One thing is clear if you look to Pinterest the most popular gifts of the year. People are pretty keen on being warm and welcoming with each other. Three of the top five kinds of gifts all relate to how we treat those who are near to us. As you shop for the perfect Christmas gifts this year consider items that fall under these popular categories found on Pinterest. For each of these categories of popular Christmas gifts, I’ll include some links and examples from Pinterest. For additional inspiration, have a look at my 2018 Holiday gift guide.

This is a great time to start getting special things for your loved ones. We don’t need to wait until Christmas. In fact, some things are best enjoyed in the days leading up to Christmas. I just found out that New Yorker Bagels now ships their famous bagels anywhere in the US and you can purchase them online. I’m blown away by this for reasons I’ll mention below, but I’m really happy to share these with my grandkids. You’ll need a new toaster this holiday season. Trust me,
A Real New York Bagel
If you’ve had a bagel in New York, it was probably a New Yorker Bagel. New Yorker Bagels account for more than half of the bagels in New York. For nearly 40 years they have been the high water mark for bagels in New York. That pretty much makes them the best bagels worldwide. Leading brands have relied on the quality and goodness of New Yorker Bagels for decades, including cafes, restaurants and hotels.
Obsessed with Freshness
Here’s why I like New Yorker Bagels for my grandkids. They are so good, when you try them, you just know that there is no substitute. Bagels make a terrific convenience breakfast for the kids and New Yorker Bagels really make them happy. Even though they are based in New York, freshness is super important to them so they ship overnight in the US free of charge. That’s amazing. This is a totally new thing and I can’t believe that now I can get the same high-quality hand-rolled bagels shipped to my doorstep.
I normally worry when ordering from a popular brand that the quality will suffer, because I’m not physically there. The fact that New Yorker Bagels obsesses so much over the quality of their product makes me happy to support what they do. This also presents a wonderful gift giving opportunity in the form of a Bagel of the Month subscription.
Quite a Variety
As if the New Yorker Bagels brand wasn’t enough to make this new online buying option so exciting, they offer so many different options, including their Flat Bagels, which are kind of a big deal. Among New Yorker Bagels’ 22 varieties of bagels are more traditional selections, but also outrageous choices as well. French Toast, Jalapeño and Kalamata Olive are just a few. Plus they offer healthful bagels like Quinoa Multigrain, Cranberry Energy and Whole Wheat. These delicious bagels also happen to be vegan and certified kosher. If you are having a special occasion this holiday season, why not order up a big box of New Yorker Bagels?

I love giving the gift of books, most especially at Christmas! Books are a gift that they will return to on repeat, often reading more than once. They are gifts that remain useful for years to come.
Books make great gifts for everyone on your list. Think teachers, families, expectant parents, you name it. Books are common among the Four Gifts (something to wear, something you need, something to read, something you want). Then there are the 25 Days of Christmas Books as well. This is a growing advent calendar like trend. Wrap 25 Christmas books and let the kids unwrap one each night between December 1 and Christmas day. What a wonderful way to welcome the Christmas season.
