10 great gifts for the weather geek in your life

Buying gifts during the holidays can be hard, and buying for that special someone who’s always got his head in the clouds can be tougher.

Here are 10 gifts any weather weenie would appreciate.

1. Weather Geek T-Shirt

You and your friends may know you’re a weather geek, but does the world? This shirt spells it out loudly and proudly: “Yeah, I geek out about clouds and storms and stuff. Get used to it!”

2. Bumper sticker

This is perfect for storm chasers, truckers and pretty much anyone else who spends most of their time in their car and watching the weather. The rest of their time is likely spent eating, sleeping, and admiring stellar bumper stickers like this one.

3. Pocket weather meter

This is another one for anyone always on the move wanting to know the exact weather conditions right where they are. After all, there could be a slight temperature difference between you and your neighbor’s backyard — depending on who’s grilling out and who’s watering their lawn — right?

4. Vintage Brass Rooster Weather Vane

Are you a weather geek? Do you also have a big red barn? Then this is the perfect topper for said barn. It’s a classic look that’s not going anywhere, no matter which way the wind blows. And you would know which way the wind’s blowing thanks to this weather vane.

5. Combination Clock/Thermometer/Moon Phase

So you can’t stop looking up, day or night. When you do look down, you need to know the time, temperature, and which phase the moon is in all at the same time. This is the answer.

6. Personalized Sun Dial

Live in a sunny locale? Despise all technological advances in time-keeping in modern history? Then go way old school and tell time by using this sun dial. To top it off, it can be personalized. Maybe something fun like, “It’s dark, how am I supposed to know what time it is?”

7. Galileo weather station

This is another great gift for the really old school weather weenie, or someone who already has the latest technology looking for a piece of history. The three dials already show the time, pressure, and humidity. The colorful bubbles give you an accurate temperature reading.

8. Wireless forecast station

In the paraphrased words of late comedian George Carlin, “Why do we need the temperature at the airport? Nobody lives at the airport?!” Now, you can know the temperature at your house with a wireless forecast station. Set it up at your home, and a convenient panel inside your home will give you the current conditions and the forecast where you live.

9. Emergency kit

This gift is ideal for the doomsday prepper in all of us. Have everything you need once the next weather disaster strikes. This is actually something everyone should have because you never know when the next big tornado, hurricane or other weather catastrophe is coming.

10. Farmer’s Almanac

This is strictly pleasure reading. It’s best to avoid this if you’re looking for accuracy.

BONUS GIFT:
A weather app like SnowCast, RadarCast, or Storm Shield.

There are a plethora of weather apps out there, but these three bring the weather to you. SnowCast notifies you when it’s going to snow a certain amount — that amount’s up to you. RadarCast watches incoming rain and will let you know when the next round of precipitation is coming. And Storm Shield can save your life by sending an extremely loud alert when bad weather like a tornado is coming to your location.
