If you (like me!) are the type of person who leaves Christmas shopping to the last minute and ends up at the mall at 9pm on Christmas Eve, it might be time to get organized and pre-order some gifts now! Kickstarter is a great platform to find unique gifts for kids and adults alike, but you need to get in early to ensure the projects are funded and released in time.

Age range: All ages

Starting price: $36

A great way to send the kids (or your partner!) outside for some fresh air, the Baddy launches shuttlecocks to replicate an actual human playing the game, and can be set for different ability levels.
