Want to give mom a floral gift that lasts longer than a standard bouquet? Soho Floral Arts offers preserved “eternity roses” that last for as many as three years so long as you don’t water them. Amazon reviewers say the roses, available in four colors, really do last and are beautiful to put on display. That said, they also also note that these preserved roses don’t have the same smell as fresh roses, so you might want to pick up some rose oil to add fragrance.

These flowers make a great last minute Mother’s Day gift: The gift box delivers to many addresses in a single day.

Samsung ‘The Frame’ QLED smart 4K TV (2021)

Samsung via Best Buy

Wow mom with a brand new big screen. What makes Samsung’s “The Frame” smart TV so coveted is its built-in motion sensor that activates your device to display your favorite pieces of art in 4K resolution whenever you enter the room. 

That means long after you’ve used “The Frame’s” voice command to switch off an episode of “Real Housewives,” you can enter your living room and see a stunning piece from Renoir. And we mean stunning. This QLED TV produces 100% color volume in the DCI-P3 color space, which is the format for most cinema screens and HDR movies for television. (Translation: Colors on this TV will be more vivid and true-to-life.)

Amazon has Samsung’s 2021 “The Frame” smart TV models on sale right now.

If you’re gifting a mom who works and workouts from home, upgrade her home fitness journey with this indoor cycling bike. The Yosuda indoor cycling bike has a belt-driven system for a smooth and quiet ride, an adjustable non-slip handlebar and a tablet holder. Its LCD monitor tracks time, speed, distance and calories burned. There is a water bottle holder, and wheels on the bike, so that it can easily be moved.

Tablet holder for exercise bikes


This particular stationary bike doesn’t come with a tablet — that’s part of why it has such a low price point. But you can easily add your own tablet, such as the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet, $65, to this bike using an inexpensive tablet mount.

Bike tablet holder, $13 (reduced from $18)
