I love finding the perfect gift. Not just something someone wants or needs, but something really special and surprising. I love how the right gift expresses so much: my understanding of who they are, what they care about, what they find interesting or inspiring or comforting or funny, and how much I listen and see and care. Gifts are kind of a big deal in my book, and I really do my darndest to hunt down the magical and unexpected.
I’m excited to partner with UncommonGoods today to share some of my most FAVORITE finds from their impeccably curated selection of awesome, unexpected gifts. If you haven’t heard of UncommonGoods, let me introduce you. It’s an amazing shop where you will find a wide variety of truly “uncommon goods.” Or as they describe it, “designs that serve a purpose, solve a problem, stun us with their beauty, or make us wonder why no one thought of it before.”
But UncommonGoods is more than just your average online retailer. They are dedicated to sustainability in every decision they make, striving to make their company more and more environmentally-friendly and socially responsible as they grow. At the end of your purchase, their Better to Give program allows you to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation from UncommonGoods. All this plus their products are just plain cool.

2.Coffee Cold Brew Set – I’ve tried cold brewing on my own a few times, and I have not loved the results. This cold brew set looks like the perfect solution in a lovely package.
3.Constellation Mug – This speaks to the nerd, dreamer, and the coffee lover alike. Watch the constellations appear as you pour yourself a hot cup of happy juice.

5.Couch Arm Table – You NEVER want your coffee out of arms reach. This little table is the perfect accompaniment to an after dinner cup in your favorite chair.
7.Wine Cork Candle Set of 12 – Use those empty bottles as candle holders with these cork candles. I love the way the wax drips down the side in such a dramatic, antique style.
8.Twist Decanter – This is just gorgeous. An impressive piece for any hostess to bring out when serving guests.
9.Wine Jelly Set of 2 – Who says wine is just for drinking? Why not jazz up that PB & J with some wine jelly. Just don’t mix it up with the kids’ lunches.
10.Wine Soaps Set of 4 – And why not bring your love of wine into the bath with you! These soaps are a luxuriously unique way to pamper the wine lover in your life.
11.Tilted Wine Decanter with Ice Pocket – I love the shape and style of this piece so much, and it’s sure to provide a perfectly chilled and decanted glass of your favorite white.

14.Library Card Tote – Every book lover needs a tote bag worthy of our used bookstore and library sale finds. This library card tote bag brings back memories of my childhood visits to the local library, and just begs to be filled with well-loved paperbacks.
15.Literary Candles – Half of the enjoyment of a good book is setting the mood. A comfortable chair, warm cup of coffee or tea, a cozy blanket, and a candle evoking the essence of your favorite literary locations.
16.Well-Read Woman: Reader’s Journal – Make sure to keep track of your favorite reads and recommendations in this beautiful reader’s journal. You’ll be the envy of all your fellow bookworms.
17.Emily Dickinson Framed Original Watercolor (there’s also a Jane Austen Original Watercolor that absolutely LOVE!) I really can’t decide which of these watercolors I love best. I may just need to collect them all.
18.“Love Is” Pillow – I love decorating my home with words and excerpts. This pillow prominently displays 1 Corinthians 13, the “Love Is” passage. A perfect addition to any avid readers favorite chair.
19.Smartphone Charging Reversible Tote – I don’t know about you, but these days I do a lot of my reading on my phone. Never find yourself low on battery with this super chic tote. You can discretely charge your phone inside your purse, and have it fully charge for your those stolen moments of reading in the line at Starbucks or on the sidelines at soccer practice.
Ladies Who Laugh Often
20.Shakespearean Insults Chart – This chart is amazing. Highlighting some of the Bard’s most beloved insults and their uses, you’ll be fluent in Elizabethan curses in no time.
21.The Bathroom Guestbook (also, the Couch Guestbook) – If I visited someone’s home and they had a guest book in their bathroom, I’d know that I was in the right place. Quirky and hilarious, this is an awesome gift for the hostess with a sense of humor.
22.Slang Flash Cards – After having kids, I’m not so up to date on what these kids are saying nowadays. Slang Flash Cards are just the thing for moms who want to study up in order to embarrass their children with a properly placed slang term of the times.
23.Notes to Self Journal – This is a see-it-to-believe-it kind of thing. This journal is snarky and sassy and just plain fun. An awesome gift for the woman in your life brimming with sarcasm.
