16 Christmas Gifts For The Science Nerd In Your Life

11. Octopus Specimen

Specimens in jars - an absolutely essential part of any budding mad scientist's collection. This little guy is a real baby octopus, beautifully preserved for optimal freaking-your-mum-out potential. The specimens are ethically sourced, collected from fish markets before they are thrown away. The bottle also contains a little bit of quartz crystal which, according to the Etsy page "radiates positive energy and helps one to feel, speak and act more positively" which, if you believe that, you'll believe anything. New Age ramblings aside, this is the ideal gift for a biology nerd with a bit of a dark side. Get yours here.
