Are they back from school? Have they taken the keys? Have they not gone out instead of doing homework?

Adolescence is a time of constant worry. Whether kids are twelve or sixteen, it’s invaluable for a mom to have an eye on the door. Peace of mind seems like a perfect Mother’s Day gift.

A smart lock on her door gives just that. A real-life activity log on her smartphone contains the history of every time the door is unlocked. But all family can enjoy it, too!

Unlocking the door with a smartwatch or smartphone virtually removes the need to keep the keys in mind. And kids not handling the keys mean no more forgetting, losing, and making extras.

Senior mom

Flowers wilt, but the garden grows forever. Change their every “I need to water the plants” to “It’s time to relax”. Smart home gadgets include a variety of smart garden solutions. If she has a garden, help her with a smart sprinkler control, so she can relax instead of handling the hose. A soil humidity sensor may send her notifications when their babies need a mist if she has a terrace. Start with a smart herb garden if she’s not a green thumb. Easy to start and care โ€“ they water the soil automatically โ€“ will offer a gift of fresh basil for her pasta every day.

Pair it with a “bouquet” of flower bulbs or herb seeds for the perfect gift set.
