Welcome to the first episode of DTC Hunter! In this episode, we're diving into the most bizarre and intriguing purchases of 2023. Let's recap the top 10 purchases and why they made the list.

10. The 7-Eleven Collection

Starting off with the 7-Eleven collection, a surprising find in the world of fashion. It was definitely a shock drop! The quality may not be top-tier, but the vibe and uniqueness of their offerings really spoke to people. It's sold out now, but if you can get your hands on it, it's a must-try for any fashion enthusiast.

9. Last Crumb Cookies

Last Crumb's famous cookies, priced at a whopping $175, aren't just any cookies; they're a luxury experience! The SMS drop model was intriguing and had to try them out. The shopping experience was impeccable, making it an indulgence worth every penny.

8. TohaaDesign Paris- Fancy Toilet Seat Set

Who said bathroom decor had to be boring? TohaaDesign creates designer toilet seat sets that completely transform bathrooms. It's all about making your home inspirational and unique. I stumbled upon this gem through PPC and just had to buy it due to their quirky designs!

7. Stamptitude- Family Crest Stamp

For a touch of personal flair, invest in a custom family crest stamp. Stamptitude delivered a high-quality product that allows anyone to add a personal touch to their stationery. It's not just a stamp; it's a symbol of family heritage and a conversation starter.

6. Gucci Incense Holder

Luxury meets practicality with this Gucci incense holder. Despite the lackluster online shopping experience, the unboxing was a 12 out of 10. It's a premium piece that adds a touch of elegance to any space.

5. Liquid Death X Nixon Watch

Liquid Death isn't just a beverage; it's a lifestyle. Their collaboration with Nixon produced a stunning watch that's both functional and stylish. Impeccable social media and email marketing were killer selling points to make the purchase!

4. Wonder Machines Home Decor

Wonder Machines caught eyes with their creative Instagram ads, leading to the purchase of a fascinating piece of home decor. The product is automation-friendly, and the unboxing experience was a delight, showcasing how creative marketing can win over customers

3. D&G Fancy Towels Debacle

Sometimes, high-end luxury doesn't always deliver. This fancy D&G towel purchase turned out to be a disaster, with a terrible shopping experience to boot. Lesson learned: utility sometimes outweighs brand value.

2. Elon Musk's Burnt Hair Cologne

When Elon Musk releases a product, you know it's going to be unique. The burnt hair cologne was an impulse buy with no regret. The Shopify experience was decent, and the product itself is a conversation starter.

1. Brazil Gem- Amethyst Geode

Finally, the wildest purchase: an amethyst geode from Brazil Gem. It was a retargeting ad that caught attention, and the flawless delivery resulted in a stunning piece of decor that aligns chakras (or so they say).

In conclusion, 2023 was a year of bold purchases and unique experiences. Each item on this list represents a different facet of modern consumerism, from luxury to functionality to the downright bizarre. Stay tuned for more unboxings and reviews in the next episode!
