Mother’s Day is this Sunday and if you forgot, well it’s now time to start placing some online orders. This last-minute gift guide will offer some ideas that mom might love, in no particular order. With COVID-19 causing delays on deliveries, you can blame late shipping on the pandemic. It’s the thought that counts, right?
Apple Gift Ideas
Apple.ca has a gift guide listing ideas for mom, just as an iPad with Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, Apple Gift Card, AirPods with personalized engraving, iPhone SE, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and other accessories. Apple stresses online orders have free shipping and no-contact delivery. Don’t forget to check out refurbished iPads from Apple as there have been some great deals in stock lately.
Sonos Playbar and Sub
Ahead of launching the new Sonos Arc soundbar with Dolby Atmos, the company slashed the price on its older but still excellent, Playbar. It’s available for $679 (save $200) and can drastically improve the sound quality when mom watches TV. The Sonos Sub (Gen 2) has also been discounted now that Gen 3 has been announced.
If your mom is tired of mopping the floors, the latest iRobot Braava Jet M6 ($599) can both dry and wet mop, while options are available for you to pick what rooms based on smart maps. If money is no object, an iRobot S9+ self-emptying base can be setup for paired cleans, allowing for full automation of cleaning at home.
All this time at home means extra time to watch family movies and shows, and Disney+ offers a fantastic library if mom is fan of Star Wars, Pixar films, Disney content, National Geographic, The Simpsons and more. There’s a free trial and after it’s $8.99 CAD per month, viewable on any device, Apple TV and the web.
Nest Hello or Google Nest Hub Max
One of the best video doorbells out there is the Nest Hello ($299). Let your mom know when you’re at the front door and also to easily track when deliveries arrive. The Google Nest Hub Max ($249) also offers video calls through Google Duo, and is also the perfect sous chef in the kitchen for following recipes and setting timers powered by Google. It’s also the best digital picture frame when linked to Google Photos.
If your mom loves to read, consider getting her a Kindle to take her books digital no matter where she goes. Currently, Amazon has its Kindle on sale for $84.99 (save 29%) and Kindle Paperwhite for $114.99 (save 18%). Spend the extra on the Paperwhite model—you won’t regret it.
Here’s to a happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
