Top 80 Unique Ideas in November

From Creepy Primate Decor to Rock Climbing Weddings

— November 29, 2014 — Eco
This collection of the top November 2014 unique ideas features a wide array of products and services that satisfy an unimaginable list of niche consumer needs. Two patterns -- in food and home decor -- seem to stand out the most among the collection.

It is no secret that gastronomy has committed itself to creating the most unexpected -- and often confusing -- combinations of food -- and items like the candied, edible blood bags from Oriental Trading prove this. The avocado recipe infused with cannabis and the seaweed bars prove that the cravings for incredibly bizarre flavors are still a driving force in the food industry.

Some of the most noteworthy ideas on the list outside of food include the rock climbing weddings and the romantic burger operas -- where you can get your fix for beef and baritone.

For more insight into the ways brand seek inspiration from the November 2014 unique ideas, visit Trend Hunter's Unique Trend Report.
