While Black Friday and Cyber Monday's hot searches were for apparel, electronics and toys, consumers are also seeking more thoughtful gifts.
In the last month, searches for "personalized holiday gifts" have increased 160%. Other popular searches were "unique personalized gifts" and "personalized photo gifts". While traditional gift items, like electronics, are making a come back, people want to retain the sentiment of the holiday season.
As it is said, it's the thought that counts. Searches for homemade gifts have skyrocketed. "Homemade christmas gifts", "homemade gift ideas" and "homemade christmas ormanments" have grown 70% or more. A personal touch, along with a smaller price tag, are likely drivers.
Be sure to be on your best behavior leading into the holidays. "Best christmas gifts" is a top search, but "good christmas gifts" are more highly sought than "great christmas gifts". Here's hoping to get a great one!
