As Mother’s Day approaches, it’s time to take a look at what a ‘geeky mom’ would love to receive on the momentous occasion. From gadgets to creative solutions, we’ve got a few suggestions for those struggling to find mom the perfect gift.
Ah, yes, the Kindle Fire. It’s no longer just a hand-held eBook device. It’s now one of the most popular choices for women in electronics. After much speculation on whether eBooks will survive the tablet war, it seems that the Kindle is a must-have for a geeky mom. The Kindle runs a base of the Android operating system and you can install multiple applications or games from the Amazon Android marketplace. You have access to the Amazon Music Cloud as well as instantly play video with Amazon Prime or Netflix. This handheld is a must-have device for every mom!
A Date with the Avengers
Let’s say your budget doesn’t allow for the expense of the Kindle. How about a date night? The funny thing about Mother’s Day is that it’s the one day where moms can say, “hey give me a break, I need some mommy time!”
The Avengers is the perfect way to show your geeky mom you appreciate them. Mythical comic book legends surrounded by adventure is the ultimate geeky mom movie. Fortunately, it premiers this Friday, May 4th.
You can always go back to the traditional method of flowers. But, if you really want to melt the geeky mom’s heart, give her an AeroGarden. This indoor garden machine allows you to grow vegetables, flowers or herbs all year long! Purchase an extra seed kit to sweeten the deal. This gift will keep on giving all year long, and will truly inspire her to get in touch with her nature side. Not only that, the kids will enjoy participating with mom on this project.
Queen for a Day
Imagine your geeky mom’s excitement when she wakes up to breakfast in bed, complete with a hand-picked flower, gentle music and a foot massage? Appoint your geeky mom “Queen for a Day” and role play! The kids can wear medieval costumes and act as her court. Dress her with a new outfit and go for a lovely walk around the “gardens” (aka park.) Creativity and downright silliness will make any women laugh, and laughter is truly the best gift!
Feed Her Passion
Each mother is unique. Identify what your geeky mom is passionate about and look for gifts that reflect that passion. For instance, does your geeky mom love to game? Then buy her virtual coins, or a new game controller. Does she love music? Make a special playlist just for her. Creativity and spontaneity will always win the hearts of a geek.
Your pocket book doesn’t have to be tapped to show a mom how much you appreciate all she does. But, if you are out of ideas, buy her a nook or send flowers. You can’t go wrong with those options!
