Weather Themed Gifts

Updated on December 6, 2014

Weather Gifts for Folks that Just Love the Weather

If you know someone that is crazy about all things weather, from storm chasing to watching the clouds to charting the new Atlantic hurricane or Pacific typhoon to constantly checking one of the many weather apps on his smart phone, then you have come to the right place to look for weather related gifts.

I've assembled a fun assortment of gifts for the weather lovers in your life both young and old. Like cool mugs, antique and vintage weather instruments, posters, weather vanes, thermometers (like my husband's Galileo thermometer on the left), umbrellas, stuff for babies, calendars, weather theme jewelry with lightning bolts and umbrellas, plus books, art and a whole lot more!

Your Own Weather Station

Every weather aficionado needs their own weather station. This complete wireless weather station measures windspeed, wind direction, rainfall, temperature and indoor and outdoor humidity, dewpoint, windchill and barometric pressure.

A Wireless Weather Station is the Modern Great Gift

Weather Instruments

A Galileo Thermometer and Glass Barometer is a Beautiful Gift

AcuRite 00795A2 Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer
AcuRite 00795A2 Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer

This handsome glass weather instrument uses a blend of old and new technology to interpret the weather. The Galileo thermometer is filled with a clear liquid suspending multiple colored weights. As the liquid within changes temperature, its density changes allowing the weights to rise or fall. The lowest weight at the very top of the Galileo reflects the temperature. Similarly, the glass water barometer indicates changes in air temperature. A low fluid level in the glass spout generally means fair weather while a higher fluid level in the glass spout means inclement weather is coming. The set is mounted on a wood base; approximately 8 inches long and 8 inches high

* Cylindrical thermometer and barometer set; inspired by Galileo's own instruments

* Interprets temp and weather based on principles of buoyancy and air pressure

* Colorful, liquid filled spheres descend and ascend with atmospheric changes

* Barometer features the world globe etched in the glass

 

This Home Weather Station has a Weather Alert Radio Too!

* The outdoor sensor reads temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure to be displayed on your home weather station

* Then your emergency weather radio with NOAA National Weather Service transmits alerts for your location as you travel

* 50 mile signal scan receives 7 digitally tuned NOAA channels

* Responds to all hazards and warnings for NOAA, NWS, Department of Defense and Weatheradio Canada

* Battery or AC power

* Backlit display is bright for easy readability
