I actually love the sparkfun boxes where all the products are shipped. I keep them. It would be awesome to have a SparkFun 3D Printed Box.
Spark Glass (like Google Glass) or Spark Watch (Apple Watch) so you’re always trendy on the cheap ;)
Gloves that look just like your hand, or cartoon like your favorite character, Mario, Mickey Mouse, Toshi, etc.
