I'm drawn to unique kitchen gadgets because they're fun to look at. Whether it's tiny birds that cling to the rim of your wine glass or mugs that resemble a prickly cactus when you stack them on top of each other, there's nothing sweeter than the perfect blend of design and function.

If you're looking to add a touch of magic to your life, look no further. I recently explored the Internet for adorable and easy to use kitchen gadgets and here's what I found:

1. You'll never lose your wine glass again thanks to these bird markers.

If you own a gazillion coffee mugs like me, they're probably overflowing inside your kitchen cabinet. These cactus plant mugs are easy to store because you can stack them on top of each other. Ah. Wide, open spaces.

3. This platypus will steep your tea.

You'll get a more flavorful cup of tea with loose tea, but the one drawback is that it's messy. This platypus tea infuser is adorable and super easy to clean. Just open the infuser and rinse out the tea leaves with water.

4. You can store little things inside these macaron shaped pill boxes.

I don't cook often, but when I do, I tend to wander away from the kitchen and forget about my food. These delightful kitchen timers are difficult to ignore or dismiss, which may help a serial roamer like me.

This product really brings me back to my childhood. I like Lego blocks and brownies, so why not combine the two? You'll definitely want to play with your food.

10. These brush scrubbers sure do look like shark fins.

I dislike touching sponges and Brillo pads because the texture bothers me. This product is cool because all you have to do is pinch the colorful shark fin and clean away. Cue the Jaws theme music.

11. You won't ever have to touch hot handles again thanks to these silicone butterflies.
