Put Fossils, Rocks, and Minerals on Your Christmas List

What are YOU giving your favorite kid this holiday season? Will it be another one of those gifts that seems like a winner, only to be tossed aside after a day or two…maybe even after a few hours?

Time and again, I have seen kids’ eyes light up at the sight of an ancient tooth or bug: frozen in time, having waited for sometimes hundreds of millions of years to be excavated and placed in our 21st century hands. THIS is the kind of gift that could inspire a lifetime of excitement.

In our fossil and mineral business, we have the opportunity to talk with adults from all around the country and the world. Each of them seems to tell a similar tale; “When I was a kid, I used to find these cool fossils/rocks/crystals. (You could fill in the last word with any of these.) I had them all over my room. I never got tired of looking at them and imagining how they had lived (or how they had formed or how they got so beautiful.)”

Fossils and minerals are just the beginning. With the books and activities provided on many websites, these great gifts can turn into a world of learning. A simple collection box with a few carefully chosen specimens, could lead your child to a new world of exploration just outside their own back door.

Add a book or two with simple explanations of how animals once lived, their habitats, their predators or their prey…and you’ll send her into the realm of imagination inspired by a fantastic reality. History was never so much fun nor more compelling!

We hope you’ll take time to check out our special offerings just for kids. We’ve got several collections and books that should send your young geologist or paleontologist into a place of eager learning.

And if the object of your gifting is one of those adults who’s fond of their childhood findings, we’ve got beautiful gifts to decorate their home with ancient creatures. From bookends to bowls to wearable fossils, the rockhound on your list will be thrilled with the one-of-a-kind gift that will start many conversations for years to come: “You know when I was a kid…”
