Christmas is right around the corner and presents are being purchased left and right. There are so many great gifts to give this year, but Iowans and Illinoisans are going to be giving these gifts more than any other state, and they aren't that exciting.

A new study has come out from our friends at Zippia where they found each states most purchased Christmas gift will be this year. To do so, Zippia used used Google Trends to determined the potential Christmas gift each state searched for more than any other states. They searched hundreds of terms ranging from gift cards to restaurants and stores, popular tech, kitchen goods, stocking stuffers, and more.

They looked at searches ranging from November 11th, 2020 to December 7th, 2020, giving them a decent amount of the holiday shopping season to examine.

Here are some key facts they found in their results:

  • 18 states have a gift card as their most sought after gift.
  • 11 states are buying technology gifts.
  • The PS5 is one of the most popular gifts, but people in Delaware want it the most.
    • Wyoming is buying the PS4 instead.
  • Amazon gift cards, another popular 2020 gift, is the most wanted by people in Maine.
