To help you find the trendiest gifts of 2023, we've put together a list of some of the most popular items this year!
What gifts are trending right now?
Current gifting trends prove one thing: covid trends and habits are over.
Homes are going from calm and modern to the newly-named "dopamine decor" with bright colors and fun, nostalgic prints. Health & Wellness is now dominated by technology, from anti-aging red lights to infrared recovery tools. With a world of people once again on-the-go, travel accessories and outdoor sports replace the at-home workouts and local road trips of 2020. While alcohol consumption increased 20% during quarantine, people are now reducing their intake with a rapidly expanding non-alcoholic drink market.
Gift redemptions from each category on the Loop & Tie Marketplace have been consistent throughout the year with Food & Drink being the strongest performer overall and Lifestyle following close behind.
