Wow, Mom’s Day is only days away! I was just speaking with my siblings this weekend trying to figure out what we’re going to get Mom for Mother’s Day this Coming Sunday!
Mom’s can be hard to shop for, especially when it comes to finding something she will really love and appreciate. I tend to go the flowers route, but find that even though they are beautiful, this type of gift can be so impersonal. This year I really wanted to find Mom something she could really use and would love too!

My Mom isn’t much of Spring Chicken these days, but I’m loving how far even the older generations are coming when it comes to technology now. I was amazed to see my Dad use an Ipad and start up a Facebook account over the last few years. Then I about fell out my chair in January when my mom texted me for the very first time (and from a smartphone, no less!). I never in a million years thought my parents (people in their mid-sixties) would ever come around to technology.
But since then, I’ve been paying attention and my parents have delved into the technology world a lot further that I had realized. So I actually decided to go the technology route for a gift guide this year and for shopping for my own mom!

A Handy WaterProof Cell Phone Case to Keep Mom’s Smartphone Completely Protected when Playing Near or In water this Summer:
When shopping for my own mom, I thought about our summers filled with boating and water activities. Now that mom has got a smartphone, and uses it often to stay connected to the family (all 20+ of us) when we all gather together every summer for a boating trip to the Mountains in Eden, UT, and Lake Pineview, I know she will be toting it around on the boat so we can arrange boat pickups of other family members, etc.
My first thought was to get My Mom a waterproof cell phone case. While I don’t think my mom is as clumsy as me (Oh yeah I got one of these for myself for my boating weekends this year!) why not take that extra safety measure and keep your phone extra safe in one of these completely waterproof cases! Because I’m not looking to drop another grand on another Iphone any time soon, and I’m sure Mom would feel the same way about hers!) If you drop your phone in the lake with this fabulous case on, no biggie (as long as it doesn’t sink!) These waterproof phone cases from Aowoto are completely waterproof for up to 30 mins! Don’t believe me, I tested mine! Because to be honest, I was a bit skeptical too. I mean, how can a case be completely waterproof, right?! Well, this one is!
I snapped the case together (no phone in it!) and actually was quite surprised to see how tight this case is. I’m not gonna lie, it takes a minute to completely close it. It is so tight, and so sealed completely, you really have to work for a bit to snap it into place. Same with getting it off, although I actually found using a flat tip screwdriver in the bottom right hand corner where the case has a bit of a divit, helped pop it off quite easily and quickly!
Once the waterproof case is snapped together, you’re obviously going to want to look all the way around it and make sure the case is on tight. At that point, snap the bottom snap over to hold it closed, and you’re good to go!
To test it out, I submerged my Aowoto case in water with a glass of water on top of it, in my sink for 30 mins. When removing I glanced over to notice that there was absolutely no water in the case! Wow, Impressive for sure! Just let it be noted, if you go longer than 30 mins (which I did the first time, by a long way! Oops totally forgot about it), you’re going to find some water in it. But the fact that 30 minutes goes by and no water leaks in, is pretty amazing! And should really save your A$@ if you drop your phone in water!
Water can happen totally unexpectedly at times too. Take for instance the time I dropped my Iphone 5S into the toilet. Oops, not fun! I know lots of us have done this too, you have it in the back pocket of your jeans, totally forget it’s there, go to slip your pants down to go and PLOP! Yeah, that just happened, phone in the toilet! As if fishing it out wasn’t gross enough, I can’t even begin to think what leaked into my phone. But As gross as that is, I’m more worried about my phone working, right?!. So I hurry and dump it into a container of rice, which actually works surprisingly well. 24 hours later my phone was working fine, but you know what It’s like to go without your phone for that long? It felt like an eternity. My mom loves to use her phone to stay connected to all of us kids (there are 5 of us) I can’t imagine doing that to her, so I love the idea of helping her out with this awesome waterproof case. The case is pretty strong and durable too so that if you drop your phone a TON like I do (wether in water or not), it’s going to protect it MUCH better than those standard phone cases, allowing you get maybe even YEARS more out of your phone! I know, years?! The thought is hard to fathom right?
The phone buttons work quite well while using this case around your phone too. I could easily power on and off, turn down the volume, access my headphone jack, charging jack, etc. I could swipe through my phone easily too. The only problem I ran into was texting. It could be a bit hard to get some words out and took pressing some letters a few times to get it to register. So for me, being the avid texter, I will probably just use this case when I’m going to the lake for the weekend. But for my mom (who I actually found out voice-texted me when she sent me that first text back in January, something I don’t even do!) this is perfect for her!
It’s also snowproof, so if mom is an avid skier but loves to take her phone with her on the mountain, this is a great way to keep her phone safe and keep mom plugged in while enjoying the great outdoors!
Worried about losing your music with this waterproof phone case? You won’t, because it has enhanced re-engineered speaker ports to deliver maximum sound and clarity.
Speaking of sound, does your mom enjoy music?
Waterproof BlueTooth Speaker For the Best Listening Experience Even On or Near Water!
I can’t imagine life without music and actually listen to it every single day. I have speakers all over my house because I enjoy music while doing many activities during my day. I also love my music boating on the lakes too or when I’m out, lying out on the beach getting some sun. It was a no-brainer for me when I found this awesome Bluetooth speaker from Aowoto.
This awesome little portable speaker fits in the palm of your hand but delivers quite the amazing sound. I use it at home and find it feels an entire room no problem. The sound can actually go quite loud on this and yet you don’t lose clarity with it! And the base on it is downright mind blowing. Mom might not be into base so much, but that feature won ME over! Get your music-loving mom this awesome speaker she can take anywhere with her this summer so she is never without her music (or her books on tape if she’s into that, which my mom happens to be!) It has a handy clip on it, you can clip onto things like backpacks, purses and more, so you always have it there with you, within reach, and ready to go! Just be sure to give it a good charge before going to the beach for the day! You will get an incredible 8-12 hour playing time with one single charge!
