15 silly items that will bring joy to your home

5 months ago

What was the last time you purchased something you didn’t really have much use for? Or maybe it was something useful, but you only bought it thanks to its great and funny design. We gathered 15 items that will definitely be useful to many of you, but it’s their silly design that catches everyone’s attention.

1. Tiny hands, you can either hold them from their sticks or put them on your fingers. It’s the perfect funny gift for all kinds of events. You can place them on your pet and take the most amazing pictures.

The skin friendly material bends and folds, but retains its shape perfectly. This material also resists catching dust and dirt compared to softer models.

Promising review:

  • So I ordered these and they are great! They put a smile on everyone’s face when I pull them out. The quality is really nice, and it fits well on any finger. They also come with a handy like handle? If that’s what you’d call it, that make it easier if you want to pull your sleeves up and pretend they’re your hands for like a prank.
    The material is rubbery which makes it a bit easier to try and pick things up (opposed to like plastic) and it’s just overall super funny and awesome! I would definitely gift these to someone! @Madeline M

2. Pickle bottle stopper that helps preserve your wine perfectly. It is designed with flexible silicone to easily fit most wine bottles. It is 3.5’’ tall and can be a great conversation starter at your home gatherings.

The wine stopper is made from 100% food grade silicone and should be washed by hand. It arrives packed in a sturdy, colorful box, ready for gifting to anyone who loves good wine.

Promising review:

  • This thing is a HOOT! People love it when I use it and it’s always a hit. Downside is it’s hard to fit it in the fridge door, so I had to readjust the 2nd shelf a little higher. It’s a soft rubber/silicone material, and you just tuck the white part in the wine and stand back and giggle.
    I’ve had it a good while now and use it all the time. I’m a wine freak and a gadget freak, so anything that makes that activity more entertaining or efficient gets my vote. @Canon

3. Cat hand towels that come in a variety of colors. The snap button of the cat’s hands prevents the towel from slipping off. It is suitable for wiping your hands and face. When you wipe your hands from the cat’s belly, you will be amazed by the soft fabric.

The towels are 85% polyester 15% nylon. The soft and comfortable fabric has strong water absorption. They not only dry your water droplets, but also add some fun to your bathroom or kitchen.

Promising review:

  • This towel is really cute. The cat is pretty realistic looking for being a towel. It’s too cute for using like you would a regular old hand towel, and it isn’t the most absorbent. But it’s worthwhile if you like cats and want something to cheer up your sink area. @MeM Kemper

4. Mini cloud box cutters in 6 different colors, including orange, purple, green, blue, white, and pink. The blade of the mini cutter is retractable. Just push out the blade when needed and its length can be fixed by pushing the button.

There is a hanging hole on the shell, which can be connected to a key ring for easy carrying. Their size is 2.2×1.4 inches and the thickness of the retractable blade is 0.017 inches. You can just carry it into your pocket.

Promising review:

  • I love these little things. My teenager has even stolen a few. I glued magnets to the back of a few and put on the refrigerator and on the back of the metal front door. These things can cut open my Amazon boxes easily without much fuss.
    My teen used it to cut apart the boxes for an art project, so they even stand up to regular use. I may have to buy another set, so I can keep some from my teen this time. Even thinking of carrying a few in the car. @Amy H

5. Bus-shaped egg holder that can fit 12 eggs. This whimsical tray keeps your eggs fresh and fun. It’s hygienic and super sturdy. When it’s time to clean up, simply pop it in the dishwasher. It is food-safe and made from BPA-free materials.

It is sturdy enough to even stack multiple buses on top of one another. It makes up for the perfect quirky gift from anyone who loves kitchen-related presents.

Promising review:

  • The main reason I got this bus was due to its really cool design, but also because my young son loves “wheels on the bus” nursery rhyme. Sure enough, he saw it in the fridge and started singing the song. I highly recommend it. All the eggs fit perfectly. @MJ

6. Cherry-shaped toilet brush that is durable and has soft and thick bristles, which can remove stains forcefully. It is rust resistant, with non-porous base design, making it great for storage. The long, curved handle prevents dirty water from splashing on your body.

The toilet brush is space-saving and can be hung on the wall if not in use. It helps reduce kneeling and bending, since it is easy to grab and use. It won’t flip or tip over, and allow water to drain.

Promising review:

  • Adds a cute touch of class to the bathroom! You don’t have to worry about guests judging you for your dirty toilet brush any longer! They will never know! @Amazon Customer

7. Red lips holder where you can store your makeup and jewelry. This organizer is super easy to clean; just wipe it with a damp cloth or rinse it underwater directly. Its compact size makes it ideal for any space, no matter how small.

You can place this item anywhere in your house, including the living room, the dresser, and even your bathroom. It is also great for placing on a retail shop’s counter as decoration.

Promising review:

  • The make of the ceramic lips is just what I wanted. But I thought it would have been more of a shiny ruby/fire engine red. So I painted the top lip with red nail polish. @Shoeaholic

8. Crazy soda flavors that come in a pack of 6, including Buffalo wing, bacon, ranch dressing, peanut butter and jelly, sweet corn, and pumpkin pie. They all have a low caffeine content, making it a great option for adults.

These soda pop bottles are made for adults and have a refreshing cucumber flavor that will cool you down on a hot day. Plus, the 12-ounce bottles with their fun labels will make them stand out on the shelf.

Promising review:

  • These are unique flavors, to say the least. If you are thinking you are going to sit down and drink the whole bottle, not happening. We used them for “punishments” when someone lost at family game night. It was awesome and hilarious. If you want to cheat I can tell you ranch is the worst so make sure if you lose you don’t pick that one to take a shot of. @Britt

9. Bicycle hamburger bell that will definitely attract all eyes on you and your bike. It is constructed with internal steel dome and molded composite exterior. It measures 22.2 mm in length and 65 mm in diameter.

This hamburger bell filled with lettuce, pickles, sauce, and onions will be so popular that you may need to remove it at night so no one will steal it.

Promising review:

  • If I remember correctly, I gifted this three years ago on Christmas to my little brother. We have a very busy household, kids in and out, and this ringer has survived the test of time. Still works like it’s new. The fading has begun, but it still looks like a hamburger! And it’s to be expected, as with anything that is often left out in the weather and used a lot. @Anne Marie

10. Creative hooks, where you can hang your coats, scarves, umbrellas, toys, cups, and other kitchen utensils. The pet designs look like the animals are playing hide and seek. The hooks feature adhesive tape that easily sticks on your wall without leaving residue.

No need to nail or drill. They can be used on a variety of smooth surfaces such as wood, tile, ceramic, metal, and plastic. Not suitable for wallpaper, painted walls or other rough surfaces.

Promising review:

  • I got these to hold my motorcycle bags, and the heaviest one I have is my turtle shell looking one. I also must say that the thing is nothing short from being super lightweight. I’ve had these things hanging on my wall since I got these bad boys, and I can definitely say they be sticking. I didn’t want something cheesy just sitting on my wall giving me the death glare, so these definitely worked out better than I expected.
    Not only are they super cute, but they can hold about anything you could think of. They have been going strong, and I expect them to continue to go strong, which they should, I would be disappointed if they didn’t. On that note, I don’t remember exactly, but I could’ve sworn there was a thing to hang it up by a screw if you really wanted to. @emi

11. Mushroom fridge deodorizer that absorbs odors in its belly. Before using for the first time, wash the little mushroom. Take the lid off and pour in baking soda. Place the top back on and put it in the egg section of your fridge.

It is made of dishwasher-safe and heat-resistant silicone material, and is safe to use around food. You can put it anywhere in your fridge, but it will be more productive on the egg shelf.

Promising review:

  • I absolutely love how much of an added accent this is to my fridge! I’m someone who always loves useful yet aesthetically pleasing additions to anything. Seeing my personality shine through the items I own is something I take pride in. This little guy proves to do an amazing job keeping all the scents in my fridge at a minimum.
    He’s small and can fit in anywhere. It’s easy to knock him over, so keep an eye out for that, but overall an amazing addition to my fridge. Also keep track of when to swap out the baking soda, the efficiency of its odor removal can depend on how much you add and how long it’s been there. @Lesley

12. Bacon bandages that don’t only look appetizing, but also are very adhesive. Each bandage measures 3″ long x 1″ wide. They come in a beautiful tin and each one contains 15 bandages. Keep in mind that each tin also contains a prize!

These bandages are great to treat small scratches and injuries. They are very realistic and look like small slabs of bacon. You will definitely get hungry after using them.

Promising review:

  • What’s funnier than a bandage shaped like meat? NOTHING. Nothing is funnier. Be the life of the party when you show up at church with a couple of these on your face. Carry a bacon air-freshener in your pocket, and you’re set to go! @P. M. Bradshaw

13. Pooping pooches calendar that will spice up every day. Each month has a new picture of a dog in this funny position. No fecal matter is visible, though. $1 from each sale is donated to help a dog in need.

The calendar is 17×11 inches when open and the pictures are real, not photoshopped or made through AI. A dalmatian, poodle, Portuguese water dog, labradoodle, German shepherd, and husky are included.

Promising review:

  • The photographer of these photos was masterful in capturing the soul of these pooches as they relieve their bowels. The facial expressions are moving, and the natural scenes are breathtaking. The cover photo is tasteful in not displaying any fecal matter. The cover title and font is well selected for alliteration and a subtle but attention grabbing message.
    My favorite photo is of Charlie, who is delighted to be lightening his load while wearing a spirited costume for fun. This calendar is suitable for gifting to family members, work colleagues, clergy, and those you disdain. @B. Rice

14. Toilet mug, where you can enjoy your daily coffee before running to the real-size toilet. It can hold 12 oz of liquid, and you may even use it as a bowl for snacks. It is an amazing gift. You can also use it to serve food during fun home gatherings.

Unlike other low-quality funny coffee mugs that can’t pass the test of time, this toilet cup is crafted with durable ceramic materials to house your morning cup of joe for years.

Promising review:

  • Purchased fifteen ’toilet’ coffee mugs as gifts for cast members working on a play that featured a bathroom remodel. The order came superfast, well-packed, in perfect condition. The mugs themselves very nice quality: ceramic, not cheap plastic, with a nice size and heft, perfect for a gift. Maybe not so good for drinking from as the bowl is large, but perfect as a desk accessory or candy dish. And they’re funny! @Gina Jones

15. Dishwasher magnets that can let anyone in the house know whether it’s clean or dirty. The package includes a bonus adhesive metal plate for any non-magnetic dishwasher. They are flexible, thick, and water-resistant. They won’t peel or leave residue.

The magnets are double-sided, which means that you easily flip them depending on the condition of the dishes in your washer. They are 3.5×3.5 inches and wrapped in high quality PVC.

Promising review:

  • Arrived exactly as pictured and is everything I ever wanted and more for my dishwasher. Makes it easy for everyone in my house to know if the dishes are clean or dirty. @John de Guzman

Sometimes all we need is to purchase items that will make us happy, even if their use isn’t necessary for us. For example, you may see something on TikTok that catches your eye and feel like you need to have it.
