Mother’s Day gift ideas can be a quite difficult procedure, especially when you have to look outside the box. Jewelry, flowers and coffee mugs with nice quotes on them is kind of clichéd.

Is your mom an avid reader? Then Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite is the perfect e-book reader for her. With the current Kindle Paperwhite (2015) getting a resolution bump, thereby increasing the ppi from 212 to 300, it is the best Kindle you can buy now. It uses the same 6in E ink Carta display present in the Voyage but it comes with a lesser price tag.
Bose SoundLink Mini II
Everyone likes listening to music and Bose has reputation for delivering crisp sound and well-constructed speakers.
