Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday, is recognised and celebrated around the world and here on {Tech} for Travel it’s no different.  Over the coming weeks, most countries will be celebrating their mums, and this year why not ditch the chocolates or flowers and treat mom to something a bit special!





Bang & Olufsen BEOPlay H8i Headphones


There was a brief period of time where it looked like the wireless headphone market was going the way of the smartphone one – generic!  Luckily we have B&O!

The new H8is in Natural finish look great, can provide up to 30 hours of playback, have advanced active noise cancelling technology and support wireless and wired connections.

Buy direct from B&O or Amazon for Prime delivery, both at £349.



Knomo Fulham 10.5″ Knomad Organiser


This organiser from Knomo is your all-in-one mobile office with a pocket, pouch or holder for everything your mum could need for a day at work!

Either in a bag or carried as is, the Knomad is suitable for most standard tablets, can protect contactless cards thanks to the RFID & water-resistant material and storage for a power pack to keep the digital devices topped up during the day.

The Fulham 10.5″ Knomad Organiser is £59 from Knomo.



Revolar Instinct


If your mum travels a lot why not invest in peace of mind for her, and for you?

The Revolar Instinct is a discrete wearable device that works with a smartphone, via bluetooth to help notify family members if the holder is in danger or feels unsafe.  The notification list can be edited as can the warning messages.

The device is operated by pressing once, twice or three times with each giving a different warning.

There is currently 25% off the Revolar Instinct, priced at £43.64 direct from Revolar.



Fitbit Charge 2


Nothing says “I love you Mum” than letting her know you care about her health!  A Fitbit for both your mum and you could result in a healthier lifestyle!

With a built-in heart rate monitor the Charge 2 is one of the most complete all round fitness trackers on the market.  It can monitor sleep patterns, track a variety of sport and has individual or competition challenges between friends to compete in.

Prices start from £109 on Amazon with Prime shipping, or £139 from Fitbit.



LugLoc Locator


Admittedly, a luggage locator may not be everyone’s first choice of a gift on Mother’s Day.  But, if your mum travels extensively, then LugLoc could be the perfect gift!

The LugLoc uses GPS, Wifi and Bluetooth to provide the most accurate information as to where in the world your luggage is, if the airline doesn’t know!  Open up the free smartphone app and see for yourself on the map!

All new LugLoc ship with 1 month free connection.  A basic model is $69, or with a 1 year subscription, $89 direct from LugLoc.  The basic model with one month free is also available from Amazon for £69.
