Americans seeking the perfect gift, holidays fast approaching

News

Christmas is nearly here and Americans are still looking for the perfect gift.

Justin Burr of Google said, “According Google shopping data that we have, 42% of people actually wait until the last minute to buy their gifts, and I’m part of that as well.”

Shoppers are told to give back to the environment with eco-friendly gifts such as Bee’s Wrap sustainable food storage.

For the kids on your list,give the gift of learning with toys that teach such as the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit.

“Having stem toy doesn’t mean it has to be a boring toy if you’re into Harry Potter, there’s a wand teaches you how to program,” said Bridget Carey of CNET. 

The Labo vehicle kit lets kids build game accessories for the Nintendo Switch one of the holiday’s hottest game consoles.

“So you might spend time snapping together cardboard for a steering wheel for a game where you’re driving around,” said Carey.

Tech accessories such as wireless headphones are useful gifts for those already getting a big ticket item like a new phone or laptop.

“Things like webcam covers which are great for privacy, extra long charging cables which is a personal fav of mine,” said Chaim Gartenberg of Verge.

Experts say to skip the gift card rack.

“Don’t just get the Starbucks gift card, it’s impersonal, and it means I don’t know you well enough,” said Professor of Morgan Ward of Emory University.

Instead, an experience such as a spa treatment, cooking class or tickets to a concert.

May be more meaningful than a material gift.

And you can get it quickly online as late as Christmas morning.
