Best Tech Gifts for Mom

0Share

Shopping for mom has never been easy. After all, what do you get the woman who once put, “Some grandkids would be nice,” on her B&H Wish List? (Real subtle, Ma, thanks.) Luckily, B&H carries plenty of awesome alternatives, including great gift ideas from companies like Apple, Bose®, and DJI. Here are some of our top recommendations.

Google Home Mini

According to the Internet, there’s an old couplet that goes: “Man may work from sun to sun / But woman’s work is never done.” According to my mom, that couplet was written about her. If your equally hard-working mother could also benefit from a little help around the house, consider the Google Home Mini. Part smart speaker, part know-it-all assistant and digital au pair, the Home Mini is the perfect do-everything device for moms with too much to manage. With the Home Mini, mothers can query the Internet, stream music, manage their calendars, control smart home functions, and more—all with just the sound of their voice.

DJI OM 4

For mothers who love to take pictures or capture video with their phones, the DJI OM 4 makes a great gift. Compact, easy to use, and packed with a plethora of shooter-friendly features, the OM 4 allows moms to capture silky smooth video and frame-worthy stills. No word yet if DJI is planning on making a device that forces subjects to “smile, act like you’re happy to see me,” but if you want to gift mom the best smartphone stabilizer on the market, this is it.

Bose® QuietComfort 35™ Series II Headphones

For moms who love music (but could also use a little peace and quiet), the Bose® QuietComfort 35™ Series II headphones make a great gift. Along with top-tier noise cancellation and superior sound quality, these headphones deliver an ultra-comfortable fit that all moms deserve. Other popular features include built-in support for Google Assistant, on-device controls, and a long-lasting, 20-hour battery life.

Roku Streaming Stick+

With direct access to countless channels, movies, and TV episodes, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is a near-endless supply of entertainment. It features a discreet, hard-to-notice design that doesn’t gussy up the décor and an easy-to-use interface that champions one of mom’s favorite tenets: Don’t worry about me. I don’t want to be a burden.

Apple Watch Series 6

Of all the items on our list, the Apple Watch Series 6 might be the most appropriate. Like mom, the Watch is incredibly attentive and helpful. Its brilliant OLED display never wavers; it is always on and always watching over you. Its 24-hour health- and fitness-tracking features mean you are always on its mind; it never stops worrying about you. It is tireless. It knows everything. And, despite the fact that you sometimes take it for granted and don’t say it nearly enough, you would be lost without her. I mean it.
