Top Gifts for Moms

It's that time of year when we celebrate Geek Moms everywhere. Since often intellectual curiosity is handed down from one generation to the next, moms of geeks often display similar geeky tendencies. And while chocolates and flowers are lovely, like the ubiquitous World's Greatest Mom mug, they're probably not the most personal choice. Get your mom something she'll remember this Mother's Day - something that lets her geek out, too.

Exclusive Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set

Baking is sort of like tinkering in that you get to Collect All The Tools. Some moms enjoy baking, and for those moms we offer a geeky kitchen option. These are the measuring cups she's looking for. This set of R2-D2 Measuring Cups disassembles into 4 measuring cups + 4 measuring spoons and reassembles in a snap. Each has its measurement written inside so she can't forget what they are and handles on the back that don't distract from R2's aesthetic.

Handbag of Holding

Our Handbag of Holding is like a lot of moms we know: practical on the outside and crazy fun on the inside. The exterior of this organizing solution is a neutral taupe canvas. The interior is full of pockets for all mom's stuff and features a lavender lining. But don't listen to us. Listen to fan Angelina, "It's thick and hefty and will hold up and together for this mom of three who always hears 'Can you hold this, Mom?' 'Can you put this in your purse?'" If you know a mom who could use just a little more organization in her life, get her this handbag.

Plush Unicorn, TARDIS Boot and Doctor Who K9 Slippers

Moms always seem to be on the go: picking up kids from one place, dropping them off another, running to the library, getting supplies for a forgotten project at the last-minute. Sometimes she just needs a moment to put her feet up. Encourage mothers everywhere to take a moment out for themselves to relax with our TARDIS Boot Slippers, Doctor Who K9 Slippers, or Plush Unicorn Slippers for Grown Ups (which are guaranteed to make her mornings more magical). Stick in a certificate for one foot massage, and the next time you need a favor from Mom, it'll be that much simpler.

Soft Kitty Ladies' Bathrobe and Uhura Satin Robe

While she's got her feet up, maybe it's the right time for a bubble bath and then for her to curl up in one of our robes. Our Soft Kitty Ladies' Bathrobe is just like the little ball of fur in question: soft and warm. Our Uhura Satin Robe is a more slinky alternative for every mom who's always known she could man the bridge alongside Kirk and Spock. She pays the bills, goes through the snail mail, and answers the home phone. We could be wrong, but she sounds like your chief communications officer to us.

Wonder Woman Hoodie, Retro Scoop-Neck Ladies' Tee and Robe

Mother's Day seems like the perfect holiday to take a moment out to recognize what you already know: your mom's a superhero. She's the Wonder Woman in your family's life. Tell her so by giving her something that lets her show off her inner Amazonian princess, like our Wonder Woman Hoodie for layering, the Wonder Woman Robe for lounging around, or the Wonder Woman Retro Scoop-Neck Ladies' Tee, which we love to wear to work out. It gives us the motivation to One More Set.

R2-D2 and Darth Vader Fit and Flare Dresses

So far we've talked a lot about Mom lounging around the house, but let's be honest. She doesn't get to do a lot of that. Most times, she can't get away with jetting around town in slippers and a robe. That's when your Star-Wars-fan mom needs these swingy, comfy cotton jersey fit-and-flare dresses. Choose either the R2-D2 or Darth Vader dress depending on whether or not she needs to strike fear into the hearts of others (hint: the PTA meeting calls for Vader).

3D Unicorn Mug

Help Mom get going in the mornings with our rainbowtastic 3D Unicorn Mug. It holds 16 oz. of coffee, tea, or whatever she needs. Even empty, it'll bring a smile to her mug every time she lifts her mug (see wut we did there?), because it's covered with the goodness of unicorns. As an added part of her gift, why don't you wash it for her whenever you see it in the sink? That's like two gifts in one, because you're giving her less dishpan hands and more time to dedicate to her coffee consumption.

Super Mom Charm Bracelet

Jewelry tends to go over well on Mother's Day, especially if you pick out something that lets her know what she means to you. A great example is our Super Mom Charm Bracelet. You already know she's super. This gift lets her show it off to the world in a delicate and tasteful manner (not with another World's Greatest Mom mug). Plus, you can throw in other charms and beads that match what mom fancies, from steampunk to space, and Firefly to Doctor Who.

Plush Unicorn Bouquet

Or maybe you really want to get her a lovely bouquet for display. Cut flowers die so quickly it's as if you're saying, "Hey, Mom. Love you. Here's something you can look forward to cleaning up in a few days." But long-stem unicorns are forever. All she needs is a vase to display them in and voila. Mom's got a magical centerpiece, literally. This bouquet ships ready to gift and comes with 11 plush unicorns picked at the peak of perfection, hand-selected and arranged by your local unicornist (the only one we know of is in Ohio at our warehouse).

8-Bit Rose and Legendary Hero Heart Bouquet

For moms who prefer a bouquet that's slightly less magical but just as eternal, check out our 8-Bit Rose and its sidekick the Legendary Hero 8-Bit Heart Bouquet. Both are foam cutouts that come with cardboard fold-out stands for easy display, so Mom doesn't even have to dig out a vase. They're an especially nice way to say thank you to moms who spent hours playing Nintendo with you or let you play instead of doing your chores when you were a kid.

Doctor Who TARDIS Jewelry Box and Pi Firejewel Necklace

We've already talked about jewelry being a nice option, but what if the problem isn't a lack of jewelry but rather too much of it? Time to pick up the Doctor Who TARDIS Jewelry Box. (We hear it's bigger on the inside, but can neither confirm nor deny those rumors.) Or light up her collection with the illuminating power of math via our Pi Firejewel Necklace. You may already be a constant in her life, but she's allowed to have more than one.

WeWood Moon Ladies Watch

She's saved you any number of times. If her sights are set on saving the entire planet, maybe you can start her off with this watch. The WeWood Moon Ladies Watch is made of 100% natural wood, produced from scraps from the flooring industry that would otherwise be destroyed. The watch features a wood case, bracelet, and dial. Best of all, WeWood plants a tree for each watch purchased, so you can tell your mom you planted a tree for her, too.
