Top 10 Totally Surefire Holiday Gifts

It’s crunch time. The deadline to get your gifts together is fast approaching and you still don’t know what everyone wants. So we turned to our social commerce network that provides ratings, reviews and Q&As to over 5500 brands. Our team at PowerReviews took a look at a database of 35 million products to see what people were talking about.

We looked at which products were most heavily reviewed and shared on Facebook. We also combed through all the questions and answers curious shoppers posted. The ten products below emerged as some of the most buzzed-about among people who were actually buying. (Special thanks to Pete Kettell for his help in sifting through an innumerous amount of data that produced what you see below)

1. Hoodie Robe

This snuggie on steroids will give your wife, mom or grandma that wizard-like look she desires some extra warmth and comfort through the winter.

2. Whiskey Stones

Whiskey is the it-drink of the moment for classy gents. This tumbler set is just what the aspiring Old Spice Guy in your life needs to enjoy a nice, chilled drink without any odious dilution.

3. Scratch Map

Everyone’s got a globetrotter friend. Someone who’s been everywhere. The world is their oyster. And now, with this neat scratch-off-where-you’ve-been-map, it can also be their scratch-off ticket. Jackpot!

4. Bows and Arrows

What’s cooler than shooting bows and arrows? Nothing. Surprise the badass among your friends with some gear from Three Rivers Archery. And throw in some extra arrows while you’re at it.

5. An un-iPad

Not everyone who wants a tablet computer is a Pendleton jacket-wearing hipster with an Apple addiction. Get the buttoned-down person in your life a Blackberry Playbook, the teenager on your list a Coby Android tablet and it’ll all be good.

6. Kim Kardashian’s shoes

Customers say Skechers’ Shape-Ups from their Kim Kardashian collection are “like walking on a cloud” and are great even if you’re “an old broad with a bad knee” . ‘Nuff said.

7. A Crafty Necklace

Did you know that there’s a flower that represents each month of the year? Neither did we. But the craftista in your life is sure to appreciate these handmade birth month flower necklaces.

8. A Jump-Start on New Year’s Resolutions

Let’s face it, ’tis the season to eat 10 times your body weight in cookies. Give the inveterate self-improver in your life what he needs to start working the holiday pudge off.

9. Sensible Loafers

Indulge your dad’s inner Alex Keaton with some tassel loafers from Johnston & Murphy. Customers say they “exude class” whether they’re worn with “a dinner jacket or with a Hawaiian shirt and shorts.”

10. Some Peace and Quiet

What new parents want most — other than all the best for their little one — is some sleep. Get it for them by giving them a Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play sleeper. “This is the best product invented!,” raves one first-time parent. “I love this!,” says another. “Thank God for this!,” says a third. Sounds like a winner to us.
