Ah, love is in the air!
You know what that means… a new generation of little geeks and nerds are being brought into the world! I don’t know about you guys, but 2020 is an especially exciting year for me because my brother and sister-in-law are having their first baby this summer – and they are both nerdy as hell. It runs in the family. So, chances are that M. McCool is going to follow in her mommy, daddy, and Aunt Mandy’s footsteps and will become the greatest little nerd of the Alpha generation!
In honor of my baby niece and her big entrance in a few short months, I have combed through Amazon.com for twelve of the best baby shower gifts that will not only please the nerdy parents, but will bring that nerdy joy for the upcoming arrival!
Oh lordy, these are precious. And no – they ain’t just for boys! You can select between the 0-3 months or 6-9 months sizes for the tiny witch or wizard in your life!
