Gift ideas for Christmas
Are you looking for one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts or food presents? If so, we have just the right thing for you: unusual gift ideas from our start-ups!

An ideal item to bring to a Christmas dinner is a healthy soup from UrbanSoup. There’s something for every palate, from Mediterranean to Asian. The founders Daniel Schmel and Tim Maiwald have just opened their second shop in the Munich city centre. Soups can also be ordered on the internet.

How about grilling up some Grillido sausages during the holidays? The start-up was featured on the TV show “Höhle der Löwen” (Lions’ Den). Grillido has now expanded its product range to more than 30 different varieties, including a meatless sausage for vegetarians. You can purchase the low-fat, high-protein sausages and salamis on the internet, as well as at Rewe and Edeka shopping markets.

Gift ideas for Christmas

If a friend or family member is looking to grow their own vegetables at home, agrilution offers just the right gift: the plantCube. Special LEDs and optimal soil create the ideal conditions for growing any kind of herb or vegetable. About the size of small refrigerator, the plantCube will fit in any kitchen.

If your nearest and dearest enjoy working out, then give them the gift of a mobile running coach from evalu. The intelligent software evalu.run receives data from sensors located in the trainers’ insoles, enabling it to provide specialised tips for running. Although the product isn’t on the market yet, you can order it in advance. It’s scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2017.

And if you’re interested in getting creative yourself, you can also make your own personal gifts in our MakerSpace. For example, in the Christmas workshop, you can make Christmas tree ornaments and other festive decorations. Further information about the Christmas workshop in the MakerSpace is available here.

And even if you’re not interested in creating your own items, why not give a gift of a membership in the MakerSpace?
The MakerSpace Christmas Special, the monthly membership for half price, is still available until 31 December 2016:

We wish you a wonderful Advent season and a joyful Christmas!
