I love shopping museum gift shops and always find unique items for my girls or their friends when a birthday party is around the corner.
So I asked a few of the local museum gift shops for holiday gift ideas. We'll start with Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. Here are some fun finds at their shop:
- Holiday Snowmen: These happy, plush snowmen carrying the words "hope," "joy" or "peace" are sweet gifts for your favorite child this season. Collect the whole set! Cost: $8 each.
- Image Gallery DVDs: These DVDs show gorgeous galleries of space, Earth and amazing winter wonderlands. It’s a vacation in your DVD player! Cost: $15 each.
- Glacier fiber optic light, Volcano liquid lamp, Jellyfish liquid lamp: The nights are getting longer. These fun, colorful lamps are a great way to light up your room. Cost: $12.50 to $25
- Science Mugs: Baby, it’s cold outside! The best way to warm up is with a hot drink. Morehead’s mugs are the perfect gift for the science lover in your family. On some mugs, the picture changes when it warms up. Cost: $7 to $15
- Brighten a bedroom at night with remote-controlled, light-up "Moon in My Room,” "Earth in My Room" and "Solar System in My Room" models. The “Solar System in My Room” features a light-up Sun orbited by planets. Cost: $40 to $45.
