Mother’s Day: 5 high-tech gift ideas

Mother’s Day is coming up and you’re having a little trouble finding a gift idea? What if you turned to a high-tech gift this year?

We have prepared you a selection of 5 products that could make your mom happy For Mother’s Day. There is something for all tastes, all ages and all budgets.

A smartphone: iPhone 12 Mauve or Honor Magic5 Pro

We grant you, offering a smartphone for Mother’s Day represents a nice budget. Nevertheless, there is something for all tastes and all budgets. And as long as to please, you might as well orient yourself towards the most attractive models of the moment.

Why not opt ​​for a Purple iPhone 12 just launched by Apple? Apple’s latest smartphone stands out with its all-new design, top-flight performance and exceptional photo quality. All in an interface that is still just as intuitive. It is also available in a mini versionalso available in purple, for fans of the genre.

Another special mention: the Honor Magic5 Pro. The smartphone offers particularly high-end services for a price that is becoming more attractive – note here that we are not talking about a “cheap” smartphone but rather a real premium Android smartphone.

It combines a very bright 120Hz AMOLED display, a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, super-fast LPDDR5X RAM, and a huge 5100mAh battery. On the photo and video part, we only have very high quality 50 Mp sensors, accompanied by a depth sensor like on the iPhone Pro. And unlike the latter, it can film in 8K.

Finally, if you really want to offer a smartphone for Mother’s Day but your budget is more limited. We recommend that you turn to models like the iPhone SE, the Galaxy A52 5G or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro.

A connected watch: Apple Watch SE or Galaxy Watch Active 2 or OPPO Watch

A watch is always a nice Mother’s Day gift. What if this year you opt for a connected model? If the Apple Watch Series 6 is undoubtedly the best watch of the moment, we still recommend its sister, the Apple Watch SE.

More affordable, it corresponds more to a Mother’s Day gift, even if, again, it already represents a nice budget. Apple’s connected watch is currently the most complete on the market, both in terms of the accuracy of its analyzes and the multitude of features available.

The SE version includes all the essentials of the Series 6 and will therefore perfectly meet the expectations of an active and/or sporty mum. Provided she is an iPhone user.

If not, other watches are just as appealing. At Samsung, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 has more than one argument to make. Elegant, it is distinguished from the Apple Watch by its round and not square dial. Samsung offers a slew of bracelets to meet everyone’s desires.

Like the Apple watch, it is very precise and complete. And above all, it is much cheaper than the headed watch.

We also recommend the OPPO Watch, a real competitor to the Apple Watch in the Android universe. Its slick design and the integration of WearOS even make it the best alternative to the Pommée timepiece.

Finally, the OnePlus Watch and the Xiaomi Watch are interesting and more affordable alternatives. The Fitbit Versa 2 is also a very popular model women, especially the purple model with a golden dial. You are therefore spoiled for choice.

Wireless headphones: Galaxy Buds Pro

If your mom has an iPhone, the AirPods Pro wireless headphones are the best audio gear we can recommend for Mother’s Day (headphones are for Christmas).

If she’s using another smartphone, then we recommend the Galaxy Buds Pro, Samsung’s latest true wireless headphones. Why them rather than the others?

Not for their sound quality which does not outclass competitors. Not for their noise reduction either, good but not exceptional either. But rather for their design both discreet and terribly sexy (especially in purple).

While rounded, the Galaxy Buds Pro do not take up the “stem” design of most true wireless headphones. Their glossy coating and extremely compact housing also make them a fashion accessory. Perfect for combining business with pleasure.

A connected speaker: Amazon Echo Dot

Let’s stay in the world of audio and look at the phenomenon of connected speakers. There is something for all tastes and all budgets. So we have concocted a very complete guide on this subject.

That’s all well and good, but which model to choose for Mother’s Day? According to U.S, the Amazon Echo Dot is the best value for money for an affordable, useful and sexy gift.

Sold for just 59 euros, it will discreetly fit into any furniture thanks to its spherical canvas design. Its sound quality is very decent and the voice recognition (Alexa) extremely effective.

If you are not necessarily attracted to the Amazon ecosystem, you can also turn to the Nest mini (49€), the compact speaker from Google or the HomePod mini (99€) for compatibility with Apple products.

Finally, larger speaker models with premium sound quality (Bose, Harman Kardon, Sonos) or with a screen (Google Nest Hub) are also available. We then move on to much higher prices.

An e-reader: Kindle Paperwhite

Is your mum more of a bookworm? Have you ever thought of giving him an e-reader? Its advantage, you probably know, is to be able to carry with you (on vacation, in transport) a library of thousands of books in a very small format.

In 2023, the e-reader market is well supplied. According to U.S, the Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon remains a reference model. It perfectly combines reading comfort (with its beautiful 6-inch edge-to-edge screen) and compact format, all for just over 100 euros.

If your budget is bigger, the Kindle Scribe is Amazon’s most premium model. The screen is bigger and brighter. Above all, it is compatible with a stylus that allows you to take notes on it, like on a real notepad.

If, on the contrary, you have a limited budget, the “classic” Kindle is an excellent compromise. Smaller than the Paperwhite, it costs around 70 euros and is a good start to the reading experience on an e-reader.

So much for our 5 high-tech gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Of course, this is only a small selection. If you haven’t found what you’re looking for, you can consult our more complete buying guides.
