Personalised Storm Barometer

Been saving for a rainy day?

This magnificent Storm Glass Barometer towers at approx. 29 cm tall, making it look almost like a trophy as you hand it over. This is one of the reasons that it makes an excellent retirement gift. Another is that you can personalise it on the base with two lines of text, up to 25 characters per line. You can tailor make it for any occasion but we particularly recommend the personalised barometer as a gift for anyone balmy about the weather, as a retirement gift or a unique Father's day present.

That's all very well, but what actually is a Storm Barometer? Good question. The information that we know off the top of our heads and in no way had to google before writing this is that it is an invention by the 17th century English sailor and scientist Admiral Robert Fitzroy. Sealed inside the glass is a mixture of chemicals that form crystals. The appearance of the liquid and crystals is constantly changing and - according to Fitzroy - the way that the formations occur can predict the weather. Don't worry - there's a handy booklet included with the barometer so that you can interpret the weather forecast for yourself.

Incidentally, Fitzroy also coined the term 'forecasting the weather' (so now you know who to blame when they get it wrong again and you're out without an umbrella). We can't attest to the accuracy of this, or any other meteorological device, but it's a fascinating gift and a lovely looking piece of equipment that is both personal and unlikely to be something they already own.

Wonderful product which is a little different. Good quality and great price. Being able to have the base engraved gives the gift that extra special touch. Would certainly buy another one for that somebody special in the future.
