Last-minute Mom's day Nano gift set and giveaway
It's too late even for an overnight delivery to reach your mom by Mother's Day on Sunday, but should you give up? Definitely not. And why do the usual flowers and flowery card? I think most mothers would appreciate a tech toy. Even my mother, who hates computers and has to have emails printed out for her to read recently asked me with interest if I had managed to score a Nintendo Wii (no, no, no, but I will). Digital cameras, a Tivo, a plasma tv - all good choices.
One easy way to get a complete gift (gadget+card+candy, pre-gift-wrapped) is the iPod Nano chocolate gift set, which includes a 4GB super-sleek Nano in silver or pink, in a cute gift box filled with pink and silver wrapped chocolate meltaways. I use the video iPod myself, so every time I see a Nano, I'm blown away each time by how tiny, thin, and almost weightless it is. It weighs just over an ounce, but it can hold 1000 songs or 25,000 photos. If you were a good child, you could even fill the Nano with your mom's favorite CDs and some family photos. No video on the Nano, but the screen is so small, that's a good thing, unless you want your mother to go blind. Also tucked in the box is a 10% off coupon from Best Buy - so you can encourage further gadget frenzy.
The Nano gift set is exclusively at Best Buy, and is available in-store only, for $205. We're giving one silver Nano set away on Mother's Day, courtesy of Best Buy, and you can either make it an extra-special belated gift for your mom or be greedy and keep it for yourself (if your conscience will let you- this is, after all, intended for the one who gave you life, but the Nano is the most beautiful iPod yet). To enter, you have to be a subscriber to our Popgadget email list. So if you're not already, subscribe to the list, and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, "Mother's Day Nano Giveaway" and give us all your details (name, mailing address) and tell us why your mom needs a Nano. Is she still listening to 8-track? Carrying around crates of vinyl plus a Crosby turntable when she goes on vacation? Let us know and the best story gets the gift set.
