Do you have a physicist in your life that you’re struggling to find a gift for this holiday season? If you’ve watched The Big Bang Theory before, you know how uniquely complex and fun physicists can be on television, but what about in real life? Do all physicists love comic books and science fiction like the characters on the show? Possibly, but when it comes to finding the perfect gift for a physicist, why not get them something that celebrates the very subject that they’ve dedicated their lives to: physics.
Whether they're unraveling the mysteries of the universe or immersed in the fascinating realm of particle physics, we've curated a collection of gifts that will have even Schrödinger's cat purring with excitement. So without further ado, let’s get right into the quantum giftiverse of the best presents for physicists.
Presents For Physicists To Drink Out Of
People love cool things to drink out of. Whether it’s a wine glass, pint glass, or coffee mug, there is something very comforting about sipping a delicious beverage from your favorite cup. So when you’re thinking of great gifts for a physicist, don’t overlook the simple things! Here are some of our favorite physics-themed novelty drinking cups and mugs for your loved ones:
Celebrate the brilliance of one of history's most influential minds with this pint glass showcasing none other than Sir Isaac Newton. As an English mathematician, astronomer, theologian, author, and, of course, physicist, Newton's contributions are as diverse as they are impactful. So, why not raise a glass to him the next time you gaze at the stars (thanks to his pioneering work on telescopes), bask in the sunshine (courtesy of his evidence for the heliocentric model), engage in a lively game of pool (compliments of his laws of motion), or take a refreshing plunge on a hot day (all thanks to his empirical law of cooling)? The possibilities are as endless as Newton's intellect. So, when it's time to toast to your favorite physicist, lab partner, or professor, who better to be in the spotlight? So fill this glass with your favorite drink and cheers to the genius of Newton!
Indulge in an evening of intellectual delight with this captivating wine glass! As you, or your favorite physicist, pour a glass of wine, the intricate designs on this glass are sure to spark conversations about the fascinating theories that shaped our understanding of the atom. So if you’re looking for unique presents for physicists, this is a wonderful place to start. Choose from an individual glass that pairs great with red or white or choose a 4-pack of wine glasses!
Before you say anything, we know that 9 mugs may seem like a lot, but this actually makes a perfect gift for your favorite physicist (just think of how rad this set of mugs would look in any cupboard). Or if you have multiple friends/science-lovers to buy for, you can always buy the set and gift them out individually! Either way, these Retro Science themed mugs make great gifts for quantum physicists, astrophysicists and teachers alike!
