Test Tube Tea Infuser
Everyone likes tea, right? And science? People like science? This test tube tea infuser isn’t just a cute novelty product, it honestly seems like a nicer design than other infusers I’ve seen. Pair it with some of your favorite loose leaf tea for a fantastic gift! $11.99 at ThinkGeek.com.
LEGO USB Drive
I’ve had a pink version of this LEGO USB drive on my keychain for a couple years now, and I absolutely love it. It’s cute and geeky without being too flashy or cumbersome, and it actually serves a purpose. I can transfer files, photos, videos, music, etc. back and forth without worrying about forgetting it somewhere (since it’s on my keys). Bonus? The 4 GB Drive is only $12.99 from Amazon.

The scent mix includes tangerine, juniper, and clove. The travel tin is available for $14.20 from Amazon. Pair the candle with a favorite book for a fantastic gift!
