These are the most popular gifts to give in 2023, according to Google
Shopping online for your holiday gifts is easier than shopping in-store. For one, there are tons of gift guides out there to help you get some ideas, whether you’re shopping for your grandma, your dad, your girlfriend or even your dog-crazy best friend. Nonetheless, today, Google released its Holiday 100, a report on the top 100 most-sought products in 2023, if you want even more ideas.
According to Google, search interest for a “human dog bed” spiked more than 1,650%, and the Cozyberry Candle Warmer has been the top-trending item in the interior decor category for the last 12 months. Clearly, people are tired and want better ways to relax and unwind — where’s the lie? On the other hand, people must be going out in style! Search interest for “lab-grown diamond tennis necklaces” doubled this year.
Dry, chapped lips be gone! Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm is a favorite amongst TikTokers, beauty buffs and those who just want softer lips. The silky smooth balm comes in seven colors, including a new sweet mint flavor.
Solo Stove first gained popularity during the pandemic with its smokeless firepits. Since then, the brand has expanded to make pizza ovens, camp stoves, patio heaters and more. Its Mesa model is a tabletop fire pit perfect for smaller spaces, roasting a few s’mores and adding a little warmth where needed.
Like the Stanley tumbler, you probably saw an equal amount of people wearing a Lululemon belt bag this year. It’s easy to stuff, convenient to wear, and, of course, stylish. Get it in 12 colors for $38.
On the other hand, the top trending tote bag brand of the year was Marc Jacobs. Head over to the brand’s website to find all the available colors and sizes. Snag the medium size for weekend outings, or the large size that fits a laptop for office-to-dinner days and traveling.
Google searches for mini crochet kits doubled this year. One favorite brand is Woobles, which makes DIY kits for small crocheted animals. They’re perfect for kids who like a DIY activity and adults looking for a fun, little stress reliever.
Stuart Weitzman is one of those legacy brands that will probably be around forever. Why? The comfortable, celeb-approved shoes look stylish and are high-quality, making them a worthy investment. That’s probably why Google searches for the brand have spiked every December since 2012. (Psst! If you want to save some money, make sure you check out the Stuart Weitzman Outlet online.)
"When my kids were little (and we were very poor), we went on trips to the pet store to look at the animals. It was like a mini trip to the zoo. We would always buy a treat for the dog while we were there. An hour of entertainment for a few bucks."
