NPD Predicts Top Home Gifts for Holidays

NPD GroupPORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.-The NPD Group has issued its prediction for what will be the top 10 home-product holidays gifts for this upcoming season.

Finishing first is coffeemakers, ranging from traditional drip machines to espresso makers and single-serve pod machines. Second is food-processing and blending solutions, with a focus on blender/mixer/chopper systems and countertop models. Third is juice extractors, related to the trend in juicing and its related health benefits.

These are followed by soda makers, slow cookers, popcorn makers, frozen treat makers, cast-iron cookware, wine glass sets and throws.

"Some items on this year's home holiday shopping lists deliver warmth, and others make it cold," said Debra Mednick, NPD executive director and home industry analyst. Some items are functional, and some are about the fun factor. Either way, the hottest home categories for the 2013 holiday season are designed to conveniently deliver comfort, improve health or bestow simple affordable pleasures."
