Mother’s Day is coming up — don’t forget to spoil your mom! Tech products make great gifts. Unlike books and jewelry, which often gather dust shortly after being unwrapped, tech products get used every day, as long as you match the product to your mom’s needs and lifestyle. A smart home hub with a screen will make it easier for her to have video calls with her grandkids. A smartwatch will help her track her activity and send texts from her wrist. A new blender can replace the one she’s been using since you were a baby. So cook your mom a nice dinner, reminisce with her over a photo album, then give her a gift from one of the best Mother’s Day tech deals. These are our picks.

It comes with several different attachments that allow for a wide range of uses.

She can make a single cup of coffee in a few minutes, get her shot of caffeine, and move on with her day. The K-Elite is built for one cup of coffee at a time, but you can select how big that cup is and how strong you want the coffee. It even makes iced coffee.

It’s also a link to your smartphone, letting you check messages and even call people right on your wrist. If your mom has a Samsung phone, this is the perfect gift for her.
