Science Nerd Gifts for the Person who has Everything

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

There's a reason why American Science & Surplus is great for gifts - and that's because they sell things that nobody knew existed. Besides the telescopes, lenticular lenses, beakers and weird things in formaldehyde, they sell gifts that are soooo unexpected and will make any youngster, grandpa or aunt Phyllis gasp. Apparently the hot item this year is the Star Trek pizza cutter which totally took us by surprise. We totes thought the break-your-own-geodes kit would take best seller (rock hammer sold separately).
