Amazon Echo (or Amazon Tap, or Amazon Echo Dot)

Not only can Alexa, Amazon's voice control robot assistant, tell amazingly corny jokes, she can also play music, read off the latest news headlines and control a ton of connected gadgets in the home.

There's also a hardware option to suit a variety of budgets, from the $180 Echo to the $130 battery-powered Tap and the $90 Echo Dot.

All of them are good and all of them are sure to put a smile on mom's face.
