We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

All of the things on this list are a little funky and sort of strange, but seriously — so many people are obsessed with them. So, yes, they're quirky, but these 50 weird things are trending and, most importantly, help up-level your home (also, a few are perfect for work or your car).

The super colorful sunset lamp on this list is a perfect example of an on-trend, weird-yet-wonderful thing. It casts an aesthetic ombre orb reminiscent of a sunset right on your wall, plus it has 16 colors and four sunset settings so you can even create the Martian dusk of your dreams. Staying with the nature theme, there's also a set of faux ivy vines to bring some upkeep-free greenery indoors, as well as a cosmic-fabulous galaxy projector.

On the more helpful side of these slightly strange items, check out the honeycomb-shaped drawer organizers. Instead of your go-to squared-off inserts, you can snap these together how you need. They’re ultra-versatile and trimmable, and come in 20 different pack options. Also, definitely don't miss the rug grips that don't get sticky adhesive on your wood floor and the adorable sliding "clean" or "dirty" dishwasher magnet. Plus, there's even a cotton foot hammock that hangs under your desk with an added clip to hold your things.
