Top 100 Unique Trends for 2021

From Luxury Fashion-Branded Cookies to Actor-Themed Face Masks

— January 15, 2021 — Unique
From luxury fashion-branded cookies to actor-themed face masks, this list of 2021 unique trends showcases unusual and novel products.

One standout from the round of 2021 unique trends is the collaboration between DL Chicken Shack and Beta5 Chocolates, dubbed the 'Side of Milk' chocolate bar. This "unique" chocolate bar has chicken skin-infused inside of it for a carnivorous and unusual snack.

Another intriguing example is Firebox.com Joe’s Exotic condoms which are described to offer "big cat protection." The condoms leverage the Netflix docu-series, Tiger King, and the condoms are alcohol-free, non-spermicidal lubricated, kitemarked, CE marked, and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients.

For more tech innovations in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter’s 2021 Trend Report.
