I said I was going to try and start a new feature called "Who Says?" which is essentially all about discussion and sharing about fun things. So far, I've only had one post...sorry about that!! However, with Mother's Day coming up...
Who Says Mom's Can't Be Dorks?
It seems like most people come up with the same ideas for mom's on Mother's Day (May 12 in the U.S.) like perfume, a gift card, chocolate, flowers, jewelry, etc. But what if you're mom is a nerd/dork/geek? I'm sure they would love to get something a little more exciting and different!
One of my own gifts for my mom this year falls under this category, but I'm afraid I can't share until after May 12...since my mom reads my blog. I can't ruin it!
However, I can share some other nerd-tastic ideas moms out there might enjoy.
And remember: Share your thoughts! Moms, do you want a non-typical gift? Everyone- would you get your mom one of these gifts or something else more unique? Have you ever done so in the past?
ThinkGeek is certainly trying to help all your geek moms out there, by putting together fun packs with various themes. As you can see from the above photo, one such pack is all about Doctor Who!
You get- Tardis bath/beach towel, Tardis coasters, Tardis Acrylic Cup, and River Song's Tardis Journal!
Buy this whole set for $49.99 (originally $61.96)

Is your mom the only lady in the house? Maybe she's alone with your dad, or maybe all your siblings are boys. Whatever the reason, I think any "dorky" mom would enjoy this Fanny Rosebottom's Lavatory Mist to keep the bathroom smelling nice after those boys take over!
You can currently get this for $11.95 and it says it lasts for about 500 applications! There are other types of bathroom sprays, but those are usually focused more toward the guys. I think this is a perfect option for a mom with a good sense of humor!
Buy your Keep Calm and Write a Blog candle for $28!
You get a variety of scents to choose from, as well as other Keep Calm candle ideas. If you don't like anything they are currently selling, you can design your own through the site!
I know candles are something a lot of moms get for Mother's Day (or any other gift giving time) but these are a bit more unique and fun, and you know the person buying it really thought about you and your likes!
