Text Analytics Poll Reveals Hottest Holiday Gift Ideas

Tomorrow marks the beginning of Hanukkah, and Christmas is just around the corner. So, I thought what better time to use OdinText to investigate ideas for gift giving.

Top 10 Hottest Gifts Ideas for 2017

If you’re out of ideas on what to get your loved ones you may want to consider these popular ideas

  1. Mobile Phones iphonex

Well iPhone X to be exact. While smart phones in general are by far the most popular gift this year, iPhones specifically were mentioned twice as often as any cell phones in general, and no other specific brand even came close in mentions.

  1. Gift Cards Gift Cards

They’re a more popular choice than one would think. Sure, it’s fun to receive the perfect gift – Like an iPhone X – but in lieu of that gift cards are a cheaper more popular option among both gifters and receivers.

  1. Fingerlings Fingerlings

For younger friends and family, there are several choices that popped, especially these AI enabled tiny creatures. They’re cute and they react to voice and touch. These little guys were mentioned about as often as Gift Cards!

  1. Amazon Echo or Google Home 

Amazon Echo being far more often mentioned than Google Home, both are hot this years. [ While various Apple accessories were popular in our data (including Apple Watch), Apple HomePod was not.]

  1. Fidget Spinners 

Yes, these darned things are still around, and by the sound of it are likely to make it into a lot of stockings

  1. Drones 

A bit on the more expensive side, drones are still a very hot gift and there are many options and prices.

  1. Lol Dolls 

For younger girls these small collectible dolls like a lot of products these days are very much about the packaging. They and their accessories come in small palls that are cracked open. Part of the fun and ‘cuteness’ (a trend called kawaii that’s been on it’s way here from Japan for some time and is now arriving)

  1. Hatchimals 

Similar to LoL Dolls, but a step beyond with an interesting twist. These creatures come in eggs, and hatch in weird ways. The more expensive ones have AI that interacts with the child. The creature responds to stroking/heating of the egg, and then hatches.

  1. Tickle Me Elmo 

This little guy never went away. Still a safe bet for the little Guy or Gal in your life.

  1. PopSockets 

At 10th place is also the cheapest option of the bunch. If you opt for # 1 above, you may as well go all out and get one of these little smart phone accessories too. They won’t break the bank!

Hopefully these gave you some ideas. If you have any for us we’d love to hear them below.

  1. PS. I’m going to add one that didn’t make the list above because it wasn’t popular enough, but the awesomness factor is incredibly high in my opinion, especially for that person who has everything, check out https://www.masterclass.com/
