Top 5 Most Popular Christmas Gifts
It’s not easy to find a Christmas gift for the person who has everything. A lot of people are just hard to buy for, but that doesn’t mean you should give up and stuff coal in their stocking. If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas present for someone in your life, check out this list of the top five most popular Christmas gifts for inspiration.
Movies are one of the easiest Christmas presents to give. Blockbuster hits are a popular way of saying, “I don’t know what you really want for Christmas, so let’s just watch a movie.” DVDs are easy to wrap, inexpensive, and fun for both the gift-recipient and the gift-giver…if the gift-recipient is up for a movie night, that is. Just pay attention to his or her personal collection; independent films are often a safer bet, because people are less likely to already own them.
During those chilly winter nights, flannel pajamas are the next best thing to a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Because they are a classic style, they’ll never go out of fashion, and they’ll last forever. You don’t have to stick to the red and black pajamas either; look for printed options or colorful fabrics that will best suit your friend or family member.
Gift baskets are popular Christmas presents for teachers, older female relatives, and neighbors. For some reason, gift baskets full of body lotion, scented spray, and other pretty bottled liquids that will make your bathing experience more fun are popular Christmas gifts. Although giving someone a gift basket might be a not-so-subtle commentary on their personal hygiene, most people at least appreciate the pretty basket.
Who wants a candle when we have full access to electricity? The truth is, no one really asks for candles for Christmas, but particularly sweet smelling candles are versatile; they can make an appearance at the dinner table or in a romantic bedroom. The candles that come in glass jars are not only functional, they also double as a nice decoration after the candle has melted down.
There’s nothing that gets you in the Christmas spirit more than the all-time favorite candy cane. Although candy canes are traditionally red and white with a peppermint flavor, candy makers have come up with all sorts of crazy flavors over the years. Try mint chocolate, bubble gum, or fruity flavors such as strawberry, cherry, or banana split.
