Every year there is that one item that everyone just has to get before it sells out. It the 1980s it was the Cabbage Patch doll. In the 1990s, it was Tickle Me Elmo and the talking Furby. In 2014, a time when there are so many options for everything, here are the hottest must-have gifts to get (or put on your wish list):

Keurig 2.0 — Christmas morning — and every morning after that — just got a little brighter. Our favorite coffee brewing company has released its Keurig 2.0. The newest version not only brews the single cup but also a four-cup carafe. Now everyone can enjoy a cup-o-Joe at the same time. A touch screen allows multiple brewing options, sizes and strengths. Several varieties are available, some of which allow you to preheat your machine moments before you wake up and customize your touch display screen and water tank.

Keurig 2.0 comes with sample packs of pods for the carafe and single brews. Keurig 2.0 retails from $139 to $286 and is available at most major department stores including Macy’s, Walmart and Target and online.

Available at your local Toys’R’Us for $39.99.

LifeProof nuud Series Case. Today, your cell phone is pretty much equivalent to having an extra limb. You feel naked without it.

The phone case, which seals your phone but leaves your screen fully exposed, guarantees to protect against damage in the water, snow, dirt or case of dropping it on the ground.

With this new edition comes new tracks choreographed to dance to, including “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, “She Looks So Perfect” by 5 Seconds of Summer and “Black Widow” by Iggy Azalea featuring Rita Ora.

You can dance against friends and family and top-ranked people from around the world. You don’t even have to play at the same time. You can play against previous performances and share your score with the world. This game, rated to be fun for everyone 10 and older is sure to be fun for the entire family. This is a gift that is so hot, you’ll probably buy yourself one, too.
