Mothers Day Guide for the Cutegeek Mom!
As a reminder Mother’s day is on Sunday, May 12th and Mother’s day for Mexico is May 10th. Mother’s day isn’t just flowers anymore; mom’s enjoy the current technology as well (how else do they stay in touch with their children in a world of social media and smartphones)?
Below are some product ideas to geek up your mom or geek up your wife (on behalf of the kids) for Mother’s day.
I was going through the mall yesterday and noticed that Kate Spade had some pretty fun spring tech accessories. I went online and checked out their tech section further and found these really cute accessories for your iPad or iPhone. These two designs caught my eye but they also have several options on the Kate Spade website (and they offer free shipping).
The navy iPhone 5 Floral Picnic Wristlet retails for $70.00 and the Deborah Dot iPad Folio (cover) retails for $85.00 on their website. If your working on a budget they also have some pretty cute cases that are less expensive that are located under the “Tech Accessories” tab.
The SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 Wallet Folio also allows you take pictures while leaving it in the case. I prefer the black leather design as it is very stylish however it also comes in tan. The SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 Wallet Folio with Stand retails for the inexpensive amount of $49.99 and available on the Belkin website.
If your mom is cool with a back order Belkin has a new wristlet coming out soon. The SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 EXCLUSIVE Sartorial Wristlet that has 3 credit card compartments and comes in two spring colors (orchid and sorbet). When it comes to market it will retail for $39.99.
Simplify your Mom’s purse with the Q Card Case for her iPhone 4 or 5 which combines a case and wallet in one. It comes in 4 different colors; black, red, green or brown and has 3 credit card slots. I recently got one of the cases to check it out and it’s really sleek and great quality.
There are also cases for the iPhone 4 that come in different colors; black, white, pink, and pacific green (looks more like aqua to me). For the iPhone 4 and 5 the retail price for the Q Card Case is $39.99 and can be bought on amazon or here.
If your mom is like me I love new cases for my phone; it shows your personality and style. I struggle with cases because they tend to only last a month tops (My iPhone goes into battle every day when I put it in my purse). id America Cushi cases are a full protection kit for your smart phone while remaining fashionable.
I love the Cushi Plus Calm case I just received (perfect for the stressed out mom) and I absolutely love the Cushi plus Dot design (above); they are unique and I don’t see many people with them yet. They can be found on the id American site for $24.95 and they include a screen protector and cleaning cloth.
The BlueBuds X Premium Micro-sized Bluetooth Buds are the perfect gift for the athletic mom, business mom or city mom. The BlueBuds X are the smallest Bluetooth headphones available with 8 hours of play or call time. They come in mid-night black and white (fair warning the white color is on back order) and can be purchased for $169.95 on their website. The set includes the BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth Buds, 3 pair ear tips, 3 pair secure fit ear cushions, 2 X-Fit cord management clips, Standard Micro USB Cable, and the
Premium Protective Carry Case.
WakaWaka POWER in YELLOW for her Smartphone
Let’s face it we all run out of cell phone battery life and mom’s always need to be connected (where would we be without our moms?). The Waka Waka POWER is a pocket-sized personal smartphone power station charging unit that can take a smartphone from a depleted battery to fully charged in under 2 hours. The yellow color is perfect for summer and spring fashion plus it’s different from the normal black or white. It is compatible with any smartphone that has a USB compatible charger and retails at $79.00. I will be doing a separate product review on this once I receive it.

Now your Mom can print all those timeless moments wireless using the XPrinterServer from any of her iOS Devices to any printer that has a USB port or network printer. The set up is automatic, quick with no extra apps or software to load. Below is is a list of specs from their website and retails for $99.95.

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart- GO BIG OR GO HOME
For those who really want to go big for mother’s day may I suggest the HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart all-in-one PC with Windows 8. I personally have a last generation TouchSmart in my kitchen and when I am cooking the touch screen is a blessing to quickly find recipes. I have yet to review the new design but I say that any mom who is in the kitchen cooking would love this convenience. I also love that I can listen to music while pulling up a recipe and checking my email; that is multitasking at it’s finest! Base model starts at $1049.99 and you can get the product specs here.
