Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and you might find yourself scrambling for a last-minute gift. Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas for mom this year:
Even before video chatting had become the de facto communication standard, the Facebook Portal was helping us do it without needing a computer or specialized software. Whether your mom lives down the block or across the globe, these video chatting devices make it easy to stay connected. The best thing about the Portal devices is that they’re pretty plug-and-play; no need to sign up for a service or subscription. And the automatically-adjusting smart camera makes it extremely easy to operate, even if Mom is less than tech-savvy.
For many moms, the ultimate gift is the gift of silence. And if there are kids and a dog and all of life’s typical annoyances echoing through the house, achieving that might seem like a tall order. But a pair of Bose Noise Canceling headphones tunes out all of that ruckus with the touch of a button. They’re comfortable enough to wear for an entire day, and have a style she’ll be comfortable wearing to the coffee shop or even in an office setting.
Perhaps no kitchen brand combines form and function better than Le Creuset. Their enameled cast-iron cookware is built to last a lifetime, elevating a simple gift to future heirloom status. And when they’re not in use, the brilliant colors of a Le Creuset dish look great on display in Mom’s kitchen. If your mom’s not much of a cook or Le Creuset’s wide assortment of coffee mugs, kettles, and small kitchen tools also make great gifts.
Any gift that helps make Mom’s life a little easier is usually a safe bet. The Roomba robotic vacuums simplify some of the most mundane, time-consuming home tasks. And Mom doesn’t need to be a tech whiz to operate these, either. Simple startup sequences make them easy to get set up, and user-friendly apps let Mom make adjustments to cleaning schedules or intensity. Current brand-wide promotions mean you can save up to $100 on some iRobot Roomba models.
Dyson’s lineup of hair styling tools takes advantage of the brand’s high-tech know-how to bring meaningful advancements to tools that haven’t changed much in the last few decades. From the Dyson Airwrap—which dries as it styles and uses the power of air to form curls—to the new Dyson Corrale hair straightener, these tools will make it easier for Mom to get salon style at home, all while making her routine quicker and being better for her hair.
