Come Halloween, every parent starts looking for costume ideas for their kids. And the obvious choice for a kid who loves astronomy is an Astronaut outfit.

I love gifts that foster fun learning. Having said that, this 3D Crystal Ball has planets of our solar system floating inside it (except pluto) with their moons.

When your kid is not busy learning the names of the planets, the crystal will still be of an application by imparting elegance to your desk.
This stunning blanket has several constellations that give a neon glow in the dark and will make you feel like you are at the center of the universe.

Based on Galileo’s principle of variation in the density of a liquid with temperature change, this Thermometer and Globe Storm Glass interprets weather.

This umbrella not only blocks UV rays and resists wind flipping but also has a cooling nano-fiber galaxy print layer that isolates and controls heat. It can rest on any surface without the support and comes with a free umbrella cover. So, is it raining? Let’s move over the clouds.
What is common in people who seek knowledge and learning? They keep notes. A notebook is a necessary commodity to systematize information and optimize time (offline!). Gifting a notebook is both purposeful and practical. It will be of great use to an astronomer to keep a record of the movement of celestial bodies after telescopic observations.
Making the cut for iconic centerpieces, this Floating Metal Globe is certainly a conversation starter. The inner magnetic ends of the horseshoe-shaped stand attract the metal globe with equal forces and thus render it afloat in between.

If your friend likes to go to peaceful remote places for stargazing and needs a solution for off-grid lights that is sustainable and portable then gift him LuminAIDS’ Inflatable lantern this birthday and watch him inflate with happiness. The battery life is almost 24 hrs and it is foldable and washable. Being shatterproof and dustproof, it is safe for children as well.
Another example of fine craftsmanship, this original universal glass necklace holds the complete galaxy inside it. Each glaze is set at 3600 degrees in 3 hrs with a low success rate, separating it from other cheap pendants. It is bound to a thick and long leather cord and comes packed inside an exquisite gift box. I am sure that the smile on the face of the receiver will be worth every penny spent.
Not all astronomy enthusiasts get to land on other planets but other planets can certainly land at your homes. MOVA invented a cordless solar-based method to keep the handmade acrylic shell (any planet; here, Jupiter) rotating on the three-legged bases. Magnets are used to generate torque and solar cells to generate power. The non-toxic fluid-filled globe will start rotating as soon as any ambient light falls on it. You can give it as a novelty gift to anyone on any occasion.
Just the same as above, this globe represents Earth. It has 4.5 inches of diameter and 7 inches long with base. It looks elegant and engrossing but if you like you can switch to the globe with the world map etched on it. Just place the globe anywhere and watch it rotate in awe every time you pass by.
From small Celestial pendant necklace to Galaxy Sweatpants and NASA Bombers, every gift has its charm and gravity (pun intended!). Some are focused on fun and learning and others convey your love and care for your close ones. Choose the ideal fit for the occasion and giftee and tell me why you chose it on the My Comment Page.
