    It's Mother's Day next month and if you're like me, you're racking your brain trying to figure out what you can get your mum.

    HBO

    Unfortunately, a coupon booklet for free hugs isn't going to work out this year.

    One thing all mothers could use more of is a helping hand — and what better way to deliver that assistance than through technology?

    Pixar

    Let's cross our fingers that she'll want to share.

    1. This stylish pair of blue light blocking glasses that you can give her along with a note that says "for all the hours you spend playing candy crush" because the tables have definitely turned.

    Amazon

    These glasses work by blocking out the blue light from her screens, which can cause eye strain, headaches and inability to sleep. So, if she's ever complained about experiencing any of these symptoms, this is the perfect present.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $35.90.

    2. This handheld body massager, because she deserves a deep tissue massage after having to deal with you for your whole life.

    Amazon

    This deep tissue massager works all over your body and its cordless design means she can tackle her tense back muscles without fighting the cord. It comes with five interchangeable heads to target different parts of her body.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $47.99.

    3. This hot air brush that will dry and style her hair, saving her time and helping her look like the beauty queen she is.

    Amazon

    The brush uses hot air and ionic technology to get rid of frizz and leave her hair looking and feeling as smooth as silk. This one also comes with a heat protectant glove, so she won't burn her precious fingers.

    4. This coffee warmer that will keep her cuppa warm while she multitasks like a damn boss.

    Amazon

    She can plug this little gadget into her laptop and warm whatever she likes, be it coffee, tea, soup or even a baby bottle. It's super easy to clean and compact, so it won't take up heaps of space wherever she decides to use it.

    5. This white noise machine, which will help her sleep, especially if her partner snores super loudly.

    Amazon

    This sound machine has 20 unique sounds that don’t loop. There’s also a sleep timer, so she doesn’t have to worry about it running all night.


    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."

    Julia Willing

    6. This UE Boom Speaker that she can use to play her favourite songs around the house or to listen to that podcast you recommended while she makes dinner.

    @ultimateears / Via Instagram: @ultimateears

    Promising Review: "Anyone with a UE Boom will tell you the same thing — they'll never use another speaker again and there's a reason for that! This Bluetooth speaker is waterproof, has great bass and 15 hours of battery life. I also love having this little thing somewhere near me in the house playing music or podcasts while I'm working for white noise."

    8. This Kindle, so she can read her favourite books in direct sunlight, or in bed with no other lights on when she's about to go to sleep.

    Amazon

    This Kindle is super light and you can read the screen in direct sunlight without an obnoxious glare getting in the way. It features a built-in backlight that she can adjust to her liking.

    It also connects to Wi-Fi and gives you instant access to over five million e-books, some of which are COMPLETELY FREE.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    These earbuds run for four hours per charge and have smart touch technology, so she can control her tunes and answer calls without frantically looking for her phone.

    Promising review: "I've been dragging my heels to make the move to wireless earbuds — I thought for sure I'd lose one and that having to charge them would be a massive inconvenience. My husband bought these as a gift and now I love the convenience of not having to hold my phone when out and about, should I want to listen to my music. Their holder has magnetic properties, so when charging or just being stored, you don't have to worry about the earbuds falling out and getting lost."

    @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com, Amazon, @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "LIFX lighting is the best purchase I've ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it's also really good for things such as sleep hygiene.

    At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it's time to wind down and it's much easier to fall asleep. It's perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There's a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you're playing! It's so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE."

    This alarm clock gradually gets brighter during a 30 minute period before her actual alarm goes off, so that by the time it does, she's ready to hop out of bed.

    She can choose natural sounds to wake up to, like birds singing, ocean waves, a steady stream, beeping, wind bells, soft music, piano music or FM radio if she'd prefer some bangers to start her day.
