Finding the perfect present is never easy, no matter who you're shopping for — be it your loyal boyfriend, best friend or too-cool tween. Year after year, you're shopping for the same people, and it gets harder and harder to come by unique gift ideas. To help you stay on-trend this season, we've rounded up the most popular Christmas gifts of 2022.
When making this list, we chose only the best of the best items — everything either has five-stars on Amazon, comes from a five-star seller on Etsy, is a brand's best-selling item, was recently trending on TikTok or is simply one of our personal favorites.
You may prefer to give something sweet and sentimental such as a personalized necklace, a cool gadget or toy that'll keep them endlessly entertained or a piece of clothing you know they'll love. Some of these picks even work well as stocking stuffers or white elephant gifts; and, if you're running out of time, there's a ton of last-minute gifts that'll ship in two days or less.
