Family game night is easy with our sponsor Amazon’s Prime Now! Order up a new game, dinner and snacks delivered right to your door in just a few hours.

Next weekend is Mother’s Day. My only wish every year for Mother’s Day is to do nothing.  No cooking, no cleaning, no child rearing – literally nothing. It usually don’t work out that way because my children seem to forget they also have a father who can referee arguments. But you know who has my back this year on Mother’s Day? Amazon and their amazing, awesome, wonderful Prime Now service.

I got it in my head that I wanted to have a family game night for Mother’s Day. Playing games with my husband and kids is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening. But I don’t want to have to do anything, remember? So I used Amazon’s Prime Now to get a family game night delivered right to my front door in a matter of hours.

Family Game Night with Amazon’s Prime Now


Prime Now is a service Amazon offers exclusively as a benefit to Prime members. Prime Now offers super fast delivery on tens of thousands of items online and through a mobile app. I happened to find the toys and games category when scrolling through the app one afternoon while sitting on the couch watching a movie. It’s that easy.


I scrolled through the seemingly endless choice of family games and found one I’ve been wanting to try for years.  With a click it was added to my cart.

Prime Now isn’t just for games and toys. Prime Now offers tens of thousands of items across categories such as household items, groceries, electronics, gifts, seasonal items and more. Game night definitely calls for food.  We need dinner so I ordered everything to make homemade pizza. Prime Now also had frozen pizza available, but the kids love to make their own. We also needed snacks and popcorn is a family favorite. And since the goal is to do nothing, I also added in a package of paper plates so the dishes would take care of themselves.

If you are an Amazon Prime member, you are probably used to getting your items delivered within 2 days. Ah, but with Prime Now two-hour delivery is free, and one-hour delivery is $7.99. That’s right. Within 2 hours these bags showed up at my front door. And all I did was push buttons on my phone.


How cool is this?! Family game night and I didn’t have to leave the house to go shopping. It all came right to me!

Prime Now is also ready to help with Mother’s Day. Skip the busy store and shop for mom right on your phone or computer. In fact, Prime Now is offering fresh flowers starting on 5/13 for delivery to mom.  Or you can surprise mom with breakfast in bed with $0.25 for Starbucks coffee in select cities beginning 5/8 (limit 1 per order, while supplies last).

Since launching in Manhattan in December 2014, Prime Now has grown rapidly to more than 30 cities in the U.S. And the good news that as long as mom lives in one of those cities, Prime Now will deliver her flowers or gift right to her door step.

Amazon Prime Now would love to help one lucky reader give their mom an amazing Mother’s Day by winning a $100 Amazon Prime Now Gift Card! The gift card can only be used on Prime Now, which is only available in 30 U.S. cities.  If you or Mom live in one of the cities, enter below to win!

    I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer just over 2 years ago, she was the most amazing mom and my best friend! I miss her so much but she was always the most positive person I have ever known! Never once did she complain about her cancer even knowing that she would not beat it and facing her end- she faced it with such dignity and grace- I am humbled by the fact that I got to be her daughter! Now I just try to be even a shadow of the mom to my kids that she was to me- she left some mighty big shoes to fill!

    I so appreciate how my Mom, in her death from metastasized breast cancer, taught her daughters the most important lesson of all……take care of yourself and take action on any preventative opportunities in life’s journey. Your life is not a dress rehearsal….once death has claimed your body there are no do-overs.

    I love and miss my mother. She raised five children. Always there to listen, teach and give constructive conversation, she was the best. I was with her when an illness took her life at 82. I thought she would live to be 100 but God knew best. When I became a mom, she was there to guide and mentor. I know she is a shining star watching over me.

    I love that my mom always made an effort to be involved in our lives, especially while my dad was in the Army. We traveled a lot, lost friends moving every 3 years as part of his job. But my mom always made sure we knew we were a team.

    What I love most about my mom… Well I can honestly say that I cannot choose just one thing I love about my mom. My mom is my best friend. When I got pregnant at 15, I thought for sure my mom would make me drop out of school to take care of my son full time. What really happened was she helped me every step of the way. She refused to let me drop out. She took care of my son while I went to school and work. She made it possible for me to graduate from high school and college. I wouldn’t be who I am today without everything she has done for me. My mom is simply amazing. She’s my mother, my best friend, my hero.

    One of the most special motherly figures in my life was my Grammy (my great grandmother). She’s not longer with us but what I loved most about her was that she always had time for her grandkids. She would read to us and play with us and, well, just loved us the way grandmothers do. When I think about being a grandmother myself, this is how I hope I am with my future grandchildren.

    I used Prime Now for the first time on Monday and LOVED it. It was my wife’s birthday, and time got the better of me, so I hadn’t had a chance to get out and pick a thoughtful gift. I hopped on Amazon Prime now, picked out two books she had on her “want list” some dark chocolate, and even bought a gift bag to put everything in!
