Tech Gifts for Mom

Everybody’s got a mother, and yours deserves the very best. That’s why we’ve whipped up this handpicked list of tech gifts for Mother’s Day — because, let’s be real, nobody wants another crayon drawing to put on the fridge.


RainMachine Forecast Sprinkler

Shopping for a mom with two green thumbs? This awesome Wi-Fi enabled irrigation controller will sync up to your sprinkler system and automatically adjust water levels based on weather forecasts. Plus, it works with Alexa!

PixStar Digital Photo Frame

What better gift for Mom than another way to get your face on the mantle? With PixStar's 10.4-inch Wi-Fi enabled photo frame, you can email images directly into the slideshow. If Mom's taking the pictures, though, be wary of wild thumbs.

Deik Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Smaller, quieter, and less obtrusive than a typical vacuum cleaner, Deik's little black bot offers all the functionality of a spendier Roomba or Dyson for a lot less dough. Its top-notch suction power can even handle gobs of pet hair.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

The Paperwhite was on our list last year, but you know what they say about things that ain't broke. Eight weeks of battery life, impressive contrast, and a huge library of titles make this a no-brainer for the book-loving mom in your life.

Drop Scale

Some people can eyeball measurements while baking and everything turns out fine. For the rest of us, the Drop Scale can help by connecting directly to the Drop Recipe App, which boasts hundreds of popular recipes for easy access.

Morse Code Necklace

Does your mom have a bad habit of getting hopelessly lost at sea? If so, look no further than custom Morse code jewelry, designed to communicate your love in little, gold (or rose gold, or silver) dashes and dots.


Ever wondered what it would be like to pick Martin Scorsese's brain? With Masterclass, Mom can take online classes taught by the best of the best, like Steve Martin (comedy) and Hans Zimmer (film scoring). Just watch out for Gordon Ramsay.


Help your mother be her best self by getting her a BirchBox subscription! She'll get monthly boxes full of goodies like eyeliner, skin lotion, and hair product. She'll even get email surveys to fill out, further personalizing her gifts.


There's nothing to brighten up Mom's day like receiving a fresh bouquet of flowers. Bouqs is the best of the best in the flowers-on-demand department, offering same-day delivery and even letting you filter by where the flowers were grown.

Tile Style

If you've got a forgetful mama, keeping organized might be a daily stressor. With the Tile Style, a snazzy little fob that goes on your keys, you can help her eliminate that anxiety. Tiles can quickly locate your keys from your phone and vice versa.

Instant Pot Ultra Pressure Cooker

It's 2018, and the stay-at-home mom is out of style! For working mothers, the Instant Pot pressure cooker means no more rushed dinners and no more settling for takeout. Stews, sautees, roasts, cakes... You name it, this cooks it.

Wine2Go Foldable Wine Bottle

What could be better than relaxing at home with a bottle of wine? Taking that wine with you! With the, flexible, foldable, BPA-free Wine2Go, you can keep that buzz going, no matter how hostile the environment. Looking at you, Little League.

Blue Bottle Coffee Service

Espresso-loving martiarch? Blue Bottle is the subscription service mom's bean waiting for her whole life. If the company's commitment to sustainable farming isn't grounds enough to switch over, maybe its rotating selection of blends is.

Cat Mom Mug

Not everybody has human children! For all the feline-friendly women (read: crazy cat ladies) in your life, send a sweet message with this mug. Accented in gold, it's almost enough to make her forget about Fluffy's "accident" on the stairs.

Wacaco Portable Espresso Maker

No judgment here: We all need our caffeine fix, and there's not always time to brew up a cuppa at the homestead. Wacaco's tiny portable espresso machine is a pocket-sized solution that can make you a shot (crema and all) anywhere.
