1. Flaire & Co. Sterling Huggies ($13)
Flaire & Co. Sterling Huggies are tiny, glittering hoops that help make the perfect earring stack (stacks are all the rage if you hadn’t noticed). Flaire & Co. was founded just 3 years ago by AAPI entrepreneur Dorothy Deng, who was on a quest to offer affordable pieces that didn’t irritate the skin. I am very sensitive to earrings and I can wear these for days on end. Check out one of the brand’s viral TikToks here, with 2 million views!

2. Sterling Forever Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Oval Promise Ring ($56)
Apparently, promise/fake engagement rings are a thing amongst Millennials who are watching their wallets. This stunning ring from Sterling Forever – a brand I already love for its budget-friendly costume jewelry pieces – is an affordable way to say “I love you.” It’s an impressive placeholder until you can spring for the real thing!

3. UnHide ($45- $199)
This brand specializes in all things cozy, including their 100% cruelty-free, faux fur Marshmallow Blanket(which is a favorite in my family; we even travel with it) and the Shleepy wearable blanket/sweater, which I recently tried and will be wearing all winter. The brand’s videos have gained over 20 million likes on TikTok, including this one, where TikTok star Josh Richards (and UnHide co-creative director and investor) demo’s the blanket “burrito challenge.”

Staying hydrated is incredibly important, especially for athletes.

The jug keeps drinks cold for 60+ hours, making it not only ideal for long, intense workouts, but for car camping, road trips, power outages, and more. Here’s Gronk’s popular TikTok video.

It’s also great for baby/pet-proofing, and there are lots of different options based on how your outlets are oriented. This #1 Best Seller on Amazon has over 3 million views on their TikTok video.

13. OTOTO Nessie Ladle ($10.99)
Given its irresistible cuteness, it’s no surprise that this ladle has gone viral with 345 thousand likes on TikTok.
