I Analyze Shopping Data For A Living & These Are The 50 Gifts People *Really* Want Right Now

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

Here on Bustle’s commerce team, we analyze shopping data for a living — we see what people are searching for online, what they’re adding to their wish lists, and what they’re buying. So when it comes to shopping for gifts, we know what people *really* want right now.

It may not come as a surprise, but often, people want things that make their life easier. Like (my personal favorite) the hair treatment that gives you silkier strands in just eight seconds. People also can't stop talking about the mug warmer that keeps their coffee nice and hot for hours, the motion-activated lights for under their bed, or the Alexa voice assistance that goes in your car. (Yes, I've put them all on the list — and yes, there are so many more things here that are just as good.)

The data shows that people seriously want all of these things, and some customers even keep coming back to buy more. You can buy all of the upcoming presents you need, including gifts for yourself.
