Did You Get Any of These Gifts Google Said Were the Most Popular?
Christmas has come and it has gone! It seems like the build-up to Christmas happens for so long and then the wonderful holiday was wrapped up in just one weekend. But we all have been searching and shopping for gifts for months now, google has shared the top most searched gifts for Christmas 2022. Will a gift you wanted be on the list? Find out.
Google shares what they call the Holiday 100, which “is a list of gift ideas based on search trends that defined our year. From hydroponic gardens to paperclip necklaces, we’ve brought together top trending searches from 2022.”
The following gifts are in no particular order and as google mentioned there are so many to choose from, here is a just a couple from a variety of categories. Google lets you look at the Holiday 100, or you can explore by category (which includes Home & Garden, Apparel & Accessories, Gaming & Electronics, Beauty, Toys & Crafts, Health & Fitness), or by trends (which includes Take it Easy, Novelty Rules, Style Standouts, Future Perfect, Viral Sensations, and State of Play).
Here are 15 items from the top 100. I just picked out the ones I saw many times throughout the year as well as the ones with trend details shared. When clicking on each item Google shares the search data of that item in 2022, shop with google, and shop by either near me, on sale, or any other keywords to help shop.
