Sunday, May 13th, 2018, is Mother's Day - and if you read this post, then you are sure to be looking for the right gift idea;) How about the digital Nixplay picture frame, which is linked to your mom's WiFi on cloud services like Dropbox, Google Photos and Flickr as well as Instagram, Picasa, Facebook and the Nixplay server? The digital picture frame can also be loaded with pictures via SD card or SDHC memory card as well as via USB. In the following I have put together further details and dates for the present for Mother’s Day 2018.

Gift idea for Mother's Day 2018

A digital picture frame like the one from Nixplay is ideal if you want to give your mother a present on her special day that reminds of the time together, of the entire family, of the last vacation and of beautiful experiences of the past life. A photo album has a similar function, but you would need a fairly large wall to show all of the photos. It is better to display old, new and future photos digitally on a beautiful, illuminated display. So if you're still looking for an idea for the perfect Mother's Day 2018 gift, you've found it.

Send photos on the go

Are you often out and about, do you live in a different area or country or are you going on a world tour soon? Then the digital picture frames from Nixplay with WLAN and cloud connection are ideal for sending your mother updates from time to time and letting them know where you are, what you are currently seeing and how you are. JPEG or JPG content can be sent, playlists can be created and more via the cloud, the Nixplay app and the web app. In addition, you can make the settings for the operating time or the motion sensor.

Nixplay picture frames with 15 or 18,5 inches

The digital picture frame from Nixplay can be ordered in two different sizes and formats. The digital picture frames have a 15 inch (38,1 cm) screen diagonal for 4: 3 pictures and one 18,5 inch (47 cm) diagonal display for 16: 9 photos. The latter is ideal if you mainly want to display smartphone photos, which are usually shot in a more modern format. I also think the cloud support from Dropbox, Google Photos and Co. is good, as you can send your mom new photos of you and your family over and over again without her having to put them on the display herself (which for many parents sure does takes a long time or goes wrong: D).
