Nerdy Gift Ideas Part 3: The ever awaited stocking stuffers

Those reading my nerdy gifts posts #1 and #2 might have noticed there was supposed to be a #3... OK, so this post is a bit past the holiday shopping time, but to my credit, I got busy with the whole holidays thing. So anyhow, here, though a bit belated, are some good nerdy stocking stuffers:

What scientist doesn't want a voo-doo Albert Einstein keychain for extra smart luck? That, and he's just so CUTE!

Click on the title or this link to see the rest of the nerdy stocking stuffers!

Who doesn't want a pen that also functions as a USB drive and a Laser pointer? Of course, they're perfect for your favorite scientist traveling to yearly conferences...

Disease and family fun - it's the best of both worlds! Check out INFECTION: THE BOARD GAME!

"The first one to be completely disease free (or the last player living) wins the game"

I couldn't make that up.

Of course, every biologist loves to bring their work with them to show the world. And what travels better than a pocket microscope?? Then they can show you all the fun stuff that lives in your water or on your skin...
if you really want to know.

"Soap so smart, it doesn't have to smell pretty." Now that's a nerdy idea!

This one is a must if you have a neurologist on your list. A Brain Jello Mold - the ultimate nerdy party accessory. You can even make a brain jello shot - C'mon! You know that would be cool.

For those scientists who can't have a white christmas, get them some Instant Snow. It makes the holidays happen in any weather!

Because only a scientist neighbor would want to borrow a volume-of-honey-made-by-a-bee-hive-in-a-day's worth of sugar

Every year is a year for science, so commemorate your year with your beloved nerd with a yearly molecule ornament. This year is Menthol!

Let your favorite nerd show off their evolutionary prowess with the Evolving Darwin Play Set. It's like army men for biologists!

OK, that's it. If you have any other great gift ideas be sure to post them in the comments!
