A few days back I had a conversation with a friend on scalar and vector quantities. The discussion started on commodity trading but drifted to the terms in physics.
My friend blurted out the definition of those 2 terms in verbatim to what must be in the school text books. That is when I got to know how much he is in love with physics.
His love for the subject made me think of making a list of some cool geek gifts. I am sure anyone with a penchant for wave or the quantum theories will love such stuff.
7 innovative gifts for physics geeks in this world
1. Humorous Physics Coffee Mug
I do not know why, but if I do not start a list with a kitty. Then, I do not feel good. So, this coffee mug takes care of my love for kittens.
It can also bring in a dash of humor in a physics lover’s everyday life. I am sure the caption on the mug might even make a physics repelling person laugh as well.
For the uninitiated ones, Mu is the coefficient of friction. It determines how strong is the conflict between 2 objects. Placing that in context with felines becomes hilarious. For sure it will bring a good laugh to all the physics nerds.
This handmade ceramic mug is available in 11 and 15-ounce sizes. Each mug has a glossy finish and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
The humorous image and caption are on one side of the mug. Printing is through a unique dye sublimation process. The dye develops strong bonds between the ink and the ceramic surface which last long. That could be due to a strong Mu between the ink and ceramic. I am not sure on that one, but a physics geek will know that better.
Also, you can enter a customized text to the mug for a personalized gifting experience.
Price: USD 13.99
2. Black Hole Physics Formula Cuff Links
Of all stuff in the universe, the mighty black hole intrigues me the most. How can a region be so strong to not let escape any radiation? Even when it traps radiation, it is still a black hole. Come to think of the irony in that.
Also, in the context of economics, a black hole is a slang for hawala. Much like its counterpart definition in physics. The Economic black hole is the sudden disappearance of money. High-risk trading instruments like forex and commodities may come under this bracket.
So, if you know someone who has an obsession for black holes. Then, these cufflinks with laser printed Black Hole formula will fancy them.
The formula is under a glass dome set on metal finish findings. There is an option to customize the metal finish. Silver, Gold and Antique Bronze are the options.
They are also water resistant, but not water proof. The diameter of each cufflink is 16 mm, and they come in a gift box.
They make an ideal pair as one of the best gifts for physics geeks.
Price: USD 13.99
3. Nikola Tesla Quote Aluminum Cuff Bracelet
After Stephen Hawking’s Black Hole cufflinks. Let us move on to another interesting physics gifts. A cuff bracelet with a quote from the great Nikola Tesla.
The aluminium cuff bracelet is a smackdown on Edison and his people. It reads – “I do not care that they stole my idea. I care that they do not have any of their own.”
If you are in a mood to give back to your rivals in the most satirical tone. Then, this bracelet with the quotes from one of the greatest futurist is for you.
Although this bracelet would work out as a physics gifts for her. But it has the picture of the legendary Nikola Tesla on it. So, it will work for any gender. Also, it is adjustable and fits almost any wrist size.
Its dimensions are: 6.625″ (length) x 1.625″ (width) x .045″ (thickness). This handmade product ships in a classy black velvet bag. So, it is ready for gifting.
Price: USD 25.00
4. Physics Humorous Definition Pillow Cover
This one is among the theoretical physics gifts, but with a humorous tone. Anyone with an obsession for physics will love this one.
The dimensions of this pillow cover are 18-inches (length) x 12-inches (width).
It is a 100% polyester material, so comfortable with a machine wash. It looks like burlap but is faux burlap.
Thus, this handmade pillow cover is minus the smell and lint that comes with real burlap. It has an internal lining and a zipper at the bottom for the pillow insertion/removal.
The quote is in matte ink and remains intact even with numerous washes.
Price: USD 29.50
5. Physics Humorous Definition Coaster Set
This coaster set is another addition to the humorous gifts for physics geeks.
It consists of 4 sets of coasters. Each of them is a square of 4-inches and 0.25-inches in width. The material is ceramic with a matte sandstone finish.
The tiles have a print of a humorous quote on Physics. Printing is through sublimation technology. Thus, it is resistant to smears and fading when it gets in touch with water.
Also, a cork bottom at their base provides friction to prevent slipping. I am sure a nerdy physicist will get that part well.
The set of coasters comes in a wooden caddy box. So, it makes one of the best nerdy physics gifts.
Price: USD 30.00
6. Physics Definition Funny Glass Christmas Ornament
Everyone shops for Christmas ornaments. Then, why not customize them with personal likes and dislikes.
If it is about gifting someone who studies Physics. Then, this Christmas ornament with a funny quote on the technical subject looks good.
It measures 4-inches in length x 3.5-inches in width x 0.13-inches in thickness.
The underlying material is thick glass. The printed quote is with a permanent, non-toxic ink. Thus, it will not run or fade.
