Every year, trends come and go along with the Holiday season. It can be difficult to keep up with all the changes around the Christmas season! To give you a heads-up on what to expect this year, we did some research into the latest holiday trends for 2016.
More shoppers than ever before will be doing their shopping on their mobile devices, and will always be on the look out for deals. Given the improvement in mobile websites over the last few years, many plan to do all their shopping from a mobile device!
Still, only 20% of shopping is done over e-commerce sites. Most consumers still prefer to get out there in a store and buy their physical goods in person!
This year, metallics are very hot! Specifically, warm metals like gold and brass are becoming more popular than traditional silver. Copper is another warm tone making a resurgence.
With the emergence of cheap and high-quality LED lights, new decorations utilizing them are becoming very popular. LED’s are more energy efficient and safer than traditional bulbs as they don’t put off as much heat. Many of the greatest Christmas laser lights use LED projectors as their source of light.
Other vintage decorative items are coming back into style as well, such as rustic wood decorations, and chalk boards. Striving for more simplistic designs is also a popular trend for Christmas 2016.
Old School Christmas

It seems that our saturation with electronic devises and a constant news cycle leaves many of us pining for a more simple time in the world when it was easier to turn off your mind for a minute and relax without being hounded by notifications from your cell phone!
