Got a lovely nerdette in your life and desperately trying to sweep her off her feet this holiday season? I've got a few ideas that might bail you out...
If you can't think of a better way to show her how you light up when you see her? How about a T-Shirt! Well, this one, anyway. These shirts show a set of hearts that, when separated, are only half-lit. But magically, or, you know, scientifically, when the two are brought together the hearts on the shirt - like your own - light up!
Of course, nerdettes are still women, and there's a gift all women love: Jewelry. But if you're going to buy jewelry for a nerdette, why not get her something fine and following her passion? For example, you could get your favorite elasmobranch biologist a fossilized great white tooth pendant.Or, for your favorite botanist, you could surprise her with algae bloom inspired jewelry like the necklace on the right.
Still not your belle's style? Perhaps a simpler token of your affection is more up her alley, like the pendant to the left from Etsy seller NBDesigns. Of course, you could show your favorite chemist how much you appreciate her with a stylish periodic ring, instead.
But if you want to let her know exactly how you feel, consider one of these molecular pieces from MolecularMuse. Your feelings red-hot? How about the capsaicin necklace (right). Does she make you truly happy, just like seratonin (upper left)? Or perhaps you just want to express the love you feel with the chemical responsible for it in your brain, dopamine (lower left). You could also give her caffeine, chocolate, red wine, PEACE (in amino acids), or even acetylcholine, the stuff of dreams.
But, if you don't want to get jewelry, you could always buy her perfume. DNA by Bijan is right up any nerdette's alley! Ok, so maybe I only like it for the great name and cool bottle, but at least it seems nerd-worthy.
Otherwise, you could get your nerdette a stylish purse from Stitch Pixie. They have a perfect collection for your favorite developmental biologist featuring images of fertilization (right). There's also floral and faunal collections - so there's something for every nerdette!
I hope these help you hopeless romantics in love with a nerdy girl! After all, who wouldn't love a nerdette - labcoats are totally sexy!
Last but not least, soon to come: Nerd Stocking Stuffers!
