Mother's day is quickly approaching. Here are some cool last minute gifts you can get mom!

I know many of my readers are scrambling around to get the best mother’s day gift. You’ve been hitting with up on Twitter and instagram. What have you see? What can I pick up nearby? I got the answer, something for all types of moms out there. You can find (all or most of) these at your local electronics store, or on Amazon.com

 Samsung Galaxy S7 Stock - Cruz

Samsung Galaxy S7


This mother’s day, promise mom that you will do better to keep contact with her. Show her you mean it, by getting her a new phone. It’s the most talked about phone of 2016. I mean how is it not? You have a beautiful crisp screen, a camera that takes great pics whether you’re a professional or an amateur.

Are you part of the selfie gang? The front facing camera takes great pics and Hasan option for wide-angle selfie to fit everyone. All these features and the Galaxy S7 doesn’t skimp on the build. The metal build is available in 3 colors. The curve on the back keeps a great grip on the phone. But in the case you do drop it in water, the S7 won’t be hurt, it’s water resistant. No worries here!

Is the mother you’re shopping for trying to get back into fitness, or enjoy running outdoors. There are a couple of items you can get her.

TomTom Spark Cardio + Music Watch

There are a variety of TomTom watches to  choose from, but my pick would be the Spark Cardio + Music watch. Why? It offers what every runner needs to get through a good run. With the Spark Cardio+ Music you get 24/7 tracking, with the built-in heart rate monitor. The water-resistant watch allows you to train in all weather conditions.
You don’t have to lug your smartphone around, since the Spark Cardio + Music has 4Gb storage that allows you to store up to 500 songs. A workout playlist keeps you motivated.

Surprise her on Mother’s day with a new vanity mirror. iHome has taken the vanity mirror to the next step with the Vanity Mirror Speaker. The Vanity Mirror Speaker brings tech to the vanity table.  The mirror has a USB charging port, bluetooth capabilities, and even a speakerphone so you can be hands-free while applying the makeup.
