Each month at Good Housekeeping, we round up the best gifts on the market, report on top trends of the season, and put both new and trusted products to the test in the esteemed Good Housekeeping Institute — and each month, our readers decide which items they want to spend their hard-earned cash on.
With the holiday season officially kicking off last month, our readers showed a growing interest in buying home staples and unique gifts for loved ones. The great savings from Black Friday and Cyber Monday had readers investing in major discounts on best-of-the-test items like luxurious bedding and beauty favorites. Readers also beat this year’s anticipated holiday shipping delays, instead opting for smart gift experiences like virtual MasterClasses from celebrities and experts.
See below for the most popular products this season, according to you, our readers, to inspire your shopping list.
