1. Upgrade her tech accessories to make her life easier.
You can save up to 52% on Samsung goodies at Walmart right now, including the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic and the Samsung Galaxy Buds2. Whether your mom is a total techie or not, anyone can appreciate a good-sounding pair of noise-canceling headphones. (Just make sure they’re connected to a Bluetooth device otherwise the noise-canceling function won’t work!)
If Mom is all set on headsets, the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic is also a good option, especially if she’s trying to be more active. The smartwatch can help her keep track of a ton of different habits like activity levels and sleep. While a smartwatch is no substitute for an annual check-up, I find mine helps me keep track of and quantify my wellness goals.
2. Find discounted luxe items at Walmart.
For a limited time, check out these Walmart Flash picks. Walmart Flash picks are popular bestsellers that are offered at a fraction of their cost. From cozy pajamas to a hydroponics garden kit, to a fancy towel warmer, you can find discounts at up to 48% off now.
3. Flowers are a tried and true classic.
It may seem cliche, but nothing says “I love you” like a beautiful bouquet. Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank for these budget blooms. And, in case you won’t be in town for Mother’s Day, many even deliver. Here are some of our favorite deals on flowers:
