Mother’s Day gift guide for your techie mum

Today might be Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you). But this coming Sunday is more important as it is Mother’s Day! If your mom happens to be a tech savvy person, or simply love gadgets, here is a list of techie gift ideas that you might find useful.

Samsung Galaxy A73 5G
From S$698 (available from May 6), get it at Shopee

Get a quality smartphone for your mom without burning a hole in your pocket with Samsung’s latest Galaxy A73 5G. It features a rear quad-camera system comprising a 108-megapixel (MP) wide-angle main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro camera and a 5MP depth-sensing camera.

A 32MP selfie camera on its 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display allows your mum to take fantastic selfies. The display features 120Hz refresh rate, so she can watch all her favourite videos or admire her grandchildren photos with incredible detail and clarity. The A73 also has a IP67 water and dust resistance rating, so she can afford to touch the smartphone with her hands wet.

Dyson Supersonic
S$649, get it at Dyson Store

This is not just a hair dryer. It is a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer with a V9 digital motor that spins at 110,000rpm to deliver high-velocity jet of controlled air for fast drying and precision styling.

It comes with several attachments, including a Flyaway attachment. This convex-shaped attachment works by attracting and lifting longer hairs to the front, while pushing the flyaways through the tress and out of sight. Hiding these flyaways increases strand alignment and enhances natural shine of your mom’s hair. And she will no doubt thank you for it.
