Geeky Gift Guide: Mother’s Day

Hello Collective lovelies! Katie here, and the time has come to show the geeky mamas in our lives just how much we appreciate them. Well, actually, we should be showing them every day….but ESPECIALLY this Sunday because it is Mother’s Day! Today I’m going to share with you some gifts that I think would be perfect for every different kind of nerdy mom out there.

The Nerdy Cook

For the woman who loves to cook, there are a plethora of great nerdy kitchen items out there, here a few ideas.

A Death Star Waffle Maker

Oh yes, you heard that right. It’s a waffle maker shaped like a death star, so your mom can feel extra bada** as she destroys (eats) it. The dark side never looked so delicious.

Nerdy Nummies by Rosanna Pansino


If baking something from scratch is more her tempo, get mom the Nerdy Nummies cookbook. Written by the hilarious Rosanna Pansino, this cookbook is filled with recipes to make you simultaneously drool and fangirl (it’s the Benedict Cumberbatch of cookbooks). 

The Geeky Fashionista

If your mom is into combining her geeky personality with her fashion sense (like yours truly), I’m sure you can find something from one of these stores that will make her want to strut her stuff on the runway.

Her Universe

The Her Universe online store is filled with amazing clothing items that help express your inner nerd! From light saber skirts to a tenth doctor dress, you’re sure to find something great for mom on this website. 

Literally ANYTHING From Geek Fashion Week on ThinkGeek

Drink every time I mention ThinkGeek in this post! Wait…actually…don’t do that! ThinkGeek has this great section called Geek Fashion Week that is full of trendy and nerdy clothing. Try to have some willpower as you shop here though because everything here on this website is so beautiful. 

The Fit Fangirl

For the mom who loves to work on her fitness, get her some geek-inspired workout gear and she will be even more pumped to hit the gym!

Active Apparel

Okay, I just got distracted for like 15 minutes on this site. So many funny and geeky workout tops to choose from! My personal favourite? The “Hakuna Masquata. It Means Nice Booty.” 


And if all else fails, just take her out to see Civil War this weekend! Maybe just try not to disagree over Cap vs Stark, okay? If you enjoyed this quick little gift guide, give this post a like and comment down below letting me know what you got your mom for Mother’s Day. I’m sending my mom a magazine I got signed by Jonathan Frakes (Ryker) at Toronto Comicon! See you guys next time!
