Dads: You have one week until that one-day a year when your kids need to honor their mother. You know, make them breakfast, help with housework, bake her a cake and buy her a nice gift for raising them to be a sweethearts that I’m sure they are. While I’m sure your children already do the stuff around the house everyday, you should probably check out their gift selection for this year. If it needs some help, here are my top tech gift ideas.
If you need a gift for that tech-loving mama in your life, look no further. I am a gadget-happy mom and this are the things I would pick for myself (giant hint to my husband).
Kodak Pulse Frame
I want this. There is no lie. I’m a picture-taking freak, but then what? I print them for an album if I’m lucky. I’ll probably post them to Facebook for my family to glance over, but I don’t display them in my house. This fancy-little device makes it easy to display all of your favorite images. Not only can you upload them from your computer, you can send them to the picture frame’s e-mail from wherever you are at. Take a cute picture of the kiddos at the park with your phone? No problem, e-mail it to your picture frame and it will be there when you get home. The frame works on your home wireless connection, so if you don’t have one, you’ll need to get it.
Samsung Galaxy Tab
Cell phone are so yesterday. From this cute, light, small device, mom can update her Facebook status, read a book, play games, browse the web and video chat or take pictures or video. I loved this device. It was far easier to update my blog with this than my cell phone, but still small enough for me to plop it in my purse on my way out the door. The battery life was amazing. I could take it camping and read a book without taking up too much space. It does require a monthly contract through Verizon Wireless, but it’s well worth it.
Every mom needs one of these. I can record tons and tons of video, take pictures while the video is recording and it’s all great quality. In fact, most of the video I do for this site is done on my Sony Bloggie. I prefer it over the Flip. It has a battery that is recharged when plugged into a USB port on the computer. It has a battery indicator so I know when I’m low on juice. It’s small, it’s easy to use and I can use the Bloggie software or upload the video and edit it with Windows Movie Maker or other software.
Those are my suggestions for giving mom a very tech-happy holiday. Or at least this mom!
