It's Mother's Day weekend, which means if you still haven't gotten a gift for that mama in your life, now is the time to hop to it. 

No need to wig out — Amazon is having a huge sale on just about anything that could bring a smile to her face. Is she big into smart-home stuff? Has she been complaining about needing a new TV for her bedroom? Maybe she's on the hunt for new skin care products (really, who isn't?). Either way, you can scoop up all that and more for low, low prices this weekend. Plus, whether you're a mama yourself or not, you can treat yourself to something nice and new, too (and no one will even know you saved a few bucks in the process, too).

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Don't panic; you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Ready? Set? Let's shop!

Ready to turn your living room into a binge-watching paradise? Have we got a deal for you! Right now, Amazon has this Toshiba 50-inch Smart 4K Ultra HD — Fire TV Edition on sale for $350, or a cool $80 off its list price. That’s a nearly 20 percent savings!

Because it's a Fire TV Edition, it allows you to stream movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, HBO Max, Disney+, Apple TV and much more without buying a separate streaming device. In fact, this TV even has Dolby Vision support built-in for the best 4K video streaming available, as well as DTS Virtual-X audio for a movie theater-like experience at home.

Even better? Alexa is included. So if you’re sick to death of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles, you can just ask everyone's favorite digital-age Girl Friday for the movie you want, and she’ll make your wish come true.

"I'm truly impressed with the capabilities and quality of this television," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "It was easy to set up and linking it to my Amazon and Hulu accounts was a breeze. The remote control can be voice-activated and has buttons for apps on it...It works great as a computer monitor and also has a handy USB port on the side. After a month of owning it, I can honestly say that I'm 100 percent satisfied and happy that I purchased it."

Hint, hint: Moms like to rock out and listen to podcasts, too! On sale for $80 (was $130), the Beats Ep headphones deliver their trademark outstanding audio via a 4-foot cable, which is liberating in a very important way: no need to worry about battery life! Just pop them on, plug them into a phone, tablet or laptop (or anything with a 3.5mm jack, for that matter) and kick back without ever thinking about charging.

That makes for some serious peace of mind if you do a lot of your listening at home or in the office. Wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer, "Better sound quality than other brands — and more reliable than wireless."

On sale for $65 (was $90), the Fire HD 8 tablet has a brilliant eight-inch HD display and works with Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Music, as well as hundreds of social media apps, games, and more. Trust us, you’ll be spending a lot of time binge-watching on this HD stunner, especially with its 10-hour battery life.

"This HD 8 boots up extremely fast. The screen movement is very smooth," wrote a delighted tablet user. "I own an HD 10 but I like this better because the size makes it easier to hold and maneuver. It is much lighter than the 10. I had a concern about the sound quality, but the sound quality is very good. The charge time is fast and the battery holds a charge for a long time."

Know what else Mom will appreciate this Sunday? Keeping the grandkids out of her hair at the family gathering. In this madcap crossover adventure, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) to save all of the Mushroom Kingdom from chaos and danger when a group of not-so-friendly Rabbids invade.

The award-winning role-playing game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for the Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — delivers a wild co-op game that’s full of strategy and puzzles with new weapons and attacks that are fun for new and old Mario fans, alike.

"This game came far out of left field," raved a delighted gamer. "Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over nor under-powered, and great artwork. The plot is horribly contrived but who cares? My three-year-old was riveted with every battle and she'd be the one composing the team..."

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is on sale for just $20, or $40 off, on Amazon. That’s a whopping 67 percent off!

"...We can get on our cellphones and turn things on ahead of time so our rooms are the temperature that we want when we go to bed at night. These seriously are the smartest little plugs. I will be buying more of these for other rooms of the house."

Q: Who's tired-er than anyone of cleaning floors? A: Moms! The Kyvol Cybovac E20 Robot Vacuum Cleaner — on sale for $146, or $30 off — can suck up dirt, grime, crumbs and pet hair like nobody's business. It'll run for 150 minutes per charge and can tackle all sorts of surfaces, like hardwood, carpets, rugs and tile. It's basically the jack-of-all-trades of floor cleaning. And some shoppers prefer it to iRobot.

"Absolutely love this!" said a very satisfied customer. "We got a Roomba for Christmas and were never huge fans. It was loud, didn’t clean well, and got stuck often under furniture. We decided to check out this brand after seeing an ad for it, and I noticed a difference within the first 10 minutes of it running.... It cleans better, it runs better, it’s much quieter, it fits under furniture without getting stuck, and best of all it cost less. Our Roomba sat unused for two months because I didn’t feel like it did anything. This is being run once or twice a day."

Working from home can be tough, especially if you're hunched over a laptop all day. However, help is on the way for your neck, shoulders and back with the SoQool Laptop Riser for Desk, on sale for just $18, or $72 off, at Amazon. That's a ridiculous 80 percent savings!

It's specifically designed to get your laptop off your (actually, physical) desktop and raised to eye level, so you're not spending your day hunched over like a Dickensian clerk. It's made from aluminum and ergonomically designed to cool your laptop with clever ventilation openings.

"My wife needed a laptop stand since she is now working from home — she needed to raise the laptop up for ergonomics and also because her work laptop often overheats," shared a happy spouse. "I looked at several with adjustable heights, etc, but I chose this for simplicity. It requires assembly but includes the four screws and hex wrench needed, and is so easy a three-year-old can do it (literally — my three-year-old did it). The stand is made of high-quality metal and does its job well, and it looks elegant. It has nice stability, and the ends are curved up to keep the laptop in place. The height is just right for my wife's workspace!"

"I got this bed for my home office so my dog would have a place to curl up as I work from home," a shopper shared. "Um...he is obsessed with this bed and will choose it over his other beds now, even his special orthopedic one. He curls up and snores for hours, and he seems to be insanely comfortable. Every time I look over at him he is fast asleep and looking super content."
