I have been watching some of the bestseller lists from various retailers and looking at Sunday circulars to figure out what some of the best presents will be for this holiday season. And I think I have found some great stuff to share with you here.
If you are ready to start shopping, go ahead and see my list of the hottest Christmas gifts for 2016. I have also added a blog post entitled Most Popular Christmas Gifts 2016 which break downs gift ideas by people: most popular gifts for men, most wanted gifts for her, etc. Between those two lists you should be able to find some things to get for Christmas.
Top Xmas Gifts 2016
Of course, toys are always a big Christmas seller in general. There are some new toys out this year that are sure to be popular. And there are also a few toy lines from last year that will still be a big hit with kids.
For older kids and teenagers you usually can’t go wrong with cell phone accessories or an iTunes card. Boys who are gamers will be looking for the latest PS4 or Xbox One games. Teen girls can be a bit tougher to shop for but I have found nail polish kits, lip gloss kits or just an Amazon gift card to be welcome choices most of the time.
For adults, expect to see a lot of electronics on most Christmas lists. I expect tablets like the latest iPad or the the Kindle Fire to be hugely popular gifts again this Christmas season. Computer and tablet accessories will also make a great gift for the person who already owns these items. Streaming media players have also become hot as more and more people watch their favorite TV shows on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.
But there are many non-electronic items that are classic gifts. I’m thinking of a watch or perfume for a woman, or a shaving kit for a man. There are always some unique twists on the old stand-by gift ideas to make them great. A gift basket suited to a person’s hobbies is also nice – something like a wine basket or even a golf basket.
But let’s be more specific.
