Get The Right Gift For Every Type Of Mom With OWC

PR_KX_iPhone5CMom – she scooped you up when you tripped down the stairs (ahem…were pushed down by your brother), she climbed up the jungle gym into the scary tube slide to rescue you, and she even forgave you for that time you melted the good Tupperware in the dishwasher.

This Mother’s Day (reminder: It’s Sunday, May 11!) is your chance to show her how much you appreciate everything she does for you. It’s also a chance to make up for that paste and Popsicle stick sculpture you made for her last year (cute when you’re 7, not so much when you’re 27). Luckily for you, OWC has a gift that is perfect for every type of mom.

The Mom On The Go

Soccer, archery, ballet practice, grocery shopping…the “mom on the go” faces the daily risk of forgetting her phone was in her lap in the car, leaving it on a bench in the park, or dropping her iPad in horror as she realizes her children decided to use chocolate pudding to paint the walls.

Help this mobile mom with one of our NuGuard KX cases for the iPhone 4/4S, 5/5S, 5C, Samsung Galaxy S4, iPad mini or iPad Air. These cases are military drop tested and offer x-treme protection against accidental drops and children using your phone as a Frisbee, and come in a variety of colors to fit any mom. And for a complete 360 degrees of protection, give mom the NuGuard KXs Screen Armor!

The Clean-Happy Mom

“Put away your shoes! Scrub the walls! Fluff up those pillows, Grandma is coming over!” If this sounds familiar to you and/or makes you shudder, you might have the “Clean-Happy Mom.” Because this mom hates the presence of junk, we here at OWC suggest that her children gift her with a Power 2U to eliminate cord clutter (“What do all these chargers even go to?! I’m throwing them out if they don’t get cleaned up!”) or even a StoraDrive to safely organize and protect the household’s digital media.

Mother Nature

Ah, a mom after our own heart. This mom loves to help the environment and so does OWC! Help this mom add pure, cool light to her workspace with our NuGreen Flexible Neck LED Desk Lamp, which features up to 45,000 use hours. The bulbs are also recyclable as they contain no mercury. The environment and your mom will thank you.

The ‘Momarazzi’

Does your mom jump out of bushes to get action photos of you eating an ice cream cone? Does she take endless photos of the cat otg_ssdsleeping and then upload them all on her computer?  Does each soccer game have its own photo album? Then you might be in the presence of the “Momarazzi.” This mom loves to store pictures, so she could really use our Mercury On-The-Go Pro, designed for reliable and portable storage. The On-The-Go offers maximum storage in a quiet, impact-resistant enclosure that weighs less than 11 ounces so it won’t weigh her down on her picture-taking extravaganzas. And it’s now available with Thunderbolt!

No matter what kind of mom you have, OWC has the right gift to show her how much you care. You can also supplement this gift by finally picking up your socks and talking to that nice neighbor girl.
