Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Would you believe it's already time to start thinking about Christmas shopping?  For those who don't want to be shopping last minute, now is definitely the time to start. Stores are already advertising holiday specials and picks for gifts. Although it's a little different from what we usually post here, I think this could still be helpful to those of you are having trouble coming up with gift ideas. This post will be a list of what's popular right now for everyone on your list!

Christmas Present Ideas 2017

For Kids

It turns out that Hatchimals were not a one-hit wonder.  It's very rare for something new like that to have such a huge success more than once.  But here we are again, one year after Hatchimals were introduced and there is yet another buying frenzy. They have released their new line "Hatchimals Surprise" that has two twin Hatchimal species inside one egg.  These are already selling out online at some stores.  Early reviewers seem upset that these new twin Hatchimals don't move around like the first edition (singles) did.

There is another toy that is already selling out regularly, and it's exclusively from Walmart. It is the Spark Kitchen Sink and it has the ability to create real running water. It is for ages 3 and up. Your local stores will most likely be sold out of them, I have seen it in stock online for in-store pickup once.  Just keep refreshing the page when you have free time, or sign up for their in-stock e-mail alerts.

For Women

I'm sure a dream gift for many women is the infamous red stand mixer from KitchenAid.  They have become a staple appliance used in almost every online recipe I find for baked goods and anything dough based.  Not only that, Kitchenaid has many attachments for the device that turn it into the only food prep appliance you'll ever need.

Moving out of the kitchen to the craft room, there has been a big movement in the craft world recently.  The planner movement.  Not only is planning great for organizing, but it's also fun and stress-reliving. If you know a gal whose been meaning to get organized, who loves stationary and journaling, or who has mentioned wanting to start using a planner, check out the one below.

It's hard for me to think about planning and not mention the Cricut machine. Used by crafters for many years, these cutting machines have recently gained more popularity in the planning movement. You can use them to cut out your own planner stickers. You can find plenty of "printable" planner stickers compatible with Cricut on Etsy.

Crict has also released the Cricut Maker this year. It can cut many more materials than the previous explore models, but it comes at a higher price tag. For those who are more into beauty, I would recommend Josie Maran's argan oil line.  Many people swear by these products, and Josie's skin looks stunning when she is demonstrating the product herself.  They are mostly moisturizers so it is a safe gift to give because everyone can use it.

For Men

The first pick is a surprisingly affordable 4K Smart TV.  Besides the curved screens, 4K resolution is the biggest trend in TV's right now.
It contains almost four times the number of pixels on a screen compared with 1080p technology. via: https://filmora.wondershare.com/video-editing-tips/4k-vs-1080p.html
As usual, depending on the screen size (inches) and what brand, these can get quite expensive.  Below is a more affordably priced one, with a good customer rating.

Much like the infamous red stand mixer we mentioned earlier, there are certain brands that me long for as well. Dubbed the "father of all coolers", this YETI Tundra cooler is perfect for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors.

Teens

These picks are some of the most popular products for high schoolers right now.

Teen Girls

Have you heard of KPOP? It's Korean pop music and it is taking over America.  Some find it hard to believe that with the exception of a few words, the songs are sung in all Korean, and English speakers find them fun to listen to.  But with their colorful styling, fun dance moves, and upbeat music, it's hard not to enjoy it. Here are some album packages (CD + photo books) of the most popular boy groups right now.

I would suggest doing some recon first and find out if your teen likes KPOP, and what group they are most interested in. For more general gifts, see the picks below.

Teen Boys

There are many new releases in the gaming world coming just in time for Christmas.  Right now, they are only available through pre-order.  I would highly suggest pre-ordering if you are interested in buying these because they will probably be hard to find come November and December. You might have also seen these Bluetooth speakers around. They are quite popular and the kids like to carry them around everywhere to listen to music with their friends.

That's all for our Christmas 2017 present guide.  If you are having a hard time finding something for someone in particular on your list, I hope we've helped give you.   I know even just looking at other's lists can give me inspiration that leads me to think of the perfect gift. Good luck!
