uncommon gifts

Hey guys!  Today I've partnered with Uncommon Goods to share a super fun gift guide.  I have quite a few yogis, foodies, and diy-obsessed gals in my life, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite gifts for those ladies.  Uncommon Goods is a sweet online shop that features tons of unique, fun, and interesting gifts.   Most of their products are created right here in the USA, lots are handmade and/or eco-friendly, and about one-third of their entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials, which is awesome!  They also give back by donating a portion of each order to non-profit organizations like American Forests, Women for Women International, City Harvest, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).  I'm a pretty big fan of supporting companies that are committed to being environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and giving back.  Not only can you give a gift to someone you love, you're also giving back to organizations that help great causes.   It's pretty fun to browse through more gift ideas here, and if you're like me you're probably secretly window shopping for yourself as well as whoever you're buying a gift for!  Okay, so maybe I'm the yogi, foodie, diy junkie...

I know some yoginis with the most magical yoga dens full of candles, crystals, and tapestries.  I love the smell of essential oils and sage when I walk into their homes, it feels so warm and welcoming.  Last Christmas I got my favorite yogi friend a bunch of crystals as gifts and they were a hit!  The gilded amethyst paper weight in this collection I might just have to give myself because it's so gorgeous.  I have a secret little tradition of buying a crystal from the Wishing Stone in SeaTac Airport every time I have to fly somewhere, so I've got a growing collection of pretty shiny things on my bathroom windowsill.

Dan worked as a cook for years, so we have quite a few foodie friends who are discerning eaters and drinkers and love entertaining.  Unique serving dishes, exotic spices, and a special recipe journal are perfect gifts for the epicurean in your life.  The face mug kind of just cracks me up.

I've loved making my own body products and beer, so when I saw these little DIY products I thought they'd make perfect gifts for the homemade maven.  I have a friend whose talked about making her own kombucha for months!  I've seen homebrew beer kits before but never kombucha!  

They've got tons more awesome gift ideas here, with everything from jewelry to home decor.
