Translation: A list of the most popular products with the highest-margin products speckled in to make it seem like they are good gift ideas as well.

Don't people realize this is combination of whatever is popular and paid-for placements? Or do people actually think getting someone a "Rand McNally OverDryve Connected Car System" is a good gift idea?

These are all fairly expensive presents. To top it off I would only really want (don't need at all) the done or the 4k TV. The list seems about them selling that what something that would actually make sense as a present.

There is nothing that screams Christmas (the gift of giving and sharing one's love and treasure with another) more than a Rand McNally OverDryve Connected Car System. I have no idea why you would question this. /s
