What's new here?

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!
