Short on gifting inspiration? While it might be taboo to peek under the Christmas tree, we won’t judge you for stealing a look at everyone else’s shopping list. After analyzing millions of “wish list” boards, Pinterest recently revealed its most popular gift ideas for 2018—and it’s chock-full of last-minute ideas.
Based on this season’s most saved and shared pins, it looks like Pinners are going beyond the realm of snoozy coffee table books and instead opting for more creative presents—like sustainable stocking stuffers and experience-focused DIYs. Read on for the top three gifting ideas leading the way this holiday season.
The joy of receiving a new Keurig only lasts so long. An extravagant at-home spa night? Timeless. In hope of savoring the moment, Pinners are more interested in planning clever staycation experiences than extravagant trips. Lesson learned? Don’t blow your budget on skydiving—make the most of what you have at home instead.
Work Spouse Gifts
Pinterest certainly hasn’t forgotten about the unsung heroes of the world. From your favorite work colleague to your mail carrier, 2018 is the year of the less-obvious companion. Small, functional presents with a custom touch are the way to go if you want to win the heart of a beloved acquaintance.
According to Pinterest, personal tech products—like this minimalist charging bracelet and this pocket-size photo printer—are currently experiencing a spike, as coworkers think ahead to Valentine’s Day.
Bulky bubble necklaces begone. From faux leather accessories to streamlined rings, Pinners are embracing the same “less is more” approach we’ve seen hitting the interior design industry as of late. Earthy forms and organic materials rank high when it comes to “gifts for her” this season. Think all things dainty, delicate, and eco-conscious.
