Shopping online for your holiday gifts is easier than shopping in-store. For one, there are tons of gift guides out there to help you get some ideas, whether you’re shopping for your grandma, your dad, your girlfriend or even your dog-crazy best friend. Nonetheless, Google also recently released its Holiday 100, a report on the top 100 most-searched for products in 2022, if you want even more ideas.
According to Google, it saw a 500% increase in searches for pickleball this year and an 80% increase in searches for home pizza ovens. People love to play outdoor games and make pizza — where’s the lie? On the other hand, health tracker jewelry saw a 200% increase and searches for glitter hair spray grew 400% this year. All that said, take a look below at just 10 of the top gifts to give this year, according to Google. You can check out the rest of the report here.
1. Paddletek Phoenix G6 Pickleball Paddle, $69.99
Pickleball is the most popular sport in the U.S. right now! If you know someone who loves the game, upgrade their paddle with this top pick.
2. Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Pellet Pizza Oven, $349
Ooni makes some of the best at-home pizza ovens on the market. This one uses wood pellets to heat up to 950 degrees Fahrenheit, and it gives each pizza an authentic wood-fired flavor.
3. Oura Ring Gen3, $299
The Oura Ring is a sleek wellness tracker. It can track sleep, heart rate, activity levels and even how much time a person spends in a relaxed state each day. Plus, it has up to seven days of battery life. People love that you don’t have to set specific modes for it to work — it automatically detects when you’re moving or taking a nap.
4. Meta Quest 2 – 128GB, $399.99
The Meta Quest 2 is a completely wireless VR headset you can use to play games, work out, watch movies or connect with friends and family in the metaverse. Its ongoing updates give you something new to discover all the time. When you purchase the Meta Quest 2 before Dec. 31, you’ll receive the game Beat Saber for free, so you can start gaming right away, too.
5. Theragun Mini, $149 (Orig. $199)
Therabody has several varieties of its massage guns, but the Theragun Mini is the least expensive and the most portable. It’s about 5.5 inches wide and weighs 1.2 pounds. Don’t be mistaken, though — this device packs some serious power. Turn it on and off and change the speed with one button — from 1,750 to 2,400 percussions per minute. You don’t have to charge it much, either. It has 150 minutes of battery life and needs only about 80 minutes to charge.
6. Nintendo Switch Lite Turquoise, $199.99
If you’ve heard of Nintendo Switch, this is the lighter, handheld version you can take on the go. Get one for everyone in the family to play against each other on long road trips or at home.
7. Hatch Restore, $129.99
The Hatch Restore is part alarm clock, part sound machine, part night light. It offers curated sleep content like stories, mind exercises and relaxing sounds and can even help you build a wind-down routine. The best part, however, is that it has an alarm light that helps you gently wake up with a pseudo sunrise (but the light can also double as a nighttime reading light).
This plush pillow is weighted, so it’s extra snuggly and comforting. It comes in four varieties at Target, including a green dinosaur, pink dinosaur, unicorn or cheetah.
9. Eva NY Kweeen Silver Glitter Spray, $12.99
Eva NYC’s glitter spray adds a shimmery sparkle with each spray. It also makes your hair feel soft and never sticky. That’s because it’s infused with Keravis and argan oil, according to the product description.
10. gorjana Parker Necklace, $65
According to Google, searches for paperclip necklaces increased 90% this year. But, no, they’re not really paperclips — it’s just a type of chainlink inspired by them.
