Cool hobbies have to be on your bucket list, so why not start with some fun ones right now?

If you’re looking to spend 2018 doing a bit less binge-watching of Games of Thrones then get your cool hobbies vibe activated.

Check out these totally cool hobbies that enrich your life and help you to spend your time a little more productively (even if you do end up doing them while you binge watch your Netflix favorites too)…

Cross Stitch

Okay, so on the face of it, cross stitch might not seem like the coolest, most exciting hobby there is, but it’s been getting really popular for awhile now. Why?

Because it’s affordable, fairly easy to pick up and you can let your creativity run wild. Maybe you could cross stitch some of your favorite TV show characters and sell them on Etsy if you get good at it?

Brewing Beer

Artisan beers and spirits, I’m sure you’ll have noticed, are all the rage, so why not get in on the ground floor, not only by drinking at the best microbreweries around but by actually creating your own drinks too?

You’ll start off with a simple home brewing kit, and before you know it, you’ll be looking at steam boilers and filter systems so that you can start your own microbrewery. It really is that addictive!

Channel our inner artist and let your feelings flow out onto the canvas in the medium of paint. If you discover you don’t have any real talent, well that’s okay – just call it abstract art and everyone will be impressed, maybe, possibly.

Base Jumping

Looking to bring a bit more excitement into your life? Not easily scared? Want to spend more time outdoors? Give base jumping a try. What’s that?

Basically, it’s the act of climbing up a  high structure, natural or manmade and jumping off it.It’s not for the faint-hearted, but it is pretty popular right now, and it will give you a rush.


Looking for something a little more sedate? Try your hand at the ancient Japanese art of origami. People will be amazed at how quickly you can turn a square of paper into a crane or how cool your tips are compared to theirs! Give it a go.

Learn a Language

It’s never too late to learn another language and being able to speak French, Italian or Chinese can be very rewarding. It can also come in very useful and make you seem a whole lot more interesting and sophisticated.

The best thing about making learning how to sew your own clothing your hobby is that not only does it give you a rewarding way to spend your time, but it also enables you to actually take control of your own wardrobe to create clothes that no one else will have and which will fit you perfectly.

Of course, there is never a bad time to learn how to cook better. Find a cookery course that appeals to you, attend regularly and blow your friends and family away with amazing meals that they won’t believe you’ve cooked. It’s a great investment of your time and money.


So many cool hobbies. What will you be doing with your spare time in 2018?
