15 Gift Ideas For The Space Lover in Your Life

48 years ago today, two human beings landed on the moon for the very first time. The Astronauts in questions have inspired many generations of people to walk in their footsteps, and I’m sure I’m not the first to admit that I’ve dreamt of being an Astronaut in my time. So here are some out of this world gift ideas for the budding Astronauts out there.

Astronaut T-Shirt

What’s the first step to becoming an Astronaut? – looking the part. And nothing says NASA more than an Astronaut riding a unicorn through a rainbow in space, am I right? Scientifically accurate and Stylish. Most importantly, Anna Kendrick wore this exact t-shirt in a movie she starred in with Sam Rockwell, called Mr Right.

Moon Lamp

How about the Moon? Want to get acquainted with its craters before you land on the thing? This lamp is an exact replica of the orb we see in the night sky, making it perfect for any Astronaut in training.

Gift Ideas for Space Lovers | Carl Sagan Print

Carl Sagan Print

If you’re in need of a little space inspiration, no one’s more qualified than astronomer Carl Sagan who is full of wise word’s when it comes to everything extra-terrestrial.

Worried about leaving your plants on earth while you explore the universe? Well you need one of these Rocket Planters.

But it looks super cool, especially if you add the right plant.

You could always get some posters to keep your plants company. Depicting the likes of Mars, Venus, Jupiter, and Europa, you can explore the earth from the comfort of your own sofa.

Onto the most important thing in an Astronauts life, alcohol, and what’s better than a gin literally made from moon rock.

Everyone needs to shower, even Astronauts, and if they were to choose their own products, I’m pretty sure they’d go for this Space Junk by Lynndiez Fizziez. Made up of fictional comet dust, planet chunks, and burnt out stars, it’s perfect for a post space expedition bath.
