50 Fun Discoveries of 2020

If you’re not signed up for our email list, you’re missing out on a special monthly tradition: Dara’s Friday 5! It’s a collection of five things our founder discovered and loved, neatly packaged to help you share in the inspiration.

This year, we’ve found it more important than ever to celebrate small wins and find joy in the little things. With that spirit in mind, we’ve gathered our most amazing finds of 2020 into one clickable, shareable list. (Bonus: Asterisks denote items that would make fantastic holiday gifts!)
