Used by exclusive hotels and day spas for years, this device has now been designed for homes. With classic, sleek lines, these units fit right into any bathroom d?cor and can be used to warm robes or dry delicate clothing instead of using a dryer. Mom will also combat germs, mildew and musty smells that form in wet towels, and wash towels less often.

Price: $49.99-$219.99.     Universal Cord Adapting Drapery System - Want mom to be able to open the drapes from bed in the morning to let the sun shine in?

The dispenser, which requires four AA batteries, features a low-battery indicator and a one-year manufacturer's warranty. Price: $24.99.      WaterDog - Let mom take a break from filling Fido's water dish. Plugged into any spigot, the WaterDog uses sonar technology to detect the presence of an animal and releases a stream of fresh, cool water. Dogs can drink straight from the stream; no bowl is needed. The WaterDog also includes a flood protection feature-it will shut off if the dog stays in the unit's active area for longer than five minutes. With the WaterDog Automatic Water Stream, a pet owner doesn't have to worry about stagnant, frozen or dirty water, often associated with leaving a water bowl outside during hot or cold weather.
