Of course, Moms will always appreciate and love whatever their children give them on Mother’s Day. But let’s be real, there are certain gifts that end up collecting dust in the closet. That’s why some would prefer going for the clichés such as flowers, jewelries or gift certificates. Don’t just settle for that though. Moms deserve a well-thought-out gift, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. You know how mothers scoff at the idea of their loved ones spending a fortune on unnecessary items.
This year, get the superwoman of your life a gift that she’ll actually use. You do know her best, but I have a few ideas to help you out.
1. Succulent Box
Instead of the usual bouquet of flowers on Mother’s Day, why not get her a plant that would actually last like a Succulent Box. Succulents are low maintenance, attractive and can be brought indoors. So what’s not to love? Whether she has a green thumb or not, these plants make for a beautiful and practical gift.
2. Personalized Coffee Set
Make your own gift set or basket with a personalized mug and gourmet coffee grounds. This will surely make her smile and remind her every morning how special she is to you.
3. Kitchen Stand
Whether she uses the good old cookbooks or her trusty tablet, a kitchen stand is a helpful tool that she can definitely use while trying out a new recipe.
Amazon Handmade has a number of personalized kitchen stands that you can choose from like this customizable wooden kitchen stand that can hold cookbooks, tablets and iPads.
4. Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
If your budget permits, a robotic vacuum cleaner is a brilliant gift that can save her from the tiring and time-consuming chore of cleaning the floors. The iRobot Roomba is equipped with sensors and a cleaning system that navigates its way to your home, automatically docks and recharges and even allows the user to schedule cleaning up to 7 times per week. All you need to do is turn it on and let Roomba do the vacuum cleaning!
5. Budget Friendly Tablet
If she doesn’t own one yet, get her a budget friendly tablet that she can start with. For less than $50, the Fire Tablet is already equipped with a beautiful 7” IPS display, 2-MP camera, up to 200 GB of expandable storage and a fast quad-core processor of four high-performance 1.3 GHz for quick app launches, smooth games and videos, and great overall performance. It even now comes with Amazon’s famous digital assistant, Alexa.
6. Alexa Device
Speaking of Alexa, why not give her a “24/7 personal assistant” to help her out with random stuff like checking the weather, control smart home, set a timer for her home-cooked meals, set and be reminded about appointments, order from Amazon hands-free and even create a grocery list through voice. Alexa has thousands of skills and is primarily available on the Echo, Tap and Dot.
