Between weddings, showers, graduations and more, this time of year is huge for parties and gift giving. It can be tough to find the perfect gift, but I always stick with personalized items. They can take a bit of extra time to find and customize, but there’s nothing better than seeing someone’s face when they open their present and know you took the time, and more importantly, the thought to gift them a thoughtful present.
A site I’ve recently come to love is Uncommon Goods. I previously mentioned them in my Home Decor Sites You Need to Know, but they’re also great for one-of-a-kind presents.
From the quirky to the sentimental, even the most difficult to shop for person will adore these gifts.
Perfect for Father’s Day, I absolutely love this personalized whiskey barrel. Made of premium white oak, they last up to 10 years.
For newlyweds or a couple decorating a new home, the Intersection of Love print is a cutesy option. Available framed or unframed, the print can be customized to include a couple’s names or special dates.
When friends move away from home, I like to give them a little something that reminds them of where they came from. Usually it’s a gift basked of their favorite local magazines, food that’s unique to a region, etc., but a state pillow is another option. The handmade pillows come with a heart stitched over your city of choice.
Personalized jewelry is always another great choice. From birthstones to initials to longitude and latitude etchings, it doesn’t get any more individualized than this.
If you’re still stumped on a gift option, Uncommon Goods has selections broken down in categories, including gifts for women, men, kids, people with pets, etc.
Also, Uncommon Goods has a fun Instagram challenge where you can win a $100 gift card. The current theme is Parents, so start uploading those pics and tagging #UGInstaFun.
