Ah, mothers. What do we do without them?
Admittedly, we have all been a pain to our moms at some point in our lives (and maybe until now, most definitely until now). This is the true test of a mother’s undying love — that they tolerate us, after all these years.
This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day, the perfect holiday to show our love and appreciation to our biggest fan despite how sucky we can get/are as people.
Here are gadget gift suggestions for the main women in our lives.
ILIFE V7 Sweeping Robot Home Vacuum – $146.99
This vacuum will do the work for her, not just on Mother’s Day but every day that comes after! This nifty gadget takes the work off your mom’s hands. (Because if you’re not going to do the chores she asked you to do, someone/something has to!)
This smart planter has built-in sensors that can monitor your plant’s needs — sort of like how mothers (without us saying anything) know what’s better for us, even if we never listen.
It also has a “plant sitter” mode, useful for days your mom decides to go on well-deserved vacations (from you). It comes with a free app!
Vivo V5 Plus – PhP 19,990
You could stop giving your mum headaches, or you could just document the few times you actually do good and make her happy. This is a great smartphone that will capture your mother’s every smile!
Fitbit Alta HR – $129.95 (PhP 6,479)
Give the gift of health! This fitness wearable will help your mom monitor her sleep, physical activities, and heart rate — which means you have a gauge of how mad she is the next time you do something stupid. It also comes in coral and fuchsia.
JBL Pulse 2 Bluetooth Speaker – $99.99
This thing is not only good on the eyes, it’s good on the ears, too! This powerful wireless speaker can drown out your whining, connect via Bluetooth, has 10 hours of play time, and it gives a beautiful light show. It’s splash-proof, as well!
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X – $159.99
For the mother who likes her mobile games, here’s a gift that will ensure she can play all the Bejewelled she wants as she ignores more of your spoiled whining.
Philips Hue Bloom – $59.99
Something for the home she’s lovingly kept — with no help from your lazy self. Control light settings with your phone and save energy with LED technology.
Dyson Supersonic – $494.99
Here’s a top-of-the-line, high-tech hair blower because your mom only deserves the best. (I mean, in theory, but she also has you so…) It has four heat settings, three airflow settings, and a removable filter.
HP Sprocket Photo Printer – $129.99
This printer will allow mom to print beautiful family memories (minus all the fights you picked) to decorate the house with! It’s small, compact, and connects via Bluetooth for fuss-free operation.
Kindle Paperwhite – $99.99
The perfect device for a mom who loves to read! A single battery charge lasts for weeks; that’s pretty long — almost as long as your mom’s undying patience for you!
Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System – $129.99
Create the perfect cup of coffee for the perfect mother, because honestly, she needs all the energy to deal with your antics all the way into adulthood.
Cheers to all the great, wonderful women whose love we mostly don’t deserve (what, with all our millennial whining)! To be a mother is an extraordinary feat, and I could only aspire to be as great a person as my mother is (and, fine, yours too).
Happy Mother’s Day!

Sony WH-1000XM5 is a luxury for your ears
Improve noise cancelation and audio quality
Sony remains one of the most important players in the noise-canceling realm. While Bose is also a force in the industry, Sony is doing what it can to improve its own audio technology. Following up its impressive flagship lineup of headphones, the company has announced the WH-1000XM5, a new pair for your discerning ears.
Much like its predecessor, the WH-1000XM5 follows the same tradition of design. The sleeker evolution makes way for a softer, more comfortable fit around your skull, bolstered by synthetic leather.
Under the hood, the headphones sports an additional processor to improve noise cancelation, especially in mid to high frequency ranges. It can also adapt to various user scenarios like those who wear glasses or have long hair.
As always, Sony is also focusing on audio quality. The 30mm driver uses a light dome with carbon fiber composite material to deliver natural sound. Plus, with Sony’s LDAC coding technology, users can enjoy Hi-Fi Audio. DSEE Extreme automatically upscales audio files to high quality. Finally, if your audio can support it, the headphones is compatible with 360 Reality Audio.
The WH-1000XM5 also worked on call quality with four beamforming microphones on the device and noise reduction.
Starting May 20, users can buy the WM-1000XM5 for US$ 399.99.
