Top 10 most popular Christmas gifts in 2020

It’s that time of year again: Christmas is upon us, and we’re all seeking out gifts for those that we care about. In the UK, we don’t seem to do things by halves: we spend a staggering £20 billion each Christmas all in an attempt to curry favour with our significant other and to perhaps buy a few minutes of peace from our over-excited children.

Knowing what the top trends are can certainly go some way to getting us into someone’s good books. Where teenagers are concerned, when we know what’s hot and what’s not, our gift buying expertise can even see us garnered with the title of ‘cool parents’ (at least temporarily anyway!).So, you may be wondering how to achieve such a title, or you may need help showing that certain someone that you care. That being the case, you’ll need to know what’s popular this Christmas. In a recent blog by Betway Casino, we’re told that it’s all about tech.

The year of the console (again)

It wouldn’t be the first year when we’ve gone mad for the latest games console release: Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft seem to have created their own Christmas tradition by making sure we’re flocking for their offerings each year.Unsurprisingly, this year is no different. Despite the financial worries shared by many, we’re still eager to please on the technology front. This means that the most popular Christmas gifts of 2020 come in the form of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. Manage to get your hands on either of these this year and you’re sure to have secured your place in just about any recipient’s heart!Of course, Christmas is all about love, peace, and goodwill to all men, but I assure you that a PlayStation 5 is up there too.

Is it all about tech?

” But that’s just two gifts,” I hear you cry. Don’t worry, here come the other 8, but brace yourself as you’ll soon see that the list is dominated by technology:

  • Nintendo Switch
  • Amazon Echo Dot (4th generation)
  • Google Nest Hub Max
  • Apple Airpods with wireless charging case
  • Amazon Kindle
  • Gift cards
  • Electric scooters
  • TV subscriptions

These are just one of many options to consider, you can also look at Personalized Book as a non-techie option as well.  Now, the likes of the Nintendo Switch are hardly surprising features, but TV subscriptions and gift cards may leave you thinking you’ve misread something! You’d be wrong, though.None of us can escape what has happened this year, and COVID-19 has even managed to disrupt our Christmas spending habits. With many people being unable to even get out to a shop, without facing the wrath of Boris and co, there’s been a scramble to buy gift cards online to send to our loved ones. Add to that the fact that we have had 10 months of acquainting ourselves with TV all over again, and it suddenly becomes understandable that we’re buying subscriptions as gifts. Have no fear though: 2021 will see a return to the norm and banish such gifts from the list, never to return.
