Mothers -- they carry us in their womb for 9 months, in their arms for the first few years of our lives, and in their hearts forever. God has certainly blessed us with the presence of mothers in our lives, and mom can always be relied upon to soothe a broken heart. How about showing her the appreciation that she deserves this Mother’s Day through a gift which will certainly last far longer than a bouquet of roses? Check out Gospel Herald’s Mother’s Day 2017 Gift Guide and you might just see mom exclaim with joy, saying, “This is what I have been looking for all this while!” without sounding like an infomercial. With May 14 looming on the horizon, what are some of the items that mom would love to have, but never really mentioned it simply because she does not want to burden you?
Amazon Echo Show
Good things come to those who wait, so for those who feel that mom needs a virtual assistant to make her life easier, then the recently announced Amazon Echo Show would fit the bill perfectly. With the Amazon Echo Show, mom is able to control her smart home as well as other appliances and apps using her favorite tool: her voice. How many times have you heard mom scream at you to pick up after yourself when you were little? Now that she has mellowed down a whole lot with children having left the nest, nagging at dad is not a good idea at all. So why not be friends with the Alexa-powered Amazon Echo Show? It is not set yet to arrive, but showing her a pre-order ticket would give her something to look forward to. Alternatively, she might be happy enough to settle for the older generation Amazon Echo that is going for a mere $150.
Plantronics BackBeat FIT Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Growing old does not mean ending up with a less than active lifestyle. Why not help mom get into the groove of things, even through a simple exercise like taking a really, really long walk? This is what the $100 Plantronics BackBeat FIT Wireless Bluetooth Headphones is able to offer, letting mom enjoy her favorite old school songs as she takes a stroll. Even better yet, if she loves to run, you can always kit her with an activity tracker, and what better way to do so than with a reliable name in the form of the $150 Fitbit Blaze? Of course, if you are pinching pennies at the moment due to the economic climate, there is always the $130 Fitbit Charge 2 device which you can always opt for.
The latest smartphone
Perhaps it is time for mom to ditch her old school handset that is right now tottering along and experiencing frequent reboots out of nowhere. How about bringing her smartphone experience to a whole new level with a brand new flagship, such as the iPhone 7 Plus or the Samsung Galaxy S8? Either way, she is guaranteed to enjoy a premium smartphone user experience, and while doing so you would also do her a favor by providing her with an adequate smartphone protective case. For such cases, Otterbox is able to offer a range of items that would surely find favor with mom's sense of aesthetic beauty.
Make memories with the Polaroid Snap
Life is all about memories, so why not ensure that mom lives out the rest of her years with good memories that are printed out as opposed to be stashed on a hard drive somewhere? The Polaroid Snap is the perfect gift, since it comes with a small-format instant printer while functioning as a digital camera. It works in the same manner as the Polaroid instant cameras she grew up with, while being able to print those photos on the spot will most likely thrill her to bits.
