America’s Holiday Shopping List

Nadine Quitania

It is the most wonderful time of the year—or maybe not. To some, this season may just feel like one huge obligation, but if you are the type who enjoys listing what to get for all your loved ones and coworkers, then be happy knowing you are probably making someone’s “nice” list.

By now, most of you have finished your holiday shopping or maybe you are one of the last-minute shoppers who are struggling to come up with that one perfect present that ends up being a gift card. But hey, there is nothing wrong with gift cards. In fact, a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation in October found that 60 percent of shoppers preferred it as a gift.

This year, the projected spending will be up five percent from last year with the average person celebrating Christ- mas, Kwanzaa, or Hanukkah spending about $804. From clothing and accessories to toys and electronics, here is what is on America’s shopping list.
