High Tech Presents For Mother's Day

Apr 24, 2008
A lot of people experience mental blocks when they think about what to buy Mom for Mother's Day. They tend to get her the same sort of things year in and year out. such as flowers or candy. Now, there's nothing wrong with flowers or candy, but has it ever dawned on you that Mom's just a tad bit sick of of getting the same old same old every year? Well, if not, consider this article a wake up call. (Not for nothing am I America's most celebrated holiday e-book author!) Yes, this year, let's try something different. How about a nice electronic present for Mom? And don't worry, man; you can trust me when it comes to gifts for Mom, because I live in my Mom's basement! Here are some great ideas.

1. Get her an iPod or other mp3 player. Everyone wants their mom to be "hip" and "with it", and if your wife or mother doesn't have her own mp3 player, such as an iPod, she's the furthest thing from being "hip" or "with it". In fact, shel going to be at the bottom of the totem pole socially. Is that the life you want for your wife or mother? Not getting invited to the "right" parties? Being an outcast? Of course not. So, if you love your Mom, and she doesn't have an mp3 player, get her one for Mother's Day. She'll be one of the beautiful people in no time!

2. High Definition TV. Do you really love your Mom? Of course, you'll say you do. But do you really, really love her? If so, then you'll do whatever it takes to make sure she doesn't get arrested for rampaging in the streets next year. What am I talking about? Here's what - early next year the new law kicks in making all TV stations switch to digital only programs. If your Mom isn't ready for the change, there's likely to be a bit of unpleasantness. Don't let that happen. For this Mother's Day, get her a new HD television or a converter box for her old one.

3. Satellite radio. Unless your Mom speaks Spanish, or enjoys teeny bopper music, or gets off on 15 straight hours of some blowhards foaming at the mouth about politics and how America is going to heck in a hand basket, there's probably not much for her to listen to when it comes to local radio. There might be one or two stations, but that's about it, and that's not much choice. But with a satellite radio receiver, she can choose from hundreds of genres and formats, most of which are commercial free. And you can get her a receiver for the car, for the home, or a sport receiver for jogging, etc.

4. Get her a nicer computer. Hey Ma, welcome to the 1990s! Ha! Just kiddin' a little there. Just about every adult in America has a computer and uses it these days, and I assume your wife or mother is no exception. But both hardware and software become superseded by better, faster, more powerful versions at a very rapid rate. If her computer is more than a couple years old, she probably needs an upgrade or a whole new system. More memory, more storage, a faster processor, etc.. And if she's got one of those old style monitors, she'd love to get one of the newer flat screen ones. They're so much nicer, and they get cheaper all the time. So what are you waiting for?

5. Get Mom a nice compact home stereo system. The advances in audio technology the past few years have been absolutely incredible. You might've grown up thinking that small meant low quality and poor sound, and back then you were right. But not anymore. Forget the huge component systems and speakers the siize of a recliner. That stuff is history. Now good audio comes in small packages. Check out names like Klipsch and Henry Kloss if you doubt it. Not only is high end audio much smaller than it used to be, it's also much less expensive. So no excuses, cheapskates!

6. Get your wife or mother one of the latest generation digital cameras. It's a brave new world of technology, and it's about time she got on the bandwagon. She just needs a helping hand from you. Nobody's mom should have to pay for film ever again! And if she already has a digital camera, it's probably fairly old, and you can get her one with a lot more memory and several more and fancier bells and whistles, without spending a lot of moolah. They're cheap, and they're everywhere, even at Wal-Mart. You know what to do. Shake it like a Polaroid picture!

7. Espresso machine. Does your Mom hang out at Starbucks or some other place that sells gourmet coffee drinks? If so, that's costing her a lot of money over a year's time. if you don't believe me, just drop in the store yourself some time. Talk about sticker shock! You'd better hope they carry smelling salts! (Of course, they'd probably charge you for those, too!) But your Mom doesn't have to spend tons of money at Starbucks to get a delicious cup of coffee. There are a wide variety of well made espresso machines, and one of them would make a lovely Mother's Day gift.
