1. Puzzles
2020 am I right? There’s only so much Netflix a person can watch! If you’re looking for a new activity to do at home, take it back to the basics with a good old jigsaw puzzle. We have space-science puzzles for all ages!

2. Robots

3. Museum Nerd
What is a Museum Nerd? One devoted to museums of artistic, historical, or scientific interest and single-minded in their pursuit of culture. Shop this fun and fresh line, found exclusively at the Cosmosphere! And help support your favorite museum (psst, that would be the Cosmosphere) all at the same time!

4. Galileo Thermometer
Galileo Thermometers demonstrate a unique method of telling the temperature discovered by Galileo Galilei. The Galilean thermometer is based on the principle of buoyancy, a force exerted by a fluid that opposes an object’s weight. And heck, they’re just cool!

5. Socks
Oh no, not socks for Christmas! Yes. Socks for Christmas. These super cozy and super spacey socks will shoot the space lover on your list over the Moon! They’ll definitely not toss these aside Christmas morning! 

6. Mova Globes
MOVA Globes utilize solar technology to rotate silently on their own with any ambient indoor light or indirect sunlight. That means no batteries or wires required which makes them good for the environment! It’s a #winwin!
