Dyson Outsize Total Clean: $1,299
Now we wouldn't include cleaning products in a Mother's Day gift guide unless they were pretty fancy, which this Dyson Outsize Total Clean most definitely is.
Vacuuming doesn't seem like much of a chore with this bad boy in tow; it can sense when you move from hard floors to carpet and automatically changes its suction power for maximum cleaning.
Plus this model comes with a new tool specifically for long hair and pet hair that stops the hair from winding its way around the vacuum head, and it has a run time of up to an hour, and massive bin, so you can easily do the whole house without worrying about losing power.
Another fun cleaning toy is the iRobot Braava mop; you can retire the bucket and mop and sit back with a wine while this little guy goes to town on your floors.
It uses sensors and a camera to map your space and navigate its way around obstacles so all you have to do is fill it with water and let it do its thing. Plus if you already have a Roomba i7+ robot vacuum, then you can program them together to run one after the other.
