Last Minute Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Gifts
We know you’re busy, so are we. To save you a few minutes, we put together this fun last-minute guide for finding your parental figures the best tech gifts this spring.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and before you know it, Father’s Day will have come and gone too. If you don’t have a gift in mind yet, fear not because we’re lending you a helping hand.
We love celebrating the amazing parents that work at Cypress. As the fearless, and somewhat sleep deprived, leaders of our future Problem Solvers, you deserve to be pampered by your families on your day. Sure, getting a handmade card from your children is cute, but we wanted to know what was really on your wish list.
Unfortunately, we can’t gift peace and quiet, and some alone time, but we can suggest cool gadgets! In a recent company survey, we asked Cypress’ moms and dads what connected devices they would love to receive from their family. For those of you who love to wait until the last minute…*clears throat*… check out this gift guide filled with parent-requested gadgets.
1. Apple Watch
For the sporty mom or dad in your life, or the parent that seems to always be running a bit late, gift them the Apple Watch. We all know it’s stylish and sleek, and as one Cypress employee noted, it can help to increase productivity by displaying calls and text messages. Less time on the phone means more time with family – sounds like a win-win to us! You can purchase one here.
2. Hidrate Spark 2.0
Keeping up with kids can be exhausting. Trying to remember to drink enough water per day is even more exhausting. (Seriously, who has time for that?) Cue solution: the Hidrate Spark 2.0. Yes, we are recommending a water bottle as a gift for superhero parents. The Spark 2.0 is a smart bottle that lights up throughout the day to remind you to drink more water until your goal is met. Added bonus: the bottle’s integrated sensors connect to your favorite fitness applications and automatically record how much water you have consumed. Inspire the next generation of Problem Solvers while staying hydrated? Mission accomplished! Get your eco-friendly gift here.
3. Nest Home Security System
All parents know that no noise can be suspicious; it usually means the kids are getting into trouble. With the Nest Cam indoor security camera, you can really give your parent all-seeing eyes. This Cypress enabled connected device allows you to monitor your household 24/7. You can check out the camera’s full set of awesome features here. For those parents who want more advanced home security, Nest Cam also comes in an outdoor version! Rain or shine, gift your parents peace of mind.
4. Apple AirPods
Parents are masters at multitasking. Between chasing toddlers and getting to meetings on time, we don’t know how you’re able to do it all. Some Cypress parents are hoping you’ll give the gift of wireless connectivity via Apple’s AirPods. These Bluetooth enabled devices not only look cool, they’ll help your parents to stay connected and level-up their multitasking capabilities. It’s time to help your parents ditch the cord, get their AirPods here. Or if you’re looking for something a bit different, check out TechRadar’s full list of the best wireless headphones of 2018.
5. HP Sprocket Photo Printer
By the number of embarrassing childhood photos your parents still keep (we’ve all had an awkward stage), photos are always a timeless gift that your mom or dad will love. With the HP Sprocket Photo Printer, parents can capture their favorite moments and instantly print. To get your parent started with this connected device, purchase here.
6. Amazon Echo
This is one voice your parents definitely won’t mind hearing before their first cup of coffee in the morning! The Amazon Echo is the perfect connected gadget that shares information using voice commands. From repeating the daily weather forecast to dictating recipes, the Echo helps even the busiest parents avoid the tedious task of browsing the Internet. The best part about Echo is that it’s fun for the entire family! As one Cypress employee said, “Amazon Echo brings the family together for dancing and singing using Amazon Music.” Hey Alexa, where can I buy an Amazon Echo?
We hope you found this parent-inspired gift guide helpful! Maybe you’ll even start your shopping a bit earlier next year! As a parent, or guardian, is there a connected gadget you’ve had your eye on recently? Tell us in the comments below!
Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday – we’re also looking forward to Father’s Day next month!
