If your mum’s got an eye for nostalgic knick-knacks that remind her of the good old days, she’ll love a retro radio like this one from Roberts.

It can be used with batteries to make it portable as well, which means she’ll have no trouble blasting out the golden oldies when she’s sunbathing in the garden.
Mums never seem to have a moment to themselves, so if yours lives life on-the-go she needs a pair of wireless headphones like these from JBL.

They’ll even let her answer calls on-the-go, so whether she’s squeezing in a quick run or tackling your never-ending laundry pile, she’ll always be able to answer the phone when you’re calling to find out what’s for dinner.
Let your Mum put her feet up this Mother’s Day and give her the on-hand helper she deserves. With the Google Home Mini smart speaker, she’ll have a virtual assistant to help her out with everything around the house. She can ask for recipe suggestions when she’s making dinner, play her favourite tunes when she’s entertaining the grandchildren and it can even set reminders when she’s too busy to write them down. Plus, if her TV has Chromecast, she’ll be able to stream all her favourite shows with a simple voice command, so she won’t have to lift a finger when it’s time to unwind in front of the TV.
