I love giving gifts. I always have. Finding the perfect gift for people is one of my favorite feelings. One site I almost ALWAYS look to for really unique gift ideas is Uncommon Goods. I’ve loved shopping here since their traditional catalog days (you can still get one if you love to shop on paper) so when they asked if I wanted to partner with them it was an easy choice!

They’ve done an amazing job curating an amazing selection of handmade, recycled and organic products that are unique and products that can be personalized. There is WAY too much to even touch on all the fun products, but I love searching through their site. It has long been my #1 choice for the perfect gift.

If you have someone who loves trying new drinks or cocktails they have this awesome USA Beer Cap Map, Himalayan Salt Tequila glasses (which I can’t wait to try out myself) or this gorgeous city map glass.


For the women who love crafts, scrapbooking or travel (like me) they have a gorgeous custom map bracelet, a DIY Cinema Lightbox (that I just added to my collection, yay!), this smartphone instant lab set that I’ve been eyeing or this Mother & Daughter Letter Book Set.


For new moms I love this Kid Quotes Memory Book, the Tortilla Baby (a fave) and this GORGEOUS personalized photo book to remind mom to get those photos printed out and it’s not super intimidating either.


You can check out the profiles of the makers of all the handmade items which I love and they’re founding members of B Corporation, an organization created to help customers understand the social and environmental impact of their purchases so if you’re purchasing gifts for socially conscious friends or family this is the perfect choice! Their personalized options also make it easy to buy for someone who has everything already – you can see more personalized options here!

Have you shopped at Uncommon Goods before? Definitely check them out first next time you’re looking for a gift. I bet they’ll have just the unique gift you’re looking for!
