So its getting to be that time of year, so how about some suggestions to make life easier? We’ll start off slow with some simple ‘stocking stuffer’ suggestions. For this we have 2 criteria to qualify as a ‘stocking stuffer’:
1) Be under $15
2) Fit in a (knit) stocking
So let’s get some gift ideas out there!
Let’s start with a popular item, the Top Secret Perpetual Spinning Top! Give the top a spin and it will go for days before even thinking about tipping over.
Next up we have the Mini-Newton’s Cradle. It works just like its big brother (with conservation of momentum that is) but can fit in the palm of your hand!
The HexBug Crab reaches the limit in both price, and might stretch a stocking in its packaging, but it qualifies! This little guy comes to sound and flees from light!
The Ghost Writer Invisble Ink Pen is quite affordable and includes the UV light for seeing what you wrote!
Squidy is a perennial science favorite as it demonstrates pressure. Your own little cartesian diver!
Give the gift of…vomit? Sure, when it is a cool dissectible Owl Pellet!
Launch the Firefly into the air with the rubber band and it spins down to earth in a dazzle of colored lights!
That’s a good list to start with! We’ll have more suggestions as the holiday season progresses! Be sure to keep an eye on this blog for more gift ideas!
