Do you ever wonder what to get your mom for Mother’s Day? It’s so hard to find the right thing for the woman that works so hard all year long. Do you get her something useful like a bathrobe, or jewelry? It really is a difficult decision! I have two amazing items here that will make the best Mother’s Day gift ever!

Harman Kardon Allure

The Harman Kardon Allure ($249.99) is an amazing speaker! It is powered by Amazon Alexa, which makes it even more fun to use. This is gorgeous and can sit anywhere and still look stylish. It has amazing sound quality, and it super easy to set up and use. When I got this in, we set it up right away and it took less than 5 minutes. That is the kind of gift that mom wants! Easy to set up and fun to use! It lights up, and has 360° sound! How awesome is that?!?!?!

Yes, it is a little more expensive than your average Mother’s Day gift, but you get what you pay for! You are getting amazing quality and long lasting sound. You can stream your music from your mobile device, such as phone or tablet, right to the speaker. For me, this is convenience! I love that. There is nothing like turning on the music and jamming while working around the house.

About Harma Kardon Allure

Harman Kardon Allure is a voice-activated speaker powered by Amazon Alexa Voice Service in a beautifully crafted design. Thanks to the built-in 4-microphone array, far-field voice recognition enables Allure to hear you from across the room. Dual band Wi-Fi connects to Alexa Voice Service, just ask and Alexa can answer questions, play music, place an order, control your smart home, and more. Its 360-degree sound fills up the room while the bass that you love thunders out from the built-in subwoofer. The 360-degree and responsive lighting animates the semi-transparent body provides a stunning design element to your home. You can also stream your favorite music from your mobile device via Bluetooth.

Frequency response40Hz – 20kHz

JBL Soundgear

Now, this is just spiffy! The JBL Soundgear ($179.99) is perfect for mom! It lets her do her thing while listening to music, or hands free calling. It fits comfortably around the neck, and believe me, it is comfortable. I tried it on myself, and while I was skeptical, I was quickly shown the error of my ways..haha! It sits very nicely around the neck, without feeling weighted down or bulky. I like that you can use it for hands free calls, because this means you can do whatever you want without holding a phone in your hands. I can be outside gardening and talking on the phone with this!

You get a good, 6 hour battery life, so you don’t have to charge it up every 30 minutes. Take this with you on walks, or to the park, or my personal favorite, on a bike ride! But, don’t stop there! You can use it as your personal sound system when watching movies and such! The JBL Soundgear is also nice when doing VR gaming, because you can have your ears uncovered while doing it, so you are able to hear others around you.  To me, this would be an amazing thing to wear while laying down relaxing. Think about it: laying down on your nice, comfy bed, relaxing melodies (rain forest, etc.) playing on the Soundgear, with a lovely eye mask on. Yes, that sounds like heaven to me! Get mom a JBL Soundgear for Mother’s Day. Don’t ask why, just do it!
