29 Gifts That Are Out Of This World
Find something for your very own cosmic wanderer of any age or planetary origin.
13. This druzy ring.
In geology, druse or druzy refers to crystals coating rock. This ring features titanium quartz druzy stones.
16. This watch that shows the accurate orbits of planets around our sun.
Pardon the $245,000 price tag for just one second to focus on how cool this astronomical timepiece is. Made with 396 separate parts and using some fancy stones, it shows the actual orbits of the six planets closest to the sun.
20. These cozy collages.
If you haven't seen Beth Hoeckel Collage & Design's offerings, they're like the luxury atmosphere trip without the gargantuan price tag. They're available in a lot of forms that can fit any space budget, like rugs, clocks, pillows, and iPad skins.
21. These slipper socks that are worn by actual NASA astronauts in space.
Suitable for pottering around the house as well as the cosmos.
22. These glow-in-the-dark pillowcases.
The moons come in purple or blue, and when you flick the lights off, the constellations appear. (Sorry, they're a pinch pricey.)
26. This lamp that can turn any room into a celestial party.
This laser projector lets you bring the universe home for a party or your next acid trip.
28. A meteorite of your very own.
If you really want to go all out, you can shell out for a meteorite, which is space debris that has made its way to the Earth’s surface. Meteorite hunting is very real, and rare ones can be even more valuable than gold.
To guarantee authenticity, you can find one via NASA's shop at the Kennedy Space Center for $12,000 (left), which was retrieved from a recorded fall in China in — wait for it — 1516 A.D. They also offer some for $30.
If you're into high-end bidding, look for verified meteorites at auction houses like Sotheby's and Christie's. Even eBay has some, but be cautious of anything that isn't registered with the Meteoritical Society.
