May 6th, 2016 by Ryan Sundling

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you haven’t already picked up something special for Mom, the team here at SkyVue’s Pittsburgh pa apartments has you covered. We already know you’re short on time to find a memorable gift, but what if you’re short on cash, too? We’ve got you! It’s all thanks to a recent post titled The Best Mother’s Day Gifts $100 Or Less on on super stylish lifestyle site, Refinery 29. Best of all, most of these tech-centric gift options are available at major retailers conveniently close to your SkyVue apartments in Pittsburgh pa.

But before we get into gifting mode, let’s reflect a bit on the reason for this gift-giving season. Surrounded by prestigious universities like Carnegie Mellon, Pitt, and Carlow University, we like to consider ourselves the most academic apartments for rent in Pittsburgh pa. So we thought you’d like to know that Mother’s Day was first celebrated in Grafton, West Virginia, just over 100 miles from our SkyVue’s Pittsburgh pa residences. According to Wikipedia in 1908, Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother, Ann Jarvis, a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War and devoted her life to addressing public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her Mom setting aside a day to honor all mothers. As she put it, Mom is “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” By 1911, all US states observed the holiday. And in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson designated Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May as a national holiday to honor Moms.

Now, 102 years later, it’s time to do something nice for that “person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” Refinery 29 points out that “today’s Mom, perhaps more than ever, is busy, practical, and technologically savvy.” So rather than flowers or chocolates, they recommend thinking outside the box and indulging Mom with some useful new tech. “For $100 or less, there are plenty of products and accessories that are perfect for gifting and are every bit as practical as they are fun.”

Here are our top 3 Mother’s Day gift Ideas from the most Mom-loving apartments for rent in Pittsburgh pa:

1. GiftagramIf you procrastinate on buying your Mom a gift:
Giftagram makes sending a gift so much easier for you. Choose from the app’s selection of gifts (which start at just $15) and select your recipient from your phonebook or Facebook contacts. Your Mom will get a text asking for the best address to send the gift to (work, home, vacation house), and will know that her present is on its way (gifts arrive in three to five days). Giftagram is available on the App Store and on Google Play.

2. Mophie Power Reserve – If your mom’s phone battery is constantly low:
You needed your Mom to text you back, but she couldn’t, since her phone died. Sound familiar? Mophie’s Power Reserve is super light, small enough to fit in a purse, and provides a full charge. Mophie Power Reserve 1X costs just $35 and is available on

3. Drop KitchenIf your mom loves to cook:
The Drop kitchen scale connects to an app full of recipes for drinks and food. The best part of using it is that it doesn’t matter if you have too little of an ingredient: Drop measures what you put down and makes the necessary recipe changes (or suggests a substitute). Think of it as a not-so-subtle way to hint that you want Mom to make you chocolate chip cookies. Drop Kitchen Connected Scale costs $100 and is available on
