37 Awesome Things You Never Knew You Needed For Your Home

Who *wouldn't* want a bookcase shaped like a tree or a T. rex head to hang on their wall?

1. A poster covered with classic books that you can "scratch off" (like a scratch ticket) as you read them.

2. A lamp that looks like a jellyfish floating on your wall.

It lights up in over 6 million colors. Yes. Six million.

Get it from Think Geek for $99.

3. Wall decor for anyone who has practically every word of Jurassic Park memorized.

4. Or a dinosaur with an appetite for linguine.

5. A drinking challenge board game you'll end up using at all your house parties.

6. A little device you can use to scan the barcodes of running-on-empty items in your kitchen (to create a grocery list).

You can also add to your list with your voice (the device — Hiku — has a microphone) or via an app. Then, when it's time to go shopping, just open up the app on your phone to peruse your list.

Get one from Amazon for $59.

7. A lamp where the *shade* is actually the *light* (a 3D LED one, to be specific).

8. A bottle you can easily put a ship (or anything else) into.

...via a lid in the bottom.

Get it from Animi Causa for $19.99.

9. A jewelry organizer (and mirror! and makeup holder!) that hangs right over the top of a door.

10. Trompe-l'oeil wallpaper you can paint to match your decorating scheme.

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $30 (brick) or $30 (pattern).
