With over one million searches per day, TheFind saw Rainbow Loom DIY bracelet makers and Furby Booms as top searched toys while Pandora Charms and Michael Kors watches were the must-have items in women's accessories. The newly released Keurig Vue Single Serve Coffeemaker and the classic KitchenAid Artisan mixer led shoppers' lists in home appliances.  

TheFind saw top electronic gifts ranged from pricey picks like Apple's iPad Mini to more fiscal options like the Kindle Fire HD and Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.
