Have you ever bought a gift for someone, but ended up keeping it for yourself? I’ve done it a couple times, which is why I usually don’t buy gifts until the last minute. That eliminates the temptation to keep something because I know I’ll have time to go shopping for another gift. Am I the only one who does this?
Generally I like to give unique or handmade gifts I’ve created myself. Seeing someone’s face light up as they open a present is fun for me because they know alot of thought was put into that gift. However, I do buy gifts once in awhile.
As I was browsing UncommonGoods.com, I came across so many cool items that I had to share. (Just in case you’re a friend or family member reading this, my birthday is coming up…*hint* *hint*.)
I love this friendship necklace created by Kathy Bransfield, but it would also make a great anniversary gift.
I’ve always been attracted to maps and globes because I love to travel. This personalized anniversary push pin world map is a great keepsake. Check out more anniversary gifts here.
Who doesn’t love a spa day? On the bridesmaids gift page I came across this Spa in a Bag that is full of goodies made from natural ingredients.
I really like the combination of natural and industrial in this jewelry organizer made by Marion Cage McCollam. I actually like all of the cute home decor products.
For that special guy in your life who likes unique fashion, this skyline wooden tie by Adam Teague and Tim Paslay is perfect. It’s available in Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Austin skylines. Check out all the other gifts for men.
