CHICAGO, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Yes, it's that time - time to think quickly and act even quicker to get your mother a gift that says how much you love and adore her and appreciate all the things she's done for you over the years. You could get flowers, but that's a bit blah. You could get chocolates, but she's getting older and complains it is hard to stay at a healthy weight. You want to get her something she will use, but obviously you know better than to get anything related to housework!
So, you want something pretty and enjoyable that she will actually use. If your mom is a smoker, what about an electronic cigarette?
Yes, you read that right. An e-cig. Let's be clear about what this device isn't. It is not a regular tobacco cigarette. It's an electronic device that allows the user to inhale vapor instead of smoke.
"And it is not a treatment to stop smoking, although many people have found that starting e-cigarettes made it much easier for them to quit the traditional ones," explained Chad Maynard, spokesperson for ElectronicCigarette.net, a website dedicated to e-cigs. "After all, you wouldn't dream of nagging mom about her bad habits on Mother's Day!"
Stylish, check. Indulgent, check. Long-lasting, check!
So, how does an e-cig check all the boxes for your mom?
- It looks good.
- It clearly says "treat yourself, mom." Depending on your mom's taste, you can get an e-cig starter kit with a range of flavors from fruit to chocolate or you could stick to traditional tobacco. But this is a gift that tells mom to sit down and relax.
- Flowers wilt. Chocolates are eaten and forgotten. Bath oils get used up. But if you get your mother an alternative to smoking, she can enjoy a new lifestyle for years to come.
"An e-cig starter kit can be a great Mother's Day gift," Maynard said. "I would suggest that shoppers do their research about the many different brands because they all have different pros and cons. With just a little time online, those who want to treat their mothers can find the brand that is perfect for her."
Electronic cigarettes give shoppers a lot more to consider than just style and flavors. Some have more robust vapor than others, while others fall flat on that front. Prices also vary widely. But all of the details and real life user reviews can be found on ElectronicCigarette.net.
ElectronicCigarette.net is a website featuring reviews of most e-cigarette brands. Users are encouraged to post their observations so readers can learn from each other and discuss the pros and cons of different brands.
