You only have one mom. So why not go a little crazy? These gifts will put a dent in your wallet, but mom will thank you for it. The Grace Digital Mondo Wi-Fi Music Player, $179, is the alarm clock revolutionized. Of course it connects to your favorite local radio stations, like CBS. But with the help of Wi-Fi, this device can also connect to mom’s favorite online stations, like Pandora or iHeartRadio. She can even wake up to them, and listen while eating the breakfast in bed you’ve prepared.

New moms probably won’t have the luxury of a leisurely meal. But the Withings Smart Baby Monitor, $229, will at least provide a little peace of mind. This handy device can connect to any Wi-Fi-enabled device for easy access to her precious little one. Mom will always have a front-row seat to see and even speak to her baby. And if that isn’t enough, this awesome gadget also lets her monitor the temperature and humidity of the baby’s surroundings, sending alerts if certain conditions aren’t met.

The PlanOn System Solutions ScanStik, $159.99, will get mom organized in a hurry. She can use it to copy a receipt, an important document or a page from a magazine… in seconds. Later, she can load all her scanned docs right to her computer. Say ‘goodbye’ to the big messy mom purse.
