There is no life without science! The field has helped man to live by generating solutions for everyday life, and by simply improving the quality of life through scientific discoveries and advancements. This is the reason why our friends continue to pursue studies in the different branches of the field. Yes, science can be complex and multifaceted, but it is also enjoyable and fulfilling to learn! Provided here is a list of presents we can give to those who are passionate in science. There are also ideal gifts for children or teenagers who are still learning the subject in school.
Punny Chemistry T-Shirt
Students feel more confident when they’re wearing their favorite shirts to school. Gift your son or daughter this punny shirt that everyone in their class will notice–maybe they’ll even make new friends because of it! Oh, and did I mention that the shirt is CFC and carcinogen-free? This makes it the most ideal eco-friendly gift.
The Perfect Shower Curtain for Chemistry Students
If you’ve ever procrastinated for an exam, you’d understand that nerve-wracking feeling of facing the day not fully prepared. I’m not saying cramming is a good thing, but just in case you know someone who normally finds themselves in that situation, then this updated periodic table (which they can effortlessly scan in the morning) is the perfect gift for them!
The Science of Whiskey
Whiskey glasses make a great gift since they’re not as expected like mugs–though both are appreciated of course!

It shows the chemical composition of whiskey, and is a good conversation starter for those late-night drinks.
Anatomic Brain Coasters
These coasters do not have to be used just in the laboratory; they also work as decoration to make the dining room more interesting. Celebrate science and research by gifting your intellectual friends a set of these coasters! It’ll be fun clearing out the coasters since they form a full brain when stacked in order.
Coffee Mug for the Greatest Scientist
I’m not gonna say what’s written on the mug, but anyone who sees the text will definitely know who’s a great scientist! Give this to your friend who needs a bit of encouragement doing their research. It’ll keep them company during those long hours of studying with coffee, may it be day or night.
Gold Microscope Cufflinks
People don’t usually get 24K gold as a gift, but when they do, it’s easily communicated how much the giver cares about them. Gift your special someone this pair of microscope cufflinks, which is like no other. It’s even better if the recipient is a science enthusiast. They’ll surely love a luxurious geeky gift!
2D Erlenmeyer Flask Earrings
If you’re looking for jewelry to gift your friends who are into science, then they’ll be thrilled to receive a pair of these flask earrings. It’s not something that you see everyday, and it really suits the interest of scientists or just students who are learning that laboratory work can be fun too!
Geeky Infinity Scarf
Not into statement shirts? Not sure about how to flaunt your passions without overdoing it? You can subtly do so by accessorizing! This infinity scarf, for instance, is filled with molecular compounds and formulas which aren’t obvious when you look at it from a distance. It’s the ideal gift for science lovers and fashionistas out there.
Custom Name Wall Art Using Chemical Elements
We’ve all tried spelling our names using symbols from the periodic table of elements, at least once in our lives. Transform that idea into something creative by having a personalized name printed on a nice poster! It makes a great gift for chemists or friends who are simply into chemistry.
Fun Experiment Kit for the Little Scientist
Kids love doing pretend play either with friends or by themselves. The good thing about such activity is that they get to have fun while they learn! Start your children young by giving them a set of this experiment kit that feels realistic, complete with beakers and safety goggles that will prepare them for future scientific observations.
Colorful DNA Tree of Life
Interested in getting a watercolor art as a gift but afraid that it’ll fade soon? Fear no more! This print uses a special, pigment-based ink which will guarantee that your gift lasts for a lifetime–and hopefully your friendship does too! The amount of detail on it is impressive, and your science classmates or teacher will surely appreciate a stunning present.
Women in Science Mosaic
Women used to be underappreciated in science, and sadly they also went through a time where they were sparsely represented in their respective fields. It’s a good thing that people are recognizing their worth and remarkable works today! Inspire your female friends by gifting them this poster that showcases famous scientists with cute illustrations of their contributions to the world.
Unique Elemental Cubes
If you know anyone who has a science collection (could be figurines, things from fieldwork or the laboratory), and you want to add something interesting and unique, then you’re looking at the right page! These cubes are made from the element etched on each metal cube (aluminum, copper, etc.) and any science enthusiast would love to have one.
Cute Biology Stickers
It’s much more fun to plan and prepare for exams when you have cute stickers to use on your organizers. It might even make you excited for a major test that you’d otherwise be dreading! If you know any nerds out there who might appreciate this gift, then stop hesitating and either get one for yourself or your friends!
Fancy Science Keychain
When one item isn’t enough to flaunt someone’s passion for science, this keyring that holds multiple elements will do the job! Get your geeky friends one of these, which can be customized with their name’s first letter, as well as their birthstone to make it really special and unique.
Crown Badge for Science Queens
These pins are perfect for your awesome friends in science class! The great thing about gifting pins is that they can be worn in many different ways–on jackets, polo shirts, bags, etc. It’ll surely be worth getting something that reminds someone of their achievements in science, as well as something that matches almost any casual outfit!
Punny Socks for Your Geeky Friends
“Never trust an atom.” Why? “Because they make up everything,” obviously! If you laughed at this, then your friends probably will too. The best thing about gifting socks is that everyone of any age appreciates it. I’m sure you’ve had that moment too where you were late for class because you couldn’t find the perfect pair.
The Cutest Chemistry-Themed Cookie Cutters
We know that bakers like experimenting with designs and not doing things repetitively. It makes for a more exciting baking session, and it’s an added incentive to share their baked goods with others. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for geeky friends who love making pastries, these special cookie cutters will delight them!
The Most Clever Spice Rack
While these spice jars are labeled with ‘chemicals’, they’re not the literal element present in the spices so they’re easy to locate even for non-science enthusiasts! However, they still give off that geeky and classy vibe in the kitchen, so if you know anyone who wants to spice up their kitchen (pun intended), this is the perfect rack!
Breakable Geodes for an Aspiring Geologist
If you’ve seen geologists survey and identify rocks, you’d have an idea of how fun their fieldwork goes. A great gift for an aspiring geologist, or people of any age who are interested in science, would be a set of these geodes that will guarantee a realistic experience of what it’s really like to break geodes and understand their structures.
Colorful Petri Dish Soap
Shops are becoming more and more creative when it comes to soap designs, but I guarantee that you’ll never see anything as witty as this petri dish soap that resembles the ingredients and products from culturing microorganisms. It’s the gift that’ll make Biology majors laugh–I mean, who’d expect to see more samples outside the laboratory, right?
Wine Beaker for Moderate Drinking
Help a friend drink in moderation by giving them a measurable wine glass! It’s funny but it’s convenient and precise that way. You can even gift one to your science professor to show your appreciation for their patience and dedication to the class. Besides, it’s not that easy teaching such a complex subject!
