Mami Talks: 5 Tech Savvy Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10, and the question of what to get Mom (and other special mothers) always arises. As a blogger and technology review columnist, I’d like to share a few of the following tech related gift ideas for the special ladies in your life (And don't forget, no matter what you give your Mom, tell her how much you care and appreciate her for all she does every day!):

1. 1

Want to pamper your mother when it is convenient for her and without even leaving the home?  She can relax with a portable palm-sized robot called WheeMe™.  This little gadget travels over the body with four small wheels and a rotor finger to relax and calm the senses. WheeMe™ currently retails for $69.99 on

If she loves to garden, VegiBee™ Garden Pollinators can help increase the yield at harvest time by up to 30%.  It creates a vibration like that of bee’s wings.  This vibration causes the plant to drop pollen.  Then you can manually collect and spread the pollen among your plants. VegiBee™ comes in a 5 speed rechargeable unit for $49.99 or express battery powered unit for $29.99.
