What would a blog be without a top ten list. As we move closer to the Holiday season, I figured it was time to open the database archives and review what sold well last November.
1. Theracane Back Massage Tool: This is always near the top for us, but it becomes a hit during Christmas because it is an affordable, yet unusual massage gift for almost any adult.
2. Obus 92 Obus Forme Heated Seat Cushion with Heat and Massage: Another massage device with a key attribute for Winter: Heat and massage while driving. Probably people just want to have a warm car seat.
3. Stamina Pilates Exercise Magic Circle Equipment and Video: Probably a good gift for the wife, or friend interested in the Pilates method to strengthen their core muscles.
4. Obus Forme Natural Sound Therapy Machine Relaxation System: Another inexpensive gift that will make the gadget lover happy.
5. Hitachi Magic Wand Vibrating Massager: A great massager for the money and it has been covered by Oprah. Oprah Speaks highly of the massager and then Magic Wand sells like hotcakes, just like her book recommendations.
6. Warmrails Regent Hard Wired Wall Mounted Electric Towel Warmer: A good entry level towel warmer and the style is very classic. The towel warmer will work in almost any bathroom.
7. ConAir Hot Lather Machine Shaving Foam Dispenser: The fall back gift for men. Since most men shave daily, it adds a little luxury into their shaving routine. The Conair lather machine now works for both lather and gel.
8. Thunderhead High Pressure Rain Shower Head: Another gift idea that brings luxury to the bathroom. Why take a normal shower when you can feel like standing in the rain.
9. Lafuma Recliner Chairs: Everyone that I have sit in the Lafuma chair find it cool to lean back into a relaxed position and very comfortable. As an ecommerce leader for the Lafuma recliners, Comfortchannel.com sold the most chairs online in 2006 according to the US Authorized Supplier. The Lafuma chairs are imported from France.
10. Warmrails Wonderbar Chrome Free Hanging Electric Heated Towel Warmer: Another Towel Warmer from Warmrails, an inexpensive gift to give to someone.
So there you have it. It will be interesting to see how 2007 compares to 2006 when it comes to the top ten selling items based on orders. All of the items on the list retail for between 30-150 dollars, which seems about the range of Christmas gift budgets.
