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.

Your mom has spent her whole life pampering you. It’s time to pamper her — or at least let her pamper herself. This Conair SKN Sonic Facial Brush is a daily use brush mom can easily integrate into her skincare routine. It has three different brushes that each help clean, exfoliate and rejuvenate skin. She can use it in combination with the cleansers and moisturizers she already owns, but with the extra power a rechargeable brush adds.

We all want a blender, but for some reason we’re always hesitant to buy one for ourselves. The Ninja Mega Kitchen System is a multi-use device that replace your blender, mixer and food processor. It comes with several different attachments that allow for a wide range of uses.

Mom’s are some of the busiest people in the world — so busy they can barely have time to make coffee. If this reminds you of your mom, get her a Keurig from our Keurig deals. 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 important to stay active as you get older. One way to ensure that you’re getting your daily exercise in is by tracking it. Get your mom a smartwatch and she’ll know exactly how much activity she’s getting in. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 does more than that. 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.

Best Buy is having a huge open-box sale — here’s what’s worth buying
The LG C3 Series OLED 4K TV in a living room.

Now that Amazon Prime Day deals are behind us, you might be thinking that all the great prices have vanished. Fortunately that’s not the case, as retailers like Best Buy are still offering some terrific sales on new and used items. Speaking of which: Have you ever considered buying an open-box product? Because if you have, we’d like to direct you to a major open-box blowout that Best Buy is having. 

In most cases, an open-box device is an item that was bought and returned within Best Buy’s 14-day return window. Maybe the TV was too big for the customer’s living room. Perhaps they needed a laptop with a stronger processor. Whatever the case may be, open-box items are resold with significant discounts. Sometimes an accessory or two might be missing, but Best Buy should indicate this in the product listing.
