Here comes Amazon….Here comes Amazon…Right down Amazon Lane….🎵
Just a little something to get you in the shopping mood!
The holidays are almost here! How is your shopping list coming along?
Last week, I was talking on the phone with my best friend (hello pandemic, I miss seeing friends!) and she asked me if my shopping was finished!?!?
If you know me, I am usually a “day before Christmas” kind of shopper. This year is a little different, since I’m relying on the mail to send most of my gifts. HELLO AMAZON!!!
To help you out this year, here is a list of my favorite “sciency” gifts to make the holidays a little brighter for friends and family.
My husband and I are both huge science lovers and these are some of our favorite gifts to give (and receive!).
If you are a science teacher, or just love science, I hope this list inspires you to have some fun with your shopping and spread some joy this year!
1. Live Succulent Planter DIY Kit
I absolutely love succulents! What better gift than an adorable clay animal planter with everything you need to create your own mini-succulent garden? Bonus – it comes with everything including soil and the plants! No need for your recipient to leave the house to enjoy this gift!
2. Science Themed Cookie Cutters
Wouldn’t these science themed cookie cutters make a fantastic gift to add to someone’s cookie cutter collection? Delicious and educational!!
3. STEM Family Battle Board Game
Family game night is a staple in our home! We love board games and this STEM Family Battle game is a great way to spend some screen-free family time! Plus, this game could double as some classroom fun!
What I love about this is that it includes two sets of stem trivia questions, so younger kids can play and enjoy too!
4. Science Art Prints
This three poster science set would be fantastic gift for the science teacher or science lover in your home!
Since they are standard size 8×10 prints, they can easily be popped into a standard frame and hung anywhere!
5. Double Helix Bracelet
Chemistry lovers, this one is for you!
This double helix bracelet is a fun way to make a fashion statement. Plus, the price is less than $15, which super budget friendly!
6. Periodic Table Tervis Tumbler
Say that five times fast! Have ever owned a Tervis tumbler? They are amazing!!!
I love that they are BPA free and double-wall insulated. This means that my hot coffee and afternoon iced coffee are always ready to sip!
7. Women in Science Calendar 2021
I’m not sure if this calendar would look better in my home office, or my classroom! But either way, I can guarentee that I can not wait to flip the calendar to 2021!
This Women in Science Calendar features incredible art of ground breaking female scientists who have changed the way we look at the world.
8. Minerals of the World Puzzle
Puzzles are 2020’s best friend, which is why I saved this gift for last!
One of my favorite ways to relax is to binge watch some Netflix and work on a puzzle. In fact, few things in life are more satisfying than snapping together pieces in a jigsaw puzzle!
Don’t let the 1,000 pieces scare you, if I can do it, anybody can! 🙂
