ABC News' Becky Worley reports:
I've analyzed search data, Twitter trends and what's gotten your attention in the mall. Here's my hot list on how to find what's scarce, and how to find a deal on those must-have gifts:
2) Gaming Consoles
Gaming consoles are tough this year because both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are in high demand and short supply.
3) Ugg Boots
If you have a teenage girl on your list, I'm guessing she asked for classic Ugg boots. They were the most-searched fashion item during Black Friday.
And bad news - no deals. I researched for hours and found zip, zero, zilch.
I tried codes on big department store chains and the blanket discounts always had exclusions on Uggs. I tried discount shoe retailers like 6pm.com, but they had discounts on a size 11 in green, or a size 5 in gold.
But things got really weird when I searched "cheap Uggs." I ended up on sites that were clearly masquerading as Ugg retailers, but were selling counterfeits. I recently did a story on counterfeit handbags and found the one thing all the knockoff sites had in common was slow shipping. So even if you're so desperate you'd consider a knockoff, I strongly advise against it and can almost guarantee they won't make it in time for Christmas.
Bottom line - if the deal is too good to be true, don't trust it.
4) Pu ffer Jackets
Toys are only getting cheaper between now and Christmas. Look for 50% to 75% off and BOGO deals everywhere.
