Confession time: It’s been roughly four years since I set foot in a department store with the intention of actually buying something. I’m a chronic online-shopper, and that’s why Amazon’s Most Wished For items lists intrigue me like nothing else. I absolutely love seeing what’s popular from Amazon's wished-for items, what’s doing well this year, and which trends people are totally obsessing over.
Whether you’re a techie, a traveler, a beauty addict, a relaxation guru, or just looking for Amazon's top best-selling outdoor items for your next barbecue, you’ve got all the options in the world right at your fingertips. In fact, when I think about the world before you could type anything into a search bar, or read through hundreds of reviews, and opt for two-day shipping, I wonder how anyone ever survived the holiday season pre-internet. I think Amazon makes the ideal resource for chasing down popular online shopping trends because it’s super easy to use, and its countless categories help you find exactly what you’re looking for. (They also keep a close eye on what’s selling, and how people feel about their purchases, which doesn't hurt, either.)
Check out these most wished for items across all sorts of categories on Amazon — you just might find that, from now on, you’ve got all your gift lists and personal needs covered.

It can charge a smartphone from 0 to 100 percent before it needs to be charged itself, and it’s also compact, portable, and comes with a travel pouch for easy storage on the go.
Straighten And Smooth Hair With The Convenience Of A Brush
To straighten and smooth hair while you brush it, check out this ionic hair brush straightener.

Every great party I’ve been to in the past few years has been made better by Cards Against Humanity, and that’s why this game holds the number one best-selling spot in Amazon’s toy category.
