Bunch O Balloons Rapid Fill
If we’re being honest, the main reason we don’t have water balloon fights every weekend is because they’re time consuming to fill and in the end you spend almost three times as long filling them than actually pelting them at each other. Thankfully, some impatient person had an inventive mind and created a wonderful solution! These water balloons attach to the end of a hose, fill up, and pop off securely: A wonderful example of instant gratification not being a bad thing. Thankfully, this convenient balloon-filling product is very affordable. Less than $20, and you can give your friends, family, or even yourself a jolly good time. The multicolor aspect of this particular purchase ensures your yard will have a colorful rainbow of broken balloons scattered throughout the grass for as long as it takes to clean up!
GoSports Slammo Game Set
This four-player game is simply awesome. If you know you’ve got a competitive person on your gift list this year, you should really consider getting them this fast paced game. It’s a game that makes you feel like you’re spiking in volleyball or tennis ball, but requires a more precise aim from players. Your competitive streak is exercised with this game set and, depending on how hard you go, you’ll even break a sweat while running around. It is ultra portable, as everything collapses and fits into a drawstring bag that comes with your purchase. Players can get more and more flashy and advanced by doing trick shots as they hit and reflect the ball back onto the net and towards their opponents. Another huge bonus is that this company will replace any broken or misplaced parts as a part of their lifetime replacement warranty.
If you have a minimalist on your Christmas list this year, get them an experience rather than another item. This is perfect for that person who loves the outdoors or camping and also loves outdoor inspired wine. Who doesn’t want to experience sipping wine as deer quietly frolic nearby and crickets chirr from your every side? Just imagine drinking a glass of red while the smell of fallen oak and pine leaves filters through the air. If your friend has already experienced this beautiful picture and isn’t a fan, then maybe you should reconsider that friendship. This wine set is complete with plastic stemless wine glasses to prevent breakage while drinkers are out camping. Your friends will be the classiest couple in the forest, field, or wherever they decide to sleep under the stars.
Giant 4 In A Row Game
Let’s bring some nostalgia to the backyard! This giant lawn game will be sure to make a happy and permanent fixture in the yard. Undoubtedly, this is a great gift for people who love to entertain. Guests of all ages will adore the larger than life Connect 4. The wooden board is 31” x 23” and has 42 colored plastic chip game pieces. It’s well constructed and has great ratings from buyers on Amazon. While it is a great game, inside or out, you should remember that because it is made of wood you should keep it sheltered during extreme weather. If you want something that isn’t quite as nice looking, but can take anything the sky throws down, maybe look into the giant plastic ones instead.
WHAM-BAM Inflatable Bumper Ball We aren’t sure how to describe this product to its fullest. It’s just too hilarious and wonderful. It’s for anyone with even a single fun bone in his or her body. Imagine playing your favorite sports with these. Soccer suddenly has an entire new element to it. Get creative: try to play something like football or Frisbee! Good luck catching it with your arms encased by this giant plastic bubble – you’ll figure it out. Put it on during Red Rover, if your family is into stuff like that. Really, the possibilities are endless. You’re limited only by your imagination. Does that mean you’re the Green Lantern? Probably not, but you’re pretty darn close. Maybe try using some green glow sticks? Go get ‘em, tiger.
$500 and up
Alright, so you really want to impress your photograph-loving family member or SO. Money is not an issue. Well, that’s convenient. This camera ball thing is super dope and will inspire any photographer to check out new places or capture beloved old ones. Keep the price in mind, however, because unfortunately it’s pretty up there. To use this camera you toss it into the air, then when it reaches the peak of its tiny flight, it snaps a photo. Look closely though; this ball is covered with camera lenses! When you finally get your photos on your computer, you can look at your fancy 360-degree photos. We recommend that if you’re going to put forth the money, you should buy the Panono kit to ensure your newfangled camera is safe and has all accessories.
DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter
Geez, you’re certainly into giving crazy awesome gifts to this photographer person in your life.

It’s super smart, and automatically avoids obstacles. It’s got homing capabilities and can track moving objects as well. You’ve got an amazing gift if you decide to go with this product. Your person is going to be insanely excited to try it out, and forever grateful for the unique and awesome gift.
