AliExpress is not just cheap random items with no particular purpose, with some research you can find quality items that would cost 2x or more in your local stores. Light fixtures, wall stickers, rugs, wall clocks – you name it.
Most of these things are already made in China, so why pay more to the middlemen?
Here are some of the unique home decor items from AliExpress.
Animal print rug (imitation)
6 print options
This is not an actual cow, just a polyester imitation with an anti-slip latex bottom lining. The size of the rug is approx. 120 x 75 cm (~43.3 x 29.5 in.).

Retro-style flip clock
Price: $27.51 + shipping
This is a version that shows hours and minutes only, there is another one that shows seconds too, for $52.04. Be warned though, they are NOISY, so it is probably better to keep them outside of your bedroom.

Decorative creative wall “trophies”
5 color options
It's a cool concept nonetheless, and the price is right; but I'm not sure why there are 5 different color options, since they are not visible, but anyway…

Not automatic, it requires no batteries to run. Before you use it, you need to dispense the paste to the device, for it to distribute it. Some people in comments have reported that the plastic is thin, which is expected for the price. The toothbrushes and toothpaste is not included, the toothbrush holder for 5 brushes is.

Bathroom memory foam rug
6 color options
Super soft. Imagine stepping on that instead of a cold floor when you walk out of the shower!

I'm guessing that it's ferrofluid, but I can be wrong. Also, how long is it running for? Nobody seems to know.
I guess, there is only one way to find out.

3D-imitation cold acrylic light
Many different designs
(skip to 1:56 for the review)
The lights are acrylic: they are always cold, and you can't burn yourself on them. The “bulbs” are easily interchangeable.
There are a ton of different designs: here is a store that sells just 3D lamps.
I have one of these – shaped as a supersport motorcycle (I love bikes, currently riding a Suzuki DRZ400). You can see the review here.

Ocean nightlight projector with sound
Quite magical, if you ask me.

Inflatable transparent bubble tent
Price: $680.00 (you may be able find slightly cheaper ones, but this is the cheapest one that I saw that has a “hallway”).
An introvert's dream. I can only imagine how awesome it would be to sit inside one of these in the rain.
