Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so for this week’s blog, we want to take a break to celebrate Mom. We know that your role as a Commercial Lender is hectic, and you might not have time to shop. Because we understand, we did the shopping for you!
We rounded up a list of great tech gifts that will save Mom time, keep her stylish, and make sure she never misses an appointment. These five tech gadgets appeal to everyone, even those who aren’t tech-savvy.
Kate Spade Everpurse. Nothing is worse than being out with the kids and realizing that you have a 20% charge left on your phone. What if your handbag could multitask as well as Mom does? These new, connected handbags look great and charge your phone. Any connected handbag will do the job, really – several companies are making them now. However, if the lady in your life is both tech-savvy and label-conscious, Kate Spade’s version (with wristlets starting at $139) is a clever mix of form and function. The charging technology is hidden behind the lining of the bag, so design and tech mix perfectly. It’s also wireless, so you don’t have to worry about losing the charger.
Google Home or Google Home Mini. Even if your mom/stepmom/wife has no tech skills whatsoever, this great gadget is intuitive and user-friendly. It has a voice-activated module, can be installed anywhere, and has almost limitless functionality. Users can play music on demand, get the weather report, the news, even a recipe. Google Home/Google Home Mini can tell jokes, play trivia, and help you with your morning commute. It supports a variety of apps, including Pandora, Uber, and Domino’s Pizza. It can connect to any smart-home function, so it’ll take care of the lights, garage door, and security system. The good folks at Google are always adding new functionality, too.
iRobot Braava Jet 240 Robot Mop. Okay, it’s not romantic, but unless you have the financial wherewithal to have household staff, most moms just don’t have the time or energy for cleaning. The iRobot Braava jet Mopping Robot is an automated hard floor cleaning system – think the Roomba of mopping. It cleans dirt and stains in odd places. It works on most hard floor surfaces, including hardwood, tile, and stone; and is clever enough to choose between wet mop mode, damp sweep mode, or dry sweep. It also connects with Google Home, so Mom can have her Google assistant schedule cleaning for her while she’s at the office or carpooling with the kids.
Philips’ Wake-Up Light. We all know that a mother’s day doesn’t end when the work day ends, so sometimes she needs an extra boost to get up in the morning. The Philips’ Wake-Up Light functions just like any other alarm clock. The difference is that 30 minutes prior to your alarm, the Wake-up Light starts to gently glow. The light gets brighter as the clock ticks down, which is supposed to simulate the natural light of the rising sun. The science behind the device claims that waking up with a gentle process makes you feel more rested and refreshed, as it doesn’t interrupt your REM cycle.
Great Bluetooth earbuds. Depending on how much you want to spend, earbuds range wildly in price – so we’ve included one luxury and one budget-friendly option. Most moms value durability above all else, because it’s easy for things to get lost in her handbag or dropped while juggling both a toddler and her phone at the same time. Noise-cancelling capabilities would also be a plus, so that on the days she telecommutes, she can still get work done by tuning out any outside distractions. For a less-expensive but great quality option, try ZNT AirFits. If you want to spoil her with some of the best earbuds on the market, try the Bang & Olufsen Play earbuds. These have all the sound quality of the audio giant’s bigger systems in a durable, long-lasting package.
