The holidays can be a stressful time even in the most ordinary of years, and with so much else going on in 2020, we think there’s no reason for you to spend unnecessary time (or money) worrying about finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. So we did all the work for you and put all of our best holiday coverage together in one place. We’ve put together gift guide at all levels, uncovered the very best versions of the most popular items, and even asked around – exactly what they want so you can knock it out of the park. So whether you’re looking for something to gift your cousin who loves space, your world-traveling dad who can only be stuck at home now, or your child’s teacher, here is a guide to the best gifts for every single astrophil on your list.
For space lovers, perhaps it is the time of the year to shop astronomy gifts for your beloved one. While space itself and the universe are less likely to care or show an interest in the culture of love, we humans have made a lot of effort to impart those characteristics on and into every aspect of our lives, and of course, this includes Space.
2. The packaging matters for space-lovers.
Judging from the findings by anthropologists through the years, it’s safe to say that storytelling is a medium used by many to relate to the world around us. Our science gifts are made with the full intention of changing viewers’ perception of space. These science tools for kids usually feature super-imposed graphics and sounds to provide full entertainment and learning value. The ah-ha moment is the opening of curiosity. Yes, the packaging matters.
3. What about the lunatics?
Admit it, you have many lunatics on your list. Or if you yourself are having trouble deciding what to ask Santa for. Here they are.
4. Who do you care about the most?
Astrology is considered a pseudoscience; it is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies and their potential influences on human affairs and world events. A person’s “sign” is determined by the position of the Sun on the date they were born. For example, a person is born under the sign of Virgo if the constellation Virgo was behind the Sun at the time of birth. At any time of the year, the Sun is between Earth and one of the twelve Zodiac constellations. First seen by ancient astronomers, the constellations of the Zodiac were ascribed specific patterns that resemble the shapes of animals, half-animals, and human beings.
While our team at AstroReality work frequently with NASA scientists and astronomers, we decided for this holiday season to dabble in the softer art of examining the stars, to bring you our Zodiac-themed holiday gift guide. Here’s our official AstroReality gift guide, for every sign.
