When it comes to gift giving, I personally love to shop for unique, handcrafted, quirky gifts truly tailored to the recipient. But let’s face it: gift giving does take a lot of thought and time, if one is to do it right. And while I may try to be as thoughtful as possible, I don’t necessarily have all the time it takes to search the universe for the perfect gift.
Enter Uncommon Goods. I truly love their products, and their holiday gift guide is set up in a way that makes it so easy for busy moms like you and me. I was delighted to partner with them to pour over their awesome selection of gifts and, in turn, bring you some hand-picked items that I personally believe you lovely readers might enjoy.
When in Portland… gift as Portlanders do. These are some fun gift ideas for the cool hipster in your life. You know you will be the coolest friend/aunt/coworker/boss EVAH if you gift Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn. Note: no unicorns were harmed in the making of this gift.
I have a few vinyl-loving friends who would love the Record Bowls. And who among us doesn’t have a math geek buddy who would love the Math Glasses?
Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn $38
Record Bowls $25
Math Glasses – set of 4 $38
There are those cheesy personalized gifts, and then there are cool, meaningful personalized gifts that loved ones will be more likely to keep for a lifetime. On UncommonGoods.com, I found some high quality, lovely personalized gifts that would make wonderful holiday presents for your special someone.
And if you happen to interpret “special someone” as meaning, ahem, moi… well, then, I would just love you forever. For any of these items. Really. I don’t like cheesy personalized gifts but I love these three!
Personalized Anniversary Wine Box $130 – $180
Personalized Tree Trunk Glassware $85
Personalized Love Birch Cuff $100
For DIY lovers, Uncommon Goods has a good selection of DIY kits. I love the first one because it combines a love of DIY with a love of cheese (and really, who doesn’t love cheese?). The custom sneaker kit is for the super cool DIYer in your life, and the carve-a-stamp kit is a great gift for the scrapbooker/paper fiend/stamp-a-holic in your life.
Artisanal Cheesemaking Kit $114.95
Sneaker Customization Kit $45
Carve-a-Stamp Kit $28
All of the items featured here, along with hundreds more awesome gift ideas (for loved ones — and for YOU!) can be found on the Uncommon Goods Holiday Gifts section.
