Sometimes mom drops hints, and most of the time she will just assume you know her.  And after many, many years, you start running out of ideas for possible gifts to fill her with joy.  Here are a few ideas for the upcoming Mother’s Day:

Smartphone – iPhone 6 or 6 Plus

iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

As someone who consistently finds themselves teaching their parents how to use a smart phone, the iPhone probably leads the category in ease of use.  It only has 1 button that will always take you home and its usability/learning curve are relatively short compared to Android.  Will it be a perfect match?  Not always but I will say that optimization and its accessory list make it an easy gift to get your mother.

Alternative (Android) – Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge

Finally, Samsung has created something that’s worth gifting!  We have the current king (or queen) of all Android phones (even if people think it looks like an iPhone).  You have the latest and greatest in specs and the removal of most of Samsung’s much hated bloat ware, you have an amazing option to go to on the Android front of things.  Pair that with one of the best smartphone cameras money can buy and I’m sure mothers everywhere will be thanking you.
