    Is there an engineer of any age who doesn’t want (more) LEGO? Or even better, LEGO Technics?

    For books, my more specific recommendations are to look at the Dover books on various subjects, or Henry Petroski’s books.

    You left out handkerchiefs!!!!!! I have boxes I haven’t opened yet.

    I don’t think they have gift cards, but even a catalog from smallparts.com or allelectronics.com is nice, especially since The Shack has gone off the rails.

    One valuable tip I haven’t seen yet… check their Amazon wishlist!
    My husband checks mine out and I’ve gotten great Christmas and Birthday presents from it.
