Gifts for Everyone! with UncommonGoods

November 26, 2013


oh how quickly time goes by. it's already the last week of november and thanksgiving is only a few days away – which means holiday shopping is in order. i think my two favorite kinds of gifts to receive are 1. things i wouldn't necessarily buy myself but would love to have and 2. really functional gifts (literally – i asked for glass tupperware one year and this toothpaste wringer is one of my favorite things). and for those two reason i love uncommongoods for gifting time. uncommon goods features unique quirky designs and handcrafted gifts for everyone.

for your hostess friends you can pick them up one of these cookie stamps or this fun footed bowl. for the techies in your life dress them up in this or send them a virtual message in a bottle. so many great things to choose from you can check out lots of fun options here and here. what do you have your eye on?
