You mother will always love you, but she'll love you more if you get her one of these goodies.

1. StickNFind

StickNFind wants to make sure you never loose your things again. You simply attach the tracker to your belongings and the app locates where they are. The app also notifies you when a tracker goes out of range, making sure you never leave something behind. The tracker even uses the StickNFind community to let people find other people's belongings. Essentially, a user-sourced manhunt.  


2. Nespresso Magimix U with Aeroccino

3. The Smart Herb Garden

This nifty device lets you grow plants without any gardening knowledge. Just buy some of their 'cartridges' (the stock are basil, thyme and lemon balm) and put them in the main holder.
