Here are some of the most “viral” gift ideas for the 2023 holiday season

The holiday season is upon us, which means it may be time to start planning your holiday wishlist. 2023 has provided so many memorable trends and viral products that it can be difficult to navigate through, so here is a guide to some of the best of the year.

2023 was all about the pink and sparkles with the Barbie movie and The Eras Tour trending, so check out fun picks from Mattel and Taylor Swift’s online store, including a hoodie that says “I am Kenough” and Taylor Swift album T-shirts.

Another great addition as we enter the winter months is a sweatshirt and sweatpants set from the brand White Fox, which has been a very popular purchase this year. You can pair this outfit with a new pair of Ugg Tasman Slippers, the perfect shoe choice for cold winter mornings, according to social media.

A great way to try out some of the most viral makeup products of the year is browsing Sephora and Ulta Beauty gift sets. TikTok-approved products such as the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand and the Watermelon Dew Drops from Glow Recipe can be found for discounted prices in holiday gift sets.

Haircare was also a relevant topic on “for you” pages, with the Dyson Airwrap continuing its reign as the most popular hair tool since it went viral in 2021. If you want the end result of a Dyson Airwrap at a slightly lower price, the Shark FlexStyle from Shark or the Elecsop Hair Dryer Brush from Walmart are great alternatives.

The Hunger Games is in a renaissance following the release of the “Ballads of Songbirds and Snakes,” a prequel film. A great addition to any wishlist is the Suzanne Collins book of the same name that the film is based on, along with the original trilogy, all available at most bookstores.

Author Taylor Jenkins Reid was everywhere on BookTok, with her book “Daisy Jones and the Six” even making it onto the small screen. Another one of Reid’s novels, “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo,” is currently being made into a feature-length film, making it another great read as we go into 2024.

Some other books receiving movie adaptations in 2024 include: “It Ends With Us,” written by Colleen Hoover, “Dune,” written by Frank Herbert, and “Wicked” by Gregory Maguire.

Even though we still have a few weeks until the semester is over, it is never too early to start preparing for the holiday season. This year was full of viral trends that will make excellent additions to your holiday wishlist and ensure that you enter 2024 in style.
