Pre-Packaged Parenthood New parents turn to ready-made kits to aid in everyday responsibilities Implications - Preparing for parenthood can be a daunting task, causing many consumers to turn to survival packs for assistance and peace of mind. Providing everything from infant supplies to personal hygiene products, these pre-assembled kits reveal that soon-to-be parents are searching for more convenient and customized ways to prepare for life with children.

Eco Memorial Consumers turn to earth-friendly enshrining techniques to honor loved ones Implications - As eco-conscious consumers contemplate their personal carbon footprint, individuals are considering sustainability-minded memorial tributes to remember loved ones.

Upscale Tea A need for public consumption has resulted in upscale tea-drinking experiences Implications - Tea is a beverage closely associated with at-home relaxation, but as tea culture becomes more popular, consumers are more likely to want to enjoy the beverage in a public space with like-minded enthusiasts. To satiate this desire, there has been a rise in gourmet tea houses and luxurious out-of-home experiences, signaling that the beverage is evolving into an upscale indulgence.

Branded Milestone Brands step in to create memorable milestone experiences for consumers Implications - Brands today are aiming to feel less like anonymous corporate entities, and more like a comforting presence in consumers' lives. Wanting to further this quality in the consumer-brand relationship, many brands are offering custom online experiences that celebrate events and milestones in consumers' lives. This shift demonstrates that the stronger the brand humanization, the more willing consumers are to share intimate parts of their lives.

Macabre Animalism Critters in design are taken from cutesy to dark for added sophistication Implications - The use of animals in design used to signify a cutesy, meme-friendly tone. In today's society, where consumers are more concerned with individualism than pleasantries, this has shifted toward a darker tone. The use of animalism in a more macabre context questions the concept of humanity, providing what consumers crave: more meaningful experiences.

Offering strollers and baby seats that double as toys as well as integrate media devices, retailers are providing a way to distract and entertain infants in a way that maintains a level of care and comfort while on the go.

Compact Care Toddler accessories are given a travel-friendly overhaul with portable adjustments Implications - Offering toddlers and infants a sense of comfort, brands are redesigning traditional infant furnishings and accessories to be more adaptable outside the home. Making it easy to fold or collapse bassinets and play pens into compact, portable shapes, brands are offering typically large or hard to maneuver products in a more efficient and easy to transport model. This reflects a need to make travel experiences and routine outings more efficient without sacrificing comforts of home.
