There seems to be an endless supply of new, exciting and cool things to buyb online.

Finding cool stuff to buy online shouldn't be intimidating... it should be fun! So, to help make things easier, I scoured through tens of thousands of products to create one concise list of the best 101 cool things to buy.

Tech & Gear

Here are 19 best cool tech things to buy:

amazon echo

Back to All Cool Things

101. Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo is a voice-activated personal assistant that allows you to control different aspects of your day-to-day life with simple voice commands. Powered by Amazon's "Alexa" voice-activated cloud service, you can ask Echo to do things like:

  • Play music
  • Update your schedule
  • Check the weather
  • Check the score of your favorite team’s game
  • Virtually anything else you might need

Just turn it on and Echo can hear your commands and questions from up to 15 feet away.

Here's the bottom line:

Almost anything you can do with a computer, Alexa can do for you…all you have to do is ask.

ec technology foldable keyboard

Back to All Cool Things

100. EC Technology Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard

Sync the EC Technology Bluetooth keyboard to your smartphone or tablet...

...and you can instantly use a full keyboard in place of your device’s small, constrictive keyboard. When you’re done using it, fold it up and put it back in your pocket (it’s around 6” x 4” when folded).

It’s made from aircraft grade aluminum, meaning it’s not only lightweight but durable.

Back to All Cool Things

99. 36800mAh Portable Charger

The Mah portable charger has the highest power output of any charger currently on the market.

On one full charge, it can recharge an iPhone up to thirteen times, or two tablets at the same time.

It’s lightweight, compact and portable, making it great for travelers or people on the go.

ice orb floating speaker

Back to All Cool Things

98. ICE Orb Floating Bluetooth Speaker

This is definitely a case where form follows function.

Looking at the speaker, I’m sure you’ll agree:

This floating speaker looks awesome.

But by floating, the sound quality is also enhanced! With normal speakers, the sound waves come into direct contact with the surface the speaker is resting on. This muffles and dampens the sound.

By floating, the sound waves aren’t adversely influenced by any hard surface...

...creating a truly unique (and cool looking) sound-enhancing feature.

And it gets better:

You can even remove the orb and take it to go as a portable Bluetooth speaker.

amazon fire stick

Back to All Cool Things

97. Amazon Fire TV Stick

The Amazon Fire Stick plugs into the back of your TV, and allows you to watch Netflix, HULU, and HBO GO shows and movies directly on your TV.

You can store 1 GB of movies on the Fire Stick and even use it to display your phone’s screen on your TV (so you can use your useful smartphone apps on the big screen.)


Not only is the Amazon Fire stick voice activated, but it also comes with a wireless remote control (two powerful features you won’t find on the competing Chromecast).

loha wide angle & macro camera lense kit

Back to All Cool Things

Easily change the lenses to capture two distinct types of high-quality photos.

mpow swift bluetooth sport headphones

Back to All Cool Things

95. Mpow Swift Bluetooth Sport Headphones

Many people assume wireless headphones come with poor sound quality...

...and with many low cost Bluetooth headphones, that’s absolutely true.

But here’s the thing:

These Mpow headphones were designed with apt-X (which allows Bluetooth devices to stream full music files) and noise reduction technology to produce an exceptional sound quality.

They work from an impressive distance of 10 meters (about 32 feet) so you can play music from your smartphone without having to carry it around.

dji phantom drone v2.0

Back to All Cool Things

94. DJI Phantom Drone V2.0

It can go up to 34 miles per hour and has a smart battery that provides up to 28 minutes of flight time (from an impressive range of 1000+ feet.)

The Phantom V2.0 even comes equipped with a GoPro mount... making it perfect for photography and film making.

amazon basic indoor hdtv

Back to All Cool Things

93. Amazon Basics Indoor HDTV Antenna

So you’ve gotten rid of cable in favor of HBO Go, Hulu, and Netflix.

While you’re likely saving a lot of money...'ve lost access to the important basic cable stations (like CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox) that bring you sports games and news shows.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to get basic cable channels without having to pay cable's monthly fees?

The Amazon Basics Indoor HDTV Antenna lets you do just that.

The HDTV antenna picks up basic cable channels like CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox… all for free. Just plug the included 18-foot coaxial cable into your TV, stick the antennae near a window, and you're ready to watch in full HD!

Back to All Cool Things

92. Glocalme Roaming Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot

The Glocalme Roaming Mobile Hotspot is a powerful, portable WiFi Hotspot that allows you to connect to the internet almost anywhere in the world.

It also comes with five custom pulse settings (rain, massage, mist, economy, and water saver) that control the way you shower.

Here's the best part:

crosley record player

Back to All Cool Things

90. Crosley Record Player

Record players are making a comeback for two reasons:

  1. They’re nostalgic and add a touch of class to any room they’re in.
  2. They produce a higher sound quality than today’s digital recordings.

You may be wondering:

With all of today’s modern advancements, how do record players produce a higher quality sound?

Music is added to vinyl (the material records are made from) through an analog recording. Analog produces a higher sound quality as it’s able to capture sound waves better than digital recording.


The Crosley Record Player is one of the most popular record players on the market because of its affordability and how easy it is to use.

Where most record players require you to buy an amp and speakers before you can play a record, the Crosley has both a built in tone control and full range speaker... meaning you can use it right out of the box.

At just $59... for a complete record playing solution... the Crosley is a great step into the world of vinyl.

Here's really makes the Cube a cool thing to buy:

corkcicle whiskey wedge

So... you want your whiskey chilled but you don’t want its flavor diluted?

Traditionally to chill whiskey, you add ice... but eventually that ice melts, which waters down your whiskey and dilutes its flavor.

With all that extra space you can store more stuff in your fridge... like beer.

wine enthusiast allure aerating decanter

Back to All Cool Things

68. Wine Enthusiast Allure Aerating Decanter

Decanting red wine is hugely important for two reasons:

  1. It gently and thoroughly aerates your wine, allowing it to open up. This adds oxygen to the wine and can improve its flavor and aroma.
  2. Some wines, like port and aged red wines, contain sediments (which have a bitter, astringent taste.) By slowly pouring wine into a decanter, you leave all the sediment behind... allowing you to fully appreciate the subtle flavors the wine has to offer.


Unlike most wine decanters, the Wine Enthusiast Allure Aerating Decanter is made with rippled glass.

Why does this matter?

As you pour your wine into the decanter, the ripples force the wine to spin and turn. This moves and mixes the wine, hugely improving the aeration process.

The Wine Enthusiast decanter even has an angled mouth to give you a drip-less pour.

It's broken down into a set of classes... with a class for each style of beer.

preston microwave bacon cooker

Back to All Cool Things

65. Preston Microwave Bacon Cooker

Everyone loves bacon...

...but a lot of people choose not to cook it at home for two main reasons:

  1. Cooking it is messy and disposing the fat is a pain.

The unique design of the Preston Microwave Bacon Cooker eliminates these two problems:

Solution to First Problem:

Add up to ten slices of bacon to the Preston, throw it in the microwave and in minutes you have delicious bacon. Clean up is easy:

wine of the month club

meat everything you need to know

Back to All Cool Things

61. Meat: Everything You Need to Know

If you want to become a better chef... one of the most important things to master is cooking meat.


As I’m sure you know, cooking meat can be intimidating:

  • There are multiple types of meat (chicken, steak, etc.),
  • each with their own cuts (flank, fillet, sirloin), and
  • there are a handful of cooking techniques to choose from and to master (grilling, roasting, pan frying).

To take the stress out of preparing meat, Pat LaFreida created Meat: Everything You Need to Know.

In his book, he shares his 30+ years of experience through an incredibly comprehensive, 256 page, full-color guide. It will teach you both basic and advanced techniques and information like:

  • How to cook different types of meat.
  • How to dry age meat.
  • How to order different cuts of meat from a deli or butcher.

And it gets better:

LaFreida included detailed, step-by-step instructions to prepare seventy-five of his family’s best recipes.

Back to All Cool Things

59. Bodum Eileen French Press Coffee Maker

If you love coffee, and you love the flavor of coffee... need to try coffee made with a French press.

Unlike a common electronic coffee machine, a French press doesn't use a paper filter (which soaks up some of the coffee beans' flavorful oils.)

This means that when you use a French press... get coffee that is richer, more flavor and slightly thicker than water.


This stylish gold-plated French press, from Bodum, is great, and such a cool thing to buy, for three reasons:

  1. It brews your coffee in just 4 minutes (much faster than a traditional French press.)
  2. All its parts are removable and completely dishwasher safe,
  3. The carafe (that part that holds your coffee) is made out of glass... not plastic.

death wish world's strongest coffee

Back to All Cool Things

57. Death Wish World's Strongest Coffee

Death Wish Coffee is said to be the “World’s Strongest Coffee.”

It’s made from Robusta coffee beans... which are much higher in caffeine than the traditional Arabica coffee bean.

This, combined with Death Wish’s unique bean roasting process, produces a coffee that contains 200% more caffeine than your average cup of coffee.

Death Wish’s high caffeine content isn’t the only thing that makes it a great coffee:

  • It’s fair trade and USDA certified organic.
  • It’s brewed in micro batches… meaning when you order it, you’re getting coffee beans that were roasted less than a week ago.
  • It has a dark, rich, bold flavor (that’s not bitter from the high caffeine levels.)

And the best part?

If you aren’t totally impressed with your coffee, Death Wish will refund your money 100%. No questions asked.

Side note: Like I mentioned above, this is said to be the “World’s Strongest Coffee.” If you don’t have a high tolerance for caffeine, be careful drinking Death Wish.

53. Luckies of London Scratch Off Map

The Luckies of London Scratch Off Map is a must have for any traveler.

Every country on the Luckies of London map has a thin coating covering it. Each time you visit a new country, you scratch off the coating covering that country on the map (like you would a scratcher lottery ticket.)
