Merchandise Monday: Holiday Season is Just around the Corner!

Part III: Lifestyle, Housewares and Fashion

Although we could go on and on, all good things must come to an end. The third and final installment of our Holiday Trends Preview focuses on home and housewares, lifestyle and fashion trends. From jewelry and handbags to home entertaining and DIY, you’ll get great ideas for the fashionista, entertainer or outdoorsy in your life!

Ladies first! Jewelry, handbags and other accessories are always hot for the holidays. Hinda has a wide selection of Pandora® charms and bracelets to suit every taste and interest, including some season- and holiday specific charms. These make great stocking stuffers and are a beautiful addition to any woman’s wardrobe. And you can’t mention jewelry without talking about handbags! We’ve got a great variety of bags from clutches to crossbody and everything in between. Hot lines this holiday season include BCBGMAXAZRIA, Kate Spade, Vince Camuto and LAUREN by Ralph Lauren.


But looking great isn’t just for the ladies. We’ve got fashionable items for men, too, including watches, luggage and apparel! Fossil®, TAG Heuer and Bulova® are all big names in the watch world that make great gifts at the holidays and any time of year. On the travel front, hardside luggage and lighter pieces are making a splash. Check out pieces from carry-on to large wheeled luggage from popular brands like Samsonite® and Delsey® available at Hinda! The North Face® Thermoball™ Full Zip Jacket is also new on the scene this holiday season. Available for men and women, Thermoball is constructed with low-weight, high-loft clusters that retain heat even when wet. Stay warm and dry all winter long!

Moving on to housewares, home entertaining is still big in 2013. People are going for aesthetically pleasing table-top appliances featuring stainless steel, bamboo wood or crystal, wine and beer accoutrements to accessorize their home bars – like electric wine openers, beverage coolers and interesting drinkware – and retro kitchenware that makes a statement as well as serves a purpose. Celebrity-licensed cookware is hot due to the popularity of cooking shows – check out our lines from Rachael Ray, Emeril and Top Chef. Finally, single-serve coffeemakers, espresso makers and coffee accessories are still top sellers. Consumers seem to be getting used to not having to wait in line or pay upwards of $4 for their morning fix!

Last but not least, several great outdoor items have come through the merchandise pipeline just in time for the holidays. Are you a golf-lover or do you have a golf-lover in your life?  Check out the latest and greatest additions to Hinda’s already wide selection of golf gear, including the Sony® Action Cam Golf Training Pack, the Garmin® Approach S1 Golf Watch and the TaylorMade® Spider Mallet Putter – among many others. Too cold for golf? Not to worry – Hinda is here with plenty of new cold-weather toys as well! The Reebok® SicKick Junior Hockey Stick, Active Sports Burton Blunt Wide Snowboard and the Flexible Flyer® Aurora 36” Foam Sled will cure all of your wintertime blues! Get out there and enjoy the snow and ice!

And there you have it – Hinda’s 2013 Holiday Trend Preview! Of course, this is just a small sample of the many, many items we have available, and as you know if you keep up with the blog, we’re always adding new stuff monthly! But we hope this guide will help you to pick out the hottest and most in-demand gifts for your loved ones this holiday season. After all, if we don’t help you become the coolest, most fun and most stylish gift-giver out there, then we’re doing something wrong!

Happy shopping, and happy holiday season from Hinda Incentives!
