Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I started *thinking* about all things festive just last week. So, if you are like me, you are probably looking for some inspiration.
We all want to give great gifts. Whether is is something someone has been longing for, or something they didn’t know they wanted, that feeling of satisfaction of knowing that you have chosen well is THE BEST.
Sometimes we need a little help finding those perfect, unique gifts.
Enter Uncommon Goods.
Uncommon Goods has some of the most original, most varied gifts for anyone on your list. From jewelry to gadgets, home decor, and food items, there are unique gifts for everyone.
Their mission is all about positivity. Uncommon Goods supports artists and small manufacturers in making their products more socially and environmentally responsible. And I love that they are committed to selling items that harm neither people or animals.
[Pssst! My fellow Canadians: Uncommon Goods ships to CANADA and you can view prices in both Canadian and US dollars, so no more pesky exchange calculations in your head while you shop!]
Shopping for teens is hard.
If, like me, you have a teen on your list, you might be looking for an interesting non-tech, non-video game gift. (You know, so they might actually look up and talk to you once in a while.) Uncommon Goods has great suggestions for those marvelous teens.
This Fitness Bottle with Phone Holding Sleeve ($13.98 USD) looks so useful. If there is one thing my judo kids always need, it is water bottles. And teen Alpha is never far from his phone. This handy satchel allows teens to carry it all in one hand. (BONUS: fewer things to carry means less likelihood of forgetting expensive devices at the gym or the dojo.)
These Magnetic Bike Lights ($36.00 USD) would be perfect for the cyclists in your life. The LEDs (a white one for the front, a red one for the back) snap on the bike frame with magnets to improve vision and visibility on the street or on the trails. We moms are all about safely, right?
What do you get for the person who has everything?
What about the one that says they don’t need anything? Uncommon Goods also has great gift suggestions for all.
I love this PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer ($49.99 USD). It’s normal to get a bit freaked out when I think about how dirty my family’s phones are, especially during cold and flu season, right? I know this would get used a lot. And since it only takes a few minutes, we won’t be out touch with the outside world for long.
Not only this Eye Glasses Holder ($18.00 USD) perfect for people who are always misplacing their glasses, it is also a fun conversation piece. (I should get this for my husband. Sorry, David; you know it’s true.)
Confession: I struggle with stocking stuffers.
I want to find something cool and different, but often feel underwhelmed with my choices. Uncommon Goods has great ideas for the “stuff” for those stockings. Who doesn’t need a chuckle every now and then? This Emergency Clown Nose ($5.00 USD) would get a lot of use in my family. Can you just imagine the photo ops?
This Solar Photography Kit ($14.95 USD) would make a special little gift for the creative person on your list. It’s a fun introduction to print making that I think budding artists and photographers would likely find fascinating.
When you order your gifts from Uncommon Goods, look out for the Better To Give program at the checkout. It allows you to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation. Since 2001, Uncommon Goods has donated over $1,000,000 thanks to this program.
Whether you are looking for unique gifts for a family member, friend, or coworker, you are bound to find something, well, UNCOMMON at Uncommon Goods.
