If you have an active wife that needs solid iPhone protection combined with a smooth style, Tech Armor cases are a great choice. Create a Mother’s day tech gift pack by combining a case with a couple of Tech Armor accessories, like glass covers and a USB chargers that protect and extend the functionality of your smartphone investment. I have tested out several Tech Armor products and they are high quality products that are reasonably priced. The cases have a thin profile with a high level of protection and they have a lifetime warranty. My Tech Armor case is my favorite. More info: tech armor.com

Pampered Chef Bamboo Tablet Stand
I love this Mother’s Day tech gift! This versatile stand holds cookbooks, tablet devices of all sizes (with or without cases) and collapses to a small size for storage. Plus, it cleans easily and it is very sturdy. There are three different viewing angles you can choose (it is like a lounge chair for your tablet!) ;-} You can have your recipes on your tablet while you cook, your shopping lists, your kitchen timers, etc. If you happen to be using the bamboo stand with a cookbook, there are two hidden page holders that flip up to keep your pages from turning. This multi function handy accessory will please any tablet yielding mother (even a picky one, like me).
