Mother's Day gift ideas for geeky moms

Updated on May 24, 2013

Geek gifts for a nerdy Mother's Day 2013

Mother's Day is coming up! Gamer moms and nerdy mothers are super cool, however it can be hard to find presents for them if you are not a geek yourself. Don't worry though. I have put together a list of great geeky presents that are perfect for Mother's Day gifts or any other occasion where you want to buy your mom something special.

The best thing about these geeky Mother's Day gift suggestions is that they are alll unique and will show your mom that you really thought about her present.

My compilations includes nerdy flower bouquets, great geeky cake baking items and of course some beautiful jewelry that any girly geek will appreciate.

Mother's Day is a time to treat the mom as a queen and you can do that by buying her presents that relate to her geeky interests.

In the UK Mother's Day is celebrated on the 18th of March and in the US on May 13th, get your presents in good time so you can surprise the geeky mother in your life with a gift she was not expecting.

Plants vs Zombies Sunflower Plush Doll

Give your mom a different kind of flower for Mother's Day. One that she as a true geek will really appreciate and one that lasts much longer than normal boring flower bouquets.

This cute little Sunflower plushie is from the very popular Plants vs Zombies computer game. If your mother is a gamer geek she will most definitely love this present.


Geeky Flowers, Bouquets and Plants

Flowers and Bouquets are traditional Mother's Day gifts that never fails, but what if you are dealing with a geeky mom? I have found a list of great geeky flowers that will be a certain hit for a nerdy Mother's Day.

Flowers for geeks say I love you mom just like the real deal, but they don't wither and the choice will show your geeky mother that you understand and know her.

The nerdy flowers listed here are not only geeky, they are also very unique and creative.

And ehm, just for some variation, there is a few fruits and vegetables as well. (I just couldn't leave out all the super cool and cute Plants vs. Zombies plush toys).

Lego roses on eBay

Show your mother your appreciation by giving her one of these creative LEGO flowers. They work for almost any mother, because secretly, they are all LEGO nerds.

T-Shirts for moms who are geeks

Do you want to surprise your mother with a T-Shirt that lets out her geeky side? Then why not go with one of these. I particularly love the binary mom one that spells out... well you guessed it "MOM" in binary.

The T-Shirts all come in many different color schemes and in varying cuts and styles, so you can pick the one that fits your mother best.

Portal Cookie Cutter

A geeky mother will love to serve cookies made with these cookie cutters.

Imagine being able to bring Portal to the table when the entire family is enjoying an evening together. Very cool gift for any gamer geek and a creative idea for a mother's day present if the receiver is a bit of a gaming nerd.


Harry Potter candle for the wizard nerds

This little candle in a cauldron is perfect as a gift to any mom who is fascinated with wizardry, magic or just Harry Potter in general.

Light up the face of your mother with a geeky candleholder that she can put on the table for boardgame nights or just when the whole nerdy family gets together to enjoy each others company (and maybe some cookies made with the geeky cookie cutters featured futher down in the article)


Mother's Day Jewelry gifts for geeks

Any geeky girl or women will appreciate these nerdy jewelry pieces.

I don't know any female Lord of the Rings fan who would not love a piece of elven jewelry and the chocolate/coffee molecyle necklace pendants are perfect for science geeks.

Pink Butterfly in a jar

This little gem will add beauty and life to any geeky living room and it will do so without requiring much effort from the owner.

It is fascinating to watch the butterfly flitter around in the jar. It looks very lifelike, but no animals are harmed with this funny and geeky gadget.


Invader Zim handbag featuring Gir

You will be hardpressed to find anything cuter than Gir, the robot dog from the Invader Zims series that ran on Nickelodeon. While the cartoon was technically made for kids, any geek with respect for themselves will love the crazy alien invader Zim and his silly sidekick Gir.

Perfect bag and Mother's Day gift for a cartoon geek.


Comic book picture frame

This picture frame is the perfect way to allow your geeky mom to showcase your nerdy family pictures. The frame itself is divided into 6 smaller comic book picture frames to look like a page from a comic book. The showcase display comes with a sticker sheet full of speech bubbles and text boxes so your mother can add funny comments to each picture in the frame. If your mom is a comic book enthusiast then she will love this for Mother's Day.
