Household items and their dull looks can leave us so uninspired to do our chores, that we tend to look away from that pile of clothes on the designated chair, tens of unwashed teacups and constantly misplaced keys. If only there’d be a way to solve it all with some cool gadgets, right?
Enter Fred & Friends. If you haven’t already heard about it, these guys design very cool things, that can make our mundane lives at least a tiny bit brighter. By the way, if you think that Bored Panda is being paid for this review, you are wrong! Every item at Fred and Friends is enough to be viral, so much so, that this shop probably doesn’t need to invest much in advertising. However, we’d love to lay our paws on some of these gag gifts ourselves.
From drumstick spatulas and an excellent hand saw cake cutter to a wine mug for the beer lover, Fred and Friends have enough creative ideas to cater to everyone’s needs. Scroll down to see our picks of the best gifts from these imaginative guys.
You can also find them on their online store.
