The Year's Christmas Present - a juicer

The 2013 Christmas Present of the Year is a juicer. HUI Research, which has picked a gift of the year since 1988, said the decision was based on combining the current food and health trends where Swedes want to cook quality food from source.

"It is a product that reflects consumers' growing health consciousness as well as the strong do-it-yourself trend in food and drink," HUI said in a statement.

Previous picks have included headphones in 2012, the tablet PC in 2010, audio books in 2006, DVD players in 2000, and mobile phones in 1994.
