What gift could be more personal than a portrait capturing your own DNA? If you order one of these, you will receive a cheek swab kit to collect your DNA. You can choose between different sizes and colors, or include more than one person if you want a family portrait. That would definitely make for a truly original holiday postcard.

A 3D model of your favorite biomolecule

With different models available in multiple sizes, these notebooks are the perfect gift for those who like to stay organized in style — or those who need somewhere to dump everything on their busy minds.

A viral boardgame

Boardgame lovers will love this gift. In this game, the players become viruses with the goal of taking over the host’s organs while avoiding the immune system and competing with the other viruses. For once, it must be nice to play the side of the attackers instead of being their victim.
