It is hard to believe, but Christmas is just around the corner — only two weeks away. But there is no need to panic! You can still get gifts via Amazon.com in time for Christmas, so it obviously isn’t too late yet! The last day to order from Amazon.com with standard shipping is December 17, 2018, the last day to order with two-day Prime shipping is December 22, 2018. You can check the complete Amazon.com holiday delivery calendar.

For those looking for the perfect gifts for the nerd in your life — perhaps a beloved patent attorney or maybe an engineer, scientist or inventor — here are a few can’t miss gifts for your consideration. As of the time of publication all are still available to be received before Christmas.

Patent Wall Art

Personalized Signs by Lone Star Art has a tremendous selection of patent wall art, either 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 unframed. If you go to the patents in question you will notice that the orientation of some of the images has been changed to make the wall art more aesthetically pleasing (i.e., rotating the image from the vertical axis to the horizontal axis). Whatever you invent, whatever you work on as a patent attorney, they have classic patents available. Here are some of the ones that particularly caught my attention.
