Odd, yet very tempting things from AliExpress

Let's get real. You probably don't need beer socks, a burrito blanket, or a taxidermy alligator for your day-to-day activities.

The beauty of AliExpress is that it has a ton of odd things, and it is known for its cheap prices. This E-commerce platform doesn't produce its own products, and instead it relies on independent small businesses in China and South-East Asia.

And since there are a lot of sellers, and listing prices are significantly lower than on places like, say, Amazon, and the warehousing in most cases is handled by the sellers, there are things that you are less likely to find anywhere else.

While we have a ton of useful things on our site, this collection is dedicated to those who believe that the quality of life can be improved by buying things that genuinely make you smile ear to ear when you interact with them.

You probably don't need a Squidward doormat, a bob wig for your dog, or a whack-a-mole hanger for your day-to-day activities.

But, after all, why shouldn't you have them?

DIVER FIGURINES

Price: $12.48+

Resin-made diver figurines. They are hand-painted, and there are 4 different shapes/forms.

Whether you are a diver or not, you can dive into the realm of decorating your own living space with style.

SQUIDWARD MAT

Price: $17.75

What better way to get out of the steamy (or cold) shower, than to step on a face of a cartoon character, that you hated as a kind, but the one that most adults identify the most with?

BEER SOCKS

Price: $4.75

You don't have to be a beer enthusiast to appreciate these socks, but it definitely helps.

This listing has a few other designs that are and are not beer-related.

DOG BOB WIG

Price: $7.05

Ok, I don't really know what to say about this, but it seems to me that a description is not really required.

WHACK-A-MOLE HANGER

Price: $3.45

A hanger for keys/reusable face masks/light jackets/anything else, where a groundhog pops up while it's in use.

I have one for my dog's leash, and it's amazing. There are squirrels, cats, bears and ladybug options available 😃

BURRITO BLANKET

Price: $9.25+

If you have a toddler, or if you identify as a burrito (don't we all on Monday mornings), this pita blanket will bring you one step closer to help your outer self reflect your inner world.

AN AMAZING SHREK THROW BLANKET

Price: $33.00

This is either a way to keep your virginity, or instantly lose it to a person with a very weird amazing taste.

TEA TOWELS

Price: $4.99

Absorb your oolong tea spills in style.

Personally, these tea towels aren't the first thing that comes to mind when I think of decorating my kitchen, but I have to admit they look low-key luxurious.

TAXIDERMY ALLIGATORS

Price: $54.60

“Hey mayte, haow was yoah waykend?”

“Aye, the usual, downed a Fosters and shawt a couple crawcs.”

Definitely in poor taste.

SKINNY WALL-MOUNTED VASE

Price: $18.73

I really like the look of these. I would imagine, they would work best with fake plants.

AVOCADO PHONE CASE + SOCKET

Price: $2.23

iPhone cases with avocados on them that have an avocado pop socket. What not to like?

Unless you don't like the color green, or avocadoes, in which case there is a lemon, peach, watermelon and a strawberry designs. You've got to like at least one of those, right?

SLEEPING BAG THAT YOU CAN WALK IN

Price: $50.99

Dork factor? 10/10

Functionality? Also 10/10.

I mean, it's a sleeping bag that you can walk in and sleep in.

Might be best to stay away further from the campfire. With how warm it will keep you, it shouldn't be a problem.

SAFETY VEST FOR YOUR CHICKEN

Price: $4.60

A high-vis vest for your chickens. This way they are going to be safe crossing the road.

AND A HELMET (SAFETY FIRST!)

Price: $2.09

And for the most hot-headed chickens, a helmet will be necessary.

POP-IT IPHONE CASE

Price: $2.31

The days of fidget spinners are long gone. Pop-its are replacing them. It's like an infinite supply of bubble wrap.

GLASS TEA INFUSER WITH A CORK PLUG

Price: $1.81

A stylish tea infuser.

I think the glass ones are better than the metal (glass doesn't get oxidized and there is less doubts of what material it is), and it also looks better IMO.

The diameter is 1″ so it shouldn't be that hard to clean it.

‘MAKE IT RAIN' MONEY PISTOL

Price: $7.92

A perfect metaphor of what it feels like shopping on AliExpress, especially during the 11.11 sale.
