Searching for Unique Holiday Gifts? (PLUS a Giveaway)


It's the holiday season, and everywhere you turn, someone is trying to tell you what you should buy.  Gift Lists, Must-Haves, etc. are around every corner.  But if you're like me, you want something . . .well. . .different.

Know a guitar player? How about this Guitar Pick Punch?


Is your BFF the consummate entertainer? Give her these cheeseboards and slicers - they are pretty AND functional!

How about that teen that just got her license . . . a Drivers License Kit just for her!

I have been a fan of Uncommon Goods for years.  I have always loved getting their catalog and pouring over the items they carried.  It's definitely my go-to place for unique Christmas gift ideas. Now, I can go to their website, read their blog and peruse their catalog on my Google Catalog App.

But no matter how I search, I can be sure that I will find something unique and just a little bit different, that suits my receiver's personality to a Tee. And they aren't just for Christmas! In fact, they are a great spot for cool gift ideas for ANY occasion! Forget that bottle of wine or flowers.

And because I am such a fan, I get to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a $50 gift certificate to use at Uncommon Goods. (US Residents only) Just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter and good luck!

  2. Most people would probably consider the most unusual to be the wine filter my hubby got me for Christmas for my winemaking. :) I LOVE Uncommon Goods! :)

  12. I think maybe soap that looks like diced carrots and peas. The gift giver did not know that my mother used to say that we'd get peas and carrots for Christmas (instead of coal) if we weren't good.

  13. I don't know if it's unusual but my friend gave me an awesome notepad at work to fill in things about people and leave it for them. Things like I hate that you ignore the elephant in the room OR I love that you wear deodorant

  14. Hmm... Most unique gift, I'd have to say a snuggie... I think they were re-gifted a lot when they first came out!
