Innovative gift ideas for Christmas from our start-ups and MakerSpace
Geschenkideen von unseren Start-ups

Are you looking for original, one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts? If so, we have just the right thing for you: unusual, innovative gift ideas from our start-ups!
And if you have the time and inclination, you can also create your own personal gifts in our MakerSpace.

Home-brewed beer in three days with the set from Braufässchen. Perfect for the holidays, with Christmas spices like orange, mixed peppercorns, clove, cinnamon, juniper berries, and star anise.

Beer from BABO comes already brewed and has a distinct blue colour through the addition of berry lemonade. In August, the start-up BABO Beverages made a successful pitch in the “lions’ den” and was able to conclude a deal.

Maybe you're in the market for something a bit more potent, like Heiland, a Doppelbock liqueur from the Beer Liqueur Foundation. The base ingredient is Bavarian beer. To it is added sugar, rum, and spices, all of which are regionally produced, where possible. On cold days, the founder trio recommends Heiland grog or warm Heiland with foamed milk topped with nutmeg and orange zest.

If your loved ones prefer drinking wine, then give them the interactive, at-home wine seminar from Probino. The set for two to four people contains six, 100-ml bottles – three whites, one rosé, and two reds – along with an accompanying booklet and four smart guides. The smart guides allow users to record their impressions, like colour, taste, and bouquet, and apply what they've already learned.

Do you also want your Christmas present to be sustainable? Here, too, we’ve got the right suggestion: bio-plastic toothbrushes from the start-up TIO, which are made of renewable materials.

At Sueco, you can find high-quality leather bags, wallets, key chains, and carrying cases for mobiles, tablets, and laptops. Sueco will provide you with either the finished product or a complete DIY kit, with everything you need to make it – upon request, even with customised engraving. Sueco is currently offering a Christmas special with a 10% discount.


In the MakerSpace, UnternehmerTUM’s new high-tech workshop, you can create your own one-of-a-kind, personal gifts and Christmas cards. At the Christmas workshop, you can create, e.g., Christmas tree ornaments or a mobile carrying case with customised decoration. Using the laser cutter, you can cut a variety of shapes and make customised gift tags.
