We don’t usually associate gadgety gifts with Mother’s Day, but this year, we’ve got a quite a few tools we think your mama is going to need.
We’re pretty sure the #1 wish on your mother’s list this year is to spend more time together, so dip into our entertaining stories and make some plans. When it comes to what you’ll eat, most of the gadgets we’ve gathered will help.
For the culinarily inclined, we love a sous vide for precision cooking in a modern fashion. Non-toxic green pans are always an incredible gift (here’s why) and if she doesn’t have the InstantPot yet, now is the time. Tote whatever mom makes in these chic and genius Aplat bags that let serving dishes lie flat.
For wellness foodies, this electric spiralizer makes that spiralized noodle life a snap and this sharp little toaster actually comes with a gluten-free setting (if you’ve tried much gluten-free bread, you know). The Italian tomato press is perfect for the gardening mommy who wants things are fresh as she can get – the press even removes skins and seeds making sauces instantly lectin-free (learn more). A dehydrator is the one kitchen gadget ‘the mom with everything’ may not yet have – fun and healthy projects with kids (like this watermelon jerky) await.
On the low-tech end of the spectrum, a jade face roller or rose quartz gua sha set is sure to become the beauty lover’s new obsession. Take it up a notch with a handheld LED therapy wand or NuFace’s cult-followed facial toning device.
Beauty gadgets sound like just one more thing for mom to do? For the stressed mom, go with this gorgeous essential oil diffuser or a simple succulent wreath – no new activities required.
Whether it’s your own mother or just the beloved moms in your community you’re gifting this year, all our gifts ideas for 2018 provide small ways to improve their quality of life through cleaner living, better cooking and a little more rest and self-care.
