Bandolier CrossbodyPhone Case and Wallet
($95 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 clothes with some damn pockets.” Since Covid, I find mine more practical than ever — no more digging into your bag for all that touchless pay action — just lift the phone up from over your shoulder, and beep! It really is a winning Mother’s Day tech gift. You’ll rarely see me without mine.
($60 for glasses + $25/ea for toppers)
Shokz OpenRun Pro Sport Headphones
Christina recently fell in love with these incredible headphones that let her listen to her music, podcasts, or audiobooks all without blocking out the world around her thanks to bone conductive technology. Yes it’s a splurge. But if she bikes, runs, lifts weights or just likes to do work around the house with headphones on, Shokz OpenRun Pro headphones allow moms do (safely) what we do best — always keeping one ear open for the kids.
Monogrammed Gadget Clutch
($109 on sale plus personalization, Mark & Graham)
These days, we can’t leave home without a phone, our AirPods, an extra mask or two, hand wipes, a charging cable… which is why this gorgeous leather tech case is such a great Mother’s Day tech gift, blending practicality and style for any mobile mom. That monogram is the cherry on top. Lots more fun stuff at this shop if you want to browse.
By the way, these charging cables are fantastic and in this color, it makes one a practical and pretty Mother’s Day tech gift — and a nice upgrade to that gadget clutch.
Kodak Step Instant Photo Printer
If she’s always too busy to get all those photos off her mobile phone (raising my hand), she’ll be thrilled to be able to print them so easily using Bluetooth from any iOS or Android device. No ink to change either! Perfect for family reunions, or weekend trips together.
Phone Soap UV Sanitizer
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 this uber popular Phone Soap system is now back in stock (at normal prices) after a pandemic-induced rush that led to limited supplies and price gouging. They’re popular for good reason, but a better Mother’s Day gift when they’re not a zillion dollars.
Mom Tattoo iPhone Case by Tricia O’Quinn
($18.75 on sale and up, Society 6)
Now that we change phone cases like we change earrings, she’d probably love this fab new accessory to protect her phone. It comes available for basically every iPhone model — though if hers is older than an iPhone X, maybe an iPhone trade-in is the Mother’s Day tech gifts she needs most.
Native Union has always offered an elegant range of practical but stylish cords, accessories and docking solutions for devices, and now I love their latest: A modern, simple charging kit that’s perfect for a nightstand or desk. It holds both an iPhone and AirPods magnetically, while charging so she’s always starting the morning at 100%.So to speak.
Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Portable Bluetooth Speaker
I fell in love with this gorgeous Beoplay portable speakers in multiple colors a few years back, and now they’re out with this upgrade that does way more than play music, like offering Alexa support. Considering it’s from Bang & Olufsen, it happens to do the music playing amazingly well — but audio books and podcasts will sound just fine too whether she’s in a hotel room, at a desk, or just bringing into the bathroom and locking the door.
