As Christmas creeps up on us, the terrifying realisation that you need to find gifts for all of your family members sets in. It’s never too early to start preparing but sometimes you can really get stuck for ideas. I will be sharing some ideas with you in the hope that this gives you inspiration for finding gifts for your friends and family.
UncommonGoods is a place where you can find unique and unusual gifts for your loved ones. The reason that I am interested in this company is that they are working towards becoming more environmentally friendly, socially responsible and a rewarding place to work. This means that may contain recycled components and will not contain leather, feathers or fur in addition to creating a positive impact in the workplace. As a result, this will be a great choice if you are interested in ethical and cruelty-free products. One of my favourite things about UncommonGoods is that they started up a programme called “Better to Give”, which allows you to select a non-profit organisation to receive a $1 donation from them at the checkout. Since starting in 2001, this programme has raised over $1,000,000.
I’m not sure whether this is because I’m a woman or not but I always find it a lot easier buying for other women. Ellen Bartfield is selling a Birth Month Mini Dish and they are so adorable. Before purchasing, you can find out which birthstone you will need in addition to there being an image of the dishes in the various birthstones. The thing that I love about this item is that you can use it to add some colour to your room or you can use it to store jewellery. I have been looking for a cute dish like this for ages and know that I would definitely love to receive this.
The next item that I found was a journal that gives you prompts to record your life experiences, relationships and wisdom. I have kept a journal for as long as I can remember and I know so many others who do too. This journal is designed to be passed down to your children and grandchildren, making it a wonderful family keepsake. As well as looking back at your life, you can write about accomplishments that you would like to achieve. Other items that you can find include mugs, necklaces, bags, ornaments, scarves and even a personalised brass cuff cast from birch bark.
Check out more unique gifts aimed at women, there is plenty to look at and you can definitely something for everyone.
I often struggle a little bit more with choosing gifts for men, however having a website with tons of ideas is a great help. If there is a man in your life who is passionate about beer, this Beer Cap States display board may be a good choice. With this board, you can proudly display beer caps, making it a fun trophy and giving you an excuse to travel around various US states.
Another gift that I think is pretty cool is the Eye Glasses Holder. It is a hand-carved wooden figure to keep your glasses on. This would look great either in your bedroom or in your office. You will no longer have to search for your glasses as they will either be on your face or on the wooden figure. This product is also fairly small, meaning that you could take it with you when traveling. More gift choices include personalised family mugs, dog breed necktie, socks, hot sauce, and various works of art. Here are more gifts for Christmas that you can check out.
In addition to these gifts, there are plenty of choices for children. You can choose from personalised gifts, apparel, toys and games and arts and crafts. If you haven’t already, check out the UncommonGoods website for loads of great gift ideas because not only are there hundreds of fantastic options, they are an ethical and cruelty free company.
