It's the season once again to start making lists and shopping for gifts! Holidays mark the time when everyone just flocks to the nearest mall and boutique to get the hottest gifts for family members, relatives and friends. While you may already have the list of people you might want to give presents for the holidays, it's always nice to know what the hottest selling gifts are.
Here are the actual best selling gifts from Gifts.com.
- The iPod Touch
The goodies from Apple just keep on rolling in. The iPod Touch is one of the most popular gifts for teenagers and it's easy to know why. This sleek device gives the user the chance to compile his favorite songs, music videos, TV episodes and even full length movies in a pocketable gadget. Aside from this, the iPod touch also doubles as a fairly decent Web browser thanks to its WiFi capability. While it may be tempting to give an iPhone, the financial commitment of having to be tied down to a cellular network for the services may prove burdensome to the person who will receive the present. With the iPod Touch, you get to give away a very sleek product without having to be suckered into some long term deal.
- The Nintendo Wii
Nintendo was pretty dead in the water a few years back, but that was way before the Nintendo introduced the Wii into the gaming market. Despite leaving you wanting more on the graphics component compared to other consoles like the Sony Playstation 3 or Microsoft's Xbox, the Wii pulls its own weight by providing a new gaming environment that allows players to truly interact with the game in 3-D. Instead of button mashing to no end, the Nintendo Wii allows users to move around and to really do the exact movements that the players on screen are doing! This revolutionary game play dynamic has made Wii games that simulate sports or first-person role playing games more enjoyable to play. This console is not just a gift for the kids and teens. Playing with the Nintendo Wii can be a great family activity.
Interestingly, the top selling holiday gifts for women include lots of luxurious sleep wear and pajamas. Whether a woman is married or still single, a nice nightie or a sexy piece of lingerie can definitely be a fabulous gift.
- Family Tree Picture Frames
This may come across as the odd gift out, but this is the best selling product for the seniors. The elderly enjoy reminiscing the good times and looking at photographs from the yesteryears so this would be an interesting way to put photos on a different medium.
- Alarm Clocks
Probably not what you expected, but alarm clocks have been selling well. With the economy on the downturn, time has become more precious and punctuality has taken an increased priority. Expect to receive one of these over the holidays.
Remember, giving gifts is not about being hot or being in. What's best to remember is the thought that you put into giving someone a present.
