Mother’s Day for the Techie

As much as I love a nice necklace or a great looking outfit, those aren’t the things I usually wish for on Mother’s Day. As a lover of all things geeky and shiny, I would like to present the GeekMom Mother’s Day Gift Guide for the tech oriented mom:

BiKN Device
This device turns mom’s iPhone into a personal tracking device. After setting up the app and smart tags to the people or things she doesn’t want to lose, the BiKN will alert her if they get too far away.

Logitech Mouse and Keyboard set
The new Logitech Global Graffiti Collection is perfect for the stylish mom. Whether she works at an office or in the home, the Global Graffiti Collection is perfect for the mom with a sense of style. I love it because it adds a little more color to my desk than my work place’s generic black mouse and keyboard.

iTunes Gift Cards
Gift cards might seem impersonal, but as I have pointed out to my own family, it’s what I want! Since I buy all my music and movies on iTunes, it makes me really happy to get gift cards so that I can go buy them. It also feels like my family is telling me, “Today, Mom, you can watch whatever you want, on us.”

Another stylish and economical gift for mom is the Nest Thermostat. Designed by the same guys who helped bring the iPod to life, the Nest is as neat to look at as it is to operate.

Fitbit Ultra Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker
Ever wondered just how much mom moves in a day? Well, then hook her up with a Fitbit Ultra. Fibit tracks everything from how many steps she takes to how well she is sleeping at night.  I think you will be surprised by just how much she does when your not around.

Kindle Fire with the Verso Prologue Cover for Kindle and Kindle Touch
Moms need some downtime to relax and unwind. So, why not give mom the gift of escape, with an Kindle Fire and a cute case to go with it. If you know what she likes to read, take it one step further and go ahead and load it up some of her favorites. You could even give her a coupon for some quality alone time with her new device.

Every mom needs a smart phone to keep up with everything going on in a day. It would also be nice if she got a few calls just to say “Hi” during the day (hint hint).

For the dancer in us all, check out ABBA You Can Dance for the Nintendo Wii system. This is a great way to help get mom, as well as the rest of the family, dancing to the classic tunes of ABBA.

 If your mom is more of an XBox person than a Wii person, check out Just Dance 3 for the XBox 360. It’s also a great way to spend some quality time with mom — and I am sure she will appreciate that more than the gift itself.

Sony Alpha NEX NEX3A/B Digital Camera with Interchangeable Lens (Black)
To capture all those special moments, get Mom the Sony Alpha NEX Digital Camera.  With the quality of a DSLR in about half the size and weight, it’s the smallest interchangeable lens camera available. To make it extra special, go ahead and get it ready for Mom and take a picture of yourself for her. Don’t forget to smile.
