No more drinks going to waste.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
This is for the voracious readers. With the black and white screen designed to give the reader the appearance of a paper page and not the glare associated with tablets, this is an excellent gift. Your mother can easily download books from the Kindle store or rent ebooks from the library. If she is often on the go and does not want to haul around paperbacks, such as on a beach vacation then this is the perfect gift.

Having physical copies is a nice keepsake, and being able to easily print them makes this mobile printer a great accessory for any smartphone user.

Lots of personal touches can be added to the pictures, and the adhesive on the back makes it easy to attach to any surface.
HoMedics Shiatsu Massage Pillow

It heats up and provides a circular massage motion with an optional vibration for added massage. This is the perfect way to unwind after a long day while your mother watches tv or the news.
Google Home Mini
This small speaker is similar to Amazon’s Alexa but at a more reasonable price. It can recognize up to six voices and can be used to play music, announce breaking news and weather and control music if it is attached to an account like Spotify.
