Moms are happy to get nothing more than your love and attention on Mother’s Day - but getting your special lady a gift is always a good idea. Instead of the standard chocolate and roses, why not get mom a gift that makes life easier?
After all, mom worked hard to take care of you all your life so she deserves a break. That’s exactly what she’ll get with one of these awesome household gifts.
Hue Smart Bulb Starter Kit
Even if your mom isn’t totally onboard with smart home technology, Philips Hue smart bulbs are a no-brainer. They’re fairly affordable, energy efficient and also hit on something mom has preached about since you were a kid - safety. The bulbs can be programmed to turn on when mom isn’t at home and scheduled to come on before she arrives.
If your mother nearly loses it every time she opens a disorganized drawer this is the gift for her. The aptly named Madesmart Junk Drawer Organizer with removable top tray is a versatile product that can be used to clean up virtually any drawer in the house.
A Sleek Charging Station
No one wants to deal with a mess of cords, but moms need to keep their smartphones charged. A sleek charging station that contains the cords and provides additional storage makes life a little more organized. What mom doesn’t want that?
The Balcony BBQ
If mom doesn’t have much space for a grill but wants to host a backyard barbecue The Balcony BBQ is a must. It’s also compact which is great for grilling quick meals that are easy to clean up.
Landroid Robotic Lawn Mower
With the Landroid home maintenance robot your mom will never have to bug your dad about mowing the lawn again. Landroid is like a Roomba for the lawn that keeps the grass trimmed on its own. Imagine all the arguments you’ll squash, and mom will get the perfectly maintained yard she’s always wanted.
Voice controlled smart speakers may sound intimidating, but your mom can handle the learning curve of the Echo Dot. She’ll quickly get used to having a virtual personal assistant that can answer all of her home improvement questions and control her new Hue light bulbs.
If you’ve always wanted to be your mom’s favorite child, these gifts will get you one step closer. When mom doesn’t have to deal with the messes and inconveniences on a daily basis, she can turn her attention to all the projects she’s been meaning to tackle or just relax a little.
Happy Mother’s Day!
