A Geek’s Guide: 7 Ultimate Science Gifts for the Nerdy Lady in your Life

This is a shout out to those who dare to be smart. For those who are intrigued by the world around them. For those who want to learn, explore, and constantly push boundaries. What Science gifts to do you get a nerdy girl?

If you’re lucky enough to know one of these people and have the HONOUR of presenting said person with a gift, then I hope you’ll consider these recommendations… and if you are the Science lover then… Treat yo’self!

So here are some of the best Science gifts, hand-picked by me!

Microscope Slide Necklace by Stoned Affection

I’ve not owned a microscope since I was a little girl. When I hit my teens I tried so hard to fit in that I ended up ditching that along with many other things I loved. These beautiful little slide necklaces remind me of that time… and are kinda inspiring me to buy another microscope and reignite that passion.

Conical Flask Terrarium Kit by Suck UK (Bought on Red Candy)

One of my 30 goals was to make a terrarium and my plan was to do it myself from an old goldfish bow. However, when I saw this at the National Space Centre I thought OH. MY. GAHD. I had to have it… and this is how mine turned out! What do you think?

Serotonin earrings by Present Indicative

Serotonin helps to stabilise our moods and keep us happy! A deficiency of serotonin can be a drag, so pass on some happiness with these serotonin earrings! Side note: It’s hard not to put the whole science range by Present Indicative on this list! Definitely worth checking them out for all things nerdy.

Brain Plushie by I Heart Guts

I doubt this lady needs more brains, but just in case, why not get her a plush one? I Heart Guts do all sorts of plushie organs (including more lady related ones too if you wanna get all biological!) So cute too!

Women in Science Nerdy Gifts
So beautifully illustrated and informative!

Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky

“Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers who changed the world” is a great gift for any girl who needs to see her strengths. Seeing how other ladies have conquered feats of science was uplifting for me to read and it made me feel close to women across history. I felt proud of their accomplishments against all the odds they faced!

It’s All in the Name of *hic* Science…

The Chemistry of Wine Glass by Cognitive SurplusĀ 

These wine glasses are super practical. They don’t have pesky stems so it’s harder to spill their contents all over your important notebooks full of science and such. With the chemical symbols for wine on the front, it just makes it all that much more classy.

Fibonacci Sequence Dress by Shenova Fashion

Last but not least, the dresses in this Women in STEM collection (although a little out of my budget) are SPECTACULAR. So amazing. My favourite is the Fibonacci dress. Perhaps one day I will treat myself to one of these if I have a particularly iconic party to attend, or need to go and accept a Nobel prize…

    Awh your terrarium looks so cute! I’m so glad you bought it in the end as it’s so perfect for you. I keep wanting to buy the “women in science” book because it’s surprising how little I know about them…
