When I’m looking for quirky, fun gifts, I inevitably end up suggesting about a hundred different things from the Fred & Friends brand.
It’s the ultimate White Elephant gift destination, with punny, kitschy gifts that appeal to pretty much anyone who likes anything. From Taylor Swift to your zany uncle Bob, I get I can find a gift for just about anyone from Fred & Friends. TEST ME.
(Note: I’m not sponsored by Fred & Friends in any way. I’ve just been a fan for eons.)
Fuzzy Face Picture Frame ($18) – Did you love Wooly Willy as a kid? This is a fantastic grown up alternative. You can doodle facial hair on any photo you want, whether it’s your partner, your dog or your boss.
Dinner Winner Kids’ Dinner Tray ($20) – I saw this and immediately screamed “GENIUS!” Anyone who’s tried to feed a picky kid knows the struggle. “Just one more bite,” you beg. Well why not gamify that shit?
LIT Candles ($6) – Doobie doobie doo. Make your celebrations, like, totally chill. I just feel like lighting these candles would be a hilarious moment for anyone who is “cool”.
GAME ON! Salt and Pepper Shakers ($15) – It’s a scientific fact that air hockey is the best game in existence. Up your game when playing with your food with these adorable spice shakers. They have felt pads on the bottom to make it easier to use on the dining room table.
Sharp Act Knife Sharpener ($12) – I call this aesthetic “adorably ghoulish”. Just like the old magic act of sawing a lady in half, you can slice and dice her without worrying about actually hurting her… probably. Either way, this is a cool item for the kitchen of your favourite magician or neighborhood black heart.
Traveling Sideshow Bibs ($12) – I can imagine gifting this to a family that’s involved with the circus or a sideshow. Aside from making for some incredibly cute Facebook pictures, these also have a really cool look that’s going to make them a great
Nibbled Cheese Board ($30) – Aside from being absolutely adorable, the mouse is also a cheese knife. It doesn’t get much cuter than that.
