Make use of smart home appliances to create a memorable day for Mom
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to get creative and start thinking about gift ideas and fun activities to show mom how loved and appreciated she is. And while one day a year is not enough to properly celebrate our mothers, it is the perfect opportunity to do something special for a very special person.
A great option, and possibly one that isn’t often considered, are smart home appliances or AI-equipped devices as an ideal present for mom’s big day, offering a unique way to show how much you care while making life easier for her at the same time.
A perfect afternoon to herself
Everyone needs some alone time, and that includes mom! Give her a peaceful afternoon to enjoy her hobbies, whether it be practising yoga or watching a movie.
Smart TVs, like LG’s latest AI-infused models, can quickly find a selection of yoga-instructional videos for mom to choose from and follow or recommend movies based on her favourite actors or genres. LG TVs can further enhance the viewing experience by sensing ambient light levels and automatically adjusting brightness for the best contrast and colours any time of day or night.
If outdoors is more to your mom’s liking, create a garden oasis complete with a comfortable garden lounger and cosy blanket and pillow. Then, set her up with a G8X ThinQ Smartphone, so she can read her favourite book and listen to her favourite music at the same time on the detachable screen.
A thoughtful gift that is also practical
Gifts, while not everything, can be a nice way to express your heartfelt gratitude to mom. Something she can both enjoy and make practical use of will always be well received. You might be thinking about an item she’s long wanted for a favourite hobby. Alternatively, a present that can help her start a brand-new one.
For the avid reader, an Amazon Kindle is a great choice. While those interested in wellness may love a Fitbit – both of which, are available on Takealot.com. A Spotify Premium subscription could be just the gift for a mom who loves listening to music.
Another option and perfect way for moms and daughters to bond is a smart speaker like the LG XBOOM. It serves high-end audio (great for Spotify playlists and podcasts). The karaoke feature includes built-in sound-enhancing voice filters to make any singer sound even more like a star. It even changes the key of the song to better suit the voice of the singer.
Tidy the home for an ideal day
Get the chores done and out of the way, so the house is in perfect shape for a celebration. To conquer all of the tasks that need doing quickly, and with confidence, an app like the LG ThinQ App for smartphones can be a big help.
Connect wirelessly with LG’s smart appliances; the app lets you get the washing going and get last night’s dishes clean. The app is also useful for staying on top of household inventory, keeping track of and reordering key supplies like washing powder.
Speaking of washing, smart washing machines like LG’s washer with AI Direct Drive can automatically discern the softness of garments and select the optimal cycle for each load to prevent fabric damage, so you don’t accidentally ruin mom’s favourite shirt.
Treat her to a lovely dinner at home
Want to surprise mom with a perfect home-cooked meal but are worried your culinary skills aren’t up to scratch? Anyone can become a chef with LG’s easy-to-use Smart Inverter NeoChef microwave for precise and more even cooking. Plus, you can use to it make your own biltong – earning you some extra brownie points!
Three words, eight letters
Last but certainly not least, here’s the simplest, quickest and most important thing you can do! It can be slightly embarrassing if not difficult to actually voice our feelings and appreciation, but simply saying those three special words is one of the most heartfelt ways to express your love and gratitude for mom.
