Looking for a fun and unique baby gift with the geeky parents in mind?
You’ll find some really cute and unusual items at thinkgeek.com. How about a Superhero bib and bootie set, Star Trek onesie a quirky pacifier (cork, mute button or vampire lips), or my favorite, The Periodic Table building blocks?
Visit geekabyebaby.com for some unique bedding, bibs, clothes and more that will amuse all you gamers, rockers, and Doctor Who fans. Lots of options for customizing your bedding, baby hats and burp cloths. Who wouldn’t love a Yoda or Minecraft Creeper hat for their little one, or a Star Wars diaper bag?
Another fun site is babygeek.com for an Indiana Jones bib or the I Just Boldly Went onesie (pictured), which is absolutely hysterical. Or a baby-safe smartphone teether. And for those die hard Batman fans, you gotta see this over-the-top car seat!
Lastly, how about this for ingenious and practical? A portable high chair. It’s like a camp chair for your baby and it takes geek factor to another level – it’s brilliant.
Your geeky baby gifts are sure to be a hit at the next baby shower you attend!

Father’s day is right around the corner, and my sisters and I were just discussing what we’re going to get our father this year. It seems that, over the years, it has gotten harder and harder to find gifts for our closest family members. Last month, Kim did a blog post about great mother’s day gifts from Etsy, so I decided to check it out. The great thing about this website is that there really is something for everyone…and you find tons of handmade and unique items you won’t find anywhere else. Here are my top 10 Father’s Day gift ideas from Etsy.

I love when my family gives me unique gifts for Mother’s Day. Whether it be a handmade item that my boys made or a handpicked item someone else made, it always holds a special place in my heart. I love Etsy because you can buy things that are unique, and it has that craft fair or boutique shopping feel, as well as TONS of items to choose from!
I also love to pick some favorite things that my husband can help the boys purchase for Mother’s Day, my birthday, Christmas or just because! I keep an Etsy “wish list” that has lots of great gift ideas from artisans all over the world.
Here are some great gifts for your own mom:
