Every year holiday shopping gets easier logistically. And yet it also gets less satisfying. Really, what do you get someone who can get anything they want on Amazon and have it delivered the same day – possibly by a drone? How about something they can’t? Indiegogo and Kickstarter gifts can be a really fun way to get your friends and family something unique.
Here are ten crowdfunded products that are available on Indiegogo or Kickstarter right now and have good timing with the holiday season.
Travel jacket with pockets for everything you carry, plus a neck pillow, eye mask, and gloves.
Everyone’s body has a unique cycle. BedJet creates sleep-inducing climate control just for your bed and helps you align your sleep with your body’s natural sleep biorhythms with intelligent bed cooling & warming.
For serious beer aficionados. A beer brewing robot for your home. Imagine being able to craft hundreds of craft beers from around the world by just using ingredient kits that come in the mail.
A social (and cute!) robot that connects, protects, and interacts with each member of your family.
Remember putting stars up on your ceiling as a kid? DreamMe lets you project information from your smartphone on the ceiling of your bedroom.

Love working outdoors? Or can never find a power outlet at your Starbucks “mobile office”?
