There are crunchy moms, wine moms, fitness moms, you name it– but if you feel like you don’t fall into any one of those categories, you might be forgetting the (arguably) most loveable subsect of them all: The nerdy mom. The nerdy mom is potentially the easiest to buy in terms of gifts. She collects limited edition accessories or has a drawer full of graphic t’s from her favorite fantasy genres. A nerdy gift can be just the right reminder that you love her, nerdy side and all. Participating in her favorite nerdy hobbies is as good as it gets for the nerdy mom, so whether she’s the one who first introduced you to your favorite nerdy hobby, or you bonded over a shared nerdy interest, here’s a great place to start when finding her a nerdy mom gift.
