Mother's Day will arrive next month, but it's never too early to appreciate that special woman who brought you into this world and/or devoted many years of her life to raising you. Many will be happy to receive nice flowers, a thoughtful card, or some article of clothing - but for that tech-savvy, Nexus-toting mom out there, the Play Store is here to help. Google has kicked off a Mother's Day promotion that will last until May 5th, offering up an entire year's subscription to certain magazines for just $5 and 50% off a good number of books (unfortunately, since there's no gifting functionality built into Google Play, you will have to buy these things under her account somehow).





Just think carefully before gifting your mom a subscription to a fitness magazine.

On the positive side, you don't need to be a mom to enjoy any of these items. If you see something on the list you've been raring to read, have at it. There's plenty to go around for mothers and their children alike.

      In fairness mother's day in the UK was 30th of March

        In fairness we already got this sale last month. I'm pretty sure two Mother's Day sale in less than a month would be overkill.

    How does one gift something from playstore? I get how you can offer a Nexus 7 but not digital subscription

      Technically, you can't. You either have to get your hands on her account or give her a gift card and a point in the right direction.

      I'll note this in the post.

    Books and Magazines - because moms don't watch movies, TV shows, listen to music or play games.

    Meanwhile.. in the UK.

    Apparently, you should also reconsider getting a Gwyneth Paltrow book, as moms tend to hate her for her better-than-thou vibe in articles and interviews.

    Only for American moms, f*** you foreigners!
