As much as we love flowers and chocolate for Mother’s Day (seriously, bring it on) we’d never say no to a an awesome Mother’s Day tech gift. Especially one that recognizes we are basically insane on-the-go multi-taskers who manage our entire lives –and our family’s, ahem — with the help of our phones, tablets and laptops.
From audio accessories, to chic cases, to online subscriptions that make our lives better, here are some fantastic Mother’s Day tech gift ideas for all the mobile moms out there.
Which, to be honest, is all of us these days.
Beoplay P2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
I recently fell in love with this gorgeous new portable speaker that does way more than play music. Though considering it’s from Bang & Olufsen, happens to do that amazingly well.
($4.99/mo for a 1 year, Calm)
Monogrammed Tech Clutch
($129, Mark & Graham)
These days, she can’t leave home without a whole lot more than just an Amex card. Which is why this gorgeous leather tech case is such a great Mother’s Day gift, blending practicality and style for any mobile mom. That monogram is the cherry on top.
A Photo Book from Her Instagram Snapshots
($26.00 on sale at Snapbox; plus 25% off when you subscribe to the newsletter)
If she’s always too busy to get all those photos off her mobile phone (raising my hand), she’ll be thrilled to find them printed in this sweet, affordable lay-flat album. Just know you’ll either have to upload your own, or have access to her Instagram account for easy import Or, just give her a gift card. And the time to finally get it done herself.
Tory Burch Leather iPhone 6/6+ Wristlet
If she likes tech accessories of the designer ilk, this stunner from Tory Burch (also in a bright power red and a gorgeous navy) may be the winning Mother’s Day gift. Use it on its own like a wristlet, or pop it in a tote like a wallet. And pssst…of course it will accommodate plenty of Android phones too.
Custom Photo iPhone Otterbox Case
Whether she’s a new mom or a seasoned grandma, we love that this personalized case manages to be ultra-protective and sentimental at the same time. Plus, the chance to gaze at an adorable family photo is a perfect excuse to remember to put the phone down more. (And yes, we’re talking to ourselves here!)
($129.99/iPhone dock + matching cable, Native Union)
One-of-a-kind handmade leather iPad Mini case
($130, Urban Heirlooms on Etsy)
Hum + by Verizon
($10 monthly subscription plus one-time activation + equipment fee, Hum.com or at Verizon wireless stores)
If half her life is spent in the car, a two-year subscription to Hum+ is a fantastic Mother’s Day gift idea. The system combines emergency assistance, vehicle diagnostics, maintenance reminders and speed alerts using her own phone; or upgrade to the Hum x subscription and the car becomes its own mobile hotspot for any little screen junkies in the backseat.
