What’s Hot for the Holidays: Here are the Top Five Holiday Gifts for 2012
One common question asked of Portland’s unique specialty retailer of all female sporting gear, apparel and accessories is: What are the top five gifts for the 2012 holiday season? Aries announced them today.
The holiday season is a busy one for all retailers and at Aries it is no different. The shop is a popular destination for male and female shoppers buying specialty gear for their favorite female athlete, as well as apparel and accessory items. Topping the list of hot items for 2012 (no surprise) are I-phone cases that show off the athlete’s sport of choice. Also on the list this year are “slap watches”, half zip tops, ornaments, and flap-ear caps.
“The holidays are a busy time for us and we love to track the most popular products the athletes want. We work hard to stay ahead of the hottest items and source smaller vendors with unique products to offer. Many of the items on this year’s must-have list are accessories that highlight the individual sports that our customers participate in, such as the popular cell phone cases, ornaments and chalk talk hats,” said Diana Marsden, Owner of Aries Apparel.
Here is the 2012 Top Five List:
1. Cell phone cases
2. SLAP Watches
3. Half Zips
5. Flap-ear Caps
