While shopping at Best Buy for the best Mother’s Day gifts, remember that your mom is a multifaceted amazing person. Too often we get stymied by a narrow perspective and limit our gifting options to things that are, well, obvious. Jewelry, for example. Yes you can find that at Best Buy and your mom would love it and it might express how lovely your mom is. But this article and this contest are not about jewelry. I found a selection of great gifts that create a meaningful expression of how much moms are appreciated for all that they do. Read the article for gift inspiration, then enter the contest for a chance to win.
Great tech so mom stays connected to family and to the world
All moms need a great internet connection. My mom turned 80 this year and she is online as much as I am: text and messaging her sister across the country, sharing photos, and commenting on the ones that my siblings and I post on Facebook. Best Buy has tons of amazing tech to help mom stay connected.
In this contest we are giving away two prizes for two different types of connections. First up is the Aura Carver Digital Frame which enables mom to see a steady stream of photos of the people who matter most to her. Unlike a standard picture frame, this digital frame presents photos from your photo library: you never know who will be shown next making it a great way to relive memories throughout the day.
The next prize is a new mesh router that distribute the internet throughout her home. With a Google Wi-Fi router 3 pack, she’ll be able to connect up to 200 devices and access the internet as easily upstairs as downstairs. Read the review of this system on the blog to learn more about its great features that will surely help mom stay connected to the world.
Fitness and entertainment are part of every moms day
The range of gift options to keep mom entertained and to keep her fit has never been more extensive. The age-old stereotype of a mom who only cooks and cleans and cares for her family long-ago been shattered. Most moms that I know stay fit through a wide range of activities and Best Buy has health and fitness gifts for all of them. Similarly, you’ll find gifts for whatever form of entertainment they love: movies, music, gaming, and more.
This next set of prizes reflects this diversity. The newest Fitbit available, the Fitbit Charge 5 is loaded with fitness tracking and health monitoring features so mom can more easily set goals, and understand how her body is responding throughout the day. She’ll be tracking her steps, monitoring her heart rate, and a lot more!
This next prize might seem unusual for some people, but I know many moms will love it. The Logitech Superlight Pro gaming mouse will not only make a mom who enjoys PC Gaming very happy, but it will also raise her productivity for all computer tasks. It’s wireless, very light, and optimized for precise movements. Anyone who has a gaming mouse, and this is one of the best, can never go back to using a regular mouse.
Great gifts so you can prepare a great meal for your mom
No Mother’s Day gift selection would be complete without discussing great products for the home and kitchen. I don’t know any mom who doesn’t cook at times. I too love cooking and prepare at least 50% of the meals in our home. So consider these two gifts a challenge: if you give a gift for the home, like these Cuisinart items below, include a promise to use them just as much as your mom!
These two prizes are awesome Cuisinart products that we recently reviewed on the blog and now they have returned so we can give them away in a contest. The first is an amazing 12 piece Everlasting Cookware Set. This premium set of stainless steel sauce pans and skillets will be just what mom needs to prepare amazing meals on those days when you don’t take over the kitchen and use them yourself!
The second prize in this section is an 11 piece Cuisinart knife block set. This would be an amazing addition to her kitchen with a range of stainless steel blade types and size, all with a soft, easy to hold handle, and a set of kitchen shears (something I am constantly using my my kitchen!). Every kitchen deserves a great set of knives like these from Cuisinart.
Every mom deserves something from all of the product categories mentioned above: entertainment, fitness, home essentials, and connectivity. And if you enter this contest, you might win one for your mom.
