TalkAndroid’s Mother’s Day 2021 Gift Guide

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is a time where we tend to pay special attention to our moms (if you are lucky enough that they are still around) and while they will always appreciate the customary flowers and chocolates, what about giving her something that can be appreciated every day? We’ve been doing some digging on the interwebz and come up with a bunch of gift ideas that should do the trick from a range of brands covering a slew of categories.

PopSockets PopGrip

First up is the ever-useful PopSockets PopGrip that attaches to the rear of your phone or its protective case, adding a handy grip to hold your mobile handset that makes it easier to hold and helps ease the RSI. Available in a ton of bright, colorful, dark, and sparkly colors, you can grab the PopSocket PopGrip from T-Mobile for $14.99.

AirSoap Air Purifier

Whilst buying an appliance is still a no-no when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, the AirSoap Air Purifier with Electric Wind technology could certainly help with keeping the air clean and free from bacteria and pollutants. The AirSoap Air Purifier boasts washable, reusable collecting plates made from graphene that save both the planet and expense. You can $100 off the AirSoap Air Purifier’s RRP of $399 by entering in discount code FRESH100 during checkout on the PhoneSoap store.

Roborock S5 Max

Whilst some may claim that this is also an appliance, I’d prefer to describe the Roborock S5 Max Robot Vacuum & Mop as one of life’s necessities. With its 180-minute runtime, ability to both vacuum and mop floors in a single clean, and being able to be controlled via an app on the phone or by Alexa or the Google Assistant, Roborock’s S5 Max is an all-round performer. Best of all, there’s no need to go overboard with spending because you can snag the Roborock S5 Max Robot Vacuum & Mop from Amazon for just $399 by applying the $150 coupon on the product page.

Apple Watch SE

If your Mom’s got an iPhone and wants to keep track of her activities and sleep patterns, then perhaps the Apple Watch SE will be a neat addition. Sporting advanced sensors to track fitness and workout goals, the 44mm Watch SE will also help with ensuring a good night’s sleep. With Fall Detection, Emergency SOS, Heart Rate Monitoring, built-in GPS, and cellular connectivity, your Mom won’t even need to take her phone around with her. T-Mobile has the Apple Watch SE in a variety of colors for $359 outright or $15 a month over two years.

Roku Streaming Stick+

Whether it’s catching up on the second half of Lucifer’s season 5 on Netflix or binging on 15 seasons of Criminal Minds on Prime Video, upgrading your Mom’s viewing experience with Roku’s Streaming Stick+ is a winning start. Sporting 4K and HDR compatibility, the Streaming Stick+ gives access to streaming apps such as Netflix, Prime Video, Apple TV, Disney+, HBO, and a ton of other viewing options, and can be controlled via the remote control or by voice command. Usually priced at $49.99/£49.99, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is currently reduced down to $39/£39 on Amazon in the US and UK.

Amazon Paperwhite Kindle

If your Mom is an avid reader then perhaps Amazon’s Paperwhite Kindle would be a great choice with its 300ppi backlit display and battery life that can be measured in weeks. This version is waterproof so it’s great for taking on holidays as well as to the bath to finish the latest Stephen King novel. Available in a bunch of colors, you can now pick up the Ad-supported Paperwhite Kindle from Amazon for just $95, saving $35 on the RRP of $129.99.

Finally, you can always send a bunch of flowers as well as or instead of a fancy tech gift (we aren’t judging you) to your Mom on May 9th, giving her something great to look at and smell for a few days. Whether it’s sunflowers, roses, carnations, or lilies that she prefers, remember to support your local florists if possible but most importantly, that you should be nice to your Mom every day, not just on Mother’s Day.

He’s been an Android fan ever since owning an HTC Hero, with the Dell Streak being his first phablet. He currently carries an OPPO Find X2 Pro in his pockets, a Galaxy Tab S5e in his backpack, and thinks nothing of lugging a 17-inch laptop around the world. When not immersed in the world of Android and gadgets, he’s an avid sports fan, and like all South Africans, he loves a good Braai (BBQ).
