This Sunday is Mother’s Day.
We all know that Mother’s Day might not be applicable to the woman who gave birth to you, but to any woman (or even man) who provided a maternal emotional connection in your life, Mother’s Day is a nice opportunity to acknowledge them and the influence and support they’ve provided in your life.
And while cards, flowers, brunch, candles, and perfumes are nice, here are some of our suggestions.
Word to your mother.
If your mom is a science junkie who has a crush on Bill Nye (and whose mother doesn’t) this quarterly subscription box service filled with geeky, science-y items personally picked out by Bill Nye himself, will more than likely earn you some get-out-of-jail-free points.
Which will certainly come in handy knowing you.
Show mom how much you love her Amazonian-like strength by presenting her with her very own pair of Chucks decked out in some serious girl power.
After-all, she’s a superhero for putting up with you.
If your mom is a yoga master but is getting tired of all the new-age music that seems to go hand-in-hand with the art of posed stretching, this CD (or digital download) filled with the themes from X-Files, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter and tons of other geeky movies and shows will make her happy to be doing downward facing dog for the millionth time.
When you combine mom’s nostalgia for the original girl detective with the love that she feels toward her phone (which rates higher than you some days) you end up with a nifty hand crafted charging station that is as unique as it is practical.
And in a mom’s world, that is a win-win.
Programmer moms will love to spend their work day downing copious amounts of caffeinated beverages from a cup that not only celebrates their computer nerdity, but also manages to look pretty damn gorgeous as well.
Which will certainly be a nice change from the Big Gulp cups usually decorating Mom’s desk.
Dads married to geeky Moms know the importance of giving the perfect gift. And really, is there any better way of showing her that you are eternally thankful that she ruined her vagina baring you offspring than by harnessing the power of Han and Leia in hand towel form?
No, I didn’t think so.
