The holidays are JUST around the corner. Just FORTY days away! Can you even believe it??
Aside from needing to decorate my house, finish my Christmas shopping, and ship presents… it’s also that time of year when I start digging around to find out what friends and family want for Christmas. I’ve done better this year than in most, but I still have a few names on my gift list that I’m struggling to buy for.
I first heard about Uncommon Goods from my friend Jen years ago… when we were still roommates. Jen used to get their catalogs, and we’d always talk about all the things we wanted. Since their gifts are unique and often handmade, it was like nothing we had seen in stores… and always on our wish list! When Uncommon Goods reached out to have me review their holiday wish book, I couldn’t resist previewing a few items… and giving you guys my picks for some of those hard-to-buy for friends and family members.
The site truly has the cutest gifts… and something for everyone. Not only do they have cute personalized items and gifts to hang by the chimney with care, but they also have the best ideas for under the tree!
Now, truth be told, I debated sharing presents I’d purchased for friends and family… but many of them read NTTC and it would spoil the surprise. So, if you think these gifts are for you, friends, they’re not! I’ve got other ideas for you… Just you wait!
For Your Favorite Knitter
As a yarn hoarder and wooly accessory creator, finding the perfect gift for a knitter was a lot of fun! I choose this gorgeous yarn holder as the perfect pick! Click here for all the details.
No one likes when your yarn rolls around the room as it unravels, and this bowl makes sure that doesn’t happen! With the hand crafted detail, the yarn feeds perfectly to create whatever you’re making! LOVE THIS!
For Your Favorite Wine Connoisseur
How cute is this dish towel? It’s full of fun facts about everyone’s favorite grape-based beverage. Click here for all the details.
Truth be told, I have a thing for cute tea towels, so this towel was not only fun to add to my collection, but also educational! It even has a list of which wine glass you should use for which kind of wine!
For Your Earthy, Yoga Loving Friend
Just so you know, I’m this friend. I love this gift as a pampering potion that had healing qualities! Click here for the details.
I just love the idea of using deliciously scented salts to heal my body and balance my chakras. Next time I feel unbalanced, I know what I’m reaching for… and note that the inside has guidance on how to use them! Scents like lavender, rosemary, and eucalyptus… all ready to heal you!
For Your Friend Who Fancies Cheese
Remember that I mentioned that this site has unique gifts? Well, check out this one…
How does this thing work? Per the website, “Simply place the white, earthenware keeper along with any hard or soft cheese in an airtight container (including plastic wrap). The food-safe clay has been fired at low temperatures, which gives it the ability to regulate the moisture around it, keeping your Romano from drying out or your Cheddar from getting mushy.” I can’t wait to try this out!
This box of goodies was so fun to review, and there are so many other fun gifts you should check out. I may have also picked up a few gifts for friends to enjoy too… but they’ll have to wait for Christmas before I reveal what they’re getting.
Who’s the hardest person to buy for on your holiday gift list?
