Mother's Day is just around the corner (for those who may have forgotten -- it's this Sunday, the 13th) and I'm sure some of you are wondering what to get your wonderful BlackBerry toting, tech-loving mother or spouse.
Flowers, candy and spa trips are nice, but other CrackBerry moms like me would also love something new for our most loved
addiction accessory. Here's a list of a few great gift ideas for that one remarkable woman who will always love you no matter how many slushies you spill in her car. I decided to break the ideas into several "mom type" categories just to make finding the right gift even easier. Keep reading for our full list of tech gifts for mom!

A shiny new BlackBerry device is always a great way to start off Mother's Day.

These gifts are perfect for the mom who is always stepping out in the latest styles. Why not get her a couple so she can match them to her shoes and handbag!
No matter which BlackBerry device your mom is rocking, Incipio has a case for it! A variety of colors, smooth finish and durability are just some of the resons why CrackBerry readers love incipio cases and your mom will too!
Jawbone Era Headset
Jawbone headsets are some of the top selling bluetooth devices out there. The Era is one of their most comfortable to wear and has superior noise cancellation software. With three different color/pattern choices, one is perfect for mom.
Make sure your trendsetting mom has a great looking pouch to keep her BlackBerry protected when she tosses it in her latest fashion handbag. From side, top or pocket pouches, you'll find one to suit any woman's style.
Trendstop Fashion TrendTracker
This is the app for any fashion trend watching mom. Take a peek at daily fashion news and trends with over 500 catwalk show photo galleries. Mom can even submit her own fashion trend photos.
These accessories and apps will help mom keep her household running smoothly.
Free up mom's hands with one of these great cradles. Whether she is cooking or cleaning, mom can dock her BlackBerry and charge it while streaming music or even viewing her online cooking sites.
Mom will never have to worry about what to cook for dinner with this great app by Loblaws Inc. Recipe Box for the Blackberry PlayBook has over 700 recipes that you can tag, add notes and the NEW shopping list feature.
We all know mom likes everything to be spic and span so why should her BlackBerry treated any differently. Check out ShopCrackBerry.com's selection of microfiber cloths, cleaning solutions and screen protectors.
For the moms who are always on the go, give them a couple of these great ideas so she can arrive safely and on time.
Make sure mom never has to worry about her battery dying with a charger to use in her car. If mom is a multiple device user, make sure to check out the car chargers with the extra USB slot.
With a car kit, mom's BlackBerry is now the perfect GPS or video player. With dashboard, air vents, headrest or window mounts for practically every model of BlackBerry, mom can use her device for directions or play a movie to distract the little ones in the back seat.
Vlingo - Virtual Assistant
Vlingo is an all in one personal assistant for mom. She can easily speak her messages while driving and Vlingo will type for her. Mom can even use it to search for local directions or update Facebook. For a limited time all plus/paid features are being offered for FREE!
This Mom's Favorites
Like me, some moms have a full or part time job, play taxi, daycare provider, nurse , chef and laundress all while trying to maintain their sanity. These are just a few apps that I couldn't possibly live without.
The very first app I suggest to anyone is Mobile Checkbook by Mobatech. With this app, mom can manage the household finances quickly and easily. Mobile Checkbook offers a Backup/Restore function as well as an easy export option so mom always has the latest figures.
BeWeather (formerly known as BerryWeather)
This is another app that I don't think I could go without. BeWeather is on mine as well as my two oldest children's BlackBerrys. This way we can all easily see what the weather will be like and plan accordingly. Right now, courtesy of BlackBerry, you can get the full version of BeWeather for FREE!
Key Ring Reward Cards
And for the mom's reading this post, if you see something you really like and just don't think your kiddos or husband will figure it out, treat yourself. Go ahead and get exactly what you want. You deserve it for all your hard work!
