Mother's Day is a time to give back to the moms and mother figures in our lives, the ones who always gave what they could for us. Our moms, aunts and grandmas made sure we had all the necessities and taught us all the life lessons. However, many moms also love to share their interests and hobbies with their kids, especially geeky moms! Did your mom take all the pictures when you were finally old enough to hold your first lightsaber toy? Were your bedtime stories some of her favorite Marvel comics? If your nerdy mom set you on the path to pop culture prowess, perhaps you'd like to peruse this nerdy gift guide for mom!
