Gift ideas for Mothers Day 2013



So it's that time of year again -- buying a gift for your lover or mother, and the reality it is, most techies will need help finding the right gift that reflects who they are and the person they are buying for.

Hoping to at least spur some ideas for you, here is a break down of some of the items I have noticed my female friends have bought themselves this year. Generally, most of these gifts are going to set you back a couple hundred dollars, or more, but any mother should be well worth that.

Vitamix 5200 - an uber kitcher blender that can turn pretty much anything into an ultra fine smoothie.

Nike FuelBand - a daily calorie counter and activity monitor. While pedometers exist, this wristband is quite stylish and has a built in accelerometer that allows you to analyze your movements though out the day.

Nest Self-learning 2nd Gen Thermostat - Honeywell has one, too

Keurig Coffee Maker - check Amazon.com for a list of good substitutes

iPad Mini - If they don't already have a tablet, this is one of the current favorites.

Bose QuietComfort 15 - noise-cancelling headphones, while better headphones exist, sometimes the trendy items have the most appeal.

If all else fails, Amazon.com has a list of great gift ideas. Quite a few nice gifts for $20 even, such as a USB charging in-wall receptacle.

If you have your own great idea not mentioned here though, please add it to the comments! We'd all love to hear it.

Best of luck!
