Along with everything else lately, Mother's Day necessarily looks a bit different this year. And if you're not quarantined with your mom, that means you'll have to get a little extra creative when it comes to finding the perfect Mother's Day gift.
Ahead, we've rounded up the best gadgets of the moment, ideal for every kind of quarantine mood — from noise-cancelling headphones (you know, to drown out the noise of whomever she's sheltered in place with) to a high-tech home bar that makes cocktails with the push of a button.
If you can't serve her breakfast in bed or treat her to a spa day, these are the tech and gadget picks we recommend this Mother's Day.

For the mom who needs her beauty sleep:
This new sleep support device helps you stick to a regimented schedule, including everything from reading time to wind-down meditation to white noise for sleeping to a gentle sunrise alarm eight hours later. You can program whatever routine suits you best, as well as the accompanying lighting to go with each stage. It's also sleek enough to display on your bedside table. And since it's just for sleep, there are no voice assistant capabilities or excess features in sight.
For the mixologist mom:
Drinkworks Home Bar by Keurig
Between now and May 10, Drinkworks is offering $100 off its home bar device. The all-in-one device can prepare over two dozen different types of cocktails (with drink pods sold separately) with the push of a single button. Pretty handy, given that it doesn't look like we'll be going out to bars anytime soon.
