This was part of a press release about the 23 hottest gifts for the holidays this year. Check out details on the items in the list by going to our public collection on iTaggit.
iTaggit, the leading online collection Web site that aims to change the way people collect, organize, and enjoy their personal items and collections, today announced a list of this holiday season’s twenty-three “must-have” gifts. Exactly one month until Black Friday, the biggest holiday shopping day of the year, consumers are already beginning to think about the holiday season. Americans plan to spend an average of $909 on Christmas gifts this season, according to a recent study issued by the Gallup Poll.
“We expect this holiday shopping season to be another busy one and we are preparing for it accordingly” said CEO David Altounian. “As a result of our continually evolving site consumers can use iTaggit to create their own holiday gift wishlists to share with family and friends, as well as catalog and organize what they’re giving others this season.”
The holiday shopping season can often prove stressful and chaotic, but iTaggit provides consumers a way to organize their holiday gift giving plans, as well as manage their own holiday wishlists. Recently released features, including an eBay upload tool and a public wishlist sharing function, make preparation for the 2007 holiday season simple and fast.
