A collection of 100 ideas for hobbies.

Updated on June 3, 2012

Fun stuff we like to do in our spare time.

As well as being enjoyable, hobbies are big business, we spend billions every year on doing things to fill our time. I have a lot of hobbies, (writing and photography being two of them, both of which are demonstrated here) and I'm fascinated by learning about what other people do and I have yet to try. Most people take up a hobby just for fun and others turn their hobbies into a wage.

I have compiled a list of 100 hobbies for you to enjoy and maybe even try for yourself, the first 10 are featured here just to give you a taster.


1. Stamp Collecting.

The first postage stamp was british and it was called the penny black.

9. Playing with a Yo-yo.

This hobby falls in and out of fashion every few years, its one of the cheapest hobbies to invest in and there are plenty of cool tricks to master if your willing to practice enough.

10. Dealing in antiques.

This is a very specialized hobby and you really do have to know what you're doing, however you can make a fair deal of money if you get good enough at it.

Well that's the first 10 of my 100 ideas for hobbies, I hope you enjoyed them and they have given you something to think about. If none of these have yet to appeal to you don't worry there is another 90 to come.
