Find Fantastic Gift Ideas at UncommonGoods

Disclosure: I received compensation of product through a partnership with Uncommon Goods. The amazeballs gift selections and opinions are my own.

My husband is the most difficult person to shop for. First off, if he wants something, he just buys it. So he pretty much has a non-existing wish list, because if he wishes for it, he just purchases whatever he wishes for.

A Jack-of-all-trades sort of guy, he has so many interests and hubbies; you would think gift ideas would come easy. However, when it comes to gift giving, I lack the creative juices to think outside the gift box.  But as I previously mentioned, he doesn’t want or have a need for anything.

That’s why Uncommon Goods is such a saving grace for me. I can click at the “men” tab at top of the homepage and click under interests. For my guitar playing, music loving cyclist, handy dandy DIY Iron Chef Allan, I can sort by categories such as “cooking”, “grilling, “beer or “biking”. With one simple sort, Uncommon Goods offers unique gift ideas and stocking stuffer suggestions that are perfect and priceless for your husband.

Uncommongoods makes hunting for the right Christmas gift for that special person in your life simple and easy to find the right gift with within your budget. Either head straight to the Christmas Gift Ideas page here or click on the “gifts” on the UncommonGoods homepage.

More than a fantastic gift giving guide, UncommonGoods also spotlights the artists and designers behind each product. It’s not just overstock internet storefront; Uncommongoods is like small town co-op shop featuring local artists and designers from all around the country.

In fact, UncommonGoods splotlights artists from both the U.S. and around the world. More than half of the items sold (close to 70%) are made in the USA and a large number of items are produced overseas to support communities in developing countries.

But UncommonGoods is more than an online retailer that features artists. Through its B Corporation standing, UncommonGoods uses its power of business to solve social and environmental problems through its a rigorous standard on a wide range of issues, including wage levels, environmental impact and giving back to our community.

Whether it’s a hometown USA artist or an artist overseas, I love reading each artist’s story and the inspiration behind each item, such as the Bike Chain Bowl. When I considered this whimsical and upcycled bike chain bowl as a gift for my husband, I learned Graham Bergh’s passion for reviving and refashioning spent bike gear. It makes me appreciate the item more and I know Allan will love the sentiment and story too.

There were so many wonderful ideas for Allan, but I narrowed my choices down to two: the Agate guitar picks….

…and the Aerating Wine Glass Set. As I novice wine connoisseur, I thought he would appreciate the aide in helping a great glass of wine breathe.

While perusing for gifts for Allan, I found some wonderfully unique gifts for my whole family! And once again, UncommonGoods made it so simple to find a gift for each one of my kids by being able to shop for kids by age and gender, such as teen gifts for girls. Because let’s face it; teens are never easy to shop for!

For my 15 year old, I found a Make Your Nail Polish Kit

…and a card game called Game Of Phones. Both were under $50 each.

For 11 year old girl, I bought her the Body Doodle Game because she is into that using her hand like a notepad stage.

For my little car obsessed five-year-old boy, I combed through the Gifts for Boys and thought a he would enjoy a personalized Little Speedster Book. I also purchased him the Cardboard Tool Kit since he loves building creations out of discarded cardboard boxes. I mean, who doesn’t really?

And since I was feeling generous in my gift giving spirit, I chose a few items for my sister, such as the Under The Influence Wine Glass Set….

…and the wine pearls to help cool her white wine without an ice cube watering down her wine.

But of course, I purchased all these items for my family and never picked something for myself.  If I could add one UncommonGoods gift to my wish list, it would be this incredible Smartphone Charging Reversible Tote – in black and tan, please, because I have been such a good blogger this year, Santa.
