3. Eclipse glasses
Safety first! Looking at the sun with the naked eye can cause permanent damage, even during an eclipse. So, if you plan on taking the party outside to watch it, then certified eclipse glasses are a must. But watch out for fakes! Only buy glasses like these that are certified solar safe.


4. Eclipse books
Want to build excitement and anticipation ahead of the big moment? Try setting out a few books that cover the coming eclipse. This one, called “Totality”, explains what causes a solar eclipse, and how to best observe them. It also contains beautiful photographs of these stunning celestial sights.


5. Eclipse stamps
The perfect favor for the stamp collectors at your party! These one of a kind stamps are the first U.S. stamp to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch. Your mail has never looked better! Get one sheet for $14.90 or five sheets for $62.99 on Amazon.
