If you are still searching for the perfect Christmas gift, you may as well give up and just get the most popular one. The New York Times published the top-trending gift searches on Google from cities around the country.

There are a few things on there that lots of people seem to be hunting for:

  • Toys from the movie Frozen
  • Legos
  • Cards against Humanity

And then there are some outliers. For example, in Dallas people want Ouija boards; in Austin, kinetic sand. And in San Francisco, people are looking for wireless chargers and smart watches. Of course they are.
