But in the meantime, I have been getting a jump on our Christmas shopping and making lists of gift ideas.
I was recently contacted by Uncommon Goods for a collaboration that I couldn't pass up. They have so many unique gift ideas. They have unique jewelry, designer decor, kitchen and bar goods and handcrafted gifts. I am even eyeing a few things that I would love to receive under the tree. They have something for everyone. Even for the babies in your life.
Whether you are shopping for your wife, girlfriend, mom, sister or grandmother, they have you covered.
I have picked out a few items that I have in mind for the women in my life. I also wouldn't mind receiving any of these either.
The bracelet has the stone made from sand. Either sand that you choose from their list of beaches in Christensen's Sand Bank or you can send in your own sand. So if you went on a vacation to Costa Rica and kept sand from your trip, this is the perfect time to transform it into a keepsake.
The coasters are made from agate from Brazil and they are beautiful.
The wine glasses remind me of some we got when we were in Mexico. They are thick and have the beautiful ombre coloring.
I always have a harder time shopping for the men in my life because my father and father-in-law have everything they want or they go out and buy it. And my husband is a tricky one to shop for. But I have went through Uncommon Goods and found some items I know they will like and the man in your life will too.
The city map glass is perfect for the traveler. When I saw that they had the New York city map, I knew this would be perfect for my husband. We love traveling and NY is one of our favorite places to visit. The map is pretty amazing and a fun way to show off your city love.
The rain gauge is for someone who loves following the weather and tracking the snow and rain. We got my father-in-law a weather gauge a few years back and this would be perfect to accompany it. You can see how much it rains during any storm. Plus it is super easy to use and clean.
The yard dice are fun for parties. We plan to have a lot more parties at our house since we remodeled our kitchen. Yard dice allow you to play drinking games and just games for fun. It is the perfect item to add to your growing list of yard games.
I have an ever growing list of items for my girls and for my nephew. As my girls get older, shopping for them gets even better.
The Sleeper Hero gift is pretty cool. You can read the book to them before bedtime and then the doll signals when it is time to sleep and when it is time to get up. My girls are still a bit young for the light part as they may not understand it, but it will become very useful in the coming months.
The personalized book is just fun. Growing up, I always wanted things personalized and I think having books personalized to the girls with their names will make it even more fun to read.
The taco booties are just way too cute. I plan on getting my nephew either these or the hotdog booties. I can't wait to see him in these.
FOR THE HOME
These are gifts you can give a friend for their housewarming, to a family member who you aren't sure what to get but want to impress or for a co-worker or boss. These are items that anyone would want to receive.
This candle is pretty cool. It allows just a bit of wax to burn at a time. This allows you to get the most out of the candle. A three inch piece will burn for an hour. The design is unique and even has refills.
This cutting board is beautiful. I love serving cheese, crackers and meats together and this just add the nice touch to it.
So whether you are shopping for yourself, your spouse, your partner, your children or a friend, Uncommon Goods has something for everyone.
What is on your Christmas list?
