A few gifts that (should) arrive on time
For book-loving moms, the latest Kindle Paperwhite is the ideal gift. She can lounge by the pool reading for hours without worrying about running out of battery, as the waterproof e-reader offers exceptionally long battery life. That’s in addition to other perks, including a 6.8-inch display that’s bigger than its predecessor, a USB-C charging port for easier recharging, and adjustable color temperature.
Regularly $139.99, the ad-supported model is selling for an all-time low of $99.99 at Best Buy with free next-day shipping to boot, while Amazon has it for $104.99. Just note only Amazon Prime members will receive the gift in time without having to pay extra. Read our review.
