Best Gifts for Mother's Day - Travel Gadgets

Mother's Day Travel Gadgets Gifts

Around the world most people know that flowers, specifically carnations, are a symbol for Mother’s Day. And you can't go wrong with a bouquet of flowers for your mom. However, while mothers across the country appreciate the gesture, one survey says there’s something they want even more (or in addition to), electronics.

Top 10 Mom Friendly Travel Gadgets:

Tablet Apple iPad Air
These devices are quite versatile, it is like giving several gifts within one. Mom can download and read multiple books, listen to music, and watch videos. She can also get together with other moms via social media twittergrambook, get work done, and make plans.

Digital Camera
It's a well known fact, moms love to take a lot of pictures to savor every single moment. With a digital camera such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 she can take as many pictures as she wants in various light conditions. And with 24x optical zoom, can get great shots from a distance.

Video Camera
The on-the-go sports mom needs an easy to hold and operate, high-powered hand cam to capture all those kids in action.

tracking device would assist with tracking daily activities, calories burned, steps taken, and sleep patterns

Kensington Proximo
Keep your friends close and your gadgets closer with this travel gadget. It alerts you when you move away from your smartphone and other valuables.

Travel Bag
A great travel bag can be different things in different situations. It can serve as a day pack on a tour, a camera bag, snack bag, backpack, and even diaper/kid bag. I am a big fan of multi-function travel gear. I have wrote about our Lowepro bag on multiple occasions (Deliberations of a Traveling Photographer (aka my wife)and What women want - travel edition). With a new baby, we now do not leave the house without our beach cooler backpack. It has large pocket for all the essentials, a small pocket for accessories, and alos had a cooler bottom portion to keep food, drinks and milk chilled during the trip.

Custom iPad Cases With Your Family Photos
Until this post I didn't know such things existed. I have seen the strange and colorful skins available for smartphones, but not something as useful and interesting as the photo decor for your laptop, tablet, and Kindle that has your family photos on it.
