5 Ways to Make Your Mom Feel Loved “Wirelessly” This Mother’s Day

From devices and accessories as gifts to fun ways to communicate.

It’s almost Mother’s Day and whether you’re with her on that special day or not, here are a couple ways to make her smile “wirelessly.”

Get mom a smartphone:
Does your mom still have that old clamshell phone? Upgrade her device. Pick up a new smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S 5 with a 5.1-inch HD display, so she’ll never complain about not being able to see who is calling. And make sure to personalize it with a case in her favorite color.

Attend a Wireless Workshop class together:
After your mom is set up with her new mobile phone, she might need someone to show her how to use it. Spend some quality one-on-one time by attending a Wireless Workshop together. They’re taught by Verizon Wireless experts who can show mom how to use the phone’s powerful features (or even just how to send a text). The best part about this gift is that the workshops are free.

Call home with Skype:
Don’t just text your mom on Mother’s Day. Instead, take it a step further and video chat with her on Skype.

Send mom a selfie:
Moms appreciate pictures from their kids. If you can’t be there in person, sending her a photo of yourself is a great way to show your love on Mother’s Day. Then ask her to send a selfie to you.

Get mom a Fitbit:
Now that spring is here, pick up the new FitBit Flex so she can keep track of every step she takes, track calories burned and monitor how well she sleeps … all on her wrist and smartphone.
