35 Christmas Presents for Future Science Geeks

by Deb on November 30, 2009

This is pretty much my wish list, I’m sure it could get much longer!  There are things here for all budgets and ages, from stocking fillers to big presents, for babies to teenagers.

  1. Hat and sunglasses.
  2. Magnifying glass
  3. Balls
  4. Frisbee
  5. Calculator – I still have my letter to Santa from when I was eight.  I’m so grateful my parents took me seriously, I loved that little calculator.
  6. Camera – either a kid’s one, or a cheap digital with a tripod.  We’ve found a tripod gives great protection and they can’t drop it.
  7. Ant farm
  8. Mulberry tree – for future silkworms.
  9. Packets of seeds
  10. Shovel
  11. Binoculars
  12. Magnets
  13. Construction set
  14. Blocks
  15. Bug viewer
  16. Divided containers to hold collections, try craft shops for bead or thread holders.
  17. Homemade chemistry set
  18. Kid’s cooking equipment – most toy sections have some, also catering suppliers often have small implements or even normal kitchenware, eg a plastic jug.
  19. A rain gauge or the parts to make one.
  20. Playdough equipment – not just from the toy section, we have a cheap plastic cake knife and cooking things in there as well.
  21. Batteries, globes and wire (or an electrical kit)
  22. A hand mirror
  23. An outside thermometer
  24. Paints and craft gear
  25. Paddle pop sticks and toothpicks
  26. Telescope
  27. Bubble mix
  28. Torch
  29. Balloons
  30. Jigsaws
  31. Collecting bag
  32. Zoo or Museum year pass
  33. Diary, journal or notebook
  34. Books
  35. DVDs

What are you buying your little geek?
