Shopping trends for this holiday season

Techstination feature for Monday, November 22, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     The holiday shopping season started early this year…with early Black Friday sales online…and many of us wanting to buy early because of supply chain issues.   At Google…they’ve been tracking trends of what’s hot….and the company’s Colette Garcia says..

“I love to cook, so I’m going to start with the kitchen gear.   And we’re really seeing that people are searching for convenience and fast cooking.   So things like pressure cookers, air fryers,  coffee makers…and there’s even a countertop machine for baby formula that’s trending as well.   So that’s a good tip for parents out there.”

Gaming gear is hot too…including the Nintendo Switch OLED.  And Sports and Fitness is a trending category too.  For kids…one trending toy is a UPS delivery man action figure.
