Follow the famous motto ''stay calm and carry on....and buy her a nice gadget''! Ok, so the last part is my own. Forget flowers, chocolates and the same old boring standard presents.

If your mom is like mine, she loves to cuddle up with a good book and sip a cup of tea. Why buy a paper-back book for her when she can have an unlimited amount right on this device? This E-Reader from Amazon ($119) is certainly the best gift. Thanks to its higher percentage of pixels and sharp texts, it will offer reads that are easy-on-the-eyes. She eventually won't be able to live without. Not only that, she will be able to lose herself in the 8 hours of battery life and have a choice of 1100 books.
Is your mom a music lover? Then she should probably be presented with the gift of sound. A good option would be purchasing the Divoom Bluetune Pop ($39.99), which is a compact and light-weight speaker for on the go. This funky little toy is a version of the iTour POP Bluetooth speaker that was launched late last year. It offers more speed and less power consumption.
