In preparation for Mother’s Day coming up tomorrow, we put together a list of gift ideas you could get for a Mum that plays video games.
Females take up the minority when it comes to gaming, so having a mother that understands what it’s like to game is a rare thing. Imagine a world where your mum understands you can’t pause an online game! Times are changing and the stereotypes for gamers have largely changed as well. Those that were hardcore gamers in their childhood and as adolescents are growing up and starting families now, making way for the next generations of gamers. Many of those gaming parents still find time to indulge in their love for gaming and it can often be a lot of fun to game with your parents.
My dad was the catalyst for getting me into gaming when I was a kid and he even recently played his first game of Fortnite. But my mum was never a gamer, she played Tetris back in the day but that was as far as she got. I know that when I have a family of my own I will definitely be a ‘Gamer Mum’ and I will be proud to hold that title and pass on my passion. So for all those gaming Mothers out there right now, what would they be getting for Mother’s Day? And I don’t mean mobile gaming where your mum got obsessed with Candy Crush that time either. If your mum is a ‘Gamer Mum’ here are some things you could get her for Mother’s Day:
For the Old School gamer with a sweet tooth
If she’s scary in the morning before her coffee
For when she wants to Snorlax
Anyone for mum’s famous Hyrule Pie?
Or would you choose this one?
Because she’s your mum for life
She will thank you when the world ends
You were probably going to get her a boring robe anyway
Pop Culture and Gaming can often intertwine, if she’s a proud nerd, have a look at some of these.
For the Queen of Wakanda
If the Force is strong with her
For when she loses to Thanos in Fortnite
For her secret stash of Polyjuice Potion
Because she’s the Mother of you Dragons
If she is less into the gimmicky gifts and would rather something she might actually use, try one of these bad boys.
She’s not a regular Mum, She’s a Console Mum
For the PC Master Mum
Of course in the end, like you, she would probably be very happy with a game. Consider something you could play together or take something from her wishlist.
