Arlington, Texas (12/11/12) – Avoid the mall crowds and discover all of the amazing, oh-so-smart gifts this Holiday Gift Guide has to offer. Mensa has selected some of the smartest gifts, for those hardest to find the perfect gift for, and compiled them into one list,

We have gift-giving ideas for all ages and interests. There’s office toys like the MIMOBOT Einstein flash drive, a Brookstone virtual keyboard, the iThougths app, the Void Puzzle from Rubik’s, as well as kitchen toys such as the a Molecular Gastronomy Kit by Cuisine R-EVOLUTION, which makes a great counterpart to the Pixel Oven Mitts from Mustard. If it’s an accessory you’re looking for, try the Cadence radian watch or National Geographic’s Expedition Shoe Lights. Who can say no to a sweet treat? There’s the 13 Moon Club Haut Chocolat, as well as the Flying Chocolate Pig, which is filled with hickory smoked uncured bacon.

The guide also features the American Mensa Academy, a game to help improve logic, math, language, and visual agility. If you prefer putting pencil to paper instead of finger to touch screen, the 365 Mensa Brain Puzzlers 2013 Desk Calendar and the Mensa Home Test are both fun for the mind. If your friends want to get in the fun, check out the Mensa Select Games at
