5 great deals for Mother’s Day
Hopefully this isn’t news to you, but in North America Mother’s Day is this Sunday. It’s not too late to show your mom how much you appreciate her, for one day of the year at least. If you’re on the hunt for gift ideas, here are five great deals which might just make her day.
Sony Xperia Smartphone
Maybe it’s time for a new smartphone. You can teach your mom how to use WhatsApp!
Right now on we have teamed up with Daily Steals to bring you a flash sale on new and refurbished Sony Xperia phones. There are four great models to choose from which suit all budgets. You can pick up a refurbished Sony Xperia L1 for only $89.99, or if you’re feeling generous there’s $90 off a new Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, which was only launched in February of this year.
The ‘flash’ part of this sale is that it ends in on Thursday, but you’ll want to be ordering before then anyway to ensure your gift arrives in time for the weekend. Mother dearest doesn’t need to know you bought it in a sale (we won’t tell), nor that you used our promo code AAXPERIA to get a further $10 discount at the checkout.
Although the least practical, flowers are the sweetest and safest option. This old classic never fails.
These are not gas station flowers either. These fancy bouquets are made up of fresh flowers from eco-friendly and sustainable farms, so you can look like you’re caring for Mother Earth this Mother’s day too.
Don’t worry, Bouqs are specialists in getting people out of tricky situations, and know you might be reading this on Friday afternoon. Next day and same day delivery are available. At the moment for $30 you get $50 worth of credit to spoil mom with the finest blooms.
XXL Shower Speaker
You passed on the smartphone and the flowers? Perhaps mum is hard to please, or maybe you’re just looking for a more novel option.
If it’s the latter, you’re still playing it fairly safe with the XXL Shower Speaker. It’s not the sweetest gift ever, but it’s sure to liven up or bring classical tranquillity to the shower or bath experience.
Available in four jaunty colors, this bluetooth speaker has twice the power of most shower speakers. You can even make and receive calls on it, like the call on Mother’s Day itself in which you explain why you didn’t buy her the smartphone.
At least you can tell her in good conscience they have a retail value of $100. Currently they’re on offer for just $19.99.
Plantronics Wireless Headphones
Everyone needs headphones, and even if your mom already has some, these are probably a nice upgrade.
These high-end wireless headphones from Plantronics come with a host of metaphorical bells and whistles attached. High quality sound streams through pillow-soft cushions, and pauses when you take them off or receive a call.
A lightweight design and automatically adjusting headband add to an all-round comfortable listening experience. That’s just as well, because they can stream for up to 18 hours on a single charge.
Originally on the market for $180, they’re currently on promotion over at Daily Steals for just $79.99. That includes a one year warranty, so you’re safely covered until next Mother’s Day.
Ecovacs Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
If mom still does the majority housework, then maybe it’s time you helped out. This gift at least takes one of the chores off her load, it’s robotic. Be sure to present it in the right way though, a lot of moms wouldn’t take kindly to being given a vacuum cleaner for Mother’s Day!
Here’s your pitch: This state-of-the-art robotic vacuum cleaner does everything for her. It’s AI technology maneuvers it around your house happily cleaning away while mother puts her feet up in front of the TV with a glass of wine. It has anti-collision technology, and even knows to toddle off and charge itself when its battery is low.
Three cleaning modes and a five-stage cleaning process means that this smart vac leaves your surfaces looking spotless, and it can be controlled in a variety of ways. There’s an included remote, or it can be linked to a smartphone. It can also be synced to your Alexa or Echo, so mom needn’t lift a finger. Maybe she could give it a name to make it seem more friendly while she orders it about.
Right now you can pick up a refurbished model for only $199.99. It’s not the cheapest vac in the world, but the alternative (more thoughtful) gesture would be to offer to do the vacuuming for a year like a good boy or girl. When you think of it like that, this robotic helper suddenly doesn’t seem such a bad idea.
