5 Gifts for Tech Savvy Moms

Hi friends!  Can you believe it's late November and time to start your holiday shopping?  I cannot!  I don't even know where this whole year went.  Today, I'm sharing with you some fun gift ideas for the tech savvy mom.  I feel like more and more of my mom friends are getting into tech stuff.

This post is a collaboration with Misfit, I was gifted a watch to review.  As always, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.  This post also contains affiliate links.  If you buy from these links, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.

1. Misfit Path hybrid smartwatch.  One of the things that stops me from wearing a fitness tracker is the way it looks.  I'm constantly taking photos with things in my hands and it's a pain to take off my tracker each time, cue Misfit Path.  It's a smartwatch that looks like a regular watch.  It tracks steps, sleep, and even sends you notifications when you get a text or call on your phone.  You can set up your contacts to correspond with numbers so if my son calls or texts, my watch will buzz and go to the number 2.  This is perfect for when I'm in meetings or out with friends.  I'm not looking at my phone the whole time but if my son needs me, I can excuse myself and answer.  You can also set it up to ring your phone if you hit a button a certain amount of times, perfect for excusing yourself from awkward conversation at school pick up or PTA meetings.  Basically beyond being a smartwatch, it's a lifesaver.  You can purchase them at

2. Battery Pack.  I know this sounds like a boring gift but I also feel like not a lot of people have these.  If you're like me, you constantly take pictures on your phone.  After half a day of taking photos, videos, and probably uploading some of them to Instagram Stories, my battery is dead.  Also, if I'm out at lunch and let my kids play games or videos so I can eat in peace.  A battery pack has saved me more than once.  Package it with a pop socket and a cute case if you want to bulk out your gift.  My pick is the Anker PowerCore 10000.

3. iPhone Lenses.  The best camera is the one you have on you.  I stopped carrying a DSLR a long time ago because lugging that, 3 small children, and a giant diaper bag wasn't going to happen.  I take all my photos with my phone.  (Are you shocked?)  iPhone lenses will help you up your photo game! You can get all sorts from wide angle to telephoto (hello recital photos) to macro and even fish eye.  I currently have inexpensive lenses but I have my eye on the Moment Tele lens for taking picture of my kids from far away.

4. Circle with Disney.  With a husband who works in tech and me working on the computer and phone all day, it's basically impossible to keep the kids off of technology.  While ideally I would stare over their shoulder every second they are online, that's not always possible.  (3 kids and I only have one set of eyes.)  We use the Circle to help manage things.  You set up a profile for each person in your house and you can track everything they do online.  You can limit the amount they are on any specific app and put parental controls on the content.  You can also "reward" them with more time.  You can set bedtimes so everything is not accessible after say 8pm.  You can also pause the internet for your whole network if you want to have a nice family dinner.

5. Lumee Duo Selfie Phone Case.  Come fall, I dread taking pictures since it is so dark and flash is extremely unflattering.  The Lumee really helps with that.  I have used various kind of light designed for cell phones and Lumee has the most flattering light.  It's a soft and warm light that I cannot find on any cheaper options.  It lights front and back so you can use both cameras and it's also a protective case for your phone.
Hope this helps your holiday gift buying!  If you want more holiday gift guides, please let me know and I can do more.
