Mother’s Day gifts that you can’t get wrong, including that purple iPhone and a hot pink Dyson hair dryer

Mother’s day is in just a couple of days time (it’s this Sunday) and unless you’ve planned some big gesture, you’re probably scrambling to find that token gift. But don’t settle on something mediocre, get Mom something she’ll actually like. Check these out.


The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini now come in a beautiful purple shade that Mom would definitely love. And any iPhone user will know that using this phone is intuitive; you’ll get less calls from Mom asking how to do this and that. If you order now, you’ll receive it before Mother’s Day.
