This idea might seem that it was taken from a prank show, but it’s pretty helpful especially for road trips. A lot of people are actually modifying their cars to have a cozy bed at the backseat for late-night sessions or as an emergency should you need a place to sleep in.

4. Anti-Theft Lunch Bags

It may seem ridiculous, but you never have to worry about losing your lunch from prying hands anymore. This creative idea gives off the appearance of mold in your sandwich which of course looks unappetizing to eat.

5. Fruit Spritzer

At first glance, it just looks like an ordinary pump-style nozzle. However, this amazing idea can be an ideal tool in the kitchen especially if you just want to have a hint of fruit on your dish or drinks. Take a lemon, for example, a squeeze may be a bit too much but when you just spray some of it on your food or drink, it wouldn’t be as strong as squeezing it.

6. Shower Foot Rest

There’s nothing more convenient than having a mounted footrest in your shower. Just imagine how it would make shaving your legs way easier than having to bend all the way over.

7. Butter Stick

I bet most of us would agree that butter tastes better on almost anything. This butter stick applicator seems the right combination of functionality and craziness but it’s definitely worth the hype. Just roll it forward and glide that delicious butter all over a piece of bread and you’re good to go.

8. Light Up Slippers

9. Pizza Scissors

Pizza is undeniably one of the most delicious comfort food out there. And if you think that using a knife or pizza cutter is the best way to slice it up, think again! Pizza scissors are way easier than the traditional ones since you can be more precise when slicing it.

10. Toothpaste Tube Squeezer

Working 9 hours a day, 5x a week can be pretty stressful for most of us. What’s even worse is when you have a boss that you don’t really go along with that makes you want to have a drink by the end of the day. This silly yet handy flask tie can allow you to have a sip of your favorite drink anytime you want. Not really a good idea to have a drink of alcohol in the office though.

12. Multitasking Pan

There’s nothing like a good, heavy breakfast to jumpstart your day. When we say breakfast, pancakes and eggs would probably be the first thing that comes into mind. This clever multitasking pan allows you to cook them both at the same time. Perfect when you’re in a hurry or running late for work or school.
