Uncommon Gift Ideas

I didn't say it yesterday so let me just say it today... HOW IS IT DECEMBER?! 2016 has been the fastest year of my life by far and Christmas is seriously sneaking up on me. Jared and I have actually done a good amount of our shopping already but there are still a few tough-to-buy-for people on our list. Uncommon Goods is one of my favorite places to shop so I was pretty pumped when they asked me to collaborate with them today and talk about some of my favorite Christmas gift ideas this year.

Some of the guys in my family are the absolute toughest ones to buy for, but I can always find something unique and fun for them from Uncommon Goods- they have a great selection of items for men. My brother-in-law is super into hot sauces and loves trying different ones everywhere he goes- so we are definitely getting him this "make your own hot sauce kit" How fun is this!?

It's a running joke that we get both of our dads something from UG every single year- but it's the truth! They just have so many dad-ish gifts that I swear there is something for everyone's pops. Both of our dads are sports fanatics so some of our top choices this year include some football-themed books and for Jared's dad who works in aviation- this flight tie. I mean, where else would you find a unique tie like this? I'm telling you, Uncommon Goods has the best stuff.

And of course there are tons of goodies for your mom, sister and bestie. But since most of those people read my blog I can't divulge too many things I'm loving on the site ;) However, this journal is a great gift idea for anyone and they have an awesome jewelry collection too. I've been wanting some piece of jewelry with T's initials or birthstone on it and there are some serious contenders from Uncommon Goods. And this necklace below might just be the cutest necklace of all time. An elephants with her little "peanuts" Yeah, I need it.

So hopefully I gave some of you a few new ideas for gifts- or at least somewhere new to look for gifts. Even if my picks aren't up your alley, I promise you can waste a lot of time on their site looking for stuff for your people and you WILL find a dozen things you want to buy! Something else that is pretty cool about Uncommon Goods is that they are all about protecting the environment and you can feel good knowing that you're buying from a company with high standards. About one-third of their products are made of recycled/upcycled materials too! Win, win!

There are so many great ideas that I might just need to start buying for MORE people this year so I have a reason to keep shopping ;) Happy Friday, and happy shopping everyone!

*I was compensated for writing/sharing this post, but I picked out all the awesome items to share and opinions are that of my own.


  1. I need to check out Uncommon Goods! I feel like my dad is always the hardest person to shop for, but I bet that I could find something for him on Uncommon Goods! I also think that I'd love that hot sauce kit for myself!

  2. Oh my goodness that elephant necklace is TOO CUTE! Ha! I love that!! What a fun site. I love random gifts that you know they won't get double of!!

  3. I've seen a lot of these Uncommon Goods posts around lately. I love looking through their magazines when they come to the house but I haven't bought anything from them so far

  4. Hot sauce kit is interesting...stay away from the make your own beer things. A big waste of money!
