Mother’s Day is coming.
Sure, there are a little over 3 weeks left, but you may have a lot to do. You know…research, searching the stores, research, online ordering, changing your mind and/or realizing someone else bought that already, finding out she already bought herself that, researching some more.
Of course you can just ask. But then you’ll get hit with either the “I don’t know”, “whatever’s fine”, or the much worse “[insert exact detailed comments of what she wants]”. Yeah. Much worse because you’d have to get it if possible and if possible and you didn’t get it, then you just end up looking like a jackass. AND you’ll have a disillusioned mom on your hands.
If you have a geeky mom in your life (which may be the case since you’re reading this), here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas (which are also affiliate links, btw) to get your brain going as to what to get her this year.
I don’t know many geek moms (nor non-geek moms) who aren’t into Wonder Woman. Sure, Black Widow is great, Hawkgirl is badass, and Big Barda is awesome…but Wonder Woman is almost always THE female superhero among many women. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of her. Or maybe it’s because she is a ball of great, wrapped in a coat of badass, and topped with pure awesome. If that were to be the case, you can find quite a few Wonder Woman items to get your giftee.

Depending on how geeky the mom is, she may like either (or all) this Wonder Woman tank top, socks, cuffs, or necklace:
If geeky jewelry’s her style, you can of course buy something from our shop, or get her something like this Harry Potter-inspired necklace or this Dr Who-inspired bracelet:
Anybody can use a nice handbag, and personally I think Bioworld has the best geekiest handbags (and umbrellas):
Sites like Once Upon a Tee let you choose a design and place it on just about anything: t-shirt, tote bag, duvet cover, even a shower curtain! Some of our favorite “for mom” OUaT designs are:
Of course if the gift-getting mom is into tees, you may want to get her Once Upon a Tee’s subscription box: Month of the Shirt. MotS offers subscription boxes themed as Legend, Companions, Gamer, Fitness, Dragon, and Grab Bag. With the exception of Grab Bag, each theme offers a monthly t-shirt design not offered anywhere else before.
I hope this has given you a few ideas for Mother’s Day. You still have time. So go thinking and casually asking and I hope you give a winner this year!
