This website, ScienceThrillers, is all about bookish gifts, and this week I’m offering a series of gift guides to the best titles for the science fan on your list. But geek happiness wrapped in a box goes far beyond the printed word. The people at DVICE (imagined by SyFy) offer the ultimate geek gift guide, including a delightful selection of 15 handmade geek gifts. The gift guide is expanding by the day, so check your list twice and re-visit.
Your name from the Periodic Table, available from crafters on Etsy.

And for the truly, profoundly bio-geeky: Petri dish soap (also available in glow-in-the-dark versions; Etsy, cleanerscience).
