As the season approaches, Christmas shopping is coming in full swing this year. With the worker shortage due to COVID-19, many people are scrambling to gather gifts before they are out of stock.  Christmas also comes up with questions like  “What should I get?” For many people, this time comes with stress. Many popular trends have risen this year. These Christmas gifts ensure that everyone will enjoy the presents, no matter the recipient.

TECHNOLOGY:  For many years, this category has topped the list of almost all Christmas lists. Whether the new iPhone is out or not, popular devices have long been on the wishlist of every teenager alike.

-Charging station: A must-have for any individual with multiple devices. The charging station allows for simple charging for all your devices at one time and one place.

-Bluetooth Speaker: Many speakers have been the topic of many conversations that every teenager will love to have for Christmas. Popular brands include JBL, Beats and Bose.

-Smart Watches: A phone on a wrist. Smartwatches are often compatible with phones and can call, message, record fitness, and do much more with a few simple taps.

“I have a few devices at home, and I’ve wanted a charging station for a really long time. It’s much easier charging everything all at once than having a different place to plug in your devices every night. And when I am in a rush, I do not need to walk around my room, and I can just go to the station and grab what I need,” says Torianne Hurst (9).

Tis the season. Presents are a big part of the Christmas spirit. People have always gone out of their way to find the right present for everyone they know. “I think Christmas is also about family and friends and just being together for the holidays. That has always been my favorite part of Christmas whenever I see a relative I haven’t seen in a long time,” said Morales-Jones (11).
