Celebrate Geeky Mom this Mother’s Day!

Celebrate Geeky Mom this Mother’s Day!

It can definitely be a struggle finding the perfect gift, especially for Mother’s Day. That’s why we’ve made the gift guide for geeky mom’s this Mother’s Day.

The first gift I’d like to suggest is Think Geek’s Handbag of Holding. It is a huge purse that leaves room for plenty of those items a geeky mom might need, like their Magic! the Gathering deck and bag of dice, with plenty of room to spare. There’s even a padded zipper area for your tablet or laptop! I personally chose this as my Mother’s Day gift this year, and I can’t wait to get it. Its a little pricey at $50, but doesn’t your mom deserve it? 

Next, I came accross this “Mom by day, gamer by night” t-shirt that I absolutely adore. Its perfect for any gamer mom. Yes, it comes in different types and colors, so you can find the right style for your mom! Right now its on sale for $21.99, making it quite affordable.

If your mom would rather celebrate together with you, or you happen to be a younger gift giver, the perfect gift for you might just be the book “Geek Mom: Projects, Tips, and Adventures for Moms and their 21st-century family”.  This is one of the few books geared towards moms, and if you’re looking for the opportunity to spend more time with yours, this gift offers that. Its a steal for $2.50 on Amazon for paperback, or $13.99 for a Kindle copy.

For the collector mom’s out there, Amazon offers a Game of Thrones Collectible Eggs set.The price is a bit high, at $99, but your mother will proudly claim the title of the Mother of Dragons… or just adore the way the eggs look on the shelf with her Daenerys Funko Pop. You could also get her the Pop! if you’re feeling giving, for $8.68.

Another good gift idea is “Exploding Kittens”, a card game you can buy from Amazon for $19.99. The game is highly recommended, and even comes with a NSFW edition and an expansion pack, if you’re looking to add to your Exploding Kittens collection.  

The final gift on our list is a strange one, to be sure. Think Geek offers a bouquet you can get your mother for $24.99, but instead of flowers it comes with body parts. Yes, it comes with 2 plush neurons, 2 tiny plush hearts, and 2 plush egg cells. 

While there are plenty of gifts out there available to get for your geek mom, there are plenty of other geeky ideas you could do your mother would be sure to love. Buy her a deck of your favorite card game( like Magic!) and teach her how to play. Subscription boxes are all the rage right now, and you could easily order your mom a subscription of something she likes.  Check out cratejoy.com to browse through the huge collection of subscription boxes available. You could even take her to a local gameshop to play on board game night, or go to a movie together (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 anyone?) 


There are so many gifts and experiences you can choose to share with your mom on Mother’s Day. No matter what you choose, she’s bound to love it!
