I don’t know about you, but more and more of my friends are starting to have kids. It’s awesome, having a bunch of tiny versions of your friends around, but once your friends enter into parenthood, their lives change. As their friend, it’s important to roll with the changes too. One of those changes would be the kinds of gifts you give them. After all, figuring out a solid gift that celebrates their new phase of life can be tough if you aren’t a parent yourself.
You want to give them something practical for parenthood–babies are expensive, after all–but a pastel baby onesie and burp cloth are just too generic. I’ve compiled a few awesome gift ideas for the geeky parent in your life that celebrates their unique, geeky loves, but also helps them continue to rock at parenting. Plus, if you’re ever gonna babysit the kiddo, you want to be sure you’ve got a solid diaper bag to use, cute outfits to dress the kid, and baby books that won’t make you want to poke your eyes out when you have to read them over and over again.
