It’s never too early to start planning Christmas shopping. The earlier you start, the less stress you will feel as the day gets closer and closer.
At the end of the day, it’s all about giving and being with your loved ones at this special time of year.
But at the same time, you don’t want to be the person that receives a lot of gifts and doesn’t have anything to give back.
So, with that in mind, beat the crowds this year.
Here are 10 of the coolest gifts for Christmas to fill up the stockings and put some big smiles on lots of faces.
1. Kool 8 Water Bottle
This is the perfect gift for Christmas for someone that loves the be active or that person you know doesn’t drink as much water as they should.
The Kool8 water bottle is incredibly stylish and can be taken anywhere. Thanks to its brilliant insulation technology, the contents of the bottle maintain the right temperature all day long.
This includes cool drinks like water and also hot drinks like tea and coffee. But no matter who you’re buying for and what they like, it’s important that they stay hydrated.

2. Indoor Smokeless Barbeque
Do you know anyone that always wants to host an outdoor barbeque but always finds a reason to put it off?
Well, with this indoor smokeless barbeque, you can stop them in their tracks. That way, when it’s their turn to provide, there are no excuses.
The beauty of this gift is in the name – it’s smokeless. This means that no matter how good (or how bad) they are at cooking, if the food starts to burn and things don’t go to plan, no alarms will go off and telling the whole neighborhood about it.
3. 3-Player Chess
This cool gift for Christmas could be considered a bit of a novelty. But the competitive people in your lives, this could provide them with the ultimate challenge.
The 3-player chess game is not for the faint-hearted. If you thought playing regular chess was tough, you will be scratching your head for some time with this version.
Of course, the person you’re buying it for will need two people to play. If it’s for someone in your family, this extra dimension can prove to be a real talking point. Everyone will want to get involved and prove to be the family’s best 3-player chess player.
4. Never-Soggy Cereal Bowl
The never-soggy cereal bowl is perfect for cereal-lovers around the world. Gone are the days where you have to worry about eating cereal quickly in fear that the milk will take over and ruin the meal.
It separates the bowl into two compartments: one half for the cereal and the other for the milk. This way, whenever you need to add milk to your cereal, you can do so in your own time, rather than it being forced upon you.
If you know someone that takes their breakfast to work, this could make for an excellent gift idea.
It’s so important to keep an eye on health these days. One of the best ways to do this is by counting steps and tracking heart rate.
By buying a pedometer as a gift for Christmas this year, you are allowing someone to take control of their health. At the end of the day, health, along with friends and family, is the most important thing in the entire world.
The best part? They don’t even cost that much these days. Even some of the best pedometers can be bought for less than $30 according to Healthcare Weekly Magazine.
6. Star Map
Sometimes, the coolest gift for Christmas comes from the heart. If it can be personalized, it’s even better. A star map is one of the most unique things you can get as it shows what the stars in the sky looked like at an exact time and date in the past from a specific location.
You can get a star map from Twinkle In Time and customize it to the person you’re buying for. For example, you could choose their birthday and the city where they were born.
If you’re looking for that something special, this is the perfect solution.
7. Moon Light
Moonlight is beautiful. When it shines down in the clear night sky, it has the aura and mystery unlike anything else in the world.
You can recreate it with this moon light. This is a very cool gift for Christmas, perfect for creating a romantic setting with a partner or watching a movie with the rest of the family.
The person you’re buying for will never want to turn it off (but that will take away some of the magic!)
8. Sunrise Alarm Clock
Nobody likes waking up to an alarm clock. Not only are they very loud, but they also make you start off the day feeling tired. If you were in the middle of an awesome dream, they can be just plain rude too.
However, a sunrise alarm clock prevents you from dreading the mornings. When it’s time to get up, this clock will wake you naturally as if the sun was rising in your room. This means when you get up, you’ll be full of energy.
If you know someone that is always tired or finds it tough to get up early in the mornings, this cool gift for Christmas can solve all their worries.
9. Jedi Bathrobe
Know anyone that has ever wanted to be able to use the Force? If so, this Jedi bathrobe can be the coolest gift for Christmas they will get this year.
Fans of Star Wars will go crazy for this. All you need is a lightsaber and you’re practically ready to take on the Dark Side.
Ok, so it won’t actually turn you into a Jedi master – but it’s the closest you will ever come.
Plus, it’s very comfortable to wear and will keep you warm and dry.
