Even though math was my least favorite subject growing up, I’ve oddly always had a thing for studying analytics and numbers. This is probably why I got such a kick out of checking my affiliate sites in November and December to see which items were popular with click-throughs as well as purchases. Of course I can’t see who orders what, but I can see those numbers, and those darn numbers fascinate me in the dorkiest way! The gift ideas that I thought would do well usually tanked, but then the items that were last-minute additions or silly ideas were typically super popular. Go figure! I can’t predict you people and what you want. 😉
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to kick off the week with a light-hearted analytical post to show you which items were clicked on the most as well as which items were purchased the most (at least through my links).
If you’re a numbers person like me, I hope you enjoy this breakdown.
As a reminder, here was the list of daily guides.
Top 10 Most Frequently Purchased Gift Ideas
- Kootek 42 Pieces Cake Decorating Set <—-I don’t personally have this set, but I LOVE (love love!) my cake decorating tips.
2. Brush Hero <—-I purchased this for Jamie and my FIL. Not sure what my FIL thinks, but Jamie really likes it!
5. Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler <—- If you’ve been around a while, you know we use this for indoor grilling and pancakes every single week. We’ve had it for 4.5 years and just replaced our first one.
6. Table Topics
9. Heated Blanket <—- I got this from my mom for Christmas and OMG WE ARE ALL OBSESSED. Even Teddy. We have to make sure it’s off before we leave the house, otherwise he would totally bake himself.

Hi! I’m a proud Army wife and mom to two little girls (ages 1 and 4), and I love sharing our lives with you. I blog all about motherhood, our time in the military, our travels, our meals, my fitness journey, my fashion favorites, and so much more. I truly enjoy sharing it all! I can’t get enough of birthday cake ice cream, weekend sunrise runs, or making my girls belly-laugh. I write almost daily about my family’s lives, and though I like to keep things light, I also share the messy parts too. Welcome! So glad to have you around. I’m active on Facebook and Instagram and would love to communicate with you there!
