Best TVs For A Mother’s Day Movie

Mum deserves the best and when it comes to TVs, that means a massive screen (we’re talking a minimum of 85 inches) with next-gen visuals.
“You can’t beat OLED for picture-perfect viewing in any room,” says John Milonas, The Good Guys Buyer – Televisions. “Every tiny pixel is self-lit, so there’s no need for backlighting. And if you really want to make this Mother’s Day special, spoil her with a Quantum Dot OLED screen for an unmatched explosion of true colour.”

TV With A Twist

Looking to gift her a full cinematic experience… in the great outdoors? You’ll need a portable projector for that! The latest projectors offer breathtaking pictures and sound and can move around your house or go anywhere with you for an instant movie night.

Don’t Forget The Snacks!

It’s not a Mother’s Day movie marathon without drinks and nibbles. An airfryer is perfect for crispy bites in minutes (spinach and feta triangles anyone?); and with an ice cream maker, you can whip up some homemade choc tops for Mum!
