It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find the right gift for an engineer.
Just visit Giftsfor Engineers.com, which segments novelty gifts by engineering discipline.
Need something for the petroleum engineer in your life? Try a sterling silver oil rig necklace. Chemical engineers will find the periodic table socks a perfect fit. For electrical engineers and computer engineers, there are dozens of items made from circuit boards.
And mechanical engineers are sure to love the crumpled blueprint paperweight, the site’s top seller.
The site was created by Inflection Point Inc., a Cincinnati engineering consulting firm that keeps an online compendium of engineer jokes. (Example: “Engineers aren’t boring people, we just get excited over boring things.")
GiftsforEngineers.com is especially handy for people who aren’t immersed in engineer culture, says the site’s Web development director, Elizabeth Naramore.
“Even if you don’t understand it, your engineer will,” she says.
I’m sure we’ll be /.’ed next. Right!
