Mum will smile politely when you give her the standard bottle of perfume, but to really light up her life on Mother's Day, get her something from our gift guides below to make the present more memorable.

Whether she most needs a new phone, camera, iPod dock to rock, or perhaps her first e-reader, our suggestions will get you on the road to choosing a great tech gift for mum.

PS — if she's a creative type, we've also collected free apps for knitters and crocheters, which you can download into her iPhone or iPad.
