Everyone has a different holiday gifting strategy. While some people prefer to take the road less traveled with very unique gifts they’ve never seen before, there’s also something to be said for gifting hot-tickets items, perennial favorites and classic gifts that everyone is sure to love. To help you shop this year’s biggest trends (like wellness gifts, delicate jewelry, athleisure, squishy toys and work-from-home essentials) and gift with confidence, we’ve put together a list of the most popular Christmas gifts of 2021 that Good Housekeeping readers and Amazon shoppers are stocking up on.
These best-sellers cover everyone on your list: There’s some of the best gifts for men and women, creative gifts for teen girls and tweens, the hottest toys of 2021, gifts under $20, camping gifts, tech gifts and more. And because so many of these are actually personalized gifts that can be customized with their name, zodiac sign or favorite color, you don’t have to worry about anything feeling generic. (Personalization remains a huge trend across jewelry, home goods and more.)
Keep in mind that even this year’s most popular gifts will sell out quickly and may take longer to reach you because of supply chain issues and international shipping delays — shop early to make sure you get everything by Christmas.
