Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffer Ideas from UncommonGoods {$50 Gift Certificate Giveaway}

UncommonGoods logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, NativeHalo!}

As much as I look forward to the holidays and do really enjoy gift-giving, it's the gift-purchasing that always gets me.

Or, more accurately, the gift-purchasing ideas.

Wouldn't life be much easier if every single person had a continuous gift registry? Somewhere where you could go to find out exactly what they want or need? Between finding something for family and friends, coming up with options for the kids' teachers, searching for stocking stuffer ideas (look at these!), so that they actually get filled... I just wish there was a standard list or site to go to in order to find just the perfect gift for each and every person for all occasions. Is that too much to ask?

Fortunately, there's a place that ignores the standard same old, same old that you'll find elsewhere and instead brings together a collection of unique and creative gifts that are sure to be perfect under the tree for nearly everyone on your list: UncommonGoods.com.

UncommonGoodsThe innovative and wide-ranging collection of items for adults, kids, home, office, and more found at UncommonGoods are from all ends of the spectrum. From wedding gifts to jewelry to handmade goods, the hardest part about shopping there is finding a way to not spend an entire day browsing... and then actually deciding between all of the options available.

Looking for great stocking stuffers for men? UncommonGoods has a variety here that are sure to make the men on your list smile. Maybe two pairs of humorous Men's Shoe Socks so that even when he's kicking back on the couch he can still be stylish...

men's funny socks...or a fully stocked, just-in-case Survival Kit for all the times your outdoorsman heads out to enjoy nature and could really use to have the essentials with him.

outdoor kitBut UncommonGoods.com hasn't forgotten about the stocking stuffers for women, found here, that she's sure to love as well. How about a Shower Squid to hold all of her shampoos, conditioners, body washes and more?

world traveling mapWhen it comes to gift-giving or just shopping for something unique, UncommonGoods makes it simple and fun. Their jewelry, tableware, accessories, home products, gadgets and items for adults and kids are sure to impress for your next event or occasion. With so many handmade or recycled products to choose from as well, you're sure to find something completely different from the norm but also good for the earth!

From their commitment to the environment to their affordable prices to their helpful customer service, UncommonGoods.com is the place to go for something unique and quirky that your recipient is sure to enjoy. Instead of wrapping up the same old gift card or plain box of stationary this holiday season, I'm looking forward to browsing through the huge selection of items offered to find just the one that will add that special touch.

And, thanks to the generosity of UncommonGoods, one person will be able to help their family and friends enjoy the holidays a little more as well, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift certificate to UncommonGoods.com!
