Since it’s creation, Kickstarter has boomed into the most popular platform on the web when it comes to getting ideas off the ground and shipping out quality products to loyal consumers. The best products on Kickstarter make for great gift ideas for your family, friends…or yourself. We’ve put together a list of the most popular, so you can start writing your Christmas list early.
Today we are going to highlight three of the most successful Kickstarter campaign products.
1. Pebble Time Smartwatch
The Pebble Time Smartwatch is officially the most successful campaign on Kickstarter, with almost 80,000 backers pledging $20 million. It seems to be the watches unique build design and proprietary systems that led to people backing its development.
The watch’s e-ink screen, like those in e-readers, are more battery friendly – meaning it can get a whopping 7 days battery life!
As the watch is designed by an independent party, it’s able to work with both Android and Apple.
It has a unique interface, that allows users to scroll backwards and forwards through a timeline.
The pebble time smartwatch has clearly been able to fill a niche in the market. People looking for great build quality, long battery life and the ability to link their smartwatch to any platform.
2. Coolest Cooler
The Coolest Cooler is the ultimate party aid. What at first glance seems to be a normal cooler, is actually a margarita making sound system with usb charging! With over $13 million pledged by 63,000 backers, the cooler is the second most successful Kickstarter campaign.
The features that made this beast so popular include:
A built in blender that can rush ice
A bluetooth waterproof speaker
USB charging for your phone
Chopping boards, gear storage and a built in light
3. The Baubax Travel Jacket
We were surprised by the third most successful Kickstarter campaign, with almost 45,000 backers and $9 million pledged. What at first glance appears to be a normal jacket, is anything but. The Baubax Travel jacket has 15 features to make travel better, other than keeping you warm and looking cool.
Some of these features include:
A neck pillow for those long trips
An eye mask for sleeping on the move
Built in gloves to save your hands from evil AC

It’s obvious why this jacket is so popular, it has something for everyone! The product is also available in four different styles – sweatshirt, windbreaker, bomber and blazer.
As you can see, the most successful Kickstarter campaigns are evidently so popular due to the unique and quality products they aim to develop.
The three most popular campaigns are evidently different, yet all share the nature of being unprecedented, clever purchases for the discerning consumer.
