The mother of dragons counts as a mom!!

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 12 this year, which means you’ve got less than two weeks left to buy a thoughtful gift for the moms in your life. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with falling back on one of your old staples — who doesn’t like a nice candle? — but if you really want to one-up your siblings, we’ve got some better ideas.

Whether you’re shopping for your own mom, the mother of your children, or another maternal figure in your life, skip the trip to Bath and Body Works and try one of these unique and geeky suggestions instead.
