  1. Money

The most popular voted gift by the students of EHS was money. There is nothing better than getting money on any occasion, especially Christmas.. Money is the most popular because you can buy what you want and not what someone would think you want. EHS’s Senior Jamie Falotico states “When you get money for Christmas, it saves you the worry of wanting to return the gift if you don’t like it. So, when you get money, you can buy whatever you want.”

Overall, the students at EHS are looking forward to Christmas this year and the presents they will receive. And if you are having any trouble figuring out what you would want or what to buy your child, hopefully this list can help you out. We hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday.
