1. Smart Mirror by Makr Mirror
The Smart Mirror by Makr Mirror with an edge-to-edge 1080p HD display is a standout among gadget birthday gifts for mom. This truly innovative gadget is the next step in luxury home design. (According to me. But, truly, how far off could it be?)
This 21.5″ display, tucked inside a gray aluminum frame, is perfect for a makeup mirror or last looks before running out the door. Extremely customizable, the smart mirror reflects while delivering personalized, curated messages on the display.
Although incorporated with open source software (meaning it’s programmable if you understand the language) the Makr mirror is pre-programmed with hundreds of modules for on-screen display including weather, email, and traffic etc. Additionally, the makers are keen to point out the initial Wi-Fi setup is easy.
Finally, the included camera and USB microphone mean more adventurous owners can program voice and facial recognition extensions.
2. Blue Doorbell Camera by ADT
Among the many gadget birthday gifts available for an overworked, and stressed mom, a doorbell camera stands out because it offers something the others lack: security. Really show Mom you love her by giving her the latest gadgetry to keep herself, her home, and her loved ones safe.
Easy to set up and install, the Blue Doorbell Camera features live-streaming HD video, 2-way talking, night vision, facial recognition, and motion detection among other things. Use the app to customize alerts or adopt the professional monitoring available via ADT. It’s also compatible with Alexa for smart home capability.
Despite the many functions available on the Blue doorbell camera, the final feature is the cherry on top: no contract required. Although able to work within an existing LifeShield system, there are no extra fees, nor does ADT remove functionality if the user chooses not to participate.
3. Luxtude myColors Portable Charger
This lipstick-sized, lightweight portable charger may be the perfect gadget birthday gift for Mom. A multi-tasking Mom has too many things to worry about to stress about her cell phone charging.

Going a step further, the fashionista Mom won’t have to sacrifice style with this colorful combo. Pull out the pastel swirl charger at the soccer game and use the more executive white in the office. If the pastel is still too much for the Mom in your life, a two-pack with black and white chargers is available.

6. Circular Matrix Wireless Charging UV Light Sanitizer Box
These days you can’t be too careful when it comes to germs. This UV Phone Sanitizer and Charger is one of the ultimate gadget birthday gifts for hypervigilant and/or germaphobic moms.
The UV Sanitizer includes nine UV LEDs that disinfect enclosed items. Additionally, sanitization is not restricted to phones or electronics. You can disinfect anything that fits inside! Different levels of disinfection will work on the enclosed items for either one or five minutes. The colored band around the device displays the progress of the cleaning.
The lid of the UV Sanitizer acts as a wireless charging station compatible with any Qi-enabled device. However, it is important to note that items within the sanitizer are not able to use the wireless charger on top. In other words, while being sanitized items will not be charging. Regardless, gadget-freaks and protective moms will love the high-tech approach to cleanliness.
7. Entrige Mini Bag Sealer (Budget Winner)
It can’t be said too many times: gadgets don’t have to be fancy or expensive. Some of the most brilliant gadgets perform a simple function that quietly improves our lives. Using that logic, the Entrige Mini Bag Sealer is one of the most economical and practical gadget birthday gifts for mom.
The Mini Bag Sealer is a 2-in-1 cutter and sealer. The cutting function opens bags without the use of scissors or sharp objects while the sealing function creates an airtight seal on most ordinary kitchen bags to keep food fresh. No cords, either! The Mini Bag Sealer uses two AA batteries, so be sure to pick those up when purchasing. It even comes with a hook to keep it out of the way, but still on hand.
Look Outside the Box for Gadget Gifts for Mom
Gadgets make our lives better. They tick, beep, connect, and deliver their way into our lives until they become essential. One of the most interesting things about gadgets is that there are no boundaries to them. Do you want to print photos from your phone using nothing more than light? There’s a gadget for that. Do you want to cook S’mores on your countertop? There’s a gadget for that.
I urge you to think outside of the traditional to find the perfect gadget gift. (Although, let’s face it: a person can never have too many Bluetooth speakers.)
