So if you’re reading this blog, there’s is a fair chance you haven’t already bought a Mother’s Day present. I’m not hating –just making an educated guess about the internet crowd who knows that shopping online gives them more time to pick out something.
Luckily I’ve come up with 4 fool proof gifts for the decreeing geek mom:
1. For the Mom who Lives Far Away — A Laptop.
I recently recounted the agony I of trying to get my parents on Skype. It took a week and still didn’t work right. They eventually bought a new laptop (since the old one was a piece of junk) which already had Skype installed.
For a great gift, save your mom and yourself some time and get them a Ready to Skype device. I know it may seem a little pricey, but if you add up the hours you will spend on the phone playing tech support, you’ll discover it’s actually not a bad option.
2. For the Zombie-Apocalypse ready Mom — A Can Tracker.
If swarms of undead are at your door, looking to feast upon your brain, don’t be caught with second rate survival food. Eat better than a zombie. Not only is a little can tracker like the one above inexpensive, but it will help you cycle through your food stores, ensuring what you have never goes bad!
3. For the Gamer Mom — The 8-Bit Flower Bouquet.
I have a saying: The family that games together, stays together. Show the leading lady in your life that you’re willing to spend your extra lives/hearts/continues for a bouquet of flowers just for her. Not just any flowers, but some old school retro flowers! (Rupees not excepted at thinkgeek)
4. For the Book Nerd Mom — A Nook.
This is another pricey item, but worth it. Does your wife keep you up at night while she rereads The Hunger Games? Help support her lust for teens killing teens for sport with a Nook. This one actually is slightly back lit so your partner can read in bed while you get the rest you deserve. Supporting her has never gotten easier!
