Advent Day 1: Feel-good Christmas decorations
The first entry is sure to make the geek in your household smile: Made with Molecules has a whole line of holiday biochemistry-related goodies. They sell a seratonin molecule wreath card and Christmas tree ornament. As they point out "Serotonin binds to receptors in the brain to induce feelings of happiness, satiation, and relaxation."
They also have other holiday cards that depict either a DNA transcription tree or the PEACE peptide.
They also have gifts for all occasions. You (or someone you love) would probably get a kick out of their molecule jewelry (in the shape of estrogen, caffeine, theobromine (chocolate), serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters), testosterone boxer shorts, kid & baby clothes depicting glucose (sweet) or oxytocin (cuddle), or the dopamine love card.
