If you’re like me you hate being in a last minute scramble to find your friends or loved ones a Christmas gift. Nothing is worse than having to go out to the malls during holiday season and fight through crowds to find the latest thing that your friends or family might be into. It’s a headache. So I’m trying to get an early start this year, and while shopping around I figured I should share some of my finds.

With an integrated charging part, this waterproof backpack also includes anti theft measures as well as several pockets for your laptop, books, camera gear and more.

If you haven’t heard of Bitcoin, you’ve been hiding under a rock. This digital currency is taking the fintech world by storm. The price per bitcoin has risen to over $5,000 just in the last month. Keep in mind though that you can always own fractions of a bitcoin. While some treat it as a speculative asset, others are simply using it as a way to pay for things online. Rather than sending your nephew a postcard with a couple of crisp bills in it, send them a Bitcoin tshirt with a wallet address you set up for them and load with some Bitcoin. Great idea for nerds!

If you have a friend that recently came back from some travels, consider picking up a Scratch travel map. Check out the website 1dea.me – they’re currently selling them online. They come in a bunch of different styles, personally I prefer their “Travel Map Black” version, which looks a bit more modern and won’t bring back any traumatic memories from geography class. Consider treating yourself to one while you’re at it, they’re pretty inexpensive and allow you to humble-brag all of the wild places you’ve been.

This set is meant for the gas cookers so keep that in mind. Everything breaks down super small ensuring you’ve got plenty of room in your bag for those cans of beans you can’t live without.
