Gifts for the psych teacher on your list

Still looking for that last minute gift for your favorite psychology teacher (or yourself)? Here are some off-the beaten path ideas for you:

You can find some "brainy" shirts at, including Bird Brain and Connect It:

Uncommon Goods features a number of items for the psychoanalyst in you. Here are Freudian Slippers, psychoanalyst finger puppets and the always popular Tickle Me Freud, as well as the Rorschock party game and Mind Games (A Box of Psychological Play).

For more unique psych-related gifts check out the people who make lots of handmade stuff on Etsy. For example, by plugging in the keyword "psychology" I was able to find among other things dopamine jewelry and some really cool buttons. Keep in mind these are in limited quantities but they may be far more unique than the other options above.

So what about you -- where do you get your favorite psych-related gifts? Or what's on your wish list this year? Please share your ideas in the comments below!

I have a book recommendation for your favorite prof: Scott Lilienfeld's 50 Great Myths in Popular Psychology.

Wow, Michael, great minds think alike! I was trying to stick to non-book ideas here but I will have a post coming out between Christmas and New Year's about psych books that came out in 2009 ... and look for a couple of giveaways as well!
