6 Apps to Help Make Mother’s Day Memorable
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and that means it’s your day to shine, and indulge in the little things in life that make you happy. Mobile apps can help you to celebrate just that. Whether you have a whole day already planned or you’ve been too busy to even think about the upcoming holiday, this post will help you find exciting gift ideas to treat yourself and capitalize on quality time with your kids.
So before your company arrives or another item gets added to your “To Do” list, we insist that you grab your smartphone or tablet, sit back and put your feet up. Because “Me” time is mandatory, especially for Moms. And you’re just a couple “download” clicks away from exploring a variety of apps recommended to make you smile.
There is a little something for every Mom in our Mother’s Day app list below. Feel free to spend May 8th testing out some or all of these fun ideas (many of which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your couch)!
Today’s your day, Mom! The Stylish Girl app will equip you with a personal style assistant to bring out your inner fashionista (or simply just maintain your trendsetting status)! By taking pictures of your wardrobe and uploading them onto your phone, you’ll be able to create your own virtual closet in minutes! The app will mix and match your outfits (and let you preview them) to ensure that you show up to work – or to your next get-together with friends – looking fresh. Running behind to make it home and get ready for a big work event? No need to panic! You’ll be able to browse through your closet on-the-go (from whenever you are) and choose your outfit before you arrive home. From experience, those extra minutes that you would’ve spent wandering through your closet and debating what to wear make the world of a difference when time is limited!
Is it safe to say that cards and pictures will always melt your heart, but sometimes you crave nothing more than spending quality time with your kids? And do you also love nothing more than unwinding from the day with a quick, yet challenging brain-game? This is where Word Chums Free comes in! Relax with your kids but don’t hesitate to challenge them to a match! If you play with them for long enough, you’ll likely be ready to compete against (and win) battles against your online friends, random opponents, or the computer “Chumbots”. This app is the perfect gift for the competitive Mom, if you ask me!
No time to make it to the gym? No excuse (anymore!) Sworkit Lite is essentially a personal trainer at your fingertips, and on your schedule. Choose between strength training or yoga stretching workouts and get ready to sweat! The app offers anything from a quick 5-minute workout to a lengthy, high-intensity cardio session. So, if you’re rushing to carpool the kids to their next activity or get stuck on a call with your best friend, fitting a workout into your schedule is still possible. And, if you’re like me and need detailed instruction to keep up, Sworkit guides you through each move with illustrations and a timer. Get ready to feel productive no matter what your day has in store.
Mother’s Day is a day for both nostalgia and for creating new memories. Turn your favourite hobby of begging your kids to pose for yet another family photo into a fun personal project. With the Pic Collage app – a virtual collage creator – you can become a part of the up and coming digital scrapbooking trend by combing photos, Youtube videos, funky fonts, sassy stickers and cute cut-outs. If you’re already a self-proclaimed scrapbooking pro, this app will allow you to ditch your messy glue sticks and instead create top-quality photo layouts, and in far less time! The best part is that the photos can be beautifully edited within the app and the final collage can be shared with others online or printed as greeting cards. This will allow you (and every Mom out there) to do what you do best: proudly show off your kids to your friends!
Do you live to cook up creative meals in the kitchen? Or would you rather never have to think about what to make for dinner? No matter which option you sway closer to, plan a cooking session for your family and chances are they’ll want this to become a regular date! With the Big Oven app, you can browse through the over 350, 000 recipes and choose a special dish to prepare together. The app can also become a kitchen staple to help you create and manage your own recipes, or find inspiration using ingredients already on hand. It’s time to clear the cookbooks, Mom – cooking just got cool again!
This Mother’s Day, we hope that your kids will pause and thank you for everything that you’ve done for them (both big and small). Until then, using apps to make you smile and feel revitalized is app-solutely encouraged.
