Cards and flowers on Mother's Day are so old-fashioned. Today's mothers are much more likely to want a tech gadget, like a tablet small enough to carry around in a pocketbook. Or, since many of our moms already have an iPhone, Android device or some form of tablet, they may need handy accessories for their mobile devices—perhaps a case to help keep their new toys protected from the wear and tear of everyday life. More than anything, Mother's Day gives us all the opportunity to tell our moms how much we appreciate, respect and admire them, and while a phone call, home-cooked meal or night out on the town are all lovely gifts, if your particular mom is a technology nerd at heart, then she'll also appreciate a clever gadget, gizmo or geek culture reference to add to the collection—just make sure you're getting something for her, and not the latest device that YOU just have to have, OK? With an ever-expanding universe of consumer technology available, and with many devices that are becoming more affordable than ever, we're sure that this list will help you find something that will please your mom—after all, moms really do deserve the best.
