Confession… I’m a bit of a science nerd. I’m a total sucker for clever, nerdy products that are cool, but also serve a functional purpose. Check out some of my favorite nerdy gifts below!

 

  Have you heard of Soap Rocks?  Oh my goodness what a feast for the eyes (and the skin)!  The artist that created this line, Todd Pink, was truly the perfect person for the job.  After experiencing a lightbulb moment while looking at left over bits of soap, he was able to use his background in Conceptual Art, Geology, and Chemistry to create the objects of beauty that you see here!  And, by the way, they are completely functional and clean like nobody’s business.  Bonus!  They sparkle and smell amazing.

Another favorite nerd gift is the Solar Robot…  It claims to be for ages 5 and up, but I gave one to my friend’s son and I’m jealous!  I want my own.  This cool creature comes with solar panels, wires, a gear case body, and everything you need to start building your own personal bot.  Completely customizable, the rest of the design is up to you.  For example, you can use a recycled paper cup and forks for arms.  The possibilities are just about endless.  Plus, it’s a great opportunity to learn about recycling and alternative energy sources!  Wow.
