Your mom does so much for you; the least you can do for Mother's Day is get her something that will bring a smile to her face and some convenience to her life.
Does she love to travel? Get her a suitcase that can store her tech and charge it. Does she like to cook? Choose a gadget that can help her whip up a meal in a variety of ways.
Maybe she wants to curl up with a couple of good books? Try a device that has access to over a million titles and is durable and waterproof. Our top picks for Mother's Day tech products combine utility and elegance in a way that's guaranteed to please.
For the mom looking to stay on top of her fitness regimen, we recommend the Fitbit Versa. Not only is it significantly cheaper than the latest Apple Watch, but it's also thinner. And in addition to storing onboard music, the Versa can track sleep patterns as well as a woman's period. It allows moms to log any subsequent symptoms. The watch also has its own app store and pairs seamlessly with most Bluetooth headphones.
Tile Style Key Finder
Losing your keys, phone or wallet can be a drag. Save your mom from turning her house upside down looking for lost items, and get her a Tile Style keyfinder. Whenever you lose an item that has the Tile attached, you just use the app to locate the item via location or by sounding the keyfinder alarm. The accessory is waterproof and durable, and it looks good to boot.
eufy RoboVac 11
Sometimes, something as simple as coming home to a freshly cleaned floor is a gift in itself. That's why the eufy RoboVac 11 makes our list. A self-charging vacuum, the eufy can handle carpet and hardwood floors with aplomb and can take on about any mess you throw at it, including pet hair. And when the vacuum is done clearing your floor of various debris, cleaning the RoboVac itself is as easy as pressing a button and dumping the remnants.
Instant Pot Mini 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker
For the mom who loves to cook but doesn't necessarily have the time, we suggest the Instant Pot.

The versatile gadget features 11 programmable controls, along with loads of recipes to help make an Instant Pot smorgasbord.
GoWise 3.7-Quart 7-in-1 Programmable Air Fryer
Fried foods taste great. Unfortunately, they're not that healthy — until now.

The gadget has seven different smart programs to cover several varieties of meat. But don't stop there; GoWise can also cook up a heaping helping of fried veggies.
If you or people you know are die-hard Apple fans, the Apple AirPods are a must-have. These truly wireless earbuds delivers good audio performance, but features like near-instantaneous pairing, Find My Buds and 5 hours of battery life make the AirPods a star. And of course, they're Siri-compatible. If you're looking to cut the cord with your iPhone, you can't do better than the Apple AirPods.
URPower Essential Oil Diffuser
Is your mom feeling stressed, anxious or just bummed out? Sometimes, a little aromatherapy can go a long ways — or maybe she just wants to freshen up a room that's a little stinky. That's where the URPower essential oil diffuser comes in. Shaped like a stylish wooden vase, the URPower can dole out from 6-12 hours of sweet-smelling essence; just add your favorite essential oil. Or, if the air is a little too dry, the URPower also has a humidifier function.
Amazon Echo Spot
Nowadays, Amazon Alexa is everywhere, so why not let your mom put it right next to her bed? The Echo Spot is the ultimate upgrade to that tired, old alarm clock. Your mom will get a colorful screen that can display news and upcoming events, a photo of a treasured memory, or even videos. The Spot also features a small camera so Mom can video chat in bed, and, of course, the voice-activated digital assistant is on hand to play music, answer questions, help Mom order a pizza and control other smart home devices.
Your mom has been a part of some of your most treasured memories, so why not show her how precious those times were with a Mixbook? An online photo-design tool, Mixbooks lets you create customized photo books, cards and canvas prints that are perfect for reminiscing on all those special times.

Hyper Pearl Makeup Compact Mirror and Charger
When Mom's on the go, there's nothing worse than mussed makeup or a dead smartphone. Hyper seeks to solve both problems with the Pearl makeup compact mirror and charger. Along the side of the device sits a USB 2.0 port that taps into a 3,000-mAH battery capable of charging a smartphone or small tablet. Opening the compact, Mom will see two separate mirrors; one has normal magnification, while the second one gives a close-up view, with 3X magnification.
