Mind of Modern Man and ThinkGeek Pop Culture Journals Review

Check the calendar, guys! Mothers Day is coming up. What are you doing for your mom and/or spouse?

Flowers? Done that. Dinner? Done that. Jewelry? Done that. Photo of the kids? Done that.

Think about what you want for Fathers Day. Do you really need a new coffee mug or tie or golf towel? Those are too easy. We want something we’ll really use – right?

So do Moms! Not a kitchen utensil. Not cleaning supplies.

A popular gift these days are really nice journals. I use hard cover journals all the time. I currently am using one with R2-D2 it and have some other fun ones stored up to use next.

How about some fun journals for Mom? That’s where ThinkGeek comes in handy this year. They sent us three of their editions to check out and let you guys hear about.

Fun covers featuring Wonder Woman, Willy Wonka and the hit book The Happiness Project.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

In my eyes, mothers are the epitome of Wonder Women. They must have super powers to do all they do. This journal will appeal to DC/comic fans. It will also appeal to anyone who loves strong women.
