Because it's Way Cooler to be a Geek

baby onesie

A few months back, I wrote about how many modern parents think it’s cooler for their kids to be math nerds or science geeks than to roll with the “in-crowd.” And although us parents might judge “coolness” as being proud of our intelligence and not blindly following the pack, our kids will one day think it’s cool when they’re raking in the dough and saving the world.

And if you know a nerd-loving parent, there’s no better baby gift than one that instills that interest and passion. While I still love all of the “geek baby” gift ideas I featured back then, I found another great resource for parents who believe that geeks are the new jocks:

The Etsy shop Katy and Zucchini makes a variety of baby clothes that are just perfect for the next generation of geeks:

Albert Einstein Toddler Shirt: If the Einstein image on the front isn’t clear enough, the formula on the back sure gets the message across. ($16) They also make Ben Franklin (top of the page) with a kite on the back, Sir Isaac Newton with an apple and Thomas Edison with a lightbulb.

Don’t even dress your boy in blue baby clothes. This way, when people ask “Is it a boy or a girl?” you can actually make them feel as unintelligent as you always wished you could. They also make an XX chromosome onesie for girls.  ($15.50)

Pocket protector onesie, $15.50.
