The holiday retail season is sneaking up on consumers who are eager to find the latest and greatest gifts for family and friends. According to the latest industry data, sales are expected to increase between 3.5% and 4.6% when compared to last year. That means most shoppers plan on spending just over $800 on holiday gifts this year. That rings in to more than $180 billion in total.
Popular gifting categories remain consistent with last year’s trends, with tech gadgets reining supreme, followed by footwear, bath and body goods, scents, and travel. However, a growing number of Americans plan on gifting quality time to loved ones, in the form of concerts, movies, and restaurant experiences.
Brahney has compiled a list of her favorite holiday hosting and gift ideas.
GIFTING POPULAR & TRENDING:
Brahney says, “Tractor Supply, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the nation, is committed to helping shoppers sleigh the holidays by providing a one-stop shop for everyone on your list.” She continues, by pointing out one of the best gifts out there, which is a TikTok sensation, “The Tractor Supply 12V Zero-Turn Lawn Mower Ride-On Toy is so popular and the kiddos are loving it!”
It’s a toy lawn mower with an enclosed translucent deck that provides a lifelike illusion of mowing. The dual motor handle drive system is easy for little hands to operate and even allows for 360-degree spins. The rubber traction strip tires keep the ride smooth and steady, while the included seatbelt and cup holder add safety and convenience. It comes with a 12V rechargeable battery and wall charger.
The lifestyle expert also points to another gift for people of all ages, saying “We can’t forget about the YETI Ramble 30 oz Tumbler. It’s perfect for the moms and dads who are outside playing with their kids.”
The tumbler is double-wall insulated with an 18/8 stainless steel body, which means a drink keeps its temperature no matter how much of a beating this cup takes. The YETI Ramblers are BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and have a No Sweat Design to make sure your hands stay dry.
Tractor Supply now has a robust line of Yeti products, like coolers, chairs, mugs and more

GIFTING AN EXPERIENCE:
One of this year’s biggest gifting trends is the gift of an “experience.” Brahney points out how this category has really grown in popularity over the past couple of years, adding, “Taking care of yourself and others is a priority and a Massage Envy gift card is the one gift that's guaranteed to fit “every body” you’re shopping for.”
It’s consumer-friendly and does not require a lot of time. She says “You don’t need to know their size, favorite color, or even whether they’d prefer a massage or facial. A gift card lets THEM choose how they’d like to spend their me time!”
Massage Envy franchised locations have a special offer for members and guests this holiday season. Shoppers get a free $20 promo card when they purchase $100 in gift cards between now and December 31, 2023!
