May the 8th is fast approaching, so we are certain that you are looking for a few Mothers Day gift ideas? There are two things that you should consider, the gift of time and technology. More often than not your mother is a little out of touch with all the latest tech, but why not sit down and spend some time with her to get her up to speed?
This idea works both ways, your mother misses you and you miss her, this will be a way for the both of you to spend some quality time together. An ideal gift for the person who gave you life is a smartphone, what better way to keep in touch? You can show your mother how the device works and maybe even sign her up to Facebook.
This will be like the gift that keeps giving, as you will be able to share photos of some of the things that you get up to — within reason of course. This is perfect if mother and child live too far away from each other to visit once or twice a week. If she is happy with her phone then why not a laptop or tablet device instead? You can still keep in touch with these devices, but she can also have her own fun as well.
If you do not wish your mother to have access to your Facebook, then maybe you could sign her up to Twitter, and keep in touch that way. More often than not you find it hard to hold a long conversation with your mum, so what better way to let her know that all is fine than a tweet?
One year my brother got my mother a laptop, and now she is on it everyday, keeping in touch with people on Facebook; but mostly enjoying the games that come on The Social Network. Remember, if money is tight, then there is still no excuse, as we have just explained above.
What is the perfect gift for your mother?
