Mother's Day 2014: Techie gifts for Mom

Do you know of a mother who is constantly worrying about her child? How about one that doesn't have enough time to relax or pamper herself after a long day of work?

Whether you're shopping for a first-time mom or a grandmother of five, CNET's Sumi Das has found some pretty unique, high-tech Mother's Day gifts.

The $200 Mimo baby monitor includes a small device called a Turtle, which attaches to an infant onesie, allowing you to monitor your baby's breathing, body position and skin temperature. The information is sent via a so-called Lilypad docking station to your smartphone, allowing you to check on the baby from afar.

Another way to help mom get a good night's sleep are the Sleep Phones. Moms can listen to smoothing sounds and music, night or day, on these comfy $100 wireless Bluetooth headphones.

The Mophie Space Pack for the iPhone 5 and 5s boosts not only battery life but storage as well, so you have plenty of space for adorable toddler photos and videos. The 16GB model runs $150.

Watch those cute clips on your TV using the $50 Roku streaming stick. Plug this device into the HDMI port on your television to stream music, Netflix movies and more right from your mobile device.

And since Mom's job is truly never done, why not wish her Happy Mother's Day year-round with a delivery box subscription.

With Julep, the nail salon comes to you for about $20 a month. Inside each box are two trendy polishes -- plus another beauty goodie.

For the mom who never has time to shop, there's Stitch Fix. Every month, a box with five clothing items or accessories -- hand-picked by your own personal stylist -- arrives by mail. Hold on to the ones you like and return any you don't in the prepaid envelope.
