It's that time of year again where everyone makes a list—some check it twice—of the gifts they want for the holiday season. Amazon is no different with its wish list function. The website keeps track of the top items people are adding to their wish lists heading into holiday season, and they display them on their "Most Wished For" page.
Amazon breaks the items down into the most popular toys and games, movies and TV, electronics, books, video games and CDs and vinyl. Some of our favorite items made the list, including the Echo Dot and Echo. Some of mine did too, because I really need to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and ever since my roommate got an Echo Dot, I've been sitting in his room talking to Alexa like she's an old friend.
And I didn't say this, but I'm a huge P!nk fan, so if you're reading, mom.
Here are the top 18 things that are on people's Amazon wish lists for 2017.
Toys and games
1. Amado personal sewing machine
This battery-powered sewing machine is a portable quick-stitch tool for all kinds of materials including fabric, kids cloth and clothing. The small, lightweight machine is ready and easy to use with all the tools included and a 6-month guarantee on quality issues. It’s also currently on sale.
2. What Do You Meme?
This adult party game is based on creating Memes and can be played by anywhere from 3-20 players. Individuals or teams compete to create the funniest Memes while a judge selects the best combination.
3. Cards Against Humanity
Self-proclaimed as a “party game for horrible people,” Cards Against Humanity is one of the most popular games around.
