Accessories for moms on the go

- May 5th, 2011

Ila Pebble Pink

While we all know that Mom will probably appreciate anything we get her for Mother’s Day, the truth is she really doesn’t need another toaster, another bottle of perfume or something that’s just going to take up more space in the house. So why not get your Mother something that she can really use when she’s out and about?


Keep Mom Safe

You can help keep Mom safe with a Pebble Key Ring Alarm from ila. It’s a fashionable, small lightweight and very discreet keychain, that in case of emergency will blare out a deafening 130dB unique woman’s scream, simply by pushing the central button and pulling out the ring. The alarm will last for up to 10 min or until you reattach the stem. Its non-removable battery should last up to three years.

Retailing for $19.99, it comes in two colours; black with white swirls or red with polka dots and is distributed in Canada by Abbott and is available in many retail and gift shops.

iWatchzApple

Instant Wristwatch

The iWatchz Q Series can easily let Mom turn her 6th Gen Apple iPod nano into a cool and fashionable wristwatch and at the same time still let her use it as an iPod. It’s designed not to impede access to any of the iPod’s controls or buttons so she doesn’t have to remove it to access any functions.

It’s well designed. The band is made of strong silicone and the clasps and hardware are made from steel. All Mom has to remember to do is press, slide and click to attach – it’s that easy. If Mom doesn’t have a compatible iPod nano, you can get her one of those, too!

It sells for $29.95 and is available in 5 colours including hot pink. You can purchase it directly from the Apple Canada on-line store or from your favourite retailer.

MichaelKors

Luxurious Leather

Perhaps your Mom prefers something stylish and elegant. If so why not consider getting her a Michael Kors Wallet Clutch for iPhone. It’s handcrafted from full-grain premium Nappa leather and has pockets with room for her credit cards and ID. As an added touch, it’s finished with Michael Kors Golden signature logo hardware. It practical too! It’s designed so that you can easily plug in your iPod connector and headphones without removing it from the case.

The wallet clutch comes in three colors black patent; golden pebble and even a python print and they are compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4. It sells for $84.95 and is also available through the Apple Canada online store.

For the Weekend Warrior

While some Moms prefer true elegance, others are weekend warriors who prefer accessories that’ll survive in the rough and tough terrain. Or maybe, just maybe, Mom might just be the gravity challenged type, although she may never admit it. Either way, wink, wink, you might want to consider getting Mom a BullFrog Case for iPhone 4, by iFrogz.

It’s durable, with a rugged polycarbonate core, surrounded by a ribbed silicone exterior. It’s easy to grip and will protect Mom’s iPhone from impact – within reason of course. And when Mom is off camping or off doing heavy duty work, the BullFrog case keeps the buttons and ports covered with removable guards to avoid her iPhone 4 from being exposed to dust and dirt from the elements.

It comes in three colors; black with neon green trim, orange with black trim and gray with black trim. It sells for $34.99 US and is available from iFrogz.

A Happy Mother’s Day, to all Moms out there.

    I purchased one of these as I do a lot of camping and climbing and the weather has been so dodgy this year. It offers great protection for my ibaby (as I like to call my phone).

    I assume you mean the BullFrog case?

    I do mean the Bullfrog case :) – My eyes skipped right passed the fru-fru to the “weekend warrior” part of your post.
