If you're looking for the perfect gift for everyone on your list, look no further.

As anyone who's ever tried to feign enthusiasm for a gift they were less than thrilled to receive can attest, there's a major difference between getting a present and getting the right present. Luckily, Google has made it easier than ever to find the right gift for everyone on your list this year. The search giant has released its 2020 Shopping Gift Guide, which reveals the most searched items of the year in seven different categories. We've narrowed the list of the most popular gifts on Google down to the top three in each category, from presents for your favorite fitness enthusiast to thoughtful gifts for the little ones on your list—so read on to discover everything you need to make their holiday season a happy one.
