Motherhood is one of, if not the MOST difficult job there is. This is when a woman marks a new chapter in her life. Up until recently, I’ve celebrated Mother’s Day for my mom, relatives, as well as friends. Now that we’ve welcomed our son Josiah King, I finally joined the club and earned the bragging rights to celebrate the event. Here’s the thing though, I personally never really thought much of the day until now. My mama and my husband are already keeping an eye out on the “big day,” and I honestly don’t want to receive a gift that is an obvious cliché.
Yes, MOM, I don’t want the chocolates –even if it’s my favorite.
Yes, Hubby, I’m sure I’d pass on the flowers too!
Truth be told, Flowers and Chocolates aren’t necessarily cliché, in fact, it is a classic romantic gesture. Here’s the thing though, “Valentines Day” just passed not that long ago, and these gifts are an obvious choice. If you’re wondering what can be a great alternative to brighten your loved one’s day, check out my foolproof ❝ MOM APPROVED ❞ must-have gifts that are readily available at your local Best Buy store!
Amazon Echo Spot and Arlo Pro 2 Security Camera System
What sets this gift apart from the rest is the fact that it’s a gift that keeps on giving! It’s not another bunch of flowers that wilt after a few days. It doesn’t get forgotten after getting eaten. Its usefulness becomes a part of your daily life and helps keep an eye on everything and everyone that you love. Plus the fact that you get a smart AI as your personal assistant. Here’s a quick breakdown why I highly recommend these smart devices!
Amazon Echo Spot
Between all the Amazon devices, only two are equipped with smart displays – the Amazon Echo Spot and Amazon Echo Show. In my honest opinion, the Echo Spot is a better choice and a $100 cheaper! I love the sleek, compact design that looks utterly stylish and fits comfortably into any room. While the screen is only 2.5 inch, its display and resolution is relatively SHARP and crystal clear.
To date and from my personal experience, it is the smartest alarm clock ever! I can’t get enough of the hands-free voice control feature. Plus the fact that it works with compatible smart devices that can turn on the lights (Philips Hue), manage a power outlet (WeMo), Play Music (Sonos One), control as well as set temperature (Nest Thermostat), and a whole lot more. BUT my favorite feature amongst all is the ability to check in our little guy with a home security system! You guessed it, with the Arlo Pro 2.
Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Indoor/Outdoor Security Camera System
After welcoming our little one, there’s one thing that my husband and I agreed on right away. That is keeping our home SAFE and SECURE. Most especially that I work from home. With the help of Arlo Pro 2 Security Camera System, hubby and I can keep an eye out for practically everything!!! Every angle and corner of our house inside or out is covered. Not only is it motion activated, but it also responds to sound too!
The alerts go straight to our smartphones so even if hubby is away, he can Live Stream what’s going on in real time. While I am multi-tasking or working in the office, and even in the middle of the night, I can check in on our son with the Alexa Echo Spot. Talk about convenient!
Like I said, the Amazon Echo Spot and Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Indoor/Outdoor Security Camera System is the perfect gift because it keeps on giving. So what are you waiting for?
