It’s always fun to see which gifts hit the top of the list and stay there throughout the holiday shopping season.

For the kids it’s everything from the new Barbie DreamCamper and anything related to gaming including wireless controllers and computer games.

The season’s hottest gifts are still the tried and true including LEGO, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Paw Patrol, peddle and electronic cars and of course, a Nerf Blaster is always in!

For the adults, Sharper Image says TV wireless headphones, anything for grilling including a digital BBQ fork and a canned beer draft system are on the nice list.

There’s also the latest infrared heating pad, oversized lounging hoodie and the foot and leg spa.

Gift cards have stayed in vogue because they’re practical and they do still say “I love you, Merry Christmas!” lists the top gifts as the mini drone, portable photo printer, golf practice net, AirPods Pro and a piece of romantic jewelry that tells your sweetheart how much they mean to you year-round.

There are definitely gifts that are valuable that do not cost money including taking care of your mental health and happiness.

It’s important to be realistic. Remember families and traditions change and grow and your Christmas celebrations may look different than those of your past but they are just as meaningful and important.

Don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re feeling lonely send a text, email, call a friend or get out of the house and donate your time to lift your spirits.

Keep healthy habits amidst the holiday hustle and bustle.

It’s ok to say no if you’re feeling overwhelmed.

There is a truth in the warm feelings, goodwill and love create during this busy season, that includes self-love and acceptance.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
