Mother's Day Travel Tech Gift Guide

Mother's Day Travel Tech Gift Guide:

Does your mom travel by car?

Keep the passengers entertained with pre-loaded games, shows, and movies.

Tablet Holder
Easiest way to watch movies and shows for the rear passengers is hands-free with the iPad or other tablet mounted onto the seat's headrest

For a quick and quality shot from the car or a quick pit stop, a small digital camera would a great travel gadget for mom. A point-and-shoot with great optical zoom will let you shoot from a distance yet get clear up-close shots. Cameras, such as the one below, also have 1080p videos, high sensitivity sensor with 20 Megapixels.

Does your mom take the long and more scenic way on a train?

Pocket Tripod
One of the biggest benefits of train travel is the scenery. When traveling through the countryside, it is likely that you would have an opportunity to get out and take it in and take some shots. To get the best shot set up a tripod, especially at dawn or dusk. The Tiltpod Pocket Tripod is one top gadget in this category. It attaches to your camera’s strap, and is small enough to carry in your handbag.

Good camera captures a lot of light at the right moments and limits the light coming in at another. Cameras best at this are DSLRs. On train trip you would get the best scenic shots with a semi-pro camera that is quite user friendly.
Top Recommendations for Travel & Outdoor Photography

Train travel is a slower pace trip. The time spent in travel also would let your mom or anyone else traveling with her to catch up on movies, shows, and making of albums, movies and other things that have been pushed aside by regular daily activities. And, if really have to, catch up on some work stuff as well.

Portable External Battery Charger
All these devices need to remain charged up to be used during the trip.  A battery charger with lots of mAh would keep your mom's gadgets going throughout the trip.

Does your mom take a flight to reach her holiday destination?

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
Screaming kids, teenagers, and adults. Not a great combination in a small enclosed space. Tune all of these out with a good pair noise-cancelling. headphones. Headphones, such as the Bose Quiet Comfort cancel out all noise around you. Enjoy the silence or listen to your own music, without having to turn it up to hear it clearly.

Mom can get comfy in limited space and also tune out the surroundings with a good book. On Kindle, she can preload multiple titles to pass the time in the airport and on the airplane.

Does your mom like to take in the sites on a cruise?

Two-Way Radio
A walkie-talkie might seem like a rather old fashioned type of gadget to use, though if you’re traveling with a family or a few friends it is a great way to stay in touch on a cruise ship. Ships are well known for their lack of (or blocking) cellular services and Wi-Fi. Which makes it very hard or very expensive to communicate using your smartphone. A set of walkie-talkies makes it simple to keep track of everyone around the ship and get together whenever necessary.

Travel Bag
A great travel bag can be different things in different situations. It can serve as a day pack on a tour, a camera bag, snack bag, backpack, and even diaper/kid bag. I am a big fan of multi-function travel gear. I have wrote about our Lowepro bag on multiple occasions (Deliberations of a Traveling Photographer (aka my wife)and What women want - travel edition). With a new baby, we now do not leave the house without our beach cooler backpack. It has large pocket for all the essentials, a small pocket for accessories, and alos had a cooler bottom portion to keep food, drinks and milk chilled during the trip.

Custom iPad Cases With Your Family Photos
Until this post I didn't know such things existed. I have seen the strange and colorful skins available for smartphones, but not something as useful and interesting as the photo decor for your laptop, tablet, and Kindle that has your family photos on it.
