How will the science and tech lovers on your list get the binary scarf, dodecahedral bag or molecular embroidery they need unless you create it for them this holiday season?!

spacer Journals from la paperie & cozy
There’s still plenty of time to request a custom journal from Beverly at la paperie & cozy in Nova Scotia. You can probably find the perfect choice in the shop right now too; we love the Einstein journal, but they’re all truly beautiful.

    Oh, my. As a scientist myself, this totally cracks me up. I’m sorely tempted by that embroidered coffee cozy. And the cord basket is a great idea (and really cute, too!~ do you think I’d have to make it less cute to give it to my husband?)! LOL =)

  215. Southern Gal says:

    My computer loving son would love that wallet…and I just threw out an old keyboard. Bummer.

And I will also have to make up some of those cord baskets after Christmas for my hubby – he has endless bunches of cords, usually spread all over the floor.
