In case you’re still doing some holiday shopping, and have no idea what to get someone, the most popular Christmas gift in the state might be a good start.
It turns out, shoes are the most sought-after present in South Carolina, according to Treetopia, an articifial tree retailer.
Treetopia did an analysis of gift trends in each state, and made a list of the most common presents using Google Trends to determine which gifts were most searched for in all of the states last year.
The most common gift in 2016 was an iPhone, which was 11 states’ top gift, the findings reveal. Some may find this surprising, but other states chose items that aren’t high-tech. Books were the most popular gift in Maine and Vermont, and coffee is highly favored in Minnesota.
Never miss a local story.
South Carolina and Alabama were the only two states with shoes as the most-searched present.
