When the founder has been a keynote speaker offering advice to the minds at Pinterest and Target, you know the business has to offer something good. Oh Joy! is a lifestyle brand that offers products and how-to advice, all that celebrate or create the various joyful moments found throughout everyday life.
The range of products the brand offers is huge — accessories, art prints, decor, tech, travel items and even some vintage goods. They’ve also collaborated with brands like Cheeky (paper goods found in Target) and Band-Aid.
The online shop is rather small, but with fewer options to choose from, it’s not overwhelming and, if you like the brand itself, you’re almost guaranteed to love the different items available. Everything is bright or pastel colors, in fun designs that have a little something extra — like the gold legs on this settee. This and other decor pieces are made to order and start at $670.
Quite adorably, the brand offers kids’ items, like baby carriers and even baby carriers for your baby, in case a toddler-sized person wants to carry their doll around in high style. You can also get a child’s armchair in an identical pattern to that of the adult-size armchair. Kids decor includes hot pink and metallic mobiles and sequin-covered foxes.
The travel items include packing cubes and carry-on rolling suitcases, starting at $48 for the cubes and $135 for the suitcases. Designs range from a sunset-inspired rainbow motif to confetti. You certainly won’t have trouble picking your bag out from the crowd at the airport.
If all of the above sounds great, but you just don’t have the budget at the moment, no worries. You can settle for a different option — the founder Joy Cho’s book for just $15 on Amazon. Oh Joy!: 60 Ways to Create & Give Joy provides tips and tricks for just that, from how to pick out your clothes to making your own wallpaper to creating fun snacks and handmade gifts.
