she-can-read books from Amazon through its new $10/mo. option. It will give her access to an unlimited selection of books, which she can read on her Kindle (you know, the one you got her last year), or the Kindle app on a compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. More than 750,000 titles are included, ranging from bestsellers to classics.
Panasonic SD-YR2500 Bread Maker
Anyone who is legitimately allergic to gluten, or just wishes to remove it from their diet, has one major issue: bread. How do you consume good-tasting, gluten-free bread? The best way is to, of course, make it yourself. And the gluten-hating mom on your list can do so using the Panasonic SD-YR2500, which allows for making any type of bread she wants, from basic white, to French, pizza and pasta dough, and yes, even gluten-free using the short-rise mode. The device will keep track of the ambient temperature and adjust to ensure an optimal bake. Want to spice up your loaf? Add some raisins, nuts, or other food through the dispenser. This breadmaker isn’t available yet, but mom will appreciate the IOU – it’ll be worth the wait!
HP Spectre x360 Laptop
Mom might appreciate this versatile Spectre x360 notebook because it can be used in a variety of modes: as a standard laptop for work, tented for playing games, going over spreadsheets, or watching a movie, upright and folded over for viewing recipes in the kitchen or sharing presentations with others, and in tablet mode for curling up with a good ebook. It’s sturdy so she can take it anywhere, and lightweight at just 3.17 lbs.
Jabra Move Wireless Headphones
Wireless headphones are all the rage, and any mom will appreciate the freedom of being able to listen to tunes without having to worry about tangling cords. (Moms, after all, are always multi-tasking.) The $110 Jabra Move headphones are rugged, so mom can wear them virtually anywhere, but comfortable with cushioned, angled earcups. Mom can also pair them with her smartphone for making calls. And they offer a long, 8-hour battery life so they can last through a full work day. Go bold and get her a pair in red.
