But when it is time to find their phones, it becomes baffling for them. An automatic handbag illuminator can make these searches much smoother. It works by automatically turning on the light whenever the handbag is open. It lights up the inside of the bag and remains illuminated for a few seconds, so you can find your mobile phone or keys inside the bag. It automatically turns off after a few seconds. This handy device can range from Tk. 2,000 to around Tk. 5,000 in general.

Since moms juggle millions of things at a time such as kids, groceries and looking for their keys while entering the house, a smart fingerprint lock can prove to be a useful alternative to traditional locks. With a smart lock, the key is always in your hand - you just need to register your fingerprint in the system. It also ensures security for your home and is a cheaper alternative to smart fingerprint door locks. Price starts from Tk. 1,000 for such padlocks and may rise to Tk. 5,000 depending on the brand and quality.
The Tile Bluetooth trackers may be a strange but useful gift for a mother. Moms can use this device to find out their keys, bags, wallet or any misplaced items.

Basic Bluetooth trackers can cost from Tk. 3,000 to Tk. 5,500, but with advanced features, they may cost more.
For moms who sometimes have sore feet or shoulders, a good massage can provide much-needed relief. If they have a portable muscle massager, they do not have to worry about a massage appointment or any other additional preparations.

Such massagers offer a quiet and soothing experience to the users and are perfect for daily body rubs and soothing aching joints. Prices start from Tk. 1,500 and they may rise as high as above Tk. 10,000 depending on brand and functionalities.
