With the holidays fast approaching, the race is on to get all of the presents on your shopping list in time. Thankfully, Google just released its 100 top trending gifts for 2021 to provide some inspiration. Spanning seven categories, it features the most searched for products across health and beauty, gaming, kitchen gear, fragrances, sports and fitness, toys and games, and tech — and you’re going to want to snag everything ASAP.
Google’s list includes customer-favorite products from popular brands, like Nespresso and Dyson, as well as some under-the-radar finds, like a virtual reality set from Valve.
Unlike last year’s list, which focused more on health and wellness items, this year you’ll find plenty of tech and kitchen gear inclusions — in the latter category, coffee makers are front and center. A versatile machine that brews both coffee and espresso, the Nespresso Deluxe is one of the highest-rated options, and even better, it’s on sale right now. Other notable kitchen products include the Vitamix Immersion Blender — a handheld, stainless steel gadget that makes blending faster than ever — and the Ninja Air Fryer, a multi-functional cooking appliance with nearly 25,000 five-star ratings on Amazon.
For the gaming fanatic on your list, check out the VR sets from Oculus and Valve that’ll keep them entertained for hours. If someone in your life has been using the same old headphones for years, consider getting them an upgrade, like these sleek earbuds from Raycon. Or, give the gift of extra home security with the Ring Video Doorbell 3.
In beauty, coveted brands like Dyson and Peter Thomas Roth made the cut this year, including the Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler. The sought-after hair tool is designed to cut drying time in half and leave hair silky smooth thanks to its multiple brush attachments for different styling needs. Amazon shoppers call it “revolutionary” and a “total game changer.” On the skincare front, Peter Thomas Roth’s Hydra-Gel Eye Patches are a simple way to deliver a dose of hydration to the under-eye area. The hyaluronic acid-based eye gels can help smooth lines and depuff dark circles, and reviewers say they “show resuls quick” and are “worth the money.”
