Mother's Day is arguably the most important holiday of the year. After all, none of us would be here without our moms.

To celebrate their awesomeness on Mother's Day, some moms would love to get a bouquet of flowers, other moms might prefer breakfast in bed, while others hope for the day (or five minutes) away from the kids. And then there are the moms who want some sort of cool tech gadget, plus you know, all those other things, too.

If you're buying for a tech-savvy mom, check out this list of gift ideas.

If there's one thing moms do best, it's talking about their kids and showing off their pictures. Nixplay's smart photo frames allow moms to show off pictures of their kids to anyone who wants to look. There are several frames to choose from — ranging in size and resolution. The frame displays photos as a slideshow, and it can be turned on by motion and light sensors.

For the mom who's tired of smelling her family.
