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

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.
