THE MOMENT OF LIFT BY MELINDA GATES 

Lift mom up with Melinda Gates’ debut book, The Moment of Lift—How Empowering Women Changes the World, in which she shares lessons learned over her 20 years of philanthropic work and travel. Described as a timely and necessary call to action for women’s empowerment, the book includes alarming data shedding light on pertinent issues—such as the right to choose when to have children, equal access to employment opportunities and the elimination of gender bias—that continue to hinder women today. Gates also opens up about her personal life and the road to equity in her own marriage. 

Available at Indigo.ca for $34.99   

GOOGLE HOME MINI

Every mom needs a personal assistant, and what better than a virtual one that actually listens? The Google Home Mini, powered by Google Home Assistant, answers questions and acts as a hub for your smart home from any room. Now mom can manage her (and your) calendar, edit shopping lists, check weather or finance reports, track flights, even turn off lights using her voice, which, thanks to far-field voice recognition, can be heard from across the room! This gadget integrates easily with other smart-home devices such as Nest, IFTTT, Philips Hue lighting, Belkin and WeMo. Pick from three colours: coral, aqua, and charcoal.
