Gift ideas for Christmas


Lily Tarticchio, Of The Talon staff

With the holidays coming up, many of us are spending our time and money on gifts for our friends and family. 

This often leaves people wondering, what gifts should I ask for? This is a tough question for those who don’t have that one thing they’ve been wanting for a while. 

Many variations of gifts are popular this year, such as technological presents, room decor, and apparel.

Some of the highest trending apparel and clothing items for teen girls would be Dr. Marten boots, Ugg slippers, rectangle 90’s inspired sunglasses, hair clips, zodiac sign jewelry, Fjallraven backpacks, and colored puffer jackets. Other gifts could include ceramic hair irons and brushes, liquid blush, skin care mini fridges, loungewear, and polaroid cameras.

Popular gifts for boys this year include the Nintendo Switch, bomber and flannel jackets, fleece joggers, inflatable lounge chairs, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Madden NFL 20, and the Playstation 5. 

General technological gifts are also trending. Popular ideas include the iPhone 11 or 12, Airpod Pros, JBL Wireless bluetooth speakers, LED light strips, and virtual reality headsets. 

An honorable mention of a very unique gift that’s becoming more popular is a Cameo celebrity greeting. These start at only $20 and allow people to receive a personal video message with their favorite celebrities.
