For moms that love to read, a subscription to an interesting magazine is always a smart gift. Ideally, your gift should be a magazine she couldn’t pick up at the newsstand in her neighborhood. Three cool options to consider are Mental Floss, Gastronomica, and Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.
Mental Floss is a great choice for moms who love trivia, history, and weird stories. Gastronomicais the perfect gift for moms who idolize Anthony Bourdain, or moms who spend all day watching the Food Network.

It makes the perfect gift for moms who love a good mystery, or moms who just need some beach reads for their summer vacation.

THEATRE BOX is a wireless speaker from ACEMILE. It’s billed as “the world’s first commercially available portable wireless speaker that delivers a 360-degree 3D surround audio experience.” That’s kind of a mouthful, but essentially what makes this speaker cool is that it sounds equally good to everyone in the room, no matter where they are sitting in relation to the speaker.
Mom will like it because it looks cute, and doesn’t involve any messy wires or complicated set-up. You’ll like it because you can pair with pretty much any device via Bluetooth, making it easy to use when you visit her. The speaker boasts up to 20 hours of playback time, and does not require any apps or Internet connection to work.
