2021 holiday wish list

2021 holiday toysYou may have read our Holiday Preview blog where we shared ideas for gifting all of the good children in your life.  Well, the waiting is over (at least for you, for now) because our complimentary Holiday Wish List for kids, tweens, and teens is available for download here!

Find out whether youth want lots of small gifts or just one big gift, also what are this year’s hottest gift cards, and more. And, given the way family time has changed throughout the pandemic, this year we added a question, “If someone were to gift you ‘an experience’ where you spend time together, what would you want it to be?” 

Eight out of ten youth got excited about the idea—and their dreams run the gamut from video game “play dates” to trampoline parks, dining at a special restaurant, and even the biggest wishes of a trip to Disney World or Hawaii.  

Some of the sweetest asks? These simple, inexpensive desires won’t break the gift-giver’s piggy bank but  will create warm memories that will last a lifetime:

  • Visit Penguins at the Zoo
  • Train Ride
  • Go to a Forest
  • Hang Out at the Mall, Then Out to Eat

If after checking out our infographic, you’re still stumped for gift ideas, here’s a reminder about the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt phenomenon this year.

Happy Holidays to you from all of us at YouthBeat!
