A Tech Gift Guide To An Amazing Mother’s Day

I’ve been thinking a lot of late on ways to make moms feel appreciated. I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because I AM a mom now, and there certainly are days that I DON’T feel appreciated even a little bit. I like to make others feel special, and I know that moms are a grouping of people who deserve to feel special, if there ever was a grouping of people who deserved to feel special! Can I get an “amen”?!

So this post and gift guide may be a little early, in the grand scheme of things, but really: how early is too early to start thinking about the perfect gift for your mom for Mother’s Day?

After all, mom is the woman who brought you into this world, and if you give a bad present on Mother’s Day, she’s the woman who can take you out of it. (Not that she actually WOULD, but she could!) So, why not plan to get her something she actually wants, so she can praise you like the perfect child that you are. (Is that how it would play out in your family? Yeah, probably not in mine, either! We can dream, though, right?! HA!)

A Tech Gift Guide To An Amazing Mother's Day #technology #gifts #mothersday Click To Tweet

If you aren’t sure what gadgets would best suit Mom, let this gift guide help you find something guaranteed to impress. From kitchen tools to stylish chargers, here are some of the best tech-inspired Mother’s Day gifts!

Anova Sous Vide

anova-sous

Your mom loves to cook, and her primary job when everyone’s home is to keep everyone fed. It’s not a stereotype if it’s true! It’s also a great hack to Mother’s Day. When Mom’s a foodie, focus on her love for the kitchen and get her a cool tech tool this year like the Anova Sous Vide. Sous Vide — French for under vacuum —involves putting something in a plastic pouch before submerging it into boiling water. It’s a popular cooking technique that helps create flavorful and juicy dishes.

Find the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift – at Uncommon Goods!

A couple years back, I was tired of purchasing the same ol’ type of gifts for friends and family. It all seemed so…routine! And BORING. And I felt like I wasn’t appreciating those I loved very well at all when it came to “gift giving”.

So I started looking for something a little different. Something unique. I wanted to find one spot I could go to see products that were fresh and new and not at all “common”. 

It was then that I discovered UncommonGoods.

Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment, AND without harm to animals or people. All of the company operations are run out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage. Their mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand! Most of the jewelry products, home décor and tabletop items carried are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of the entire collection incorporates recycled and/or up-cycled materials. At the core of the company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is the responsibility of UncommonGoods to use their business to impact the world in a positive way.

And let me just say right here how user-friendly their website is! I love that you can even search by recipient – men, women, babies, or even wives and husbands!

It didn’t take long for me to realize that I loved what the company stood for, but what about these products?

Of course, anyone who has been reading this blog for any length of time knows that I’m always on the hunt for neat home goods that serve a purpose, and boy, have I found some!

Not only have we increased our grand prize count to FOUR huge prize bundles, we’ve got some killer co-hosts, a link up for all things mama and summer-centric, and some really awesome sponsors.
