Cricut

Help make your mom the hottest DIY'er since Martha Stewart, with the Cricut Explore Air 2. It's a self-proclaimed "DIY speed machine" – and if you watch videos of this thing in action, you'll see that it really lives up to its hype. I don't even DIY, but I NEED this machine. It cuts, writes and draws whatever you tell it to, using custom or pre-loaded patterns and templates that you create on your phone or computer. It can cut every material from cardstock to leather, which will help you add personality to your home decor projects, parties, events, weddings, clothing, etc. Need custom paper cups for your next party? Maybe some homemade Halloween decorations? Or how about your name cut out in bright letters that your mother can hang in the hallway? This machine can do it.

多功能手工机-Cricut Explore Air 2

有了Cricut Explore Air 2的帮助,您妈妈就能成为继Martha Stewart之后最炙手可热的DIY大师。这台机器自称"DIY速度神器"–如果您看过它运作的视频,眼见为实的经历定能明白神器走红的原因。我不怎么DIY,但我一样需要这台机器。它能裁剪、书写、绘制任何您想要的东西,无论是预设或者预装的图样,还是您在自己手机或电脑上创造的模板。用它可以裁出任何材料,像硬纸板、皮革,无所不能,做出的花样能帮助您为自己的家居、派对、仪式、婚礼、服饰添上个性化元素。下一场派对需要私人订制纸杯?万圣节上想用自制的饰品来装点一番?又或者把您的名字剪成色彩艳丽的字母挂在门厅?这台机器都能办到。

Hidrate Spark

Sometimes the best gifts are expensive versions of regular things that you would never buy for yourself. Enter the Hidrate Spark 2.0. It's a $55 water bottle – but it's so high-tech, it's like the Nasa of drinking devices. Sync it up with the app on your phone and it will monitor your water intake throughout the day. It keeps you on track with your goals by recording your every sip with fun, light-up icons and scales. The best part is, if you "forget" to reach for the bottle, it lights up and glows to remind to you drink. It's like an alarm clock, except you don't want to throw it out the window because it looks so pretty.

每天喝水总量提示功能的水杯-Hidrate Spark

有时候,最好的礼物就是那些您都不会为自己买的平常之物升级版。Hidrate Spark 2.0是一款$55的水杯–然而它是如此充满科技含量,就像美国航空航天局才会用的饮水装备。 让Hidrate Spark和您手机上的应用同步,它就会监测您一整天水的摄入。通过记录您每一次喝水,您就能跟踪自己饮水目标的完成情况,还会点亮各种有趣的图标,生成量度视图。最棒的是,如果您“忘记”拿起它喝水,水杯会自行亮起来发光,提醒您该喝水了。它就像闹钟,而且它的高颜值也不会让您想要把它从窗口扔出去。

Handy App

If your mom is the one who takes care of the house (sorry Dad) – give her the gift of a day off. Handy is basically the Uber of household chores. They use reliable, professional handymen-for-hire to help with anything and everything around the house: they will clean, paint, hang photos, mount TV's, help you move, and assemble your furniture. They also offer amazing discounts for first time users. The Handy app is available in most major cities in Canada, but head to the website to see if it's available in your area.

家务管理软件

如果您的家里都由您妈妈负责打理(对不起了,老爸)–那就把这个作为母亲节礼物让她好好休息一天。Handy简单说起来就是管理家务活的“出租车”公司,他们通过雇用可靠专业的居家打理人员,帮助您应对各种家里的杂物活。他们为打扫房间、刷墙涂漆、挂照片、安电视机、帮您搬动及组装家具。初次使用还能享受到不错的折扣。Handy软件在加拿大主要城市都能使用,您可以上他们的官网看看服务是否覆盖您的地区。

Dyson hair dryer

If you want your mom to be on the cutting edge of technology – buy her the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer. (Their limited Mother's Day edition comes with a pink carrying case.) It had revolutionized the hair dryer by making us constantly question how it works, based on its supersonic design. It's small and lightweight, and even uses "intelligent heat control" to prevent extreme heat damage. Who doesn't want that? It's also one of Oprah's favourite things. She says, "it gets the job done superfast and is worth every penny!"

黑科技Dyson吹风机

倘若您想要自己的妈妈走在科技潮流的尖端–那就为她买个Dyson Supersonic电吹风吧。(他们推出了配有粉红色携带盒的母亲节限定款)。我们经常对电吹风如何运作留有疑问,而Dyson将超音速运用到吹风机设计中,彻底革新了这一发明。Dyson Supersonic 电吹风轻巧便携,智能热控技术能防止送风过热对秀发造成损伤。这样的黑科技有谁不想要呢?它也是Oprah最爱的产品之一。她说,“用它吹头发超级快,绝对物有所值!”

T-Fal Actifry

Do you want your mom to be able to eat all the french fries and chicken wings she wants without gaining a POUND? Well this next machine won't do that, but it's probably the closest you're going to get. It's the T-Fal Actifry, which is also known as a "healthy frier". It will give you that crispy, deep fried goodness using only ONE spoonful of oil. It does so by using its patented "Hot Air" technology to evenly distribute heat during the cooking cycle. Sure! I'm more interested in the fact that there's a 2-in-1 version, meaning you can make those fries and wings at the exact same time!

健康炸锅-T-Fal Actifry

想要您妈妈放开大吃炸薯条、炸鸡翅而丝毫不用担心长胖吗?下面介绍的机器也许是最接近您想要的。T-Fal Actifry也叫做“健康炸锅”。只需一小勺油就能炸出松脆的美味。运用专利“热空气”技术,能在整个烹调过程中均衡分散热能。当然!我最感兴趣的还要数二合一款,能让您炸薯条和炸鸡同时出炉两不误!

Trakdot luggage tracker

Give your mom some peace of mind the next time she travels, with the Trakdot luggage tracker. It's a small box (the size of a pager – I mean, what's that?) that you put in your suitcase before traveling by plane. If the airline loses your luggage (happens to the best of us) the device will send a message to its app on your phone and tell you exactly where it is! From there – I guess all you do is storm up to the customer service desk, full of power and information on where to find your bag. So it's a luggage tracker AND and ego boost!

Trakdot行李追踪器

有了Trakdot行李追踪器,下次您妈妈旅行时就省心多了。小小的一个盒子(仅有传呼机大小),只消在登机前放上您的旅行箱。如果航司遗失了您的行李(偶尔也会碰到这种倒霉事),这个小东西会发信息到您手机应用上,告诉您行李丢在了哪儿!从那里–我想您要做的就是兴冲冲地跑到海关服务台,凭信息理直气壮地找回您的行李。所以这不仅仅是个行李追踪器,还能给您的自信心打气!
