Gifts for Engineering Moms  

1. A T-Shirt for a Proud Mom 

As the end of the Spring quarter begins to wrap up, gift your mom with a shirt that celebrates your accomplishments in engineering! This design has a 5-star review on Etsy and boasts fast shipping. You’ll also be supporting a small business if you decide to purchase.  


2. An Engineer Mom Mug 

Give a gift that will allow your mother to flaunt her engineering student. You could even pair the mug with her favorite brand of coffee or tea. It’s handmade and dishwasher safe, too!  


3. A Homemade Metallic Organizer 

Try a craft! If you need some inspiration or a step-by-step guide to making your mother an organizer, make sure to visit this blog. This is a great project to take on before Mother’s Day, especially since it will brighten up any space and add more organization to her life!  



Gifts for Computer Science Moms 

1. A T-Shirt for a Punny Mom 

This gift will cause any mother who has a computer scientist in their life to smile! Puns can never go out of style. Plus, there are five colors to choose from when you order.   


2. A Customized Coding Mug 

A handmade mug may be the perfect gift for Mother’s Day! You can order the mug as is or customize it to include your own message in code.  


3. A DIY Magnetic Desk Accessory  

If you have the time and resources, you could make your mom a homemade desk organizer. The entire project only requires three steps and uses a minimal amount of materials! You could even customize the organizer to remind her of you while she works.  


If these ideas aren’t what you’re looking for, you could always purchase apparel through the DU bookstore. Happy Mother’s Day to the moms and mother figures in our lives!
