If you read our post about the best ways to clean and sanitize your phone, you’ll know why moms would be thrilled to get a UV phone sanitizer — and the uber popular Phone Soap system is now back in stock (at normal prices) after a year of limited supplies and price gouging.

BeoSound A1 2nd Gen Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
($239, Amazon)

I fell in love with this gorgeous Beoplay portable speakers a few years back, and now they’re out with this upgrade that does way more than play music, like offering Alexa support. Though considering it’s from Bang & Olufsen, it happens to the music playing amazingly well. And ooh — the colors


Calm meditation + relaxation app subscription: The perfect Mother's Day gift
Calm App Subscription
($69.99/1 year, Calm)
If there’s one thing all moms can use, it’s some peace and quiet — and space to ourselves. We’ve featured 7 of our favorite meditation apps which are all terrific. But my personal favorite remains Calm ( iOS or Android) which has been so helpful in terms of controlling my breathing, managing stress, and even helping me fall asleep more easily in the past year, that here I am, mom to mom, recommending it wholeheartedly for Mother’s Day.
Add a cozy summer-weight throw, and you’ve got a really thoughtful Mother’s Day gift.

That monogram is the cherry on top. Lots more fun stuff at this shop if you want to browse.

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 and ready to hang, thanks to recent sponsor and new favorite thing, TilePix. Plus, that discount! You can also give her a membership, so she can save on all her orders for the next 12 months and pick her own photos.


New Bandolier crossbody iPhone holder with pouch in a limited edition snake skin print

Bandolier Hands-Free Mobile Phone Crossbody Case
($105 for this style, Amazon)

If she likes tech accessories of the designer ilk, I have been raving about Bandolier for ages. I called them the perfect accessory “until women get some clothes with some damn pockets.” And this year, they’re more practical than ever — less digging into your bag for all that touchless pay action — just let the phone up from around your neck, and beep! It really is a winning Mother’s Day tech gift. You’ll rarely see me without mine.

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!)


native union qi charging bundle: sweet tech gifts for mobile moms

Native Union has always offered an elegant range of practical but stylish cords, accessories and docking solutions for your devices, and now I love their latest: it comes with a Curve Case for AirPods, plus a Wireless Charging Dock, any Qi compatible devices, from iPhones (8 or later) to Google Pixe 3, Samsung Galaxy, Note 10 series, and more. It’s such a treat having your phone always at your reach on your desk or nightstand, especially when the stand is a thing of beauty in itself.

($69, Amazon)
A few years ago, NuForce was our top pick for wireless earbuds and they keep upgrading with terrific options. These very comfy, very high-quality earbuds are perfect for workouts (they’re waterproof!), a socially distanced walk around the block, or for streaming Netflix while her partner is passed out next to her in bed. Also, great price. Though if she’s a serious athlete or marathon runner, you’ll want to check out the Premium Wireless Sport Earphones with a mic and 10-hour battery.
Cool tech gifts for moms: Pair Eyewear blueblockers have interchangeable magnetic toppers so she can change her look
Pair Eyewear Blueblocker Glasses
($60 for glasses + $49 for blueblocking, Pair Eyewear)
If she’s totally burnt out from a year of Zoom calls and doom-scrolling, save her eyes with a pair of the cool blue-blocking glasses from Pair Eyewear — you pick the base (the Larkin style is universally flattering and made for adults), include a prescription or reader strength, then what’s really fun is for an extra $25, you can add different “toppers” to help her change out her look every time you see her. Click “top frames” to see all the choices, from solids to patterns (cheetah!) to themed designs, if she happens to be a big Marvel or Harry Potter fan.
