If the question is whether it’s too early to talk about Christmas, the answer is no, it’s not. Especially when it comes to Christmas gifts.
If you’re about to kick off your Christmas shopping season, you might want to know what the hottest gifts have been here in New Jersey over the past few years, and some of our picks in the past have been quite interesting. .
Let’s start by going back to a report from 2020. According to a report at Homemade snacks, New Jersey’s best Christmas gift then was the iPhone 12. It wasn’t a bad choice at all at the time. This report came out just before Christmas in 2020.
So what has Santa brought us as we go back in time? This is really going to put us in a bit of a time machine today. Pink News has compiled a great list of the best Christmas gifts over the years, and it’s fun and eye-opening.
Here are some highlights from the list. Some of them will remind you of the big push to make sure those items were under your tree on Christmas morning.
Let’s start in the 2000s.
2005. Xbox 360. If you could get your hands on one, you were in luck, but the race to get one pales in comparison to the frenzy a furry friend caused the following year.
2006. Nintendo Wii. You wanted to play, but you needed exercise, and this was the answer if you could find one. Many parents still have flashbacks.
Let’s dig a little deeper, into the 1990s.
1996 Tickle Me, Elmo. Seriously, what were we thinking? All that fuss over a laughing plush anima? But, we had to have it.
1998Furby. What about the 90s? First Tickle Me, Elmo, then Furby? It’s like a fur invasion.
And finally, we can’t do this without spending a minute going back to the 80s.
1980 Rubik’s Cube. Yes, that was so long ago, and yes, it still gives us all headaches. Pretty amazing.
1983 Cabbage Dolls. They were cute and far from cute at the same time. And we loved them.
I hope you enjoyed this Christmas trip down memory lane.
