The Sarut Group

Talk about attention to detail! Bumping up the total kitcsch factor today, we have crazy kooky gifts from The Sarut (pronounced Sa-roo) Group based in Brooklyn, New York. Alan Ceppos and Frederic Rambaud, the principals of The Sarut Group, hand pick numerous distinct collections designed to "inspire, educate and entertain".

Their contemporary-designed gift items and decorative accessories are as fun as they are functional and, in a world of plain red dust pans and ordinary metal cheese graters, why not take simple things and transform them into something kitcschy chic. Fun! [shown above: veggie peelers, graters, dust bins + elephant funnels!]

lighting, iPod skins, mouse pads, doggy cake servers, girly graters + magnetic birdies!
