Do you have a brother-in-law who collects weather vanes? Is your mum checking her phone for the latest in weather updates every minute? Do you sleep next to a person who knows more about tornadoes than you do about anything? If you answered yes to any, it looks like you’re in for a list of perfect gifts with high chances of happy recipients.
Smell the Fall in the Room
Some people love seasons for sensual reasons. For example, people adore the smell of evergreen plants and baked cookies in the winter. Conversely, there’s something about sandalwood that reminds people of summer. Your weather-obsessed friend or family member will appreciate a gift certificate to a candle store. That way they can gather scents for all seasons.
Place Footwear for Sleepy Feet
How cosy can you get your feet in the winter? So cosy like it feels as if you’re wearing a sleeping bag on each foot? That’s a great idea. So much that manufacturers offer them at Baffin.com. They’re durable enough for campers and comfy enough for couch potatoes.
Unplug at Anytime
Present your friend with a water-powered clock and help them erase their carbon footprint. With this piece, they will never rely on batteries to know the time when camping, in bed, or at work. Simply fill the device with water and watch it tell time as reliably as the snow falls in Switzerland.
Play it Forward
The recipient probably has a smartphone but are they using it to its potential? Be sure they get around to shopping on Google Play, where they can download both free and paid apps. Present them with a gift card so they can choose the ones most suitable to their lifestyle and needs.
Measure Rain to the Inch
Most of us just want to know if we should take an umbrella with us. Others obsess over the actual accumulation of water falling from the sky. Your weather buff will love a brass rain gauge. Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s obsessive personality, this rain gauge is for those serious about precipitation.
Know How It Blows
Your weather-obsessed gift recipient may have other buffs in their neighbourhood, but how many of them have wind spinner that features a frog on a motorcycle? It’s whimsical as well as practical! Having weather data is one thing. Doing it with some quirky style is another.
Bathe the Birds
You may have a friend who patiently awaits spring, which marks the return of the birds. Spring and summer are prime times for bird watching. While avid watchers often go on location, present your friend with the opportunity to tempt birds to come on their front porch or back patio.
Know Before the Pros
A weather guru is not going to rely on the local news for data. They are going straight to the source. But they’ll need some intermediate weather tools to gather their own insight. That’s easily attained after you get them a deluxe wireless forecaster.
