Many moms will tell you it’s the thought that counts, and they’re right. But you know you want to get her something special just the same.
1. For the Mom Who Needs a Little R&R
You know who could use a good massage? Mom. There’s almost nothing better than a good day at the spa and strong hands to help massage out a year’s worth of stress and work. Take a look around your local spas and resorts to find a good deal for mom this year.
2. For the Mom Who Likes to Keep an Eye on Things
Being a mom is a stressful job so what better way to give mom a break and some peace of mind than with D-Link’s Full HD Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8300LH). She can place the cameras where she needs it and check on things from anywhere. Plus, it has two-way audio and smart home automation. So Mom can stay where she is and still be able to tap a button and tell you she loves you from anywhere. (You could—and should—do the same.)
3. For the Mom Who Wants Some Family Time
A mom loves nothing more than those nights where all the family gathers around and just has a quiet movie night together. With Covr Dual-Band Mesh Wi-Fi (Covr-1203), she can watch a movie with you anywhere in the house—and maybe even outside on the porch.
4. For the Mom Who Works from Home
If your mom is the type of person who works from home and is always jumping on video conference calls to close out deals, she needs a direct, reliable connection. D-Link’s Powerline AV2000 Gigabit Passthrough Starter Kit (DHP-P701AV) takes care of business. It creates a direct connection from your router to your mom’s office using your home’s electrical wires so she can close that next deal or submit that project without worry.
5. For the Mom Who Loves Gifts from the Heart
Sure, you could make a personalized calendar, or create a touching photo video from your time the past year, or knit her a warm home-made scarf. But you could also get her custom-made socks! You know how much your mom loves you. Imagine how much more she would love you if you were keeping her feet warm?
You could also get matching pairs for Dad if you want.
