Bringing fresh technology to a classic camera, images can be captured in digital quality and printed straight onto iconic Polaroid paper to create great family snaps whereever you are.
A little reminder of the cheeky faces waiting for you at home, this digital photo keychain is a great personal touch for the tech savvy mums on the go. Attach to keys or a work lanyard to keep your little ones close by as you work.
If you are forever snapping away on your smartphone but never get round to transferring them to your computer to print them off then this is the gadget for you. This handheld, portable printer uses bluetooth technology to wirelessly print off images from your phone or digital camera on high quality, ink free Zink paper. Perfect for tech mums who want a hardcopy of their digital images.
Whether your brand of choice is iPad, blackberry, android or archos, there’s a tablet out there to suit all of your needs. From the grocery shopping list, to taking notes at an important meeting, every mum can find a use for a tablet (and so can little ones so make sure it’s locked away!).
This gift is at the top of it’s game in both coolness and style. Combining the classic retro phone design with a digital screen, cordless receiver and caller ID amongst other features, the Sagemcom Sixty is definitely on our Christmas list.
The budding photographer will definitely appreciate this camera lens style mug. The flared lens lid keeps the contents hot and also doubles up as a coaster, or biscuit holder.
Keen gardeners will know that keeping plants at their optimum water levels is no easy feat. That’s why a clever person invented the Thirsty Light. This little probe device sits in the soil of your plant pot and blinks with the soil is too dry. You’ll never accidentally murder a house plant ever again.
Waterproof covers for phones and tablets are a welcome gift for most mums. They can enjoy technology whilst taking a soak in the tub, or snap great underwater photos without having to buy a fancy new camera.
It’s no great secret that mums aren’t the only ones to enjoy technology. Little hands love it too. That’s why we’re including a waterproof keyboard in our gadget gift list. Whether your keyboard has just been fed digestive biscuits or a cup of juice, simply stick it in with the dishes (or even the dishwasher!) to get it nice and clean again.
For our eco tech mums out there, we bring to you a 100% biodegradable hot or cold drinks carrier. In a cutesy can design, this modern flask is good for five years of use before it starts to break down into the environment.
