What’s Trending in the Holiday Retail Landscape?

NEW YORK—There’s no doubt about it: holiday gift-buying season has fully descended upon us. For the well-organized among us, gift-buying may already be in the rear-view mirror, but many Americans are probably looking ahead at a long list of gifts, and a sea of wrapping paper, in the coming weeks. Finding the perfect present for everyone is nothing short of an art form; with countless things to choose from, figuring out what everyone on your list wants can be next to impossible. But every year there are a few gifts that seem to top everyone’s list, from the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of 80s to last year’s Hatchimals hysteria.

A Sense-ational Practice

When Leena Adhikari, OD, opened Crystal Vision Optometry in Rancho Cucamongo, California, about six years ago, one distinctive and eye-catching feature of the practice was the large crystal chandelier that hung in the small space. Earlier this year, Dr. Adhikari moved to a larger place, and while she brought the chandelier with her, it just didn’t fit into the design.
