Christmas is coming around the corner and that means present shopping is coming, along with all of the worry about getting the right gift. With all of the new creations and trends that have recently come out, how does one choose? Here are a few ideas of this year’s hottest Christmas presents that will hopefully help all gift givers this holiday season.

For the gamers, there of course is the exciting Samsung Gear VR – Virtual Reality Headset priced at $99.99 and the Microsoft Xbox One S. The Iphone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 are hot sellers, unsurprisingly. A few more popular upgrades are ASUS Chromebook flip, Amazon Echo, and the UE Boom 2 Wireless speaker. But the Amazon Echo has a popular competitor, the Google Home which is less expensive than its rival.

For the photographer in your life, consider getting them the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II. If that’s out of a shopper’s price range, the Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 8 Instant Camera, which is a modern version of a polaroid, provides a good substitute. The Handheld Pac-Man Arcade Game from Toys R Us also gives off retro vibes and is great gift for kids.

If you know someone who’s become a bit of a fixer-upper, then the Tekton 45-Piece 3/8-Inch Drive Socket Set With Ratchet, sold at the Home Depot, will take their game to the next level.
The Fitbit Charge 2 is a great gift for all relatives or friends. PowerBlock Sport 24-Piece Dumbbell Set is a fair priced set of free weights that won’t take up much space. For the makeup lovers in your life, the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection provides a multitude of options.

There’s also the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation and Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette. Another great gift for girls is the Hughapy knitted Mermaid Tail Blanket which comes in sizes for kids, teens, and adults. The trendy choker necklaces have proven to be a popular buy this season as well.

The board game of the year, perfect for people of all ages, is ‘Speak Out’ Game from Hasbro. The hottest toy from 2016 is the Hatchimals Egg. A popular new release is the Pokemon Z-Ring Interactive Set.

Whatever your budget, The Anchor hopes you find just the right gift for everyone on your list. And remember, in the end, it truly is the thought that counts.
