2014 Mother’s Day Gift Guide

As we’ve said throughout the years, moms always appreciate it when you put some thought into their gift. Of course, you can always go with flowers or chocolates, but something more personal is usually better. Whether you’re buying for your mom, your wife or another important woman in your life, think about their interests and what would bring a smile to their face.

Some moms also love gadgets that make their lives easier, so keep that in mind as well. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started.

SodaStream Source

SodaStream has been around longer than most people probably realize, but it’s really gained in popularity these last couple years due to people living on tighter budgets, becoming more eco-friendly and living healthier lifestyles. That’s because the carbonated beverage machine addresses all three issues by costing less money (at least after the initial investment), using BPA-free containers that are reusable and easy to clean, and offering a variety of flavors without the use of harmful sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup. It also helps that the SodaStream is so easy to use. You fill the bottle with water, connect it to the machine, press down for a few seconds to activate the carbonation, and add your syrup flavor of choice. The included CO2 canister produces up to 60 liters of fizzy beverages, and when it’s empty, you simply trade it in for a new one at a participating retail store, just like you would with a propane gas tank. And because you can make so many different flavors at the drop of a dime, you don’t have to stock up on bulky two-liters or 24-packs of soda in order to please every member of the family, which makes this about as close to a must-have household item as it gets.

The Whirl Desktop Laser Mouse

With Father’s Day around the corner, we’ll be reviewing gadgets and other gift ideas. We just checked out the Whirl™ Desktop Laser Mouse w/ Anti-Gravity Comfort Pivot, and it’s a great item for anyone looking for an ergonomic mouse or an inexpensive gift for dad.

If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer, you know how important it can be to have an ergonomic setup at your desk. You want to be comfortable, and you don’t want to develop any pain from repetitive motions or an awkward work area. Minor changes can make a big difference, and it’s also important to break up your routine and take frequent breaks.

With that in mind, we tried out the Whirl™ Laser Mouse and came away impressed. This desktop mouse works with any computer, including laptops, and it features their patented ErgoMotion™ pivot system. The mouse pivots on a head while a flat surface glides along the muse pad, so the mouse moves as you turn your wrist. The end result is a comfortable unit that is very easy to use.
