Give gadgets.

Mom always wants to talk. So how about the gift of gab: a new smartphone so you'll always be in touch. If she already has one, choose a cool case or phone accessory.

Other popular tech gifts on Yahoo include Samsung Galaxy tablets and Apple iPads. And the iPhone 5s and the Galaxy s5 are the must-have mobile phones according to Yahoo searches.

  

Shop for smartphones, tablets, and smartphone cases.

Searches on "Mother's Day ecards" rose 163 percent around this time last year. 

Search for e-greeting cards.

Searches were way, way up on "flowers", "rainbow roses", "Teleflora", "florist", "FTD", "1800Flowers", and "ProFlowers" on those last few days before Mother's Day last year.

    • Husband who hasn’t had sex in years asks, ‘Is this normal?’

      Hi, Carolyn: Should I be worried that my wife and I have had no sex for literally years? I am guessing it is at least three years. Not even heavy make-out sessions. It just seems that my wife has no interest. I am afraid to broach the subject for fear of a negative answer. We don’t sleep in the same bed anymore either. I am a big snorer and chose to sleep in the guest room. It’s fine because she is a light sleeper and I am happier that she is getting her sleep. I do use a CPAP but it does come off sometimes. The no-sex thing just happened over time. We have both gained some weight but we are not obese — we could both lose 20 or 30 pounds. Is this normal or should we seek help? J.: Should I be

    • ‘Catwoman’ accused of clawing and slashing designer boyfriend

      New York socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein has a face that’s been photographed hundreds of times — because after $4 million worth of plastic surgery, she looks like a cat. Now the woman known as “Catwoman” has a mugshot to add to that collection. Wildenstein, 76, was arrested early Wednesday at her Trump World Tower apartment for allegedly slashing her longtime designer boyfriend in the chest with scissors and pouring hot wax on his face during a brawl, according to The Daily Mail, which ran her mugshot on Thursday. Police say she also clawed Lloyd Klein in the face with her nails. The 49-year-old Klein reportedly shoved the so-called “Bride of Wildenstein” into a walk-in closet to stop the assault.

    • A teen fired up Facebook Live from the highway. Moments later, everyone in her car was dead.

      It would be the final question Brooke Miranda Hughes would hear before a tractor-trailer plowed into the back of her car as it crawled down Interstate 380 in Pennsylvania just after midnight Tuesday. Chaniya Morrison-Toomey, the passenger who posed the question, was referring to Facebook Live, which Hughes had just launched to broadcast live from her moving vehicle, according to the Scranton Times-Tribune. The final moments of their young lives — marked by a flash of lights, screeching tires and then seven minutes of blackness — were captured on the live-streamed video after Hughes, sitting behind the wheel, held her phone near her face for the rest of the world to see. Hughes, 18, and Morrison-Toomey, 19, were declared dead at the scene.

    • What to Know About Jocelyn Wildenstein

      The New York socialite, 71, is currently facing charges for allegedly attacking her 49-year-old boyfriend with scissors at her Trump World Tower Apartment in New York City. For one — and perhaps the most obvious to those unacquainted with Wildenstein’s personal life — there is her face, which has undergone so many plastic surgeries that it’s taken on a kind of feline quality, leading Wildenstein to be derided “Catwoman” in certain circles. Wildenstein’s surgery journey started with an eye lift during the first year she was married to Alec Wildenstein, a French-born, American-raised art dealer, racehorse owner and businessmen heir to a billion-dollar fortune.
