Turns out I'm the guy who forgets to remove objectionable fridge magnets before Mom comes to visit. — John Fugelsang
Want some nice magnets you won't need to remove from the fridge when your Mom visits? Let's start out with the set above, from Katie of Kitschy Hippo. Katie's magnets are made from vintage ephemera, so they are one of a kind.
Ray Troll has a large selection of magnets with a fishing theme.
Snug, located in Hannover, Germany makes umbrella magnets from wood; you can also get matching raindrops. Snug also sells the umbrellas through Etsy. [via the Lolalina gift guide, in turn found via Jess Constable] Update on June 24, 2014: I'm not finding the umbrellas on the Snug Studio website or Etsy site, and I'm not finding the raindrops anywhere — so they may be discontinued products.
You can get magnets covered with handmade paper from Meg Bollinger of Calyrew.
And finally, for Facebook fans: Fridgebook magnets. They come with a dry erase pen for making wall posts, etc.
