While I do enjoy what’s in style and trendy, I’ve always prided myself on giving unique gifts. While you can usually find the uncommon present by accident in a number of stores, there’s one shop that caters exclusively to just that: the unique and uncommon.
I have been shopping Uncommon Goods for years (and even 12+ years ago when they went by Red Envelope!). Whether you’re looking for something personalized or just plain different, they have what you’re looking for.
I’ve complied a lengthy list of uncommon gifts for everyone on your list: pet lovers, couples, men, women, teens and kiddos.
