Shark Tank products work best when people have that immediate reaction: “I want it.” That’s what Shark Lori Greiner means when she says she knows right away if a product is “a hero or a zero.”
What’s great about the Shark Tank formula is that it’s basically a built-in test of whether a product will make a good gift. If it’s a “hero” — a Shark Tank success story — it’s pretty likely that the people on your holiday list will love it. Many of these products appeared on our earlier list of “27 Shark Tank favorites where inspiration meets invention.”
