Mothers Day will be here before we know it and one of the hardest things for me is finding a gift for my own mom. My mom is one who is a very simple woman. She loves jewelry, but she is particular when it comes to jewelry and she has quite a bit of it and it is hard to find something that she would like that does not look very similar to another piece that she already has. She likes art, but only certain kinds of art and when it comes to displaying art, well, there is only so many places a person can display art in their lifetime. I can go with clothes, but she is picky, a belt, but again, she is picky same with shoes and purses, so I have to think practicality nowadays with her, and what will she actually use. Well, while I was wracking my brain on what the heck I was going to get my mom this year for Mothers Day, aside from gift cards, I was asked to review this neat home phone system from VTech. I went in and checked it out, and after I looked at all of the specs on this phone, it dawned on me, this pair of phones would be the perfect Mothers Day present for my mom. This is not just a home phone system, it is a system that they can use for their home phone and for her cell phone so that they can get a clear and clean calls using BLUETOOTH technology on their landline. My parents live in the mountains, and even though they do have cell phone reception where they live, there are parts in their house where the reception is not all that great. One of the features that really stood out for me was the one that said, Eliminate cell phone dead spots at home. That is one thing that they do have a lot of issues with, my mom can be talking to me on her cell and walk into the other room and drop the call, she will continue talking to me and I end up having to call her on the home phone with her not even being aware that the call had been lost. I am sure that if she is on a call that is important or with someone that she is needing to talk to, that can be an issue, so having a phone system like this in their home will really make life at my parents house a lot easier! I like that not only will it be easy to make calls from her cell and such, but also, she will not have to run from one room to the other because she left her cell in there to answer it, she can answer it using the home phone, which will make things easier on both of my parents. My dad is not big on using cell phones, but I know that if there is something out there that will make things easier on my mom, then my dad will enjoy having it around as well. So this Mothers Day, if you are like me and have no idea on what to get the mom in your life that does not want anything or is very difficult to shop for, then get her something that will make life at home easier on her, get her the VTech 2 Handset Connect to Cell Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting!
