It was hard to pick from the star-studded crew, but here are eight acts that deserve their curtain call.

Mama O's Premium Kimchi was a happy accident.
Kheedim Oh never intended to start a company—he just needed some kimchi. His parents (Mama & Papa O) lived hundreds of miles away, so going over to bum a jar wasn't a convenient option. So, like all devoted kimchi addicts, he decided to make it himself, and unexpectedly, it took off. Mama O’s brings the nostalgia of home cooking and fermentation to your kitchen through sleek, simple design.
It’s not every day you stumble upon an ice cream worthy of the cover of Vogue, pulling cues from the body and beauty category. Radiant quite literally radiates; whether it’s the collagen inside or the beautiful metallic design is the real question. The pack tells you what you want to hear (nutrient-rich, organic, natural, and gluten-free) while also giving you all the feels. Selfie with a pint anyone?
