Mother’s Day gift ideas for every type of mom


Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and if you haven’t thought about a gift yet, don’t panic! While every mom loves a homemade card, if you want to take it up a notch this year, the moms of the Best Buy blog have you covered!

As the newest member of the Best Buy blog team, I asked all of the other writers who are moms what’s on their wish list for Mother’s Day. Here’s what they said!

Mother’s Day gift for the busy mom

Dyson is always on the cutting edge of technology, and the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is no exception. Its intelligent microprocessor actually measures the air temperature to avoid damaging your hair with extreme heat!

It also has a fast drying setting that cuts down on total time spent blow-drying. Let’s face it, moms are busy! Anything that helps us save time is rightfully high up on our wish list.

“I’ve had my eye on this dryer for quite some time. It combines high-tech with personal care. I love that it is designed not to be top-heavy, to avoid damaging your hair with heat, and has a fast drying feature. I find I’m straightening my naturally curly hair less often these days because I simply don’t have time, so if this could help dry my hair in less time, it would make me one happy mama!”

Mother’s Day gift for the health-conscious mom

Fitness trackers are all the rage right now, and for good reason. The Nokia Steel HR 40mm Fitness Tracker is a stylish alternative to a traditional fitness watch, and it can be customized by switching out the band. Seriously, how gorgeous is this watch? If your mom is both fashion- and health-conscious, this is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for her.

“My Mother’s Day came early this year because I couldn’t wait until May! I recently reviewed the Nokia Steel HR fitness watch, and in order to properly test out all the features I wore it every day for two weeks. It tracks your activity, your sleep, and your heart rate right on the watch, and it also sends it all to the Nokia app so you can check and see how active you’ve been during the day.

When I finished the review I mentioned to the kids that I would love to have one for Mother’s Day, so they went out and picked one up for me. Because I missed using it so much, they gave it to me early!”

Mother’s Day gift for the fun-loving mom

Mother's Day giftCruiser bikes have been making a comeback in recent years! They’re such a cute way to get more exercise and cut down on your carbon footprint. For the mom who loves to get outdoors and ride around in style, there’s the Apollo Women’s Vintage Bike. She’ll be kicking her old bike to the curb faster than you can say sayonara!

“I’ve wanted a cruiser bike for some time now. Riding a bike makes me feel like a kid again and my youngest son and I ride quite often (weather permitting). It’s a fun way to get exercise in and spend quality time with the kiddos.”

Mother’s Day gift for the pet mom

Mother's Day gift

If you’re a dog or cat mom, you’ve probably wondered what your little fur babies were up to while you’re at work. Well, now you’ll know! The Petcube Play Interactive Wi-Fi HD Pet Camera allows you to see and even interact with your pets when you’re not home.

“I mainly work from home, so I’m with my cats most of the time, but I’m always curious (and a bit anxious!) to see them when I’m not there. I’ve used a basic security camera at home in the past. Until recently I had an old and sick cat at home, and I was relieved to be able to remotely watch her whenever I wasn’t home for a short period of time.

But the Petcube is more than just a security camera as it would allow me to talk to my cats and also to play with them with the laser pointer! I’m sure I’d be thrilled. And they would be annoyed. Haha!”

Mother’s Day gift for the adventurous mom

Mother's Day giftMy pick for Mother’s Day is the GoPro HERO6 Black Waterproof 4K Sports Camera. Ever since my first time whitewater rafting, I’ve been dying to get one!

Its incredible image quality, hands-free voice control, automatic video editing, and robust design make GoPro arguably the best sports camera on the market. With a few small accessories, it’s easy to connect to your helmet, or strap to your chest or wrist, so you can focus on fully enjoying your experience rather than worrying about holding the camera. I would love to have a GoPro to capture my most exciting moments on my next adventure tour, whether it be surfing, zip lining, kayaking, snowboarding, or snorkelling. How amazing would it be to re-live that adrenaline rush?

For the mom who loves to travel and try new things, the GoPro HERO6 is a must-have!

Mother's Day giftThe Google Home Mini is a smart home speaker that responds to your voice. This tiny, super-portable “personal assistant” can help Mom stay organized, play her favourite music, even guide her through cooking or baking without looking at a recipe!

This is multi-tasking at its finest. Mom can ask Google about traffic while she makes her breakfast, or find out the weather while she helps the kids pack their bags for school.


Mother's Day giftFor the mom who loves to cook, the Instant Pot is a multi-functional pressure cooker that can whip up delicious, healthy meals in a matter of minutes. There’s no need for multiple appliances, because the Instant Pot does pretty much everything: slow cooking, sautéing/browning, steaming, yogurt making, and more. It includes a recipe book for new, easy meal ideas.


Flowers are lovely and all, but if you’re ready to seriously wow your mom this year, now you know how!
