The Mom Who Likes It Hot
Coffee or tea, that is. There's nothing worse than filling your mug on a busy morning, only to find that it's gone cold shortly thereafter. The Ember mug (in this gorgeous rose gold color!) is the perfect gift for the mom who doesn't get a second to sip — but deserves all the time in the world.

The Coffee Obsessed
When you ask yourself how your mom manages to do it all, the answer is most likely caffeine. Lots of caffeine. Nespresso's Vertuo Next makes everything ranging from espressos to pour-overs, and will make her feel like she's at a fancy cafe instead of in her own kitchen. The Vertuo Next is on sale for 30% off until May 10, so get shopping!

The Mom Who Believes in Safety First
If your mom stayed up waiting for you to get home safely, she'll appreciate a doorbell that works to eliminate some of that worrying. The Ring Doorbell 3 Plus is a battery-powered doorbell with video and two way talk, which sends a notification whenever anyone presses your doorbell or triggers the built-in motion sensors. You can also play a pre-selected response if you're busy — and keep an eye on who's coming and going (or dropping you off after curfew) through the Ring App.

The Mom Who Is Always on Your Case to 'Send Her That Photo'
We've all been tasked with sending photos to our moms at one point or another. If yours is anything like mine, she either takes matters into her own hands and screenshots your Instagram Story or guilts you big time if you forget. A wireless mobile printer that's small enough to fit in her purse solves everybody's problem and gives her plenty of photos to keep on the fridge.
Buy it! KODAK Step Wireless Mobile Photo Mini Printer, $59.99; amazon.com

Want to go the extra mile? Load it with the books you've been recommending to her and set her up as your friend on GoodReads. That way, you can create your own mini-book club.
