Flowers and chocolates might be the go-to for Mother’s Day, but why not consider gifts that might be less conventional but could be far more useful, not to mention longer lasting? It’s the proverbial gift that keeps on giving. The latest products from Brother International fit the bill to a T. Here are five recommendations for mothers of every profile.
01 | For the eco-conscious mum: Ink Refill Tank printer series
Designed with sustainability in mind, this newly launched line of four models represents space- and resource-saving print solutions that don’t compromise on print quality. Outfitted with high-yield refill bottles and featuring automatic two-sided printing, this printer series boasts outstanding cost per page and reduced paper wastage. And multi-page copy, scan and fax capabilities, as well as built-in wireless and Ethernet connectivity, make this the machine you can’t do without.
02 | For the professional mum: Colour Laser Multi-function Centre MFC-L3770CDW
The ideal #WFH appliance, this printer is synonymous with productivity, with its enhanced print speeds of up to 25 pages per minute, vivid colour printing and graphics at 2,400-dpi resolution, 250-sheet paper input tray, 800-MHz processor and 512-mb memory. And the multitasking functionality means you can skip ahead to the next task even while the current print job is still in progress, making work a smooth, delightful process.
03 | For the craft-enthusiast mum: ScanNCut SDX1200
Mums that take hobbies seriously will appreciate a machine like this. A standalone appliance that doesn’t require connecting to a computer, this device is capable of producing an astounding variety of designs from materials besides paper — such as foam, fabric and felt of up to 3-mm thickness — cut by the fully automatic blade, based on 1,303 built-in pattern options or entered into the system via the 600-dpi built-in scanner. In particular, the blade sensor technology is capable of detecting the correct cutting depth and applying the appropriate pressure to produce a precise cut.
04 | For the organised mum: P-Touch Cube PT-P710BT
This compact labelling powerhouse is essential to anyone passionate about tidying, whether at home or at work. Small but mighty, it creates customised labels through direct thermal printing on a range of ribbons and adhesive tapes, even decorated or matt ones. Connected to the dedicated smartphone app, Brother P-touch Design&Print, via Bluetooth, the P-Touch Cube can generate labels designed with a variety of fonts, symbols, frames and templates, and even custom QR codes. Its auto-cut function and integrated lithium-ion battery enhance its ease of use and portability.
05 | For the creative mum: Innov-is NV180
This computerised embroidery and sewing machine not only produces smooth, precise stitches, it is decked out with a slew of high-tech features. Built-in stitch types, embroidery designs, frame patterns and lettering fonts can be added to any design, which can be edited through the 3.2-inch LCD touchscreen display. What’s more, this appliance can create personalised sewing stitches and save them for future use. A spacious sewing and embroidery area makes realising large, complex designs a cinch.
