Samsung Galaxy Note 4 / Galaxy Note Edge
As some of you may know, I love the Galaxy Note series (Check out my review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 HERE). I make great use of the big screen, multi-windows, and of course the stylus. If you’re mom is a multitasker on the go, she will definitely enjoy all the things she can do with this phone. Not to mention, there are a lot of perks that come with purchasing a Galaxy, things like access to premium apps and discounts to certain Samsung accessories.

HTC RE Camera
I recently reviewed this camera (check out the review here), and I think it’s a great accessory to have. There are times you want to be in the moment and capture it too. The HTC Re helps a great deal with easy shutter settings. Click to capture, hold down to record. You can even live stream with the Re cam. HTC is currently offering a deal for Mother’s Day. Win for both sides!
Motorola Moto 360 Android Wear Smartwatch
Give mom the gift of notifications on her wrist. One of the most anticipated smartwatches of 2014, the Moto 360 is still popular mid-2015. I reviewed it late last year and got the rose gold version this year (read review here). With customization options, from leather, to metal bands the 360 can be worn with nearly anything. It has a buit-in heart rate monitor and pairs with any Android phone. Give mom.
Sony Smartwatch 3 Android Wear Smartwatch
Sony’s third smartwatch seems to be the charm. With built-in GPS and a bright display this watch is great for mom-on-the-go (no heart-rate monitor though). The Sony Smartwatch 3 has a built-in charging port on the watch (no charging dock needed). Mom can charge on the go!

Mophie Juice Pack for Smartphones
You know how important portable battery packs and battery cases are to me. The mophie space pack is available for the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus and even the new LG G4 (on pre-order). Keep your phone powered through the day with the mophie juice pack.
Samsung Gear Circle Wireless Headphones
The Gear Circle headphones do more than you think. This is great for the mom on-the-go. These earbuds rest comfortably on your neck, and stay together with the magnetic clasp. The headphones vibrate gently when a call is coming in to alert you. To answer the call just detach the earbuds. When it comes to music, you can pause the track by clasping the earbuds together. Samsung says they last for up to 9 hours. They’re available in black, blue, white, and pink.
Harman Kardon Soho Wireless On-Ear Headphones
I reviewed the wired version of the Harman Kardon Soho headphones last year (and I recommended them as a gift as well), and I loved the light fit and powerful sound. Earlier this year at CES 2015 I got some hands-on time with the wireless version, and had to say they were pretty impressive. The HK Soho Wireless headphones are light and powerful and now wireless. These are the qualities we love. We hope to get you a full review soon. They’re available in black, brown, or white.
Microsoft Surface 3 Tablet / Laptop
As a fan of the Surface Pro 3, I recommend the Surface 3 as an affordable gift. If mom needs a tablet that can do it all while staying light on her feet, the Surface 3 is a great choice. It runs full Windows 8.1 and is compatible with many accessories, such as type covers, and a stylus.
Lifeproof Fre Phone or Tablet Case
If the mother you’re shopping for is active, or just clumsy the Lifeproof Fre case is for her. The Lifeproof Fre Case is rated IP68, meaning waterproof, dirt-proof, snow-proof, and shock-proof. The phone is protected all around (including screen protection). The case is available for many phones from an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S6, iPad Mini, iPad Air, Motorola Droid Turbo and many more. Mom can be active and get her motherly duties done without a worry, her phone will be okay!

I reviewed this camera recently and I had a blast using it. A bit more powerful than your regular point and shoot, the 21 megapixel Samsung NX Mini works great for decent pics and has a flip-up touch screen for awesome group selfies. It’s a small camera, but you can still change the lens. It’s available in pretty colors too, such as pink, or mint green. The NX Mini has gone down drastically in price.
