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.
It’s summer, sidewalk chalk holders.
Sparkfun logo pen/pencil top. An assortment of the sparkfun team members in a pencil top. Collect them all.
An eye patch, you can print different colors.
