Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus
The new Galaxy Buds Plus may look exactly the same from last year’s model; however, they’ve many significant improvements. To help moms have the best listening experience with her podcasts, music or when going out for a walk, we recommend Samsung’s latest wireless buds.
If mom got an iPhone, the AirPods is the only wireless earbud she needs. The latest model has active noise cancellation, transparency mode, adaptive EQ, and a new design. A nice pair of wireless earbuds could keep her company when she heads out solo into the neighborhood for a walk. (It’s 6% – $14.05 off as of this writing)
If mom is not an essential worker, she’s confined at home to comply with social distancing rules. To help her stay busy and entertained, the Roku Streaming Stick Plus is a great choice Mother’s Day gift ideas. She can enjoy every major channel and streaming service, including Netflix and Hulu.
Apple’s second generation of the iPhone SE is the iPhone to get if you want a new iPhone. The new iPhone SE looks like an iPhone 8 with the same typical iPhone design, but with the brain of an iPhone 11. It also has water and dust resistant. Mom will get a decent phone with a top-notch performance.
Google’s latest flagship smartphone is currently at its lowest price point, and would make a nice gift for Mother’s Day. The Pixel 4 can take incredible photos especially at night with its Night Sight feature. Help mom saves all her memories with high definition.
The Samsung Galaxy S10E is still one the best Galaxy phones you can buy. It has a glass-and-aluminum design, comes with the powerful Snapdragon 855 chipset and a long-lasting battery. It also comes with a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which should be enough for most moms.
To help mom stay in shape and track her fitness, we recommend the Fitbit Charge 4. Besides keeping track of her health, mom can use it to control Spotify songs, make contactless payments, and track her location without the need of a phone. It behaves like a smartphone without the added bulk.
