Joule: Sous Vide by ChefSteps



Joule Sous Vide kitchen iOS



For the Iron Chef on your shopping list, the Joule: Sous Vide combines technology with home cooking to create five-star dishes. The smart kitchen appliance is extremely versatile and can be used to prepare everything from flaky halibut to decadent creme brulee. Using the Joule app for iOS or Android, simply select the desired cooking temperature and time (Joule offers users a variety of recipes, but a quick search can yield dozens more), seal the ingredients in a bag (a Ziploc will work, but a FoodSaver makes the process incredibly easy), and let the Joule keep the water bath at the perfect temp during the entire cooking process. Retailing for $199.00, this slim device, which can be stored in a drawer, has become one of my favorite kitchen appliances thanks to the magnetic base and fast heating capability. So far, I haven't had any connection issues with the device using my iPhone 6s Plus, so the lack of a physical display on the unit hasn't been a problem.

IQ Smart Wireless Nutrition Scale by KitchenIQ



Kitchen IQ Smart Wireless Nutriscale



To keep Mom healthy, the KitchenIQ Wireless Nutriscale offers an abundance of features for under $60. Capable of weighing ingredients up to 11 pounds, the IQ Smart Wireless Nutrition Scale can be used with the corresponding KitchenIQ Food App (compatible with iOS 7.0 or later) to count calories, carbs, sodium and more. It's also great for weighing ingredients when baking to ensure accuracy.

Sensoria Fitness running gear with iOS app



Sensoria Fitness iOS socks anklet sports bra



For the fitness fan on your shopping list, Sensoria's fitness socks and anklet, which retail for $199, offer advanced features, such as coaching advice and cadence detection. Paired with Senoria's heart rate monitoring garments, the running system can alert users when it detects a heart rate in the danger zone. The app can also measure distance and speed with the option to unlock paid training programs (From Couch to 5K is coming soon, for example). Owners can also share data with Apple's Health app to track progress and overall trends. After using the system, I found it to be motivating and an asset to my fitness regimen.

iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED



red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus



Looking for the ultimate gift for Mom this year? Apple's Special Edition iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED is sure to please —not only is the red striking visually, but a portion of every (RED) purchase goes to the Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS. Top Rated Plus eBay sellers have the devices for $20 to $30 off MSRP.
