Forget about the wallet, gloves, or PJsMom deserves a more creative gift that will bring her enjoyment long after the holidays are past. Here are some great tech gadgets that shell be thrilled to unwrap.
Slim, lightweight, and powerfulif that describes your Mom, then why not give her a camera with the same qualities? The 30x zoom lens on this Canon point-and-shoot camera will let her get up-close shots at the kids soccer games and school concerts, and wireless capability will make it easy for her to share those photos with the grandparents. Photo and video quality are both very good, and there are fun extras like a mode that applies Instagram-type filter effects. This bright-red camera should fit neatly in her purse or coat pocket, too.
Instead of giving Mom another pair of earrings, treat her to earphones that will give her countless hours of enjoyment. These provide very good sound quality, and their design helps muffle some external noise so she can actually hear her favorite tunes. They come in stylish tortoiseshell with gold accents and classic black and silver. On the cord, theres an inline microphone and remote with volume, music player, and call connect/disconnect controls. These headphones are compatible with iPhones, iPads, and iPods.
