Let's be honest—most humidifiers are rather plain looking. What if you want something that's more of a conversation starter? Or a cute accessory for a nursery? We tried out several so-called cute humidifiers to see which worked best in the real world.

FYI: We've been reviewing and rating products for the home and families since 1994. We don't take money or freebies from the brands we review. Our work is 100% reader-supported!

• Super quiet.

• Easy to assemble.

• Easy to use.

Best For Kids Rooms: Double Spray UFO Cute Mini Humidifier

There are cute humidifiers and then are super cute ones—this one falls into the latter. This UFO-themed humidifier actually puts out a good amount of mist, thanks to its dual nozzle configuration. And yes, the night light feature and polar bear in pilot helmet and goggles is adorable.

What We Liked

• 400 ml. tank lasts for about six hours in continuous mode.

• Good mist output.

• Top fill reservoir.

• Includes two spare wicks.

• Auto shut-off.

What Needs Work

• Doesn’t last the entire night without refilling.

• Night light is only one color. We realize that is a minor complaint, but other cute humidifiers offer more color options.

Best For Essential Oils

Compact size perfect for office desk
While the landscape/terrarium design of this humidifier is the star feature here, we like that you can also use it with essential oils. So adorable! Caveat: the controls can be a bit confusing.
$19.99

Best For Essential Oils: GENNISSY 180ML USB Cute Mini Landscape Air Humidifier

Most cute humidifiers can’t diffuse essential oils. This one by GENNISSY does—and it worked well in our tests.

What We Liked

• Adorable “landscape” design with bunny.

• Easy to use.

• Small and compact—fits on a desk or bedside table.

• Auto shut-off.

• Affordable.

What Needs Work

• Small tank (180 ml.) requires frequent refilling. This probably isn’t an issue in an office, but it is not as ideal for overnight use.
