Sometimes the most genius inventions also tend to be the most eyebrow-raising and giggle-inducing — things that were born to go viral on social media. In fact, those brilliant "As seen on TV" products were HSN’s bread and butter long before social media even existed.

Nowadays, HSN has evolved into a bonafide online superstore. But if you sift through all the brand-name home and fashion finds, you’ll still find plenty of quirky game-changers, from a keychain that doubles as a personal bodyguard, to a battery-operated shower brush that gives you a spa makeover, to an adorable doggie backpack that doubles as a harness for a more stylish walking outfit.

We rounded up 12 of the weirdest, most wonderful HSN products to help you start 2022 off right. Each is $30 or less, so you won't break the bank. Also economical: You can pay in (interest-free!) installments with "Flex Pays" on every one of these items. Get shopping!
