7. T. rex skull replica with stand~$129

Ancient Odysseys’ mission is to help support the science conducted by researchers on paleontology and archaeology digs around the world. But that means that cool replicas are fair game—especially from a company that supports education and supplies museums and science institutions.

5. Raptor Ridge coffee~ $14.95 for 12 oz

No true paleontologist hits the field before downing a cup of joe at oh-dark-thirty. Next field season, grab Bellingham Coffee Roaster’s Raptor Ridge blend for when you need something ancient that says I’m not only awake, but I just might bare my fangs today. Rich, well balanced deep body, hints of cocoa, with a subtle sweet after-taste.

4. Geological timescale water bottle~$39.95

Working out in the field can be hot, grueling work and staying hydrated is a must. Keep your water cold and at hand with this vacuum-sealed steel water bottle decorated with the geological timescale. It’s a textured design that’s BPA free and it also comes available in 32 oz size.

3. Jurassic Park MeUndies ~Prices vary

For a selection of colorful, stylish undies and playful fun, choose from a wide selection of Jurassic Park-inspired briefs, hipsters, boy shorts, boxers and bralettes.

2. Stuffed brachiosaurs (and the Ancient Odysseys mascot)~$13.99

We adopted little "Mitey" here as our company mascot as we traveled to visit fossil sites in the Australian Outback this year, and we wanted to share the DINO-mite love. This cute little stuffed brachiosaurus from Wild Republic was a real trooper the whole way. He's super soft and pleasantly colorful with stuffing made from 100% recycled water bottles, so he's eco-friendly too. We have the 10" size but he comes in 15" and 19" too.

1. Go on a dinosaur dig! ~Prices vary

For those who really love dinosaurs and fossils, give your loved one (or yourself) the most unforgettable gift of all by reserving your space on a paleontology dig for your next vacation. Work alongside scientists to excavate Triceratops, Sauropods, Ammonites, and more in the USA and Australia. There are lots of options to choose from and bragging rights are guaranteed.
