Shopping for Mother’s Day isn’t hard if you figure out a few things early. Namely, making breakfast one day in the year, or giving your mum a coupon for a free household chore isn’t really a gift! Personally, helping out with day-to-day stuff is just a mark of common etiquette, and as far as gifts are concerned, being thoughtful scores major points! To that very end, we decided to put on our thinking caps and create a unique list of mother’s day gifts that are genuinely thoughtful and helpful. From undying beautiful bouquets to an actual hand-massager, this list is chock-full of creative Mother’s Day Gift ideas!
‘Chipolo Card’ Tracking Device
“Perfect for helping mom find her keys, purse, or wallet”
The Chipolo Card is a ridiculously slim tracker that can slip right into your wallet, and works in tandem with Apple’s Find My network to let you track your belongings on your Apple devices. Measuring a staggering 2mm in thickness (0.08 inches for the metric naysayers), the tracker comes with a 1-year battery, IPx5 water resistance, and a loud 91dB alarm that’s enough to alert you of its presence or scare a potential pickpocket away.
LEGO Botanical Collection Flower Bouquet
“An undying bouquet for your undying love”
LEGO’s Botanical Collection marks the toy company’s latest effort in merging the joyful pastime of building blocks with the meditative work of gardening. Designed to introduce LEGO builders to the age-old craft of ikebana or Japanese flower arrangement, the LEGO Botanical Collection allows you to build rather beautifully intricate flowers out of LEGO bricks. The incredibly detailed builds come with as many as 1000 bricks per collection, with everything from petals and sepals down to even LEGO butterflies that can perch on your artificial bouquet. Great for gifting mom, even better for building together with her!
‘Vino’ Corkscrew + Bottle Opener
“A fun little bottle opener for when mom’s had a long day”
Meet Vino, an adorable bat-shaped bottle opener that adds a perfect little touch of whimsy just as you’re about to break open a bottle of wine after a really exhausting day. Its playful design comes with a head that twists to lock the corkscrew into a bottle, and wings on each side that you need to press down on to pop the bottle open. Quite like Alessi’s iconic Anna bottle opener, Vino has a fun charm to it, and will most likely only make your day better!
Embr Wave 2 Wearable Temperature Regulator
“A temperature-regulating bracelet to help deal with hot flashes and cold sweats”
Unlike most wearables that track your health and fitness, the Embr Wave 2 has a different design brief. Created to help women deal with the symptoms of menopause (mainly hot flashes), the Embr Wave 2 is a wearable temperature regulating device that helps menopausal women deal with fluctuating body temperatures. When you suddenly get a hot flash, a simple tap on your Embr device allows it to send waves of cool down your wrist, letting you feel much more comfortable and relaxed. When there’s a nip in the air or when you’re feeling chilly, the Wave 2 can become warm, instantly comforting you, so internal/external temperature fluctuations don’t ever bring you down.
Nightwatch Apple Watch Magnifying Dock
“Turn the Apple Watch into a proper, high-visibility bedside alarm clock”
The NightWatch is basically an Apple Watch charging dock with a massive dome-shaped magnifying glass element on the front that enlarges its screen. Dock your watch behind the massive lens and it makes your watch screen larger, enhancing its visibility manifold while charging it overnight. Designed to turn your smartwatch into a much more efficient bedside clock, the NightWatch does more than just increase visibility… it also enhances your watch’s audio too, amplifying it to make your alarm much more audible! A perfect addition to any bedside table!
Breo iPalm520e Electric Hand Massager
“Massages your hands and improves blood flow after an exhausting day”
Designed to be small enough to sit on a table or even on your lap, the Breo iPalm520e massages your hands for you, with 3 levels of pressure that imitate reflexology-like kneading. Using air pressure and a dot-textured inner surface, the iPalm520e helps efficiently massage your entire hands, from your palms to your fingers, and even comes with a variable heat setting to mimic the effects of a hot massage, while promoting greater blood circulation in your hands to reduce soreness and numbness.
‘Kitchen Cube’ All-in-One Measuring Cup
“A perfectly handy all-in-one kitchen measuring tool”
Designed to be your go-to for any cooking measurements, the Kitchen Cube integrates all measuring vessels into its singular, cube-shaped body. With 19+ measuring units incorporated into its 6-sided shape, the Kitchen Cube can be used to measure anything from teaspoons and tablespoons to even cups, working with both wet and dry ingredients alike. The cube comes with both metric and US measuring units molded into its unique design, allowing you to even measure out your ingredients in milliliters if the recipe calls for it!
Petlibro Granary Automatic Pet Feeder
“Because pet mamas are mamas too!”
Although it’s named the Granary, this automatic pet feeder from Petlibro stores everything except grains! Designed to hold and dispense dry food for either cats or dogs, the Petlibro Granary comes in 2 volumes – a 3-liter and a 5-liter version, and can store up to 50 portions of dry food in its upper container. You can then schedule and set feeding times, so the Granary automatically dispenses the food into your pet’s feeding tray, irrespective of whether you’re home or not. Moreover, the Granary even allows you to record 10-second audio clips for your furry friend, giving them comfort while you’re not around!
