Popular Christmas Gifts Each Decade



Kiki here, Miracles and Blessings ... I hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas. I know I am, especially knowing that I already have the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ.  His birth brings salvation, eternal life and light in a dying world.   What an awesome God we have!

Christmas is a great time to express your love for family members and friends, because God showed His love for us by giving us baby Jesus, the Messiah.  

Christmas gift-buying has always been a frenzied time.  This year was no different.  Each year and decade there's a popular Christmas gift that the masses must have.  So, as my Christmas ribs cook on a low broil, here are some popular Christmas gifts starting with 20010.

1. 2010 APPLE IPAD

You can shop for a Kate Spade, defeat a villain and peruse magazines without getting off the couch.  I'm sure there were a lot of teeth showing when they ripped open the wrapping paper and saw the white Apple box.

2.  2000 - RAZOR
Ten years earlier, children and adults alike wanted to scoot around town on a razor.


But now in 20010 you can get an updated version, an electric razor.
Not a popular Christmas gift these days but worth the mention.

Raphael, Donatella and Michelangelo, ninja fighting mutant turtles made pizza super popular and topped video game and action figure sales in the start of this decade.

4. 1980 RUBIK'S CUBE
Everyone had a rubik's cube for a birthday gift or under the Christmas tree.  You saw people on the subway, standing in the post office line and at work and school desks trying to get a perfect cube.

6. 1960 - BARBIE
Inspired by a doll she saw in Germany, Helen Handler, the wife of Mattel's co-founder, created the doll named Barbara Millicent Roberts.  We know her as Barbie.

Now let's fast-forward to 2010 Holiday Barbie...
