10 Gifts That Were All The Rage 10 Years Ago

It wasn't that long ago but it feels like forever ago. Oh, how times have changed!

10 Gifts That Were All The Rage 10 Years Ago

We all know the gifts that we would have wanted 10 years ago and would have been so excited to receive, that we were all writing on our wish lists to Santa. It feels like not too long ago we were all waiting to unwrap these gifts and just open these presents. Here are a few throwbacks, some that are so cringe-worthy to think it was just 2007 that these were so popular.

1. Heelys

I think we can all remember the days where we were actually excited to be doing errands with our parents inside a supermarket because we would be sliding all up and down the aisles or to go to school with them until they started saying we weren't allowed to anymore...

2. Xbox 360

Opening this up on Christmas day made us the happiest kid around! This is almost revolutionary and helped to create the Great Divide of PlayStation vs Xbox.

3. Silly Bandz

What a simple item to get in our stocking and yet so fulfilling as we all couldn't wait to go back to school after that winter break just to trade with our friends.

4. Runescape gift cards

This was one of my personal favorites as coming across that membership was a blessing. Plus, going further into the wild was always fun.

5. Bratz dolls

These were so in - everyone was obsessed with them for a while, then they kind of just faded out.

6. "Twilight" series

Everyone can agree that this was an ABSOLUTE must-read and must-see! Were you a Jacob or Edward fan? This started a whole vampires-being-in thing as well. I still have my "Twilight" books somewhere...

7. Tamagotchi

Does there even have to be anything said? This was an obsession for years. Everyone had one or knew someone who had one. We didn't even need real pets, we had this.

8. Blackberry

I never had one but I can tell you that so many of my friends did, yet now I can't tell you one person who has a Blackberry. Absolutely crazy!

9. Guitar Hero 3

EVERYBODY WANTED THIS, ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR GAMES OF THE YEAR! You can even find it in arcades today! This was the first time having wireless guitars! SO MUCH FUN!!!!

10. Bop It

I loved when I got this as my Christmas gift and became obsessed. Bop it, twist it, pull it!!

And there you go! Some of the throwbacks that you can get nostalgic about and remember. Have a Merry Christmas!!!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
