When thinking about Mother’s Day gift ideas to celebrate that most special day, many people stick to an early afternoon brunch or breakfast in bed. But the mum in your life may want something that lasts beyond Mothering Sunday. This year, consider skipping the usual flowers and chocolates, and get the mother in your life something that plays for much longer with the help of this Mother’s Day gift guide.
Whether your mum is looking for the perfect headphones for her daily workouts at the gym, a speaker system to elevate movie night at home or even state-of-the-art technology to help her improve her sleep, the Bose Mother’s Day gift guide offers mum-friendly products designed to make not only her day, but her whole year.
There are a lot of Bluetooth speakers on the market, but none as convenient as the SoundLink Flex Bluetooth speaker. Its lightweight and rugged casing, designed to withstand wear and tear from water to dust, means it travels well. In fact, in addition to being waterproof, it can actually float, making it the perfect speaker to bring with the family or solo for a day at the pool or beach. And the powder coating is resistant to rust corrosion and UV light, which keeps the speaker pumping out tunes at peak performance, no matter the conditions.
Plus, unlike some of its competitors, the SoundLink Flex is equipped with more than 12 hours of battery life, which means you won’t need to worry about your speaker dying just as you’re getting started. The PositionIQ technology also optimises sound according to the speaker’s position. At larger gatherings, the sound quality of the SoundLink Flex can get an extra boost when paired with another SoundLink Flex or other SimpleSync™-enabled Bose speakers.
Mums will love these adaptable beauties equipped with Bose’s Active Noise Cancelling technology, which utilises microphones inside and outside of the earcups to monitor surrounding noise and create an opposite signal to negate it. The technology is adjustable, which means she can control the amount of noise she wants to remove, whether she’s going for a run, browsing the supermarket aisles or listening to a sound bath in the comfort of her home.
When your mum needs to take a break from zoning out to pick up a phone call, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are engineered to create the crispest sound, regardless of the environment. The touch controls on the right earcup make it easy to manage music, noise cancelling levels, volume and phone calls, all without having to touch the phone. Think of these as the perfect accompaniment for the mum on the go, ready to transition from the road to the office to her favourite coffee shop, all at the touch of a button.
If you’re looking for a potential game changer, give the mum in your life Sleepbuds™ II. With jam-packed days at work followed by hours of shuttling kids to activities and keeping the household running, it’s no surprise that mothers can find it particularly difficult to unwind at the end of the day and fall asleep. Here’s where Bose Sleepbuds™ II can step in and provide support.
Sleepbuds™ II are different from your average earbuds, as they’re designed for comfortable slumber, starting with soft, silicone eartips that help block noise and stay put all night. But that’s not all they do. Through the Bose Sleep app, mum can access a robust library of more than 50 natural and white noise sounds to mask noise and boost relaxation. You can even customise the Sleepbuds™ II settings so that the selected Bose Sleep app sounds turn on at a given time. One can even serve as your morning alarm, easing you into the day.
Trips to the cinema may be less frequent than they were a few years ago, but the Bose Smart Soundbar 900 brings some of the cinematic thrills into your living room. Designed with Dolby Atmos®, the Smart Soundbar 900 elevates your listening experience by creating a 360-degree, all-encompassing soundscape. With proprietary PhaseGuide technology, you’ll think sound is coming from every corner of the room, not just directly from the front of the speakers.
Mums will especially appreciate the Smart Soundbar 900 for its state-of-the-art Alexa and Google Assistant capabilities. With these, she can manage her day, order food and other household essentials, make a to-do-list, play her favourite music and relax with her favourite shows. In fact, your mum may quickly come to think of the Smart Soundbar 900 as one more set of helping hands to take pressure off her busy schedule.
Mums who keep their energy and stamina up will find a partner in Bose Sport Earbuds. These buds were crafted with precise audio capabilities to motivate her workout and get her into the zone with the crispest audio quality. The buds’ signature volume-optimised active EQ automatically boosts the lows and highs to maintain the right audio balance of music, videos and voices.
Your mum will never have to worry about losing an earbud while she’s working up a sweat, thanks to the buds’ soft, silicone StayHear Max tips, which create a taut seal to the ear canal and come in three sizes. Not only does this improve the audio quality for the listener, but it also ensures that the precious few minutes allotted for exercise aren’t disrupted by having to adjust an earbud. With five hours of battery life per charge, listeners will never have to worry about running out of juice while they’re on the go.
Bose’s revolutionary Soprano Frames combine a sleek and elegant design with sharp audio capabilities, making them a perfect gift for mothers who love to combine style with function. Bose’s OpenAudio™ technology allows wearers to sport their chic sunglasses and discreetly listen to music at the same time, giving users the opportunity to rock out to their favourite jams or unwind with a podcast on the go.
The Soprano Frames’ classic design complements an array of face shapes, making them a safe bet, even for a mum with a unique personal style. And they even allow users to take calls on the go, with an advanced microphone system that focuses on one’s voice and reduces background noise. Now the multitaskers in your life can continue to balance it all, inconspicuously and with style.
