Mother’s Day 2021 is here, and people who have crossed it off the list so far should probably focus on getting something great that comes a little late by skipping flowers, chocolates, and other stereotypes – some great gadgets instead, because any mother would appreciate something practical that can be used year round. On this Mother’s Day we have listed some gifts that are great choices for your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother or just to thank the women in your life. These tips are useful every day, not just Mother’s Day. Here are our top gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2021.
1. Samsung Galaxy M31
According to the Amazon site, the currently most gifted smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy M20 (test). That sounds like a good place to start, but the Galaxy M20 launched in 2019, and we can find some more contemporary options too. We have a number of different guides to help you find the perfect phone for your Mother’s Day gift depending on your budget. In our guides you can find the best phones at Rs. 10,000, the best at Rs. 15,000 and the best at Rs. 20,000.
If you need a single recommendation to get the ball rolling, then check out the Samsung Galaxy M31 (review), an affordable phone with a big display and huge battery that makes it for a very good price.
If you’re looking for more cell phone ideas, we have a few more smartphone guides at different prices to check out, as well as other categories to check out.

2. Fitbit Inspire HR
Our next suggestion is one that you will definitely want to exercise discretion on. Giving a Fitbit or other wearable health tracking device can say “I care” and support people’s fitness goals. But it can also be read as a commentary on someone’s weight or general health, and even with family you might want to think twice about how your gift will be received.
That said, if your mom (or whoever you’re buying this for) is interested in fitness or wants to be nudged in that direction, the Fitbit Inspire is a great way to step into this ecosystem and keep track of sleep and activity with a gamified system that gets people to put that extra effort and a nice and easy to understand interface.

3. Oppo Enco W51
TWS headphones like these are convenient and easy to use around the house without getting tangled, whether you’re reading a book, surfing the web, or exercising. The large number of TWS products on the market, ranging from a few hundred rupees to premium high-end devices, shows how great the demand for such products is.
Our pick, the Oppo Enco W51, is a TWS set that is great value for money and has good noise cancellation. This is a bit of a plus if you are making phone calls using these headphones. Other options in this price range lack such features, and while battery life could be better, we recommend this set.
On the high end, you could consider the Apple AirPods Pro, which is expensive but really has the most features and the best audio quality in the segment. If you’re not convinced, check out our guide to TWS headphones to choose the ones that will suit you best.

4. Kindle Paperwhite
The Kindle Paperwhite really makes a perfect gift. If your mom loves reading, she’ll be hooking on it in no time, and if she doesn’t, she’ll fall in love with reading again. The Kindle Paperwhite has a 6-inch backlit display that is really easy on the eyes. It’s easy to carry around for distraction-free reading, and the battery basically lasts forever. Add to this the ease with which you can buy books on a Kindle, and even non-tech people love them.
The Kindle can also be spiced up with book covers and leather-bound envelopes, as well as the Rs. 199 per month Kindle Unlimited subscription is a great way to add even more value to that gift.

If the Kindle is a great option for book lovers, then the iPad is the perfect tablet for everyone else. It’s great for watching movies, streaming videos and listening to music, reading books and magazines, surfing the internet, and playing a variety of games. And while Apple is known for its premium products, the base iPad is great value for money, which makes it a very budget-friendly purchase.
While there are also high-end options like the iPad Pro, the 9.7-inch iPad is a great choice, also because it’s very portable, lightweight, and has great battery life. So, if you are looking for the best tablet to buy for your mom or other family members, this is the top pick on our site.
