Great gift ideas for smart kids and families. There should be something here for almost everyone you know. I aimed for smart, unique, interesting, and distinctive gifts that your rational friends and family would appreciate. Or to give someone a hint, add these to your Amazon gift wishlist!
For books that have a positive. heroic sense of life, check out our book recommendations in the Rational Book Shelf.
My #1 recommendation is the nook color from Barnes and Noble. It is a nice Android tablet that is an eBook reader, media player, web surfer, and more. I am a huge fan of my original nook and have packed it with hundreds of books from Google, BN.com, Gutenberg, and the public library. I do not get a commission for pushing the nook, I am just a super fan.
I have three girls ages 2-12, and my friends have boys, plus I kept wife, grandpa and sister-in-law in mind when drafting these suggestions. I hope I have everyone covered. If you have clever gift ideas, please post them below and share.
