Mother's Day Is Coming, These 5 Gadgets Are The Perfect Gifts For Your Tech-Savvy Mom

Mother’s Day is just 2 days away, have you secured your presents already? But if you haven’t, fret not!

We have compiled a last minute list of gifts for mums out there who embrace a tech-savvy lifestyle!

A Cool Pair Of Spectacles

What would look cooler on your mom than the Spectacles by Snapchat?

These are probably the most coveted fashion accessory of 2016, drawing endless lines when it was launched. Now, it’s readily available in Singapore through online marketplaces like Lazada, Qoo10, and Shopee (where you can snag it for $20 off with the code “SPECxVP”).

Rocking one of these will let you record videos that you can not only upload to Snapchat, but also save to your phone. Now, your mom is able to discreetly record all your awkward family gatherings simply with a touch of a button on her shades.

A New iPad

It’s probably the most affordable iPad in recent times. The all-new Retina 9.7 inch iPad is stealthily creeping under the radar as one of the more underrated gadgets of 2017.

Less daunting than the iPad Pro while still retaining the bright and simple iOS user interface, the new iPad is the perfect machine for your mom to consume content on.

Now your mom can catch up on the latest Korean dramas while still having something compact enough to bring around while meeting up with her friends.

A Fujifilm Camera

Our moms would definitely remember having fond memories of taking photos using the classic Polaroid, but this is a feeling that has slowly faded away due to digital cameras.

Thanks to Fujifilm’s Instax line of cameras though, instant photography has been given a second lease on life.

Fujifilm’s latest SQ10 camera mixes the creature comforts of a digital camera, with the physical photographs of Instax. We hardly print photos in this day and age, so why not give your mom a wallet-friendly photo of yourself and your family to put in her wallet?

Shopee has the SQ10 available on pre-order, and using the code SQ10xVP will give you a $20 discount.

A (RED) iPhone

Apparently the colour of love is red, so why not show your mom how much you love her by getting her a new phone?

So if the iPad is too big, the Spectacles a tad cumbersome, and your mom isn’t into photography enough to get a standalone camera, the Product (RED) iPhone combines all three into one compact package.

The best about this phone too is that you will not only be making your own mother happy, but you will also be contributing to the Global Fund which provides HIV/AIDS testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programs with a specific focus on eliminating transmission of the viruses from moms to their newborn babies.

A Styler That Keeps Your Clothes Clean

Sure, a few Thirsty Hippo dehumidifiers at the corner of a closet may do the job of keeping you mom’s favourite coats and dresses clean and smelling nice, but why not give her something that would fit in with all the other gadgets that you are getting her?

The LG Styler may look like any other wardrobe from the outside, but it comes packing with lots of smart features. To put it simply, it’s as if you have your own dry-cleaner at home.

LG’s TrueSteam technology that the Style makes use of reduces wrinkles on clothes without the need to iron, eliminates odour, and sanitises clothes inside it at the same time!

Have A Tech-Filled Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, so if you haven’t got your mom a gift yet, why not try one of these on the list?

Just remember that loving our mothers doesn’t just take place once a year, and having special days like these should just reinforce the relationship.
