Hottest Gift Ideas for Christmas 2010

Updated on November 28, 2010

If you are aiming to impress and get your hands on some of the most original gifts out there, you must be updated on what items are ''hot'' in these cold, wintry days preceding Christmas. If you are not much fond of getting amidst the crowds and searching for hours for the perfect gift, preparation is your best friend. Last minute gifts indeed will be quite speedy if you head straight towards the right store and ask the clerks for that ''particular'' gift.  Make your last minute Christmas shopping fast and painless with some advanced planning.


Best Gifts for Women

Women are usually easy to please if you know what are the hottest gifts of the year. Ugg boots continue to be a popular trend. These famous boots are known for being stylish without being too fussy. They keep feet very warm while allowing your feet to breath. Another great gift to make women feel warm this winter is the Snuggie blanket with sleeves. It's a fleece blanket with sleeves that allows you to stay warm and comfy while being able to type, use the remote or read a book!

For women that cannot get enough of keeping their home immaculately clean, a pair of Slipper Genie Microfiber Cleaning Slippers may be the right gift. Equipped with these powerful slippers the woman of your life can go about cleaning as she walks! The slippers indeed catch hair, dust and dirt!

Women who love to cook have many options this coming year. The Microwavable S'Mores Maker allows to make delicious s'mores indoors using graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate! Pasta lovers who do not want to waste time boiling water and waiting, can use Fasta Pasta for fast perfectly 'al dente'' noodles. Magic Bullet on the other hand, will make the perfect companion to keep on your countertop for instant meals and snacks.

Best Gifts for Men

Men are practical and often the best gifts are those that will help make their life easier or more intriguing. With 3D movies being a big hit this year, a 3D television set may be the ultimately breath taking gift for the man of your life. The Neatdesk desktop scanner will help your man keep all his receipts in one place. This scanner indeed allows you to scan receipts, business cards and documents all in one batch.

ipods, iPads, and light weight laptops continue to be best sellers this year. GPS systems to make navigational skills easier when driving around are also a great choice. Among attire and accessories Casio and Invicta Watches are always readily appreciated. If you are shopping for men's perfume you can't go wrong with Nautica Blue by Nautica or Eternity by Calvin Klein.

Men who love to listen to music while they shower may love the Sangean H201 AM/FM Digital Shower Radio. This radio indeed is so water resistant it is almost submersible! This is thanks to the technology used which is equal to marine radios.

For small children, Cloud B's Twilight Constellation Night Light will magically transform nurseries and bedrooms into a starry sanctuary for the child's delight!

Older children over four years old will be still able to enjoy FurReal pets, featuring stuffed animals acting as the real thing!

Children looking for baby toys also have a variety of real looking babies. Baby Alive features a baby that really eats, drinks, and uses the potty! MGA has also worked on crafting some amazing babies known by Baby Born. Some babies know how to swim, others need to be fed and then placed on the potty.

Boys can enjoy having Toy Story 3 figures to keep them in the movie spirit. Buzz Lightyear now can say over 30 phrases, pop-out its wings, display laser lights and proudly stand 12" tall as in the movie. Woody and Bullseye can also be purchased and Bullseye now will raise his head and rear up on his hind legs upon his tail is tugged at.
