This year Mother’s Day will occur on Sunday, May 13th, a date which is quickly approaching. So the task of finding a gift has begun. In this guide, I’ve put together some gift suggestions which includes some new products from Apple. Such as the new HomePod speaker, Apple Watch, iPad and more.
HomePod, Apple’s new wireless speaker has been designed for the home. It has Siri and Apple Music integrated meaning Mum will be able to play her favourite music, get the news and weather, listen to radio stations, and more – by simply using her voice.

Apple Watch is perhaps one of the most popular gift ideas this Mother’s Day. Mum can track her health and fitness, send messages, get notifications on her wrist, and of course, see the time and more.
Most importantly, Apple Watch bands are changeable, allowing Mum to change the style and look of her Apple Watch. Apple Watch is available in a 38mm and 42mm case size, however, according to Apple 38mm is usually better for females.

New iPad and Apple Pencil
The new 9.7-inch iPad was only recently announced by Apple. It is now much faster than before, can run all Apps from the App Store, and lots more. It is also the cheapest iPad in the iPad range.
But its biggest new addition? Support for Apple Pencil. It will allow mum to draw, sketch, illustrate, and do lots more with precision on the iPad. Apple Pencil is sold separately.
