As the holiday season approaches and secret santa groups gather, we find ourselves in the season of exchanging gifts. While people often shop for video games or new clothes, science-themed presents allow for a spark of curiosity and innovation to gift-giving traditions. This festive season, embrace the joy of exploration. Share the gift of knowledge, with presents that go beyond the ordinary. Here are the top science-themed gifts for the holiday season.

Gift #1: Full Computer Kit ($100)

Since modern technology is so user-friendly, people may find it challenging to comprehend how common technical gadgets operate. From retro gaming to DIY projects, the Raspberry Pi 400 keyboard opens the door to a universe of possibilities.  It provides a user-friendly platform for programming, tinkering, and learning. Even if you are a Python pro or just starting, this is an amazing gift for anyone as the compact design makes it ideal for portable projects, allowing you to unleash your creativity wherever inspiration strikes!

Gift #2: Arduino IDE Starter Kit ($32)

Are you new to coding and circuits? Unlock your creativity and dive  into the world of electronics with the Arduino IDE Starter Kit. This kit includes an in-depth guidebook that provides step-by-step instructions for projects that allow you to learn at your own pace. From blinking LEDs to robotics, this kit is designed to grow alongside you. Explore sensors, create displays, and dive into the endless opportunities offered by the Arduino ecosystem. Whether you’re shopping for a technology enthusiast, student, or hobbyist, the Arduino IDE Starter Kit makes for a gift that combines education with excitement.

Gift #3: Smart Four ($53)

Everyone loves a good board game no matter their age. The Smart Four is a board game that puts a twist on the classic “Connect Four,” with its system that provides the option of either playing with another human or pitting yourself against its very own AI! The AI system has three different difficulties, so you can practice against it until you master the most challenging levels. In addition to its AI player implementation, Smart Four also has a built-in “referee” system that records all moves, with its pressure-sensitive buttons, which makes sure players are on task during their turn. Either way, this gift will keep you entertained while passing the time without any screens or social media. 

Gift #4: Proven Skincare ($60-$120)

Want to rejuvenate your skin to its shiniest and clearest potential? Proven Skincare harnesses the versatility of AI with its product-ingredient-matching algorithms trained on user reviews, and creates unique skincare routines comprised of moisturizers, cleaners, and creams with case-specific ingredients in each one. Because they’re made to suit the person’s skin only, it is a very trustworthy and effective way to find your ideal skincare setup and get perfect skin. 

Gift #5: Periodic Table ($36 – $50)

Many might describe chemistry as boring but this gift may change your mind. The Periodic Table Display allows one to visualize chemistry in a fun manner. It contains small samples of eighty-three real elements encased in transparent acrylic material. This item is perfect for introducing one to science and chemistry. 

Gift #6: Smart Notebook ($32)

Aren’t you just tired of lugging around your heavy backpack every day? This simple yet efficient smart notebook is perfect for taking many notes without having the hassle of carrying them around. These notes can be scanned and uploaded to the cloud and are eco-friendly!  A quick wipe with the special micro-fiber towel provided is all it takes to erase your work. Thison-the-go device is perfect for people who have sudden sparks of creativity or travel a lot.
