Mother’s Day is around the corner! That one day each year when we go above and beyond to show the moms in our lives how much we love and appreciate all that they do. Let’s face it, moms are basically the superheroes of our world. As much as we don’t want to admit it sometimes, they do more for their families than we can even fathom. While most of us complain about our nine-to-five work day, Mom’s work hours start when she opens her eyes in the morning and don’t end until she shuts them at night.
The responsibilities a mother has are endless:
- Childcare Provider (which has hundreds of duties on its own)
- Career Juggler
- House Cleaner
- Grocery Shopper
- Money Manager
- Play-Date Coordinator
- Event Planner
You get the idea…
So, other than ordering her a beautiful arrangement of flowers, why don’t you get her something new and impressive? We asked moms what they would be excited to receive on Mother’s Day. Check out our list of the top six tech gifts she desires.

4. Owlet Baby Monitor ($299, available online and in select retailers)
A new mom has no idea what to expect after she has her baby. There are countless news stories and research about what could go wrong. So many do’s and dont’s for how the baby sleeps. Most new moms are constantly worrying if the baby is alright and still breathing while asleep. The Owlet is a little sock that goes on your baby’s foot and monitors his or her heart rate and oxygen levels. The information gets sent straight to your phone. The website claims that 83% of users have reported better sleep since using the Smart Sock. Why not gift the new mom in your life with the sleep she deserves? A bonus would be offering to watch the baby while she takes a nap!
