Can Somebody Please Buy Me These 27 Badass Christmas Presents?
Why thank you
It's that time of the year where you can start dreaming about the presents that you want to see in front of you come December 25 – the special gadgets that you couldn't justify during the rest of the year, but can pray to receive.
We thought we'd get a list together that will help you buy a present for that special someone in your life – or something you can send out to your own friends and family as a none-too-subtle hint.
1. Master & Dynamic
After a couple of years of everybody wearing Beats, the headphone market is getting more interesting with some awesome designs like these beauties.
They'll set you back $399 though so you better have been good this year!
2. The Beast Off Road Scooter
The prices start at $1999, which is pretty steep, but this scooter is seriously rugged and you'll be able to take it pretty much anywhere.
3. Drop Kit – Hardgraft
A wash bag that carries some serious style and will have you as the envy of... well, pretty much everyone. Enough room for all the products you need to make yourself beautiful too.
4. Star Trek Pizza Cutter
The perfect stocking filler at €24.99 – and one that will make up for all the time you called them a nerd because of their passion for all things interstellar.
5. Leatherman Juice XE6
Will cost around €100, but the good news is if you buy them this they'll have to do all the odd jobs going. A serious piece of kit.
6. Surface Book - Microsoft
You'd be used to seeing Apple products in these sorts of lists but this year Microsoft is getting cool again – and for €1,499 you won't get a better computer.
7. Haig Club Scotch Whisky 70cl
A new Scottish whiskey that has the backing of David Beckham and is an all-round superb brand. Small bottle, but affordable, and will make them feel super special.
8. 3FE - Coffee Subscription
For the coffee lovers out there get them a monthly delivery so as they can start making their own. No better coffee shop to be getting it from either.
9. GoPro HERO4 Black
Quite simply the best and most compact camera on the market. Could be used on the end of a selfie stick or hurtling down the side of a mountain depending on how active they are.
10. Sonos Play 1

13. Kielhs Starter Pack
One for the guys who like taking special care of themselves – or, if you're in the business of dropping hints, somebody who needs to look after themselves a little better. Pricey, because this is the best you can get.
14.Fitbit Surge Fitness Tracker

Not one of the cheapest drones you'll lay your hands on, but with the 4K camera you'll get stunning footage. All you have to do is find someone to buy it for you!
17. Leaf cannabis growing system
Okay, so we'll preface with this by saying you need to live in a country where it's legal to grow weed. But if you do, instead of making it up as you go along in the attic you get a professional system designed for this very purpose.
18. Casio Classic Watch
Forget all this nonsense about smart watches and fitness trackers. For a cool €20 you get this classic that tells the time and has a stop watch. A proper watch!
