Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Thrill Mom with a gift she’ll use and love all year — long after the flowers have dried and the candy has been eaten. Here at Connecting Point, we have a few recommendations we’d like to share. (Also, we’re open every day, including Sunday — Mother’s Day itself — so we’ve got you covered.)

Do you know what 60 Hertz feels like?

Mom’s mouth will drop when she listens to the big sound coming out of this diminutive speaker. Few pocket-size Bluetooth speakers can produce 60Hz bass, the kind of bass you feel as well as hear — but the SubSonic can. It even doubles as a hands-free speakerphone. And to make it sound even sweeter, we’re shaving 10 bucks off the regular price!
