It's the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be a really stressful time, especially if you can't find what you're looking for. The countdown to Christmas has started and many people are still scrambling to find the perfect gifts for everyone on their list.

The team at used internet search data to determine the most sought-after gifts in each state and unfortunately supply chain ises might make it hard to find Minnesota's most requested gift.

Minnesota's Most Sought-After Gift


The Playstation 5 is the most sought-after gift in Minnesota but finding one this year will be extremely challenging. I checked Walmart, Target, Amazon, Game Stop, and Best Buy's websites this morning and none of them had the video game console in stock.

Earlier this year, Sony was forced to slow production because of the worldwide chip shortage and now demand is growing as we get closer to Christmas.

Can you still get the gift that your child is begging for? Maybe. Experts say it'll take some luck and a lot of determination.

How To Get A Playstation 5 Before Christmas

Online shopping using credit card and laptop.

The team at put together a PS5 restock tracker along with some tips to help you find the PS5 before Christmas.

Their tips include:

  • Keep checking!
  • Refreshing a few times when you see an "out of stock" message. explains, "Some retailers release the consoles in waves to keep bots from getting all of them."
  • They also recommend having an account set up with your payment information saved so you don't waste valuable time during the check-out process. (It isn't yours until the payment is submitted - even if it's in your cart)

If you don't mind paying above the retail price, eBay is another option.
