Don’t look now, but Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you’ve been procrastinating about picking out a gift (or if you’re just hearing about it now), you still have some time to buy your mom a great present in time for Sunday, thanks to the magic of internet shopping.
If you’re stumped about what to buy, you can’t really go wrong with tech items. Anyone can find use out of a new gadget, especially if you’ve been staying home more than usual. Flowers never really go out of style (in fact, you can order a Mother’s Day bouquet here), but the holiday presents a great opportunity to get your mom something else. And right now, you can find fantastic deals on electronics.
From premium headphones to digital picture frames, Amazon has a bunch of great discounts, but the fact that they’re happening the week before Mother’s Day makes them even sweeter. While it’s not too late to find a great gift, the clock is definitely ticking. Fortunately, Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on millions of items in the Amazon store. If you haven’t subscribed to the service yet, $12.99 a month gets you an Amazon Prime membership plus streaming access Prime’s film and TV library, in addition to the shipping perks. If there was ever a good time to subscribe, it would definitely be now.
For more shopping suggestions, our Mother’s Day gift guide is full of crowd pleasing gift ideas. But whatever you decide to get your mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend, or any special lady in your life, make sure it’s great. She deserve it!
Give your mom the gift of relaxation with these noise cancelling headphones. Bowers & Wilkins is one of the top names in audio, so it makes sense that they’re equally proficient at stopping sound. These luxurious headphones are made of carbon fiber, and they utilize the same technology found at Abbey Road to minimize incoming noise. They’d make a great gift for any holiday, but you can currently grab them on Amazon for almost 20% off.
If you haven’t been able to see family as much as you’d like for the past year, give your mom or grandma a gift that helps her stay in touch with you. She can use this digital picture frame to display photos of everyone she loves, and you can text or email pictures directly from your phone to the frame. It’s another great example of the ways technology helps us keep in touch, and the 12% discount makes it more appealing.
Not familiar with Tile products? Get ready for a game changer. These Bluetooth tracking devices can be placed on your keys, briefcase, luggage, or even your car. If you lose them, you can use the Tile app to track them down. It’s like the Find My iPhone app, but for any item you want. These trackers were already a lot cheaper than replacing lost purses, but right now a four pack is going for 10% off. Get these for the mom in your life who tends to lose things (but no need to tell her that’s why).
You’ve heard of smart homes, but how about smart gardens?

Click and Grow makes pods with over 50 different vegetables and herbs to choose from, and it comes with basil to get your mom started. It’s currently on sale for 15% off, and if your mom loves to cook, it should pay for itself over time.
Who doesn’t love sparkling water? Give your mom the gift of refreshment this summer, without any of the environmental guilt. This kitchen gadget from SodaStream lets you make your own carbonated refreshments without going through a million cans or bottles. It’s fun, it’s green, and it’s currently 40% off.
Summer is around the corner, and many people are eagerly looking forward to backyard entertaining. And what good is a party without music?

That’s 47% off the sticker price, but your mom doesn’t have to find out.
