Pandemic Board Game

For Mother’s Day this year, give the gift of family time. Pandemic is a cooperative board game in which players join forces to save the world from disease. This is a great board game for moms who don’t like to worry about winning or losing by competing with their kids. Everyone wins or loses together, which makes Pandemic much more about spending time together rather than trying to one-up each other. Pandemic is also one of the highest rated games of all time on Amazon, so you know you’re giving a quality product to Mom.

Audio-Technical ATH-M50x Headphones

Mom’s love music, too. So why not get her an awesome pair of headphones that sound great, look awesome, and are durable and easy to take wherever she’s going? The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are a workhorse, providing a balanced sound that’s not over-tuned to thumping bass, but certainly not anemic like basic earbuds. They sound clean, clear, and they do a good job of blocking out the outside world so she can enjoy her tunes in peace.

LEGO Classic Quad Pack Building Kit

Add a bit of LEGO to your favorite mom’s special day. With these four diminutive kits, she can build to her heart’s content, either building the three included projects in each kit, or going off on her own and making something original. These kits are small enough to easily squeeze in some LEGO time, any time. (See full GeekDad review.)

Belmint Shiatsu Foot Massager

At the end of the day, what’s better than slipping of your shoes and enjoying a nice, firm, but relaxing foot massage? Make sure mom can share this enjoyment, even (or especially) if no one else is home! This massager will do the job with warmth, even pressure, and amazing shiatsu action all over the bottom of your feet. You can control the intensity and duration, but setting it just a bit high always bring those ow-ow-ow-AHHHHHH moments that mean it’s a really good massage. Also, larger “dad size” feet will also fit, in case you were wondering.

Scottevest Sandy Skirt

Mom often wants to or needs to dress up, whether it’s for her day job, a kid’s recital, or for the long anticipated date night. But she still appreciates having pockets. The Scottevest Sandy Skirt covers all those bases with a comfortable, soft, attractive skirt with several pockets to hold her stuff. With two zippered side pockets and two hidden waistband pockets, she’ll easily be able to carry a smaller purse, if she needs one at all. And, if your favorite mom prefers slightly longer skirts, check out the Scottevest Sandra Skirt. (See full GeekMom review.)
