As much as we love Christmas shopping, it’s always good when you can find one shop when you can buy multiple gifts for different people in one go…and even better when it’s online. That’s why we were pleased to discover CoolStuff, as it gets gift ideas for all the family, plus unusual stocking fillers, ticked off in one go.
The online store is literally packed with ideas, but they’re handily broken down into key categories, such as Tech Gadgets, Home & Garden, Food & Drink and Hobby & Lifestyle, so you don’t end up endlessly scrolling through everything.
If you’re looking for gift ideas for a particular person, such as your mum, dad, a female or male, then there are sections dedicated to ideas for them. They also have a useful tool to help you find a Christmas gift, which can narrow down the options even more.
The website is easy to shop from and, once your order is placed, you’ll receive a confirmation email when it’s been packed up and sent out to you. With our order, everything arrived well packed in a sturdy cardboard box.
Want to see what Christmas gifts we couldn’t resist?
Mini light box with magnet
Light boxes have been hugely popular for the last few years, as they make a fun and quirky home decoration. This nifty light box is designed just like the larger options, but is in a cute mini size. There’s a button on the side to turn the light on and off and three rows available to add your choice of words, phrases or messages.
As an added bonus, the light box comes with a magnetic backing so you can either pop it on a shelf and stand it up, or display it on a fridge or other magnetic surface. It comes with 120 black letters, numbers and other signs, such as hashtags and punctuation – they’re a little bit flimsy to use and slide into the rows on the box, but for the price, we can’t complain.
At just £9.99, the mini light box with magnet is a well priced Christmas gift idea. It needs three AAA batteries to operate and you can buy a pack on CoolStuff.com for £2.99.
KitchPro mini donut maker
Love the smell and taste of freshly cooked doughnuts? This great kitchen gadget will allow you to whip up a batch of fresh donuts whenever you fancy them.
The donut maker kitchen gadget is designed to make seven mini doughnuts at a time. It’s fairly compact and doesn’t take up too much room on a kitchen worktop, and the machine is designed to be easy to use and easy to clean – just what we like to hear! When it’s plugged in and turned on, a light indicates whether or not the donut maker is heated up enough and ready for you to use.
The KitchPro mini donut maker is priced at just £14.99, which seems good for a kitchen gadget of this type. Just make sure you choose the option with the correct plug type for your location.
If you enjoy listening to music whilst you drop off to sleep, but find conventional headphones too uncomfortable – especially when lying on your side – then meet the SleepPhones.
The slimline headphones are built into a soft and comfortable headband. Position it correctly on your head, with the earphones over your ears, and you’ll be able to listen to music in comfort and without disturbing anyone else. They’re available as either a wireless version, which works with bluetooth, or a wired version, that you can plug into your phone, tablet or mp3 player. The sound quality is good and the design concept ticks lots of our boxes.
The SleepPhones are available in either a purple or black finish and in a choice of three sizes, so you can find the most comfortable band size for your head. The original wired version costs £29.99, whilst the wireless option is £58.99 and they really do make using headphones in bed a gazillion times more comfortable.
