'm probably not the best person to ask about Cricut products since I pretty much love almost all of them (Maybe you'd be better off asking me to rank them instead!). That said, I think Cricut Joy is my favorite by far. It's a great tool for beginner or seasoned crafters and has a really small footprint, so it's likely to simply gather dust. You can also use with the app from your phone or computer and create basic or intricate designs on card stock or even vinyl. There's also a wonderful writing feature so that you can further customize your new creation. Oh, wait. I thought this was about Mother's Day gifts. To be on the safe side, you should probably get one for yourself first just to be sure.

So if everyone is simultaneously streaming and mom wants to escape for a while, she doesn't have to worry about being out of range. ASUS XT8 ZenWiFi is part of what people who know more about routers than I do will explain is a mesh system. It's sleek and small, easy to set up, strong enough to seamlessly allow you to connect. Plus, this router comes in a 2-pack!
This is the closest thing to an actual shiatsu experience at home. This isn't a massager for lightweights though! It heats up and sort of feels like your feet are in soft warm socks...and then the power massage begins.
