The Ultimate She Geek Buying Guide :: For This (and Every) Holiday Season

Tis the season, for what? Well that depends on you!

Some people like to reflect over the year around this time, others travel hundreds of miles to spend time with friends and loved ones, and others look forward to that sweet sweet loot. No matter how you spend this holiday season, gifts are usually a social obligation we can’t really avoid. Some people are super easy to shop for,  others are just really hard to shop for.

I’ve run a popular blog the past few years, and I find that people really dig my shopping guides. They are usually for me, but one year I did one for “she geeks”. This was a hit! (one of my most popular blog posts to date!) I got emails telling me THANK YOU! My lady/friend is so hard to shop for, and that was helpful! And other various praise.

So I have decided to compile one for The Gazetteers! Although these gifts are chosen with the feminine wobbly bits in mind, please feel free to get these for someone of any gender if you think they will enjoy them! Really who cares what gender you are, anyone can enjoy these bad ass gifts!

For the Mathematician!

Klein Bottle

Available a Acme Klein Bottle

Product Desription- At last, Acme has conquered topological and engineering frontiers to manufacture genuine glass Klein Bottles. These are the finest closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifolds sold anywhere in our three spatial dimensions.

These elegant bottles make splendid gifts, outstanding classroom displays, and inferior mouse-traps. With its circle of singularities, an Acme Klein Bottle can be said to exist inside of itself — especially handy during time-reversals.

**Just a note, I have bought from them before, it’s really such a treat when you see the package, open the package, and enjoy what is inside! This is a Kristin Pick for SURE!!!!**
