It’s that time of year again when we say thank you to the mothers and mother-figures in our life. Last year I highlighted the unique Geeky Mother’s Day Cards that are perfect for the geeky mum in your life. This year I’m taking it one step further with a full gift guide for every type of geeky mum I can think of! From gamers to stationery lovers and everything in between there’s something for every geeky mum in this one!
If you’re not already familiar with Etsy it’s the home of handmade and vintage products, helping you add that special touch to your gifts.
