#4 UnbuckleMe Car Seat Buckle Release Tool

Moving to the suburbs means a lot more time in the car, and we found the perfect gadget for moms on the go. Mother-daughter duo Barb and Becca developed and launched UnbuckleMe after Barb, who has arthritis, struggled to unbuckle Becca’s daughter from her car seat. The tool, which was featured on Shark Tank, fits around the buckle and reduces the amount of force needed to release it by more than half. To top it off, the tool fits on car visors and can be put on a keychain for easy access. Say goodbye to broken nails and sore thumbs!

This rechargeable lantern from Barebones Living is the ideal gift for any mom gearing up for backyard bonfires and barbecues this summer. We couldn’t agree more with Barebones’ philosophy of sustainability and community, and this lantern makes it easy to take advantage of outdoor space. The handy carabiner top makes it easy to hang, and it has a sturdy base to allow it to rest on a flat surface as well. It’s also dimmable to create the perfect lighting for any activity, whether it’s grilling, making s’mores, or a nighttime game of tag.

Would you believe us if we told you there are $30 wireless earbuds with 5 hours of play time, interchangeable tip sizes for ideal fit, and excellent sound quality? We wouldn’t either, but these JLab earbuds are just that. The Go Air True Wireless Earbuds are equipped with MEMS microphones for great call quality and touch sensors to adjust the sound settings to your taste. We can’t recommend these enough for the mom — or anyone — who needs to upgrade her listening experience. As an added bonus, JLabs has a recycling program to ensure old earbuds or headphones are disposed of properly and their products come in eco-friendly recycled packaging.
