’Tis the season for our most love-hate love task: shopping for the impossible Valentine. It’s one thing to find the perfect bestie friendship bracelet, or box of chocolate. But once we’ve Skydanced past the gifts we know how to give, we’re left racking our brains for that one person who either insists they have everything, or wants nothing. (Sweet, finger-licking lies.) It’s more likely that giftee expects nothing, but would truly revel in a present that packs a sincere, but delightful punch. Something that feels specific and thoughtful. Enter Uncommon Goods.
If you’re new to Uncommon Goods, here’s the skinny: the e-tailer is a happy, highly curated corner of the web where the best and most unique gifts curl up and hold hands. There are DIY kits galore; from a personalized reel viewer to a mini root beer brewery. There are gifts for both the sensible folks in your life and the loosest cannons you know. (And of course, every type of hot sauce lover.) The site’s puzzles are instant classics, and the cheese boards? Très ample. Whatever sensory delight you land on, the present will always feel like a winner.
