Beaded friendship bracelets are everywhere right now, but Little Words Project was the first brand to really popularize the trend.

Everyone can use a pair of cozy slippers. These ones from Bombas are for men and women, and they look like thick socks but feel like soft booties. Unlike the brand’s best-selling socks, they’re lined with sherpa fleece and have rubber grippers on the bottom to prevent slipping.
