It’s that time of year where blogs are abuzz with gift guides so I thought I’d give a go at it. Here are my suggestions for some awesome women in STEM gifts to give to not only the women in STEM in your life but those who support them. Or to just buy for yourself.

Women of Science Tarot Deck from Massive Science ($29.95)
I bought these when it was a Kickstarter and think they are absolutely gorgeous. The deck features portraits of many important women in science’s history and is gorgeous original work by Matteo Farinella. Massive Science is a community open to any STEM researcher who wants to improve their storytelling skills and every purchase from their store helps them train more scientists.
Massive Science also has some fun digital coloring books for those in the market ($2.50 for 1a bundle of Space Scientists, Life & Earth Scientists, or Mathematicians & Computer Scientists).
Scientist Nameplate Necklace from Two Photon Art ($35)
Two Photon Art is run by two women scientists, Tera Johnson (Environmental Science) and Christine Liu (Neuroscience). They also have a lot of other gorgeous jewelry, pins, clothing, home goods and stickers in their shop.
Cards Against Humanities Science Pack ($10) Bonus: The profits from this 30 card expansion pack goes to the Science Ambassador Scholarship for women in STEM. This scholarship has been funding female identifying undergraduate students since 2014 to study STEM.
Because we’re still in a pandemic, why not a Women in Science 500 piece puzzle? ($16.99)
And here is the book that inspired the puzzle:
Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World by Rachel Ignotofsky ($16.99)
Still need more ideas? What about a cute shirt, sweatshirt or tote where the proceeds support Skype a Scientist? Skype a Scientist connects scientists with teachers, classrooms, groups and the public all over the world so that they have the opportunity to meet a real scientist. My personal favorite is Herpetologist Medusa.
