Some of the most popular Christmas gifts around include compact and ultra slim DVD players, Xbox and Playstation console packages, MP3 players and many more up-to-date electronic items. These types of gifts are particularly popular with teenagers and with gadget-loving men, too.
Of course, there are the more traditional items you can guarantee to see wrapped up under the tree. For ladies, gifts such as lingerie, perfumes, cosmetics, the latest designer outfits and lots of chocolates are very popular. Ceramic straightening irons are another much sought after gift for women, especially at Christmas when hair is exposed to a lot of winter damage.
Men can expect to receive gadgets, electronic goods, sports memorabilia as well as the latest fashion items. As men are becoming more and more aware of their appearance, so are expensive grooming products becoming increasingly common gifts for men.
Chocolates and any other form of sweets and candy are also extremely popular during the festive period. Chocolate gifts are not only an inexpensive option, but at Christmas time they are usually presented in wonderful packaging making them look even more scrumptious. You can’t really go wrong with a good old box of chocs!
- 2004 will be a blockbuster year for children's Christmas toys.

- No single 'must-have' toy will dominate Christmas toy sales this year (like the Cabbage Patch Doll, Elmo or Furby have in past years).

- Nonetheless, expect significant shortages of many popular toys this Christmas season, because toy retailers are being more conservative this year due to the economy. In fact, almost everyone is predicting Christmas toy shortages.

Get ready for the return of the original virtual pet. Hatch your egg to find out if it is a girl or a boy then give it a name and care for your Tamagotchi by feeding it.

How you care for your Tamagotchi will determine which characters you will get. Use the new Infra-Red (IR) function to connect to other Tamagotchi, play games, exchange gifts and even have Tamababies if you nurture your friendships with other Tamagotchi owners!
