10 Cool Gifts I Really Want For Christmas

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Last week Eric, my fiance, asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Truth be told, I didn't know what to tell him.

We are getting married next fall, so asking for housewares from Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY) or home decor from TJX's (TJX) HomeGoods (my go-to retailer) seemed silly since I'm having a bridal shower. I could've told him I wanted a gift card to Kohl's (KSS) or that I wanted to upgrade to the Apple (AAPL) iPhone 5s, but since it's a special year for us -- as in this is the last year we will actually have disposable funds considering how much the wedding is costing us and then we plan to buy a house after that -- I wanted to think out of the box.

It got me thinking, "Hey this could be a good story idea!!" So, what are some of the coolest gift ideas out there?

Following up on the "8 Black Friday Deals I Would Totally Buy" story, here are 10 gifts, in no particular order, that I would love to get but that I'm sure Eric would NEVER think to give me. He better read this story for inspiration!

Editor's note: Eric, you better get her at least one or two of these items. I'm not kidding.
