This is the latest version of Amazon's Echo Show. It's perhaps one of the best gifts you could get a mom now because they can use it to keep in touch with friends and family during the pandemic. You can accept their video calls either another Echo Show or the Amazon Alexa app.
Also: Best smart displays
This model checks about every box they'd want for a smart display. It has Amazon's Alexa assistant built-in, so it works with smart devices like the Ring Video Doorbell. It also has an 8-inch HD screen with 1280 x 800-pixel resolution, a 13MP auto-framing video camera, and a built-in stereo sound with two 2-inch speakers.
If mom is nervous about letting Amazon have a camera and a mic in their home, they can disconnect the two far-field mics with the press of a button, plus the camera comes with a shutter.
Oh, and this Echo Show doubles as a digital photo frame! Mom can load up their favorite family photos and set them to rotate. Here is a support page that explains how.
