My good friend is getting married soon, and I'd love to give him a great math related gift. Traditional gift registries are all well and good but I'd love to get them something surprising and a little bit fun.
She teaches math to high schoolers and he does calculus problems to relax. Is there any thinkgeek type equivalent for those who are nerdy in the math flavor? Interesting books might be good, but something that could be fun for display or even to engage non-math fiends would be good too. Puzzles, games, art, etc.
The only idea I have so far is a framed print of this xkcd comic http://xkcd.com/55/. Help!
