According to the consumer Electronics Association, a recent survey has shown that consumer electronics are still the most popular gifts for the 2008 holiday season. CEA projects a growth of the category of 3.5% for Q4 2008 compared to shipments in 2007.

That is saying a lot considering how bad the economy is doing right now. Consumer electronics count for four of the top ten items on adults' holiday wish lists, computers are in second place behind peace and happiness, TVs, game systems, and cell phones made the top ten says the CEA.

“There remains a robust desire for consumer electronics and this category continues to be the bright light during these dark economic times,” said Tim Herbert, CEA’s senior director of market research. “CE devices have become integrated into the everyday lives of consumers. No matter what your current economic situation, you can find a CE product to fit any holiday budget.”
