1. The gift that everyone really wants
Of all the gifts you could give Mom this Mother’s Day, AirPods are sure to be at the top of her list. As the best true wireless earbuds we’ve ever used and *the* sellout gift of 2019 holiday season, these AirPods are in a class all their own. Right now, you have the chance to save on not just one, but three different models. Whether you opt for the latest and greatest (the AirPods Pro) or go with the original version (the AirPods with Charging Case), you’re guaranteed to knock it out of the park with something she’s been secretly coveting—and save in the process.
2. This iconic multicooker that all Moms need to try
If Mom doesn’t already own an Instant Pot, it’s time to change that. This much-loved kitchen gadget is a blessing for busy parents because it makes it remarkably easy to put together meals in a hurry, especially when using its pressure cook functionality. While there are tons of models out there—including our favorite, the Instant Pot Ultra—the most popular one around has to be the Instant Pot Duo, which is currently on sale at Amazon for $20.95 off its list price of $99.95, so you’ll be getting it for $79. This is always the version that sells out first around Prime Day and Black Friday (and, as the entry Instant Pot option, is also the easiest to use ), making for a great Mother’s Day gift.
3. A robot vacuum to make her life easier
This year, why not give Mom the gift of a tidier house? You can start with the floors when you take advantage of this stellar deal happening on the Eufy Anker BoostIQ RoboVac 11S (Slim). When it comes to affordable robot vacuums, this is the best one we’ve ever used because of its impressive dirt-suctioning capabilities, plus its slim profile, which allows it to easily glide under couches and get at other hard-to-reach areas. This robot vacuum normally costs $219.99 (in fact, that’s what it’s going for on Amazon at the moment), but you can get it for $149.99 and save $70 if you grab it now at Woot.
4. These smart gadgets that tech-loving Moms will dig
Moms who love smart tech are sure to appreciate how easy the best Amazon Echo smart speakers make it to listen to music, order things online and stay on top of important obligations. Right now, you can save on two of our favorite smart speakers: the Echo (3rd Generation) and the Echo Show 5. The former is ideal if you’d like an easy-to-use smart speaker in every room. With the latter, Mom will get a smart speaker with a display screen, so it’s especially convenient for syncing up to pre-existing video feeds from smart cameras, video doorbells and more. Depending on which you choose, you’ll save between $20 to $40.
5. The classic gift that never goes out of style
It doesn’t get more classic than flowers for Mother’s Day. Thanks to this deal happening at 1-800-Flowers, you can still grab Mom a floral arrangement that’s sure to make her heart melt. From now through Thursday, April 30, save 25% on your order with coupon code 25MDAY for delivery by Sunday, May 10.
6. A timeless satchel
Shopping for apparel for somebody else can be difficult, but you can’t go wrong with a timeless leather handbag in a neutral hue. Thanks to Coach’s Spring Event, which takes 30% off select items with coupon code YAYSPRING at checkout through May 10, you can get this gorgeous Elise Satchel, regularly $295, for $206.50. This purse is going for the same price in black on Amazon, but shipping delays are expected on non-essential items. At Coach, this top-rated style is available in five neutral hues and features plenty of space for everything mom will need to tote once life resumes from quarantine. There’s also a removable strap that busy mamas on-the-go can attach for a crossbody style. For an extra-personal touch, add a monogram free of charge (though you’ll want to note that custom items take an extra two to three days to ship).
7. This ultra-cozy throw
Hug her even when you can’t be there with the gift of this warm and fuzzy UGG Ana Throw, which falls by 55% with promo code THANKSMOM at Belk through Sunday, May 3. Now $44.10, we couldn’t find it anywhere else for less than list price of $98, making this one heck of a steal. It’s got a sherpa fleece lining one side and an eyelash sweater material on the other, is fully reversible, and boasts a muted white color that will match nearly any decorating scheme. What’s more, it measures 50 x 70 inches, giving mom more than enough snuggle room while streaming all her favorite shows.
8. This portable Bluetooth speaker she can take outside
Whether she’s gardening, fixing dinner or just flipping through the paper on a lazy Sunday morning, Mom would probably enjoy some music playing in the background. Luckily, there’s a great deal happening on the best cheap portable Bluetooth speaker we’ve had the pleasure to come across. From now through Sunday, May 3, you can get the Anker Soundcore on sale for $20.88 when you enter promo code SPKBT3102 (find the promo code area on the second-to-last screen of checkout under the section designated “Gift Cards, Vouchers & Promotional Codes”). That’s a little more than $9 off its list price of $29.99. In testing, we loved the Soundcore’s long-lasting battery life, sturdy design, colorful selection of models and buttons, which are big and easy to press. For the price point, it’s also got solid audio quality, emitting strong bass and treble plus lots of volume, too.
9. A printing service that makes it easy to preserve her favorite memories
Unsure what to get Mom this Mother’s Day? You can’t go wrong with some cherished family photos, especially if you use Shutterfly—a.k.a. the best online photo printing service we’ve ever tried—to print them off for a tangible touch. It’s an excellent time to shop Shutterfly too, as the site is running a huge sale for the holiday for which almost everything is 50% off, including photo books, large prints and more. If you use promo code CARDSDEAL, you’ll also get free shipping on all cards.
10. This high-quality weighted blanket
Want to help mom relax? We’ve got just the thing. While our pick for the best-ever weighted blanket, the Gravity Blanket, isn’t currently on sale, Casper Sleep’s Weighted Blanket, which came in at a close third, no doubt thanks to its well-made construction, warm-yet-breathable cotton shell and cozy drape, is. Right now, you can save 10% on it at Amazon, where it’s marked down from $169 to $189 to between $152.10 and $170.10 depending on weight (choose from 10, 15 or 20 pounds).
11. These top-rated noise-canceling headphones
Let her zone out in total bliss with these noise-canceling Bose QuietComfort Series II headphones, now up for grabs at Amazon for $239. As those familiar with this über-popular model know, that’s a steal for these dependable wireless headphones, which typically go for $349. When we gave them a go, we were seriously impressed with their lightweight, comfortable feel and their extensive 20-hour battery life. Perhaps more importantly, however, they’re able to cut through a wide range of noises thanks to Bose’s much-lauded active noise cancellation (ANC). Ah, sweet, sweet silence!
12. This dryer that’ll make Mom’s hair look great
Does your mom still use the same hair dryer she had back in the ‘80s? You know the one: That brightly-colored monster that comes with three buttons and is guaranteed to frizz hair up with every use? Welp, here’s your chance to give her the upgrade she really deserves and save a little extra cash while you’re at it. Right now, you can get the best hair dryer we’ve ever used, the Bio Ionic GrapheneMX Professional Dryer, at Walmart for $179, which is $120 off its usual price. This deal is pretty remarkable, as this hair dryer is priced a $299 (its list price) at both Nordstrom and Sephora right now and almost never goes on sale. One thing’s for sure—this hair dryer is bound to blow that ancient one she’s been using clear out of the water.
13. The only running watch she’ll ever need
For Moms who thrive on the thrill of a good run, a great running watch will make for a stellar present this Mother’s Day. Our favorite pick in this category, Garmin’s Forerunner Smartwatch, makes it easy to record runs, track stats and make fitness goals achievable with a ton of helpful stats. Best of all, it’s available on Amazon right now for its lowest price ever—$249.99—rather than its typical list price of $349.99. This is the first time we’ve ever seen this great device go on sale, so it’s absolutely worth checking out. Worried that Mom won’t put it to much use until after quarantine ends? This smartwatch comes with some other incredible built-in features, like the ability to play music directly, so your giftee can enjoy it at any time.
14. A cute twist on our favorite tea infuser
For Moms who love tea, this deal on the mega-popular Fred and Friends Flamingo Silicone Tea Infuser is worth spreading the word about. Similar to the best tea infuser we’ve ever used (the Manatea) except for its shape, this version comes in the form of a too-cute flamingo and is on sale for its lowest price ever—$8.49. In testing, we loved Fred and Friends’ adorable tea infuser because of how easy it was to clean. Unlike other tea infusers, this one is designed so that leaves almost never get stuck or escape during use. Do Mom—and your wallet—a favor and grab one if she doesn’t already have an infuser she loves.
15. These ultra-cozy slippers
L.L.Bean’s famed Wicked Good slippers are one of the best things you can buy at the store. Why? For starters, they’re seriously comfortable (I would know, I own a pair). Lined with ultra-soft shearling, they cushion feet and feel incredibly soft on skin. They also last forever. Case in point: I’ve had mine for almost a decade and they’re still going strong (although admittedly are starting to look a little worse for wear). Right now at L.L.Bean, you can choose from a few different options and save up to about $34, depending on your selection.
