2020 Holiday Gift Trends
December 9, 2020
According to NPD Group, 40% of consumers are looking for gifts that bring joy this holiday season. Below you’ll find a list of gifts and gifting trends geared towards bringing joy this holiday season while shopping safely.
The Gift that Gives Back
This holiday season many of us are looking for ways to shop green and give gifts that give back. Technology gifts are hotter than ever and some have thankfully become more sustainable.
LifeProof is known for its WaterProof, DropProof, DirtProof, SnowProof cases, and now they have a full line of sustainable phone cases, but with the same durability and protection, we all love about them. The new LifeProof WAKE case is made with over 85% ocean-based plastic. It’s sleek in design, comes in 4 different colors and when you purchase a case from LifeProof, LifeProof will make a donation to one of their non-profit partners of your choice on your behalf. So it’s a gift you can feel good about giving.
The Educational Gift
Educational gifting is also trending. Virtual learning has forced many parents to find ways to make learning at home fun. The GraviTrax Starter Set for instance is an interactive marble run and construction toy set that lets kids experiment with concepts such as gravity and magnetism, infusing playtime with some fun learning. You can create different tracks and work together or independently to figure out the fastest way to get your marble to the finish line, and you can add accessories to take your tracks to even greater heights. A really great hands-on toy that helps develop problem-solving skills!
Safe & Easy Holiday Shopping
Many retailers are finding ways to make holiday shopping easier and safer than ever before. Once again Macy’s has a great selection of toys for everyone on your list and at all price points. You can find everything from classic board games, to The Avengers and Disney favorites like Frozen. Macy’s makes it super easy to shop with their convenient payment and shipping options such as buy online, pick up in-store, same-day delivery with DoorDash and you can always split your online purchase into 4 easy payments with Klarna.
With a lot more time at home, crafting gifts have become very popular. The ScanNCut DX SDX85 is a great gift idea for the crafting enthusiast and the family looking for fun creative ways to spend time together. Use it for last-minute holiday cards, festive decorations, and more. This is the only electronic cutting machine with true auto-blade sensing technology and a built-in scanner. It has 251 built-in designs, so you can get crafting right out of the box! Or you can easily transfer your own unique designs to the machine via USB or WiFi.
I hope this list helps! I’m wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!
