Shopping (along with too much family, too many Christmas carols, and too much holiday cheer) is one of the reasons why the season that is – don’t look now – almost upon us is stressful. We set out to make it easier by checking out all the newest stuff, from electronic gadgets to sporting gear, with a pit stop along the way for cool boxes of chocolates. We tell you what’s best, why – and who each of our favorites is best for. To help with the kids (and, okay, for comic relief), we asked 39 of them, from 3 to 12, what they really wanted (in case yours haven’t already placed an order). And in case the Next Big Thing isn’t your style, we matched classic gifts to every imaginable person. Your holiday shopping is just about in the bag – if not the wrapping paper.
