CNET editors round up the hottest gadgets for Mom this year.
This Editors' Choice-winning bulb excelled in each one of our tests, and you can get it at a very reasonable price point. In our eyes, it's a best buy among BR30 LEDs.
While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.
With the Y50 Touch, Lenovo has created a reasonably priced, not-too-big gaming laptop that doesn't look like a throwback. But the most serious PC gamers may want to hold out for a better display and faster GPU.
The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight sets the standard for e-ink e-readers going forward and is well worth the extra money if you do a lot of nighttime reading.
If you're wondering which free streaming-audio service to pick from the ocean to be found at the App Store, iHeartRadio is a great way to break in to the genre, with several useful features not found in other apps.

While it doesn't offer much to distinguish itself from other Android tablets, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a decent 7-inch tablet at an affordable price.

The Barnes & Noble Nook HD's sharp screen and comfortable body make it an ideal tablet choice, especially for reading books, magazines and watching movies. Google Play now only adds to the allure.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
