Some moms like flowers and jewelry. Others, like watching the crew of Enterprise explore unknown spaces and make contact with new species. For the latter, I have the best Mother's Day gifts. After all, they deserve some gifts after all the love they've given.
Lwaxana Troi said it best:
"No parent should expect to be paid back for the love they have given their children." - Timicin
"Well, why the hell not?!" - Lwaxana Troi.
I know you love your mom more than anything in the galaxy, but finding a perfect gift can be hard. So, I'm making it easy for you.
These are the ultimate Mother's Day gift ideas for the best mom in the quadrant.
We all want our moms to "live long and prosper," not just Vulcans. This mug is just a reminder of that.
Moms have a lot on their minds and on their plates. So, it makes sense they want to get away every now and then. You might think they're listening to you complain about your coworker, but really they're picturing themselves in the Captain's chair.
If your mom is more of a wine person, these glasses are perfect. After a long day, they'll come home, get some dinner, pour their favorite wine in these iconic glasses, and watch their favorite show in their favorite streaming service.
It sounds like the perfect night.
Future moms deserve gifts too. This maternity shirt is adorable, and lets others know that your kid will be smart and talented.
Although, it does put some pressure on the baby.
Your mom never lets you forget that they were into Star Trek before you could pronounce Kirk.
Now, she doesn't have to say it because her mug does all the talking for her.
If she's always on the go, she needs a good travel mug. She will appreciate this stainless steel insulated travel mug. Plus, it's Federation approved.
Although she's not technically a mom, Captain Janeway is an inspiration for many women. She was like a mother to the whole crew in Voyager.
And, her love for coffee is incredibly relatable. The finest organic suspension deserves the finest cup.
Any mom with teenagers has felt this. She will wear this t-shirt and give you the biggest eye roll, but she still loves you.
You know your mom is the greatest mom. And, just calling her the best mom in the world is not enough.
The alpha quadrant is more accurate.
Moms need to unwind too. And, some are more into cocktails than wine. If that's your mom's case, this flask is a great gift. Just make sure she doesn't sneak it into parent-teacher conferences.
If there is an episode that highlights the importance of family in TNG is "The Inner Light". This beautiful pendant will remind your mom of all the beautiful memories your family has created, and how much you treasure them.
If she likes to wear her heart on her sleeve maybe she can wear the Enterprise around her neck. It's another way for her to keep her favorite series close at all times. And, jewelry is more special coming from family.
Happy Mother's Day!
