Raise your hand if you are always scrambling at the last minute for the perfect gift! I mean, I always have great intentions and add “buy said gift” to my to do list, but for some reason it always ends up at the bottom and then I’m scratching my head for where to look just days before I need it! Sound familiar?!
Well, today I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite unique and personalized gifts from Uncommon Goods, specifically with wedding and anniversary gifts on my mind! We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary at the end of July and I was seriously eyeing some of these pieces and thinking how awesome it would have been to receive as wedding gifts or ideas for what to buy “each other” for our next anniversary. Does anyone else do that?!
Uncommon Goods is literally a one-stop-shop for all occasions, but my picks today all come from their Birthday Gifts, Personalized Gifts or Personalized Wedding Gifts lines. Come to think of it, we still have a bit of wedding season coming up ahead. It seems like each year, the season trickles out a little further into the fall for us, which means I can order some of these finds ASAP – Yay!
Here are a few items that caught my eye:
T and I actually gifted this to both of our parents on our wedding day with the idea that they would fill out the book, section-by-section, documenting various life events and special memories and then have it to pass on to our children and on down the line. I think after 5 years I should see how they’re coming with it!
Isn’t this the cutest? I photographed the intersection street signs of our old house and hung it here, but how cool to be able to personalize it for a couple!
Wouldn’t it be cute to display in the kitchen on a stand or even hung on the wall?
This would make a fabulous gift for any wine lover, but the personalization makes it super cute for a couple on their wedding day, when they are newlyweds and have high hopes of making wine together someday. They also sell a personalized whiskey barrel. Super cool.
Another cool piece of art for a newly married couple to hang in their home. A personalized piece of art really makes a statement in a gallery wall full of photographs.
These personalized cocktail glasses would make for a great date night in or to serve drinks to friends and family while entertaining in the couples’ first home perhaps!
A keepsake journal that you can add a photo and record how you celebrate each anniversary – favorite things, gifts, what you ate, etc. The journal allows you to add details from 1st through 60th anniversaries. There’s also an envelope page for each year to hold keepsakes and momentos.
Need I say more? I adore a throw pillow! These bright colored “state” pillows would make the perfect gift for a couple of newlyweds! These pillows also come in select cities and colleges. The perfect “pop” on a sofa or bed!
A cool twist on a photograph or painting of a city skyline! Each piece is sanded and stained by hand and there 50+ cities to choose from.
I love this idea because it’s so cute AND practical. Wouldn’t this make a great housewarming gift as well?!
Not only does Uncommon Goods offer hundreds of so many wonderfully unique gift ideas, but they have focused their efforts on sustainability from the beginning in 1999. They value and feature handmade, organic and recycled products and are proud to stand behind a philanthropic mission they created in 2001 called the Better To Give program, where $1 is donated at the checkout of every purchase to the charity of the buyer’s choice. Uncommon Goods has donated over $1 million to date.
Not only do I shop at Uncommon Goods for wedding and anniversaries (housewarming, birthday, every-other-holiday!), but Father’s Day is another occasion I especially love shopping perusing Uncommon Goods offerings. I have found some manly gems for T in years past. Not only things he wouldn’t think to buy for himself, but things you don’t see on every shelf in every other store in town! Next time you are wracking your brain for the perfect gift, pop on over to Uncommon Goods and find it there, as well as a few “gifts” for yourself. It’s easy to get distracted and forget “who” you’re shopping for. I speak from personal experience!
You guys, the biggest’s big boy room is in the beginning stages and my plan is coming together. My design board for this space is up next later this week!
While it worked in his nursery, moving into the new house with all of this decor…
Be on the lookout to see what pieces I’m planning to incorporate into his new room. Have a great day and thanks for reading!
