You’ve probably noticed that I love me some gift guides. You’ve also probably noticed that I happen to find some super-awesome stuff all over the internet. Wanna know a little secret about my gift-shopping prowess? I generally head to UncommonGoods the moment I start my “awesome gifts on the internet” search. UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that constantly features unique and ethical gifts, while supporting independent artists and designers — in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand!

This year, just in time to get your holiday shop on, UncommonGoods has joined forces with me as one of our sponsors! So I get to gush about some of the unique gifts that could just about melt your face with all the awesome…

Personalized gifts

personlized cutting board

Say hello to the cutting board I almost purchased FOR MYSELF. Yes, I’m a dork. But I started a new Instagram account for my foodstagramming, and I wanted to commemorate it with a cutting board that said “Treats&Geeks.” Or maybe you want to get a cutting board for your newlywed friends “Kai&Marischa,” or maybe you want a cutting board that says something dorky like “letscook” (any Breaking Bad fans here?).

Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yes, my point is that, whether it’s kitchen stuff, dog stuff, or jewelry, Uncommon Goods has a ton of personalized gift options to wet your palate.

From vintage camera pillows to cat candles, UncommonGoods lives up to it’s name when it comes to home decor! Just peruse their home and garden section and try not to buy too much for yourself whilst you shop for others. 😉

“Christmas gifts for men”

Although UncommonGoods calls this their “Christmas gifts for men” section (and I DID have to resist buying my boyfriend hmmmmm ALL of the baseball stuff) this section is full of the coolest stuff for everyone! Musicians, outdoorsy types, chefs, and people who love to drink will be in heaven over here.

“Christmas gifts for women”

As always, thanks to UncommonGoods for being an Offbeat Home & Life sponsor, and helping to keep our site happy and full of awesome!
