Christmas and holiday shopping for others can be a real challenge. Some people just don't tell you what they want while others have pretty much everything they could ever want and need. But alas, you need to find something for them this year.

According to a new study, you can skip the designer handbags, gift cards, and luxury vacations because the majority of people polled want something that will help them a lot more in the long run. 

The most wanted gift for 2019 is for someone or Santa to pay off their debt completely. That would be an amazing present for sure. What's the debt level the average person has? According to County financial it's about $58,673. The reason people are so focused on their debt is because the holidays are the time of year where people are the most stressed about their financial situation. It makes a lot of sense to me. 

Most Wanted gifts for 2019:

1. Their debt paid off (50%)

2. Their mortgage paid off (20%)

3. A luxury item or vacation (19%)

4. Credit cards paid off (13%)

5. Student loans paid off (7%)

Notice how the majority of the things on the list are debt related? If you aren't careful, shopping and preparing for the holidays can just add to your debt.
