With this year’s official Holiday Season being six days shorter than the 2018 season, you may still be scrambling to get with the program. So, take a minute to get caught up on the hottest trends emerging in several holiday-centric categories.
While the traditional hues of green, red, and gold will show their brilliance this holiday season as always, blue has joined the party. “Think deep midnight blues, aquamarine hues and cerulean as both main and accent colors. The result brings a touch of whimsy and glamour to the festive scenes you and your customers can create,” states Springfair.
Another trend features a very natural style that boasts decorative elements that can during a forest walk. “We call it ‘Cool Natural’ – because despite the autumnal cones, mosses, mushrooms, and twigs, it always contains a touch of cool snow optics or silver mica that will give the elements the winter flair,” notes Christine Hiller, Trend-Analyst for HQ. This style’s popularity is expected to increase as many folks desire to move toward fewer disposable holiday decorations.
What would a look at Holiday trends be without a gander at the season’s hottest toys?

DNA kits, dubbed as the hottest gift in 2018, show no signs of dwindling in popularity.
From Ancestry.com’s site: “Every family has people who seem impossible to shop for. An AncestryDNA kit is one gadget even your uncle doesn’t have. With just a few drops of saliva, the testing technology will survey his genome and compare his DNA to 1,000 world regions, leading him to unexpected corners of the globe. The kit gives families something to talk about besides the football game, opening up new conversations and deepening relationships.”
