Gadgets Your Mother Needs (But Doesn’t Know It)

Skip the obvious chocolates and flowers this Mother's Day, and send something your mom will actually use — and might just give you a reprieve from constant text threads. Tired of getting asked to send photos of what you're doing? A smart frame you can automatically upload images on will do the trick. Sick of fielding questions about how to deal with a poor phone battery? A portable charger can help.
Of course, just because something is functional doesn't mean it has to be boring. That's why we've pulled presents that are as fun (think a lobster phone-carrying case) and stylish (a pretty blush organizing clutch) as they are purpose-driven. Ahead, 12 gifts that will have mom boasting about you to all her friends — even more than she already is.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
