It’s that time of year again to get the Christmas songs playing, put on some mulled wine and settle down to some online Christmas shopping. Here you will find a selection fabulous formaldehyde-inspired gift ideas for any anatomy enthusiast. And remember to treat yourself this festive season too…
So where to start? Firstly, you’re going to need a Christmas card. Put a smile on someone’s face with something humerus, get it?!…
Next, you’ll need to choose a gift for that special someone who appreciates the anatomical. Here are some ideas to get you started.
So it’s going well. Card written, gifts purchased, but wait, you still need gift wrap! Not to fear, you can even buy wrapping paper and gift tags for that skeleton-loving someone, not to mention the coolest sticky tape ever made.
So you’ve done well; your gruesomely-wrapped gift is sitting in pride of place under your Christmas tree next to the cuddly toys for the kids and Grandma’s brand new slippers. But there is a question lingering in the back of your mind; can you bring yourself to give it away?! Everyone prefers gift vouchers anyway, right?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I don’t give 5 stars lightly, this book is fantastic! Those of you interested in the history of medicine know that the facts themselves are an interesting read, but the authors of this book wrote it in such a way that you really get to know the key figures from Edinburgh’s medical history and their fascinating careers. Don’t know Edinburgh? Don’t be put off. You will learn the history of some of the world most celebrated discoveries and professionals; from Charles Darwin to Arthur Conan Doyle, from bodysnatchers Burke and Hare to Dolly the Sheep. Reading this gripping book really made me proud, not only to live in a city steeped in such pioneering medical history, but to be working for a Royal College so involved in the advancement of medicine through the centuries to the present day.
