With a successful Christmas season now behind us, we鈥檙e already getting our butts in gear and starting to prep for the New Year. We鈥檝e picked the perfect activity for New Year鈥檚 Eve, written out our resolutions and done a complete deep clean of our apartment (we even got around to washing our nasty makeup brushes). Now with some time to finally kick back, we thought we would treat ourselves by browsing through the latest Kickstarter and Indiegogo products that caught out eyes during Christmas鈥 but we couldn鈥檛 buy for ourselves until we knew they weren鈥檛 waiting under the tree. Happy shopping!


1. Carat Pro: We wouldn鈥檛 be surprised if these headphones were actually from the future (Doc Brown, is that you?). Designed for the fitness junkie, these in-ear wireless earbuds have the ability to track stats, coach you throughout your workout and, of course, play your sweet workout tunes.


2. BumpOut: If you thought that there couldn鈥檛 be any more innovation to the portable speaker, think again. BumpOut features a sleek design that fits comfortably in your pocket and is water resistant (AKA get ready for dance-worthy shower tunes!). But what鈥檚 most impressive is its ability to attach directly to your phone or laptop鈥 for party jams on-the-go, duh.


3. Jungle Tea: Where are my tea ladies at? Lippia javanica and Fadogia ancylantha teas have been harvested in the jungles of Africa for thousands of years but have rarely made the trip overseas. Now with new research on their medicinal properties (they help sooth everything from arthritis to diabetes) the team behind Jungle Tea are finally bringing the delicious beverages to the US.


4. ikiPele: Cozy stargazing, outdoor lounging and s鈥檓ore making are just some of the activities you can do when you get your hands on this cool tech. The ikiPele (which means small volcano in Hawaiian) is a sustainable pellet heater that uses CO2 neutral wood pellets to give you a cozy heater that鈥檚 safe for you AND the environment.


5. Air: With almost $3 million raised by 22,000 backers, it鈥檚 safe to say that the people LOVE this new product. Air is the first acoustic device in the world to implement carbon nanotube technology, which means you can charge it right in the sleek carrying case. It鈥檚 estimated to ship out in April, so it鈥檚 perfect for when you finally get fed up with your AirPods.


6. Stealth: Let鈥檚 be honest; ab day sucks. That鈥檚 what makes Stealth so genius: Instead of simply counting down the seconds until you鈥檙e finished, Steal makes you focus on an integrated mobile game while doing an elevated plank. All it takes is just three minutes a day to start strengthening your core鈥 and beating your high score.

7. Queen Girls: With so many inspirational figures IRL, it鈥檚 crazy someone hasn鈥檛 thought of this sooner. Jimena and Andrea co-created Queen Girls to transform real inspiration women into fairy tales you actually want your kiddos to read. The first story in the series focuses on Bessie Coleman, the first African American woman in the world to receive her pilot鈥檚 license, and will be available in English and Spanish.
