Mirrors and shelves have always been suitable for mounting on walls. Here’s a set of wall mounted shelves and mirror that have been made into a single item.
The shelves from the Mirette series by Guillaume Delvigne come with a mirror integrated into the design, which makes it multipurpose, where the presence of a mirror can help to make a room look more spacious, apart from its primary purpose allowing you to check yourself out. In addition the shelf allows a place for decorative items or accessories to be placed on.
A set of beautiful designed wall-shelf mirror combo that will fit the style of a modern home.

Need a quick way to prop up your smartphone outdoors? If only there was a way to grab something out of your pocket in an instant to use as a smartphone stand… All that is possible with this key, not just an ordinary key, but a smartphone stand made to look like a key.
The KeyProp is a smartphone stand that looks more like a key than its intended purpose, a smartphone stand. It comes with jacks that connect either to the earphone port or the lightning port of an iPhone, and the rest of its body to act as a stand for propping up a smartphone.
As it’s shaped like a key, it will fit together with the bunch of keys that most of us carry around anyway, so whenever you’re outside and need a smartphone stand, you can just take the whole bunch out of your pocket or bag and use the KeyProp even without removing it from the key chain.
A cool gadget that is both small and very useful to have around with a bunch of keys for the modern techie.
Sticky notes are useful not only for memos and notes, but in the case of slim sized sticky notes, they are useful for bringing attention to a particular section of a page of a book.
Here’s one set of sticky notes that will bring a lot more attention to a particular section of a page, and it’s the second most effective way apart from pointing it with your own finger – a set of sticky notes that are made to look just like human index fingers.
They come with adhesive on one side so you’ll be able to attach it to any part of a page to remind yourself to take more attention to that section of a page.
One clever design to the already useful sticky note page markers.
When there’s a whisk involved in cooking, there’s a good chance that there is egg in the recipe. When there’s egg involved there’s also a chance that egg yolk separation is needed. Here’s one whisk that makes it easy to not only whisk egg or batter but also separate an egg from yolk its white.
The egg yolk separating whisk comes with its spokes designed not only for whisking liquids, but a section shaped into an inverted dome for separating an egg yolk.
All you need to do is to crack an egg onto the inverted dome-shaped recess. What will happen is that the egg yolk will stay in place right on top, while the rest of the egg will flow through the whisk. Perhaps while using the whisk you should practice cracking an egg with one hand to perform the task perfectly.
A cool whisk design that turns the ordinary whisk into one that comes with a secondary useful purpose, which is to separate egg yolks from eggs.
Eating potato chips is a favorite for many of us, but when the crumbs drop on the table, the result is a greasy stain. However, here’s a pack of potato chips that do not create a greasy stain, but actually protect your table instead.
This is a set of coasters that look like potato chips, specifically the ruffled potato chip. They function as drink coasters that will prevent moisture from leaving a stain and damaging the surface of a table.
It’s always nice to have something to drink to go along with potato chips, so when you prepare to grab that pack of potato chips and a drink, you’ll probably remember to grab one of these giant potato chips for use as a drink coaster on the way.
The bag that comes with the potato chip coasters also look very much like a pack of potato chips with a re-sealable opening, so there’s a nice place to keep the drink coasters when they’re not in use. Just make sure not to mistake it for a bag of real potato chips and try to consume its contents.
A funny-looking yet useful drink coaster that will be good as a housewarming gift.
If you live in an apartment, it is near to impossible to use a traditional barbecue grill in the house. Here’s one way to get a small BBQ going if you have a balcony with this handrail BBQ grill.
Instead of using a stand, this BBQ grill called the ‘BBQ Bruce Handrail Grill’ makes use of brackets to allow it to hang from a horizontal position from a handrail. With this, hosting a small BBQ party is possible and since only a small space is needed, it will fit nicely on a handrail even on a small balcony.
All that is needed is to secure the hanging BBQ grill to the handrail with the brackets and mounts provided, and you’re off to grill up a storm. Since the brackets can be removed, after the BBQ session is done the entire set can be disassembled and kept for storage until the next party.
The brackets also allow for the grill to be wall-mounted as well, which makes for even more possibilities for places where it can be used, even right in the kitchen as long you have good ventilation or an exhaust system.
A clever way to BBQ using a space-saving solution.
Super Mario is the famous character from Nintendo portrayed as an Italian plumber who goes around a fantasy world trying to save Princess Peach. Here’s one lamp designed and dedicated to Super Mario with a pipe theme.
The main pipe which houses the electrical parts is an old-looking pipe. On one end, instead of a valve or tap, a light bulb is attached on it. Obviously this is one pipe that doesn’t deliver any sort of liquid or gas, but one that delivers light.
The main feature of this Super Mario pipe-themed lamp has to be the way it is switched on or off. At the left side there is the recognizable green pipe just like from the Super Mario series of games.
Above the green pipe you’ll find Super Mario dangling from a chain, perhaps to show Mario in action like how he pops out of a green pipe in the game. To toggle the light on and off, all you need is to give Mario a tug on the chain and the light can be switched on or off.
A true work of art dedicated towards the Nintendo game that has evolved since its humble beginnings. The best thing about this is that can be bought and placed in your own home.
One awesome-looking lamp fit for the ultimate Super Mario fan.
A TV junkie’s best friend has to be the remote. Here’s one remote that doesn’t actually work as a TV remote control at all, but will let you use it as a nice pillow while you watch TV.
The TV remote pillow comes in the style of a retro TV remote, with buttons that control teletext and even a button for the VCR, the long obsolete analog video that gave way to the DVDs and Blu-rays of today’s digital content. It is large enough to give you something to hug whenever that’s something heartwarming or sad showing, and also something comfy where you can rest on.
You can try to press the buttons but they won’t work on any real TV, but somewhere in the imaginary world of retro televisions there might be one that will hopefully respond to it.
A cool and interesting gift for someone who loves to watch TV.
Here’s one lollipop maker that lets you make a giant Chupa Chups lollipop. Not the exact candy lollipop, but a giant freeze pop.

Watch the video of the Chupa Chups ice lollipop maker in action:
One interesting way of making your own tasty treat for the a hot summer day.
Salt and pepper shakers come in many forms, but here’s one that comes in a sleek-looking style complete with a fine metallic finish.
This salt and pepper shaker set may look like it comes in one piece, but in actual fact are held together by a pair of magnets so they are able to stay up stuck together and standing while in this unique angle. On their own, the individual shakers can’t stand on their own but when placed together, they are able to support each other. This is also held true by the philosophy in cooking that salt and pepper always work to bring out the flavor of many kinds of food.
When salt and pepper is needed, simply separate the shakers, use them normally and simply put them back together when you’re done. With the opening being held by magnets, the tops cover themselves pretty well so it won’t be easy for dust and dirt to get into the containment area when not in use.
A sleek and fine-looking salt and pepper shaker set perfect for a modern home.
