Has anyone else noticed that stores seem to be stocking up on items featuring the human face? While by no means a new trend, it does feel like we're reaching a critical mass when everyone from Betty Lou Nichols to Jonathan Adler is adorning planters, pillows, and everything in between, with face designs.

When it comes to home accessories, there's a fine line between making a room work and being a little bit too close to Portlandia's "Put a Bird On It" sketch, so here are nine of our favorite face-friendly accessories to add a little human appeal to your home without feeling too watched.

1. Urban Outfitters Celfie Planter, $8

A tiny planter plus a tiny face somehow equals big style.

Just try not to say "boop-oop-a-doop" every time you blow out a candle using these Betty Boop-esqe holders.
