In addition to our picks below, know that Amazon is also offering some sales on key hardware items in its inventory:

Gizmos and gadgets

Tile Mate

Tile

Make sure your mom never loses anything again, at least not if it's attached to the Tile -- a small, Bluetooth-powered tag that can be paired with her phone. Once connected, she can use the Tile app to locate whatever it's attached to, from her keys to her bag. And a double-press of the Tile itself will make her phone chirp, even if it's set to silent. 

Target is currently selling a four-pack of the company's new Tile Mate, which features a rechargeable battery, that comes with a free Google Home Mini (which normally costs $40) for $60. That's a dynamite deal. 

Note that some older Tile models have nonrechargeable batteries and will last only for a year or so. Amazon is currently selling a bundle of four of those for $40.

JBL Clip 3 Bluetooth speaker

Just what every mom needs: a micro wireless speaker to play her jams on. Not only does this fully waterproof Bluetooth model have solid battery life and sound quality, it's quite durable, thanks to the integrated carabiner that acts as a bumper. It started out at $60 but now costs $40.

Instant Pot

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

Every cook's arsenal of kitchen gadgets needs an Instant Pot. This beloved pressure cooker has cultivated an obsessive, cultlike fanbase of chefs who have all but abandoned their slow cookers. It's like a pressure cooker on steroids that can whip up a delicious meal incredibly fast. And this model, the $70 6-quart Instant Pot Lux 6-in-1 V3, is versatile: it can cook slow or fast, at a low or high temperature, and steam and saute.

Google Home Hub

Google's Home Hub will blend into any room in your mom's house. It's a super-useful digital assistant that can lend a hand in the kitchen while doubling as a photo frame or smart home control panel. And right now, Rakuten is selling the Google Home Hub for $87. That's a red-hot deal on a great digital assistant. (It's also at Walmart for $99.)

Jabra Active Elite 65t

Sarah Tew/CNET

Moms wearing Blueooth headphones look cool, without exception. The Jabra Active Elite 65t are fully sweat-resistant earphones that fit comfortably and securely. They're not cheap, at $150, but they sound excellent -- whether your mom is listening to tunes or making calls -- and feature two microphones in each earpiece. Battery life is decent at five hours, and the included charging case delivers two extra charges.

Apple iPad

Sarah Tew/CNET

The iPad and its ecosystem of iOS apps could help a mom do a lot -- surf the web, stream music, watch movies, even FaceTime the kids or perhaps grandchildren. Sure, at $280, it's not as cheap as the Amazon Fire. But last year's addition of Pencil support gave the iPad a considerable power-up, and it was already a top-notch tablet.

Apple Watch

Angela Lang/CNET

The Apple Watch will make a very nice Mother's Day gift. The Series 4, which starts at around $385 on Amazon, features a large, crisp display, blazing-fast speed and a loud speaker. It also adds heart-rate detection, fall detection with an SOS trigger and an FDA-cleared ECG app for more detailed heart readings.

That noted, there are plenty of older Apple Watches on the market that are considerably less expensive. You can pick up the Series 3 for $229 and a refurbished Series 2 -- they're hard to find brand-new these days -- is even cheaper.
