Team Indiegogo’s Holiday Gift Roundup (12/7/12)


Every week, we give team members at Indiegogo an opportunity to talk about the campaigns that have caught their attention. In honor of the holiday season, we wanted to share some campaigns and perks that might inspire your gift shopping!


Bestie – Chinatown’s Finest Currywurst

Location: Vancouver, Canada

No better gift than a Sausage Card for the sausage lover in your life!


iLumi – The World’s Most Intelligent Light Bulbs

Location: Dallas, Texas

Intelligent lights for the holidays!


Trash Amps CAN Speaker – Gen 2!

Location: Sunnyvale, California

After seeing the Trash Amp video demo and concept, I knew I had to get one. It even allows room for customization as you can choose your from over 50 cans and grills. Perfect after-the-holidays gift for yourself or others that takes recycling to another level!


Spuni: a revolutionary first spoon for infants

Location: New York, New York

This Christmas, I’m buying our 5-month old baby George the Spuni revolutionary infant spoons on Indiegogo.  These make great stocking stuffers for all the little ones and new moms on your list.  Our little George just started eating solids, and they wind up all over his pretty face, clothes, and hands. I’m psyched to try these great looking, ingenious spoons.  Happy Holidays from the Indiegogo family!


Airship Wing Pin – American Made

Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Abbey Manalli, an artist and designer based in Wisconsin (USA), creates beautiful accessories for brands that have never quite existed, inspired by a fanciful alternative history of the world. Her new Airship Wing Pin – an elegant lapel pin available in nickel, bronze, silver, and even gold! – would be a perfect holiday gift for the steampunk lover in your life.


Bring Back Word Up Community Bookshop

Location: New York, New York

Happy to support a place that brings a diverse community together AND I got a t-shirt.


StickNFind – Bluetooth Powered ultra small Location Stickers

Location: Davie, Florida

The sticknfind campaign is so awesome. I am forever misplacing my keys, just stick one of these puppies on my keychain and I wilI be all set!


Misfit Shine: an elegant, wireless activity tracker

Location: San Francisco, California

I bought my mom a misfit shine because it gets at the core of what she loves – activity and beautiful, inspiring design. I love the idea of getting Indiegogo campaign perks as holiday gifts – even with the understanding of the risk that comes with that. I like the idea of being able to find something truly unique and notable, supporting someone’s passion and letting my friends and family participate in the creation of something amazing.  A lot of times, the journey is as interesting as the destination…

Renee/Customer Happiness

Pebble Smart Doggie Doorbell

Location: Eugene, Oregon

Gifting this nifty doorbell for my friend who is an engineer and proud parent of two smart cats and one young pup! Looking forward to seeing it in action!


‘Frankie’s Busy Day’ and ‘Coffee Cats’

Location: White River Junction, Vermont

I am not shy about my love for cats. I also love the holidays because I get to spend time with my family (and my cat, Tuck). It’s not surprising, then, that my holiday pick would be cat themed. Rachel Dukes’ comics capture the essence of cats in a funny way, and I can’t wait to get her books!
